Find Directions and Geo-Tag Notes With Compass Android App

Almost all smartphone has a in-built compass which helps applications like Navigation, Maps to show your phone directions. This hardware can be accessed by applications, and there is no native application to show direction to you. While searching compass related applications, I found a decent app and it named as “Compass”. using Compass app you can view location display, direction of movement.
