Sign [APP][4.1+][SOURCE] PulseCompass - Pure Vanilla Compass!





Hi XDA! You might have seen my previous app, PulseFlash which was made in the process of learning Android app development. This is once again made for the same reason.

This tiny Compass app was made Graphics Designer new to the app development scene, thus it is very clean. I've utilized most of Android's framework, making this app fit right in!



This app doesn't need any permissions from Android. The hardware used is sensors already available.



jfeinstein10 for his amazing SlidingMenu library.
A lot of folks over at Stackoverflow.
@SpaceCaker who is my personal Android Wikipedia, didn't help me in this case, but awesome guy anyway.



The main source code is available at my Github, I did not share the graphics, nor styling files. Feel free to use the code, but please do not recreate my app, or something very similar and then share it publicly.





Please do not mirror - I'd like to track my downloads

Not yet no. I am not capable to pay the Google Developer fee yet.

I'm having a question. You're using TYPE_ORIENTATION for the sensor. Isn't this deprecated since API Level 6?

Yes it is, thanks for pointing out!

But I found that when I use a workaround I end up needing more permissions which I don't want to do. Anyhow thanks for the heads up!
