PeakVisor is the best app for any mountain outdoor adventure. It labels all the mountain and peak names along with their elevations in your camera view. PeakVisor comes with a number of handy features including 3D maps, flyover, import old photos, annotated photo sharing, peaks and mountain huts information, and many more - just the kind of multi-purpose gadget that outdoor enthusiasts love.

Mountains have a mysterious aura that one must feel and see to believe. The jutting peaks and majestic valleys of a range like the Great Canadian Rockies or the European Alps are a visual treat that is beyond compare.

Hiking up a mountain is a physical challenge that outdoor enthusiasts across the world love to take up. Trekking across the world to discover new ridges brings about an unrivaled rush of excitement. What’s the one thing missing? A tool that can inform the hikers of their surrounding environment as they make the ascent to the summit. That used to be the case until the PeakVisor app came onto the market!

The PeakVisor app has made it possible to discover the names and altitudes of all the glorious peaks in the world via your phone. With PeakVisor all you need to do is open the app and point it towards the mountain peaks in your viewing area - and voila: you get the name and altitude of all the ridges. It is informative no matter where you happen to find yourself, whether it is halfway up a mountain or lounging in a chalet at the summit.

Some of the features include:

* 3D Mountain Panorama *
The 3D Mountain Panorama will overlay a 3D terrain model onto the objects in the camera view. This digital overlay will facilitate better recognition of any mountain, it will adjust the panorama should you wish to locate and name all the mountains in sight.

* Offline Ready *
Internet connection is not a prerequisite for the PeakVisor app. All the data is downloadable and ready for use no matter where you are or what altitude you might be reaching.

* Global Reach *
PeakVisor covers all the major and minor mountain ranges in the world. Our app is consistently growing to include more peaks and ranges that outdoors enthusiasts are passionate about.

* Photo Sharing *
Why don’t you let your friends and family in on the amazing adventure you are undertaking? PeakVisor has a photo option that captures the digital overlay of your horizon, completes it with names and altitudes of all the peaks in view. This just adds some zest and the feeling of accomplishment to a trip that is already exhilarating and confidence boosting.

* More than just Mountains *
PeakVisor knows not only 746.000 mountains but also shows all the castles and mountain huts in your area as well.

* 3D Compass and Altimeter *
The compass is a helpful tool for outdoor enthusiasts who have not charted a clearly defined route for their hike. The altimeter shows the altitude of the user.

* Sun Trail *
The Sun Trail reflects the movement of the sun and is super handy in positioning the compass and advising photographers a perfect time for a snap.

What's New

Version 2.7

This week we worked hard on wishing summer weather and the fastest arrival of a hiking season. It seems our dreams didn't come true, at least in many regions. We will continue our attempts to attract wonderful weather next week. Meanwhile, we made some significant improvements in the app.
First of all, the app consumes significantly less memory now. We hope that would make the app much more stable.
Second, we improved landscape rendering in situations when you are looking from a steep slope or surrounded by rocky peaks, so they don't limit your peak identification abilities.
Finally, we added a great new category of Britain's 40 Finest mountains. This might open a new chapter in the peak bagging activity in the UK. Who will be the first to collect all of them? If you are far from the UK then we have another list for you! Find an Ultra prominent peak and photo it! There are just slightly more than 1.500 Ultra mountains in the world.

Editors’ Notes

Now off to the mountains!

So far, so good! (Edited 3/8/18)

Climb Junky

Downloaded the app, open it and the screen constantly flickers. Apple should offer refunds for apps that are junk and purchased from the App Store. If I could give this 0 or negative stars, I would.
*updated 3/3/18*
I downloaded the latest update and so far the app is working very well.

Developer Response

Hi Climb Junky, that's awesome that the app is working after the update. Please let us know of any issues, we are working hard to resolve all the problems immediately. Meanwhile, if you like the app and it is working well then it would be wonderful to change 1 star rating as well ;-)

Will not open. Crashes repeatedly.


His concept is very cool. I spend a lot of time in the mountains and love identifying peaks. This will come in handy........if it will ever open. It crashes every time. It appears to be downloading some files to run and hard crashes. I have yet to use the app. I have an iPhone 6+. Would rate higher if it actually worked.

Developer Response

Hello, I'm sorry to hear that the app was crashing. We are regularly bring optimisations to make the app require less resources. Hopefully, with the latest updates it started working? Otherwise, you could reboot your phone, it clears all the memory, so the app should work fine after that. iPhone 6+ has enough power to run the app without any issues. In any case I Kindly ask you to contact us via email at so we could make sure the app is working fine and useful to you.
