Default Looking for a Compass App

Please Login to Remove!

Just a simple, free app that will constantly show me a compass. Anything around like that? Thanks everyone.

Wirelessly posted (overwhelmingly stressed)

Not that I know of but would be a cool little app

I've been monkeying around with an app named BlackStar. Haven't done much with it but it has a compass and is free.

I've tried Blackstar for a few days now, but it never seems to find a sufficient satellite.

Been using Blackstar for awhile on my Bold. Simple, accurate and very basic. and responds quickly.

Use it when parking in a larger parking lot.

Like I said, I haven't done much with it yet, but I've noticed that unless I'm in a fairly clear area, I have the same issue. There might a settings that can be tweaked but I haven't checked yet.
