Watch This App: Wear – Holo Compass – Android & Wear
Compass apps are not for everyone and if you’re lost and have your smartphone with you then you might as well just fire up Google Maps but for the more navigation savvy people out there, a compass is their best friend to point them in the right direction.
Holo Compass has been around as an app for sometime and has now embraced the goodness of Android Wear to get this good-looking compass onto your Wear device. This add free app boasts smooth operation and what is probably the best looking compass design out there and uses the clean Holo styling that works great for getting that minimal look which makes it easy to use, it doesn’t need a data connection to work either.
The app keeps it basic when it comes down to navigation by just displaying your heading and direction with north simply displayed on the outer compass ring, all of which are customizable so you can change the colour and style.
Don’t get lost any more, navigate to the play store and get it downloaded.
