Use your cell phone as a compass. By rotating the phone so that the sun and/or moon icons match their location in the sky, the top of the phone will indicate true north.

The app also shows the moon phase, time the sun and moon rise and set and begin and and end of twilight. Optionally, it can show the direction of any location with presets for Mecca, Jerusalem or Bahji, cities that are sacred in the Muslim, Jewish and Baha’i faiths respectively.

Bugs: You are supposed to be able to set locations by moving a pointer on a world map. However on iDEN phones the pointer doesn’t move. Instead, when the map displays press the menu key and choose the option to specify location using a three or four character airport code.
