Discontinued App

Description

Find your location on the Earth like the sailors did, without GPS or the internet, just using your iPod or iPhone and the Sun. This paid version uses your sightings to get a fix on your location to within a few miles. You can email your sightings, use only a subsample to get a fix. It requires a camera and accelerometer. This is not a simulation. You actually measure the location of the Sun with the build-in camera and the app figures out where you are. TIP: Cover your lens with eclipse glasses or a bit of Mylar balloon to get a smaller image and better fix on the Sun. TIP: The accelerometer and camera axes are not necessarily aligned, so take two sightings one with the home button at the top and one and the bottom.
