Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
If you live around mountains, or visit areas with mountains, this app is well worth the money. I enjoy being able to look at a mountain and know the name and distance from me. I paid for it once (about the cost of a draft beer) several years ago and have never seen an ad since. When I visit a new area I can download the new data and identify mountains without having any wireless service. You won't regret this purchase.

Rarely works, wish I could get a refund. Someone at the bottom of a trail told me about the app and I thought it would be useful. Even if you predownload everything it still asks to update on every single launch and if you have no internet (rarely do when I want to use this app) it won't work 99% of the time. I've literally only gotten it to work twice out of the dozen times I've used it. Not worth the space it takes on my phone and certainly not worth $5. Hopefully one day this app is usable.

To ensure that the required data for the next trip is loaded, you have two options:
- Open the PeakFinder menu 'Viewpoint -> Maps' and select a location for your next tour. Then press the 'bird' icon. This will install the data for that area.
- If you want to install a larger area, you can do so from the PeakFinder 'Coverage' menu.

Getting better with each release. I like the ability to select for peaks over a certain height. Really useful for eliminating clutter. I do have to realign the phone compass almost every day I turn on peakfinder, but no big deal. Might be nice to have a feature to exaggerate vertical relief, since the height differences often look larger in real life than on the screen. Of course that mode would have to be turned off during photo alignment mode. All in all, solid application.
