* Search YouTube for "Sun Seeker app" for many other videos created by enthusiastic users
* IMPORTANT - Please ensure that Settings / Location Services / System Settings / Compass Calibration is switched ON. The app's 3D view will not work without it!
* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.
* 3D view screenshots are now saved at resolution of device, rather than lo-res.
* 3D view screenshot sharing has been expanded to include various new share destinations such as Facebook, Twitter, Messages, printing, etc.
* Replaced 3D view share icon with camera icon, as a picture is taken before the share options are offered
* Fixes issue where flat compass would remain blank when app started without gps availability, for example when in airplane mode
* Fixes possible crash when device has marginal internet connectivity
