Good app but buggy at the moment

I have the Dorset pack, when I tap on a crag from the list it loads a completely different crag, for example when I tap on blacknor north it opens battleship back cliff, in general it's a really good app but this bug is really annoying

Developer Response ,

Sorry about that bug Casey - it’s fixed in the upcoming release. You should be able to fix it in the build you have now by changing the sort order of the crags with the sort button (two arrows at the top right), then changing it back. Drop us an email at if you have any other issues.

Cannot open: crashes

Hasn’t worked for ages.

Nb complete delete and reinstall fixes the bug, but not ideal when in climbing spot with poor signal!

Developer Response ,

Hi TiffTiffTiff121212... I’m very sorry you’ve encountered this issue. There’s a bug that we’re investigating that occasionally causes a database corruption, which prevents that app from launching.

We’ve not yet been able to isolate the cause, but we are actively looking into it.

Deleting the app and reinstalling it will fix it on your device.

Almost awesome

Useful app but fails to trump the equivalent guide books as it doesn’t scrape enough info from UKC. Sometimes the topo is out of date, and the best info is on the user comments on UKC (loose rock, dodgy anchor, etc). Also the average user grading from UKC is really helpful.
