Height Finder quickly and accurately calculates the altitude and elevation at your current location and at other locations around the world.
• Calculates current altitude or elevation
• Uses GPS for accurate altitude results
• Uses global mapping database for elevation
• Can display elevation on your home screen
• Can display all readings in feet or metres
• Shows increases and decreases as you move
• Custom artwork and animations
• Completely ad-free
Height Finder calculates your current altitude and elevation both indoors and outdoors, and even in areas with no network coverage.
The data is updated in real time as the device moves, and an on-screen arrow indicates the increase or decrease in altitude.
Tapping the on-screen reading will toggle between feet and meter display modes.
For best results outdoors and in areas with no network coverage, launch the app and allow the device a couple of minutes to obtain a strong GPS signal.

Fun app to have!
I live in some mountains, finding information on the altitude or elevation is not always easy to find. This cool app got the numbers right for two locations I knew the altitude of. Way to go for accuracy. Today's cartoon featured " superman". What a great way to introduce children to the factoids of their surroundings. Thanks for making this app!
