App developed a lot during last years and is very usefull at the moment. There is still some climbing spots missing but i hope it will extend with time. It would be nice as well to have option to print climbing topo. I would be even ready to pay yearly for the app to help its development instead of paying for guide books which are very expensive and expire with a time.

Great App in general. But activity filter for climbing is not ideal. Sac huts can not be distinguished from climbing routes on map as the points have almost the same color. Only when zooming in, icons appear that help to tell them apart. Would be great to hide huts on map.

Hallo Daniel, besten Dank für diesen guten Hinweis. Die beiden Rottöne sind auf grosser Zoomstufe wirklich nicht voneinander zu unterscheiden. Wir werden diesen Punkt hoffentlich bereits für ein kommendes Release berücksichtigen können.

Awesome! Keep it going! I would love to have multple list like the watch one, like: to do, climb, mountaneering, etc. I would also be amazing to be to download the gpx files and see them on the app or on swiss top when offline. Thank you for this lovely work you are making!

In the latest version we have an improved watchlist management also allowing multiple lists etc. By now you can't download the routes in gpx but you can use them offline with the offline functions within the app. We're still working on further navigation functions.
