Compass app for Windows Phone 7
January 17, 2011 by Dave
|As per the request of an XDA user, I’ve put together a Compass application for Windows Phone 7 that will work (for now) on Samsung phones. Windows Phone 7 device guidelines dictate that each phone must have Compass hardware, but there is not a common API through which developers can access the hardware. Samsung includes support in their platform drivers, so I’ve taken advantage of that.
I have tested so far on the Samsung Focus, I suspect it will work on all Samsung Windows Phones.
