Great app, would rate higher but...
This app is amazing in many ways. It is easy to use and very intuitive. It is easy to export pictures with just the peaks you want labeled. It is really fun use while hiking and I have used extensively on numerous hikes in the NE Appalachian mountains with no difficulty. I was excited to use the app on an upcoming trip to Thailand and Laos. I downloaded the area before the left, but every time I use the app in this region it tells me there is a better region to use, despite being in the middle of the region I downloaded. So I tried to download this data, using a good WiFi connection and every time at 30mb I get an error message and it does finish. I have 1.5gb available on my older model iPhone. A more specific error message and the ability to resume interrupted downloads would be excellent features. Also the region I downloaded has very few of the prominent mountains and hills labeled despite my father in law knowing the names of them. This would be a five star for use in the states, but was a little disappointed that it did not work as well in Thailand and Laos. Every hiker should check this app out though. It is super fun and all my hiking buddies have purchased the app after using mine on hikes.
Not very user friendly
My friend bought a peak finder app for her Droid based smart phone and I was so impressed with it that I had to get one for my iPhone. Sadly the one she has is not made for the iOS software. So I got this one.
Two major flaws I’ve noticed:
-It’s often inaccurate and you have to line it up manually. This requires you to match up their line drawing with the mountain range you are trying to place. This can be a little ambiguous and has left me feeling less than confident in knowing for certain which peak is which.
-Second major flaw, you can’t just snap a photo of the peaks and their names, you have to do a screen shot. That requires pushing the power button and home button simultaneously. Doing that requires two hands and readjusting one’s position. I can’t simply pull my phone out quickly, point and shoot. I have to stop, make sure I have two hands available and then do a screen shot, which is a bit trickier for me to pull off while trying to hold the phone up and hold it steady.
My excitement for this app disappeared quickly after purchase. I’d actually like to return it if that was a possibility.
Please update to the newest version. Now you can take a highres snapshot easily.
