iphone-3gs-digital-compassWe have seen the digital compass as an application itself. There are also videos about the compass being used in Apple’s GPS system via Google Maps. But we’ve never seen it in a game-like application.

iPhone Developer Ziconic made an app that uses the compass to look around inside the app. The app is called “AirCoaster 3D” and gives you the ability to take place in a huge roller coaster through the air. Nothing special so far, but the beauty comes from the compass. I can spend another couple of sentences, but like they say ‘a picture says more than a thousand words’. So just watch the video below and you’ll know what I mean.

The compass integration is still in developement. The video is a prototype. The app itself can already be found in the App Store. AirCoaster 3D is available for $0.99 in the App Store. The compass feature will be added in a future update.
