Unfortunately: no. It does not look like mobile safari has access to the compass (not even through the geolocation api I hinted at before).

In an app: sure. In the browser: probably not.
The point of what I released yesterday is not using gyroscopes to navigate panoramas (I used accelerometers and gyros to view panoramas on a tabletpc in 2005, and many iphone and android apps did similar things since then), but using the iphone gyroscope to navigate panoramas *in the browser*. Without an app download.
