I hope you know you've already made it to the front page over at life hacker. Great job. Lol

BTW this works great on my mytouch 4G.
Thanks.

Tip from personal experience, I find this easier when doing it opposite from the video.
In other words instead of turning it away from you, bring it from away towards you as a flying in sort of way.
Hope this helps.

Great idea, very handy app, working fine on rooted GT I9000 (JVP) with supercurio's kernel. Using the Pro version from the market. It's kinda hard to be accurate with the flicks lol, but I guess practice and a play around with the settings will change that.
Good work mate, will be following this one
GT-i9000 retired to .flac/amp duty
