Yet another reason popped up last week to get a waterproof case for your iPhone, this one, an augmented reality IOS app that overlays the lines of a compass on the actual surroundings you see on your screen. Compass Eye was developed by a sailor, and even without the other features, having a fully-gimballed electronic compass on your phone would probably be worth the 5 bucks. But it’s got more – bearing lines, digital zoom, live mapping, selectable true or magnetic North, and more – and for the tens of thousands of us that are already using our phones for chores afloat, it’s probably worth a look. Thanks to Giz for the heads up.
