Cool app, cool service :)
Full screen advertising on the latest version which you have to close before you can use the app. Either switch to less intrusive ads or offer a paid version without ads. App removed for good....
It does the job It's good for getting an idea about what other climbers are talking about when they use a different system. It doesn't however show the curve on which grades actually relate to each other. The wheel system of the iOS app is much clearer in thus regard.
Good but some conversions make little or no sense, in particular the conversion of the brit adj. scale into any technical scale - they provide different, loosely related information: one informs on safety, all others on difficulty.
Needs upgrading to be excellent Very useful for quick, rough comparisons. I use it when instructing, to help explain different systems used in indoor walls. Like any other tool it's down to the user to interpret it intelligently. However, it needs lists of countries using a particular common grading system. For example, what grades are used in Canada? Other instructors I have shown it to thought it was a great concept.
Excellent This is a great app! I are can never remember how grades relate to each other. Now I don't have to. I use it to convert between grades I use -- YDS and Hueco -- to understand what I can climb. It also is good when reading magazines or watching movies.
- Scale has been fixed.
- New scales has been added: Ewbank (AUS, NZL), Ewbank SA.
