Android App of the Week: GPS Status

This is part one of Wednesday’s weekly segment highlighting amazing Android Apps. This week: GPS Status.

This little app is amazing. It connects to your GPS and gives you your live coordinates, a compass, acceleration, altitude, pitch/tilt of the phone and speed. Those little green dots are the actual locations of GPS satellites in the sky.

You can share your location in GMail, twitter or Google Maps. You can also lock in your location and it will help you navigate back to it.

Very simple app, but it’s great for getting your speed and direction in a car or something. It’s also great to see how many satellites are visible / fixed to troubleshoot GPS issues (if it doesn’t connect).

To download, scan the following QR code, or search “GPS status” in the Android Market.
