    Is anybody working on a Pre app to enable easy satellite dish locating and pointing? These apps combine the Pre's web services with its gps and camera to help the user determine whether a proposed location for a TV satellite dish will have a clear view of the satellites. There are several such apps for the iPhone.

    You can see examples of the iPhone apps at "dishpointer dot com" - just scroll down the first page until examples of the apps show in your browser.

    This would be a really useful application.

    This would be a great application! However (and I could be wrong here) I think the lack of a magnetic compass in the Pre makes this kind of application less useful. While the GPS can pinpoint your location well it's not great for determining the direction you are pointing unless you are moving (even if it's only slowly).
