    A simple project for a capable dev

    An inclinometer substitute for a DirecTv install tech. I have a great idea for a satellite finder app.
    The idea is to use compass, accelerometer, and camera to determine a position in the sky for line of site to satellites.
    Like Layar and similar apps that superimpose images on the screen using the compass and gps location, I imagined an app that can superimpose an image or spot where the satellites are in the sky so that we can find the best location without obstacles.
    Now this can get more complicated further on in development, because the satellites are in a different position depending on your location. We typically go by zipcodes with a corresponding azimuth/elevation to shoot for from a database.

    A simple start would be an app that I could use in my location with just a specific azimuth and elevation to superimpose a spot on the camera. If you wanted to continue development on a fine-tuned universal app that could calculate by location, that would be awesome and could bring in some money considering it would already be replacing a $200 tool.

    If anyone is interested, email me at graymayre@gmail.com.
    Of course this could be my opportunity to start my own app development, but I don't know where to start. I barely know how to create a virtual device.

    *$&%@ someone beat me to it and charges $20 for it. Well I guess I could still do it for myself.

    i wish google sky had the clark belt with the most common orbital slots labeled in it. thats all you really need.

    firing up Satellite Finder / Dish Pointing Calculator with Google Maps | DishPointer.com on a droid browser should give you a nice top down los map, mag direction and the elevation to any orbital slots you want to find too.

    Yeah, but I got all psyched about making it myself and getting a dev account to distribute. I guess I could make one still and make it better and sell it for cheaper for some competition, but is that taboo or anything in the android market? Like, would I get slammed here if I did something like that?
