  • Very inaccurate

    By Klon5688
    Very inaccurate. You have to already know the peaks to know what you’re looking at. It sometimes identifies peaks that are 180 degrees the other way. I emailed the designer, but he doesn’t seem to know how to fix it.
  • A gem of an app

    Went skiing in Switzerland and used the app for the first time on the Parpaner Rothorn. My dad used to know the names of all the peaks - I need some help - this app did perform flawlessly. What a great app to enjoy the big outdoors even more!
  • Doesn't work

    By Incredible waste of money
    Staying in Northern Washington state, tried to see what mountains are around me, app still showing Cascadia mountains in southern Washington. Completely wrong place by hundreds of miles.
  • Lacking.....

    By WoW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Only offers a few names of obvious peaks. Leaves out most. Considering I paid for this it was a big disappointment.
  • Fun and informative!

    By Chjsbny
    Have been using for a while on iphone6 .. other than a little trouble getting the image registered with the visible mountains (often in remote locations with negligible cell service), it has worked very well. It is really fun to be able to put a name on mountains both familiar and new!
  • Awesome Apo!

    I used this app on my Pacific Crest Trail thru hike and I continue to use it every time I go run or put my backpack on. It’s so awesome to know what mountains are around me!
  • Even works in Wisconsin!

    By CSholdt
    I don’t use PeakFinder a lot, not many mountains in Wisconsin, but it is by far my favorite app. I am forever demo’ing it to friends showing them the ar function by finding our famous Blue Mounds which rise about 950 feet above sea level. Yep, PeakFinder finds it! Can’t wait until I go to Alaska this spring. If I were forced to bring only one app, this would be it!! Awesome app!!
  • Easy to use

    Really good app. The AR is a nice feature. Helps you to seem like your an outdoor expert when you go on hikes with friends. I recommend this app.
  • Great app

    By Dirk_astro
    Really shows off the synergy between GPS, a camera, accelerometers, gyroscopes and an amazing database. I use it whenever I’m on vacation and take pictures in the mountains: just take a screenshot of the app looking at the same area you’re taking pictures of and you have a perfect record later on of what you were looking at. I add it to all my vacation albums. And everybody you show it to is just amazed at how well it works. A couple of minutes after I show them, they’re downloading it.
  • Very cool
