[APP][2.3+] Instago a smart map for newbies

Hi, my name is Theredsunrise and i am creator of an Android app Instago Street View Map:

Have you ever had a problem finding your car?
Or been lost in a city with no directions?
Or just been finding nearby places in your current location?

Instago has a Google Maps Street View window that updates according to your position and orientation, and an Eye-View simulation of where you are heading. Just perform a long click on the map and pick a choice:

1. Put a Pinpoint anywhere on the map to mark your destination place and the Navigation Arrow will guide you.
2. Or get a full screen of Google Maps Street View panorama, if available.

And if you are just exploring nearby places, Google Places service will help you finding them. More info (contact, website, thumbnail) about found place you get when you click it.

Smart idea. Ive watched a show where they used geo tags and camera. Would be cool to see something like that made

Nifty! Will buy "pro" if I find I am using it

Too many reminders about "pro." Smart enough to read it once or twice and get the message.
Canceling help tool-tips too difficult, but see below
If suggesting callibrating the compass, should offer choice to actually do so from the app.

BUG: Get a spurious map pane over various dialogs and also after closing the app.

Running on an LG P500, using a 4.4.2 Omni ROM. Note that some Google Maps options may not run well on this old device. Maps 7 gives jerky graphics and spontaneous reboots trying to overlay some of the views, and Maps 8 is already armv7-dependent so unusable.

Great app! Works like it should, and definitely gives you a better perspective about where you are.

One question though - Is there any way to make the transitions more fluid? I mean when you move around with your device, the map and the streetview display has a bit of a lag.
I'm using a Galaxy s2 with AOSP.

Thank you!
