What's New in Version 3.2.8
••• Augmented reality •••
For a long time many of you have asked for an option to combine the image of the camera with the panorama drawing. I've finally implemented this feature in this newest version and so PeakFinder now also supports true augmented reality.
••• Image adjustment •••
By pressing the camera button you can overlay the image of your camera with the panorama drawing. Lookout for a prominent mountain around you or for the sun position. Then drag the panorama drawing to the correct postion of the camera image.
I use this app all the time. I hike a bunch in the mountains and being able to see the names of adjacent peaks helps me decide where to hike next. I’ve recommended this app to everyone I meet on the trail. Now that the developer has added AR and other features everyone who I show it too is very impressed. Such a simple idea but so cool. Keep up the good work!
Not only does this beautiful app have wonderful uses, it's so lovely to look at that I could just spend ages playing with it. Wonderful! Highly recommended for literally anyone-- whether you are just curious as to what that mountain over there is called or if you're a landscape photographer seeking the perfect vantage of a scene. Just fabulous.
Updates like Christmas
As a climber and mountaineer, I love this app. Most importantly, every update is a monumental improvement in the right direction. Looking forward to this gift that keeps on giving. Download this and give the creators their dues because this app ROCKS (get it?).
