Use the Sun or the Moon to find North.

Use GoogleMaps to find your location and where you need to go, then use Sun Compass to find out which way to actually start walking.

WARNING: This app will not automagically find North, but it will help you find it.

You must see the sun or the moon to be able to find North with this App.

Very Cool App

:
Works kind of like a reverse sundial to find N. The app plots the position of the sun during the day as seen in the screenshot. Then with iPod screenside up you touch the compass dial to move sun icon to match the sun in the sky and you've got directions. Or you can just turn the whole iPod like I did at first! This also works with the moon but I think the sun provides slightly more accurate readings, maybe because it's farther away, slower? This also seems to work without Internet access as long as you have your general location already input either manually or through auto-locate or you can enter latitude/longitude to find your location without Internet access. So be sure to take care of that before leaving for the wilderness.

This is a really well executed app that helps ease the pain of the lack of GPS. In fact this will work even without a GPS signal or internet to get you headed in the right direction. It works and looks far better than any cheapo magnetic compass you could buy, never mind at $.99! I haven't seen anything else quite like it in the store, at any price. Vlad sounds guilty for charging even this much, but it's Apple's minimum, and hey it makes the price literally a song. Even a cheapskate like me is happy to support this kind of effort. Thanks!

Useful app.

:
This app works really well. I like the presentation too, it's pretty polished.

I'd say it's worth a buck.

Awesome Application!

:
Simple but great app. Very nice interface, an excellent compass. It doesn't work well when it's very cloudy :))
