It allows sorting by distance or by Trustee callsign as well as filtering by band and radius in miles or kilometers.

If we do not have your repeaters listed...please do not refund or give us a bad rating...add repeaters at http://add.rfinder.net or request an add or update from the app.. Don't forget LAT/LON (in decimal), use periods as decimals, please.
The application accesses our Worldwide Repeater Directory and scanner directory for Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) but only stores information for repeaters within approximately 80 miles (125 km) from your location on your handheld at any one time, saving you room on your device and allowing distance calculation and mapping features to operate smoothly. It uses geolocation either via cell tower triangulation, GPS or manual location entry (so you can look up the repeaters you will use on vacation or business trips, etc.).
If anyone has lists of Amateur Radio repeaters from their countries we would love to incorporate that into our database.

Ratings and Reviews
Easy access to repeater info
I had downloaded this app because RFinder was endorsed by the ARRL (American Radio Relay League), the national organization for amateur radio operators. The app's default mode seems to display repeaters based on current GPS coordinates. The one snag I had was figuring out how to search for repeaters in other areas without having to input latitude and longitude coordinates (i.e., Washington, DC). There is a menu at the bottom of the display screen for repeater list but searching on location is not an option there. However, pressing "Menu" in the upper left corner of the screen opens tabbed menus in a column and selecting Override Location leads to a screen allowing for searching based on city and state or coordinates. This app is handy for locating nearby repeaters but also for distant repeaters so that data can be programmed ahead of time, anticipating travel to that area. Price is reasonable and consists of a yearly updated subscription. Oh, tech support is fantastic, as the author responded promptly (within an hour or so - I didn't actually time the response) to my question. A must-have app if you need repeater data at your fingertips and left your directory at home.

Easy to use and 5-star support.
I’ve used this App for a couple of years and it meets its utility value. Then I discovered the link to RT Systems which I use to manage my radios memory. Even better I can now do route planning. In South Carolina this is a fantastic feature as the repeater system supports statewide linking on weekends; I can contact someone in Charleston from the upstate while in route.
I recently changed my email address during renewal, which I initially dreaded because it deals with registration and account management. On top dealing with some In-app renewal idiosyncrasies related to PayPal and Apple. I was delightfully surprised with the quick and complete resolution. Email response was not just within 48 hours; the problem was understood, investigated and closed in less than 2 days—and I never had to go beyond my initial email to “support.” I wish the same could be said for other apps.
Excellent app and superb customer support
I recently purchased the app, which worked flawlessly. I couldn't get my login to work on the website. I decided that I would send an email to support and explain my trouble, this was on a Saturday. I fully expected to possibly have a reply the following week. I was very surprised and extremely impressed to have a reply a few hours later. I was given a few suggestions to try. When I got home on Sunday I logged into the website and everything worked perfect. I sent an email to RFinder support thanking Bob for his assistance and excellent customer service. Once again to my surprise, within minutes I had a reply from Bob. I am very impressed at the usefulness and ease of this app. I would most definitely recommend the RFinder app and company to everyone.
