Useless while driving While driving I pointed this app at mt shasta. Mt shasta dominated our view for a good 10 minutes and this app never registered mt shasta. Instead it showed some random peaks that no one has heard of and I could not read the peaks that it does show because the names go off the screen and get cut off. Also I changed the units to imperial but it still shows metric. There is a lot of debugging to do!
Loved this on iOS but on Android, it doesn't even work. Went hiking on a new trail today, one where I knew I'd be able to see dozens of nearby peaks. Downloaded this app, and went on my way. Launched it on the trail, and it said there was an updated database. Well, I had just a weak GPRS data connection so there was no chance of downloading the 4MB update. I tried to ignore it, and the app crashed. Got home, downloaded the update, and it says the database is corrupt now. Sigh, uninstalling.
Good, but needs extended range Shows the peaks in my neighbourhood, even when it sometimes seems to be a little "off". What is missing is an even bigger range: e.g. on some days I can clearly see a mountain peak, that's about 40km away from me - but I can't seem to show it in the app.
Need to be more accurate I love the idea of this app. I live in Teton Valley, ID, and there are several distinctive views of the west slope of the Tetons from my house. I have had this app for a while but every time I try it, either it shows an incorrect peak, or does not line up correctly with the real peak. I hope you get the kinks worked out. If this worked well, it would be fantastic.
Could be more accurate, but does provide names. I live in Telluride, this is my guide!!
Peak.ar Useful app for people who like geography and always want to know where they are trekking/walking/cycling.
- reduced "flickering" of peaks
- improved text-size (rendering)
- fixed a bug where some peaks would vanish
- a number of smaller bugfixes
