All your RockHounding needs in one App separated in 4 easy to use sections. Features a large database of over 160 sites and over 60 rocks and gems with full screen pictures. Add your own sites to personalize the App or include your own finds.
SITES - With over 160 sites, you can choose a site with the Map that also shows your location, or with the List which is separated by State. Each site has a description of the area and what you may find there. You can even add your own sites by plotting the GPS coordinates on the map. RockHound was not intended to be a complete guide to every site, they are mostly in the US, but that sites you add can be anywhere in the world.
ROCKS - Over 60 different rocks, minerals, gems with description and pictures of each.
TIPS - General tips about RockHounding, Tools needed, Rock Tumblers. There are also program tips to get the most out of RockHound!
FAVORITES - You have the option to select sites as Favorite Sites. The Favorite Sites can have pictures attached to them that you import from your Photo Library or take with the camera. That way you can keep track of what you find at each site.
What's New in Version 2.0
Complete update using the latest technologies. Pressing on the location of a site brings up Maps for getting directions or full screen viewing. Pressing the return button on top takes you right back where you left off in Rockhound. Photos are now managed with the standard Photo Library for easier organization and smaller app size. Marking a site as a Favorite now lets you make changes to it without affecting the original. This makes it easy to update the location to your last dig or include other minerals you may have found.
Missing critical info and ability
Since this app is been around for so long, I thought there would be a lot more sites. It also does not take advantage of GPS to be able to add in your current location as a potential site. Could be a fantastic app, if they took the time to actually add in an offsite to make the purchase worth it. You can't search by what you want to find, so there is no way to really make use of the sites that are there.
