DO NOT USE FOR AVIATION. Will not work in a coordinated turn. Looks cool though. However, crashes the phone CONSTANTLY.

HTC Desire 2.2 - continues to run in background, using 100% CPU. I have to kill it to stop it draining battery.

by James the 11/10/2010

Developer, please get the jittery-ness out of the program, then this will be Great. Now not so good.

by chriswohlgemuth the 10/10/2010

Impractical, jumpy, and will crash your phone

by Spike the 9/23/2010

This will be a great little app that will replace three others I have but, only once it stops running my CPU flat out in the background!

by Larry the 9/7/2010

Works but desperately needs buffering. The compass twitches like it's vibrating with every movement.

It work with 2.1 but it stopped working when I updated to froyo 2.2. N1

Could be awsome but needs to be smoother like the 3d marine compass

by Brian the 5/22/2010

Took it on a flight yesterday and it doesnt read rolls in a coordinated turn. Doubt this is the designers fault though.

This gets a 5 star rating once it is smoothed/buffered.
