While the PlayBook supports a plethora of various sensors like a gyroscope and a magnetometer (compass), hardly any developers have tapped into the latter. A new application has been produced by mappau OG, which utilizes the magnetometer in the BlackBerry PlayBook. Compass for the BlackBerry PlayBook doesn’t require any movement or GPS pickup to show which direction you are traveling.
- Real magnetic compass (no GPS and/or movement needed)
- Stunning graphics
- Swipe down for easy to understand calibration
