Still needs some work, when calibrating the roll does not change to zero. Also the compass would say East at 91° yet I was facing West. This app has potential, but needs more work.

Calibration flaw Calibration zeroes to device defaults without regard to device orientation. it should zero to device orientation. In landscape mode calibrate is 90 degrees off

Its definitely ME (awesome app)! I just had to get this one in my compass collection...yes, I have a folder full of many of these compass apps in my phone; seeing them excites me. I'd like to see more (different) kinds of these gyro compass apps; each depicting the style found in aircraft from Boeing, Airbus, Cessna, Gulfstream, Space Shuttle, etc...including the electronic versions (displayed on aircraft monitors).
