This app is amazing and so accurate, it's unbelievable. Whoever created it is a genius.

Customer Reviews

New music :( (4 stars)
Upgrade does away with the old music for more intrusive sounds. That was a downgrade really.

Starwalk (3 stars)
Like the old music better, gave kind of an eerie sound, this new music is not suited for this program. Maybe set it up giving you a choice, old or new.

Thamks for update (4 stars)
Great to have compass orientation working so well. Thought I'd lost my sense of direction
