    I just opened up my Yelp app and noticed that when I use the oracle feature which uses the compass, it is way off in regards to east/west? Anyone else?

    I ALWAYS make sure I calibrate my compass because I use my navigation.

    Noticed mine was off too. I calibarted and checked again, was still off. Then I noticed it works properly holding it in landscape but in portrait it is backwards. This is with maps and google sky
