What's new in version 1.5
+ Fixed the altitude issue in the email

+ Fixed a problem in email with the map

+ Added a flashlight button which turns on the front LED (button is only visible on iPhone 4 and 4S)

+ automatic address detection: If the gps accuracy is good enough and an internet connection is available, your current address is displayed in a scrolling label.
In this case the address is also added to the email.
The address is refreshed every minute if your location has changed more than 10 meters.
