    To the mods: feel free to move or delete this post because I did search this topic and found nothing. Anyways, just sitting here I found a feature I haven't heard about before. I'm running 10.2.1.2941 on my Q10. When I tapped the stock compass app and rotated the phone 90 degrees vertically the compass turned into a bubble level, as shown below.

    Edit for some reason CB10 won't allow me to attach my screen shot. I'll upload and edit this on my laptop.
    Edit 2. Try again.

    Ehh... where's your bubble level? I only see the side of a rotated compass, which as been there since the beginning.

    Folks,

    It's not a level, it's simply the side of the compass showing only degrees.

    OOHHH.... the whole "level" part flew right by me! LoL I thought he was just commenting the different style once rotated vertically.

    But I suppose it could work as somewhat a leveler if 100% accuracy isn't necessary. I just tested it and it's about 90% accurate as a leveler.
