iOS 7 Compass App Has A New Trippy Level Feature Too


Not only did the Compass app in iOS 7 get a healthy dose of Jony Ive minimalism, it’s also got a new, ultra-minimalist level feature as well.

To access the feature just swipe left from the main screen of the Compass app. The app uses the iPhone’s accelerometer to show the user how many degrees off of zero a surface is. If a surface is flat, the iPhone locks into green screen.

    I still feel like this was unneeded. How many folks really use the Compass app. Probably not that many. They could have easily just ditched this along with weather, stocks and calculator and done just fine with folks downloading which ever one they might want
