Polar Alignment for Star Adventurer

I recently picked up the Skywatcher Star Adventurer and have been doing polar alignment with apps on my phone (compass and level) due to having trouble seeing octans. Its been ok, but when shooting above 200mm I can only do 20sec exposures before star trailing kicks in.

I've just learnt about the ipolar for the iOptron mount, kind of wishing that I had of gone down this road instead now. With that in mind and sticking with what Ive got, is the QHY Polemaster the only option for the Star Adventurer or are Skywatcher working on an equivalent to iPolar?
