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.
Developer, please get the jittery-ness out of the program, then this will be Great. Now not so good.
Impractical, jumpy, and will crash your phone
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!
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
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.
