    Several of us tried to get this all to work on prominent peaks near Vail, all unsuccessfully on my Iphone6

    I absolutely love this app and whenever I show another hiker the magic of this app they also want to purchase this app. I have used this app in the northeast and west coast and each time I get great results. I enjoy the photo feature as well. Finally, I know each of the mountains I am looking at in the distance. Kudos to the app developers.

    Disappointed that the app only names prominent peaks. I live in Colorado and we have thousands of peaks, very few are named in the app. Frustrating to be looking at a beautiful peak with no idea what the name is - that’s why I purchased the app. Look for something else.

    If you are more advanced, this is a poor app. It has smaller mountains (or hills) near cities but three tallest peaks in national forests it does not have? How could the app not have the second tallest peak in the Oregon coastal range?

    Unable to use app. Preliminary download of info led to error message every time. Waste of money.
  • Must have if you do any hiking

    Loving the new AR and capture features. I’ve had this app for a while and use it all the time. It’s a real crowd pleaser with friends!

    My friend bought a peak finder app for her Droid based smart phone and I was so impressed with it that I had to get one for my iPhone. Sadly the one she has is not made for the iOS software. So I got this one. Two major flaws I’ve noticed: -It’s often inaccurate and you have to line it up manually. This requires you to match up their line drawing with the mountain range you are trying to place. This can be a little ambiguous and has left me feeling less than confident in knowing for certain which peak is which. -Second major flaw, you can’t just snap a photo of the peaks and their names, you have to do a screen shot. That requires pushing the power button and home button simultaneously. Doing that requires two hands and readjusting one’s position. I can’t simply pull my phone out quickly, point and shoot. I have to stop, make sure I have two hands available and then do a screen shot, which is a bit trickier for me to pull off while trying to hold the phone up and hold it steady. My excitement for this app disappeared quickly after purchase. I’d actually like to return it if that was a possibility.
  • Cool app.

    What the developer does not tell you when purchasing this app is after making the initial $4.99 purchase, you need to buy each state or lacation as a seperate purchase. Example, if you live in the State of Washington, you'll need to purchase the App for $4.99 and and extra $0.99 for Washington State, etc.
