Yankee Magazine's Leaf Peepr app helps fall-foliage fans find and report on the best and brightest colors in the United States.
Make foliage reports (we call them Peeps!) by posting photos, writing comments, and rating foliage status for your location.
The Peak Slider lets you rate foliage as either Green, Turning, Moderate, Peak, Fading, or Gone. The current foliage color is determined by averaging other ratings in a geographic area along with your Peeps.
Use the Foliage Map to see photos and find current foliage rated by hundreds of other leaf peepers.
Updated for the 2018 foliage season.
Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely love the concept, but this year the map is extremely inaccurate. Despite weeks of reporting leaves as still green, my county still appears as turning.
Doesn’t even do its most basic function properly; display the foliage map. Map is out of date or something, comes up with an error from Google. Also, reports just randomly pop on the screen. Don’t even bother with it.
Very happy for user reports
Not sure why there are so many critical reviews! I agree that more “peepers” would allow for more accurate results, but in my area (New England) I DO see enough reports to give a confident report.
The app could definitely be improved, but given its use is limited to just a month or so each year, it’s enough in my opinion.
Foliage predictors alone are nice, but user based reporting such as this one is an excellent supplement!
