I’ve made a compass app, but not a typical circular type compass but a horizontal scrolling type.
The orange coloured cardinal is just for devving purposes.
While developing the app, I’m using a holder to keep the device still and safe while attached to USB cable, this means the device is sat at an angle for good visibility, but this makes the compass so jittery, I can barely do anything with it and have to keep tilting and moving the device to check my progress…what a PITA, the scrolling of the cardinal points goes across the screen faster than Concorde did to Paris.
Of course, if I lay the device on the table and rotate it, readings do settle and are accurate, but tilt the device slightly and compass goes nuts!
Is this just an inherent feature/problem of the sensor?, is there something I can do to compensate?
I tried to catch the jittering on video, but I only have my Jolla1 and the poor framerate almost makes the jittering disappear.
