The Canadian Rockies
By Mountain Apps Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Connect to every mountain in the Canadian Rockies -all 1560 of them.
With this app, you'll always know the name of that mountain you're looking at and why it has that name.
Here's how it works:
-If you're on the highway, hiking, sitting on top of a peak, or relaxing on the deck of your home with a mountain view, you'll see your GPS position on your choice of a standard or satellite image map. Icons for all 1560 peaks are overlaid on the map.
-Tap on the icon to find out the name of the peak you're looking at, its elevation, the distance to it, and its bearing. As well, the naming history of the mountain is displayed.
-If you're interested in a particular peak, there's an index with the names of all 1560 peaks in the Rockies. Tap on the one you're interested in and you'll see where it's located with respect to your location. You'll also see the distance to the peak and its bearing.
-If you have a cellular connection or wifi available, tap on an icon to link directly to the peak's page on www.peakfinder.com, where you'll find detailed information and photos of the mountain.
*Remember ... GPS functionality does not require a cellular connection.

I love where this app is headed, or where I hope it's headed...
The accuracy is spot as far as mountains go, however it took me more time than it should to find any major landmarks other than other mountains. Having cities and highways overlaid or even a gps and location function would make this app 5 stars for me. Keep up the good work!
Love the update to this. Great resource for a simple look at the rockies. Even use it when I’m hiking sometimes.
Great idea - needs roads/towns
This is a great idea, and it has huge potential.
It is a bit cumbersome to find what mountains are where without the hiway/roads marked and named.
Thanks for what is here - we can make it work!
