Compass Eye: I’m Sailing Away

From Gizmodo:

An augmented reality app that's actually useful is a rare find. Compass Eye produces a real time compass that's overlaid on top of the iPhones camera view. Sailors can set multiple bearings and switch between magnetic north and true north.

The app is marketed specifically for sailing, but it can be used for hiking, biking, really anything where you need to set a specific bearing. The app's compass works way better than the iOS default compass and I don't have to wave my iPhone in the air every time I launch the app. The app also features a camera zoom.
