Nor should they. It would be like trying to dip the ocean dry with a teaspoon. 
does have a set of guideline an app must meet before it's allowed in the App 

Developers, whether for Apple or a Windows desktop or an IBM mainframe need to 
sure the stuff they write is going to work on it's target platform.

That said, the Compass app comes with the iPhone, so I assume (yeah, I know) 
it's an 
Apple bit 'o software.
