Positional is a location based app that utilizes the phone's GPS hardware and fetches various details of the current latitude and longitude data like Altitude, Speed, Address and similar other information and show it in easily understandable format to the user. Alongside this main functionality of being a location app, Positional also provides a separate panel for Compass, Level, Trail and Clock, and they serve their own purpose as the name suggests.
Compass provides info related to direction using Geomagnetic field, Clock fetches the time related information based on the current location, time zone and also sun's information like Sunset, Sunrise, Twilight and many other info while the level can be used to get the plain deviation info and for many other purposes. Trail can be used for marking locations on the map and create a travel journal anywhere on the map using many contextual icons.
On top of all the core functionality, Positional is a highly polished app and provides another layer of a very carefully handcrafted minimal designs that organizes every information in a very pleasant way with amazing and beautiful physics based animations and still maintains to do what a location app is supposed to do.
Positional's app interface is customized completely independent of the native APIs and everything is created completely from scratch to give the app a unique design structure and add many features without using too much device memory, making the whole app very lightweight.
