Compass app for Windows Phone 7

As per the request of an XDA user, I’ve put together a Compass application for Windows Phone 7 that will work (for now) on Samsung phones.  Windows Phone 7 device guidelines dictate that each phone must have Compass hardware, but there is not a common API through which developers can access the hardware.  Samsung includes support in their platform drivers, so I’ve taken advantage of that.

As always, you can download the XAP and source code.  A developer-unlocked Windows Phone is required.  This app will not work on Dell, HTC or LG phones as of this posting.

I have tested so far on the Samsung Focus, I suspect it will work on all Samsung Windows Phones.
