Two missing components on "sky map" app

Hello All I have downloaded skymap and Skeye astronomy apps, neither work on my new Samsung A10 phone. Skymap tells me that a built in compass and accelerometer are needed and one is missing. What do I do please? Regards

Just read a Review of the Samsung A10. It does not have a compass built in

You've done what I would have done but, I guess, if it says Built In, it means 'built in' not an added App.

Yes I think I understand, it means that the Samsung A10 will not do astronomy apps Am I right? Thank for help by the way.

No, you're not right or, for that matter, wrong.

The Astronomy Apps that you chose, needed a "Built in" Compass and Accelerometer. There may be Apps that don't make this requirement
