Technology is making huge progresses with every year and Window 8 tablets are right in the middle. Your Windows 8 slate can do so many things, and yes, if you were wondering, there are even Windows 8 compass apps that you can use to see cardinal directions.
Compass+ isn’t the single compass app available for Windows 8 users, but it’s the one that I like the most and have tested it both on my Windows 8.1 tablet and my desktop laptop and can vouch for its usability. Of course, if you will use it on a Windows 8 laptop or any device that doesn’t have the magnetic sensor built-in, it will only tell you the location.
