Description

Was $1.99 USD now Free!

Body Compass enhances your sense of direction by physically alerting you (quick vibrate or sound) each time you are pointing North. Find out where you’re headed without ever having to look at your device. Many options available to customize settings. This app becomes truly addictive and a must have tool in your tool belt of apps.

Cool map integration allows the map to rotate with you to help orient yourself via a satellite map.

Great for drivers, hikers, bikers, visually impaired, or those who want to impress their friends.

Don't forget to get the Pro version if you like the Free version.

This innovative app will help train your body’s sense of direction. Studies have shown that people who are aware of their direction at all times are better able to spatially orient themselves. As a result their sense of direction improves dramatically even after they’ve stopped using the device.

Direction is something that humans can’t detect innately. To understand direction the human brain needs to be trained. Birds and some other species have additional senses that allow them to sense direction, but unfortunately humans were only given five senses. With the right tools (or apps) human senses can be enhanced. We can take advantage of the brain’s plasticity and train it by feeding it input from external sources like touch and sound.

This innovative app was inspired by a 2007 Wired.com article by Sunny Baines: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/15.04/esp.html. In this article Sunny talks about various research efforts in the field of “Spatial Orientation Enhanced Systems” (SOES) and the invention of the “feelSpace belt”. Early research, funded by NASA, in this area showed that people were better able to use their innate senses to help orient themselves in flight with the use of tactile stimulation.

This same concept has now come to mobile devices via the Body Compass. This app will use built-in Compass functionality to help orient users through the use of tactile stimulation (sound or vibration). Users of such systems report better special orientation and improved ability to map out directions in their head.
