    Whenever I play CroMag Rally it acts as if I'm tilting it either side on and off when I'm holding it still.

    In MeetBubbles, it constantly goes up and down 0.1 degrees even if it's left perfectly still.

    Is this normal or should the accelerometer be exact. Should I take it back?

    Sounds like it needs recalibrating. I'm not sure if an app can do this... you might need to take it back to the Apple store.

    check the return policy and get a new one. quickly. i bought a psp from them and it was a huge hassle to get a new one when the one i got from them had a cracked screen.

    I don't like the idea of going back to them and saying it shakes whenever I'm playing games. I don't think it'll fly with them.

    Can I just confirm - this isn't normal?

    That happens with mine too, not in all apps. Its just cromag rally. If you play CrashBandicoot, it doesn't happen with it...Its just cromag is VERY sensitive.
