Many iPhone users favorite application is called the Distant Suns and it has been updated to be able to run on the iPhone 3G. It increases its reality features which are great. It means that when your phone is pointed in the sky, the direction that you are pointing will be figured out by the program. It will give you an exact match of what you are really seeing up in the sky. This is excellent especially for those who want to stroll outside so that they can easily figure out the stars.
This new iPhone update is for the 3Gs only and a few additional features will be on its way for the earlier iPhone models. Well, of course, those older iPhones does not have the compass feature. There are some other changes such as the UI tweaks and the capability to set the default of sound effects to “off”.
