    This app has helped me identify peaks countless times on hikes. I often take photographs on hikes, and thanks to PeakFinder I now know what I’m shooting! Best of all, we traveled to Taiwan, and after downloading the data I could get the same information there! Amazing.
  • One of the coolest apps

    This app works very (especially after some kinks were worked out early on) to help identify the peaks near you. Very helpful and fun. Recommend to all.
  • Easy to use, updated often!

    Love having this app when I’m out exploring and can identify peaks, especially when I’m seeing them from a new angle.
  • Yikes!

    Update: I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app again. It seems to be working for the most part! I’ll see what happens when I travel next week. I saw a few posts about it getting “stuck” in a location. I think maybe that’s what mine is/was doing? Original: I don’t know what it is about this app but it’s never worked for me. I’m often in southern CO, northern AZ and southern NV and it’s laughably wrong. I’m currently in NV and it’s telling me peaks in Vegas are actually peaks from central CA! It’s like this all the time. It’ll tell the mountains in front of me are actually 10 mile behind me, etc. Yes, it’s updated. I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro, do not have a magnetic case, and all of my other apps that use GPS/compass work perfectly fine.
  • Great app, one request

    Love this app, but one request! It looks like the app uses GPS to find your location, but it assumes you are on the ground. Would it be possible to use either GPS altimeter or baro altimeter to approximate your actual altitude? I use this app from my plane when I’m flying and want to know what peak I’m looking at. But the perspective always assumes you are on the ground looking up at the peak. If it could adjust the perspective for the viewers actual altitude would be perfect!
  • Highly recommended

    I can’t recommend this app enough. It is incredibly functional and, after reviewing the clear and simple instructions on the developer website, easy to use. And it’s just plain fun for any level of explorer.
  • Hiking Alone

    For when there’s not THAT GUY to tell everybody what they’re looking at.
  • One of my favorite outdoor apps!

    This app is such a joy to use. I frequently find myself opening it up upon reaching a summit and using the camera overlay to identify all the visible peaks.
