    I just purchased the app and played with it for an hour and so. I share
    your enthusiasm. My phone is semi-smart (no accelerometer) so cannot use
    the point and shoot feature. I have done theoreticals with it using a
    known position and HC's from various almanacs. Even with a 1
    decimal-point input (it allows 2) I'm obtaining intercepts in the 0!07
    range. not too shabby.
    
    I especially like the declination/deviation feature. Checked it out
    against  and it seems
    to be spot on for my location. Being old school I do use the above
    website to update my paper charts for variation every season, as well as
    checking out the boat's compass deviation. A poor man's sun
    compass/pelorus using a rotating plastic (drawing) compass with an inner
    and outer circle from a craft store and gimballed box for boats new to
    me remains an unfinished winter project.
    
    I'm unfamiliar with the e-mail yourself feature you mentioned. Would be
    kind enough to post a cookbook explanation?
    
    On a side note, if Hien is looking for an image of a veteran sextant
    master, how about the picture of our own discussion-group member in an
    inflatable in a back-yard pool? Just sign the model release form.... ;-)
