Note: Many customers with high altitude illnesses or sensitivities, such as chronic lung disease, asthma, COPD, & emphysema find this app useful for avoiding high altitudes. It is also used by hikers and climbers who want to avoid high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) and high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE). However, the altitude shown is potentially subject to large inaccuracies and this app should NOT be used as a primary device for determining altitude for medical reasons.

Been using it since it came out
Except once when it disappeared on me. Not a problem--the company looked me up and sent instructions on how to reload it. I like it because it's simple, gives me exactly what I need, and nothing else. I do not like apps that clutter up the phone with extraneous information.
Didn't expect it's accuracy
I'm not saying it'll break it down to nanometers, but for what it is it's pretty dang good! My wife and I used it as a tool when we were home shopping, that may not sound like much but we live in southern Louisiana. Flooding will happen, but not to my home.
We go the the mountains whenever we can. I co sided myself a numbers nerd and I'm always curious what the altitude is everywhere we go. If only we had something easy to use, I thought. This is it - I think we live in the future! The results are immediate. I'm typing this as I'm sitting at 7604' outside Taos, NM.
