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.

This app is amazing. Beautifully rendered, 3D views (change the viewing angle), lots and lots of mountains listed. It's as accurate as your phone's compass can be when you hold it up rather than flat. I have no idea why anyone would complain about any aspect of this app, it's solid as a rock and does exactly what the description says it does. Definitely 5 stars.

I was having similar problems with my PeakFinder, but it turns out many of them were a result of two "operator error" -problems. 1) Never seemed to show the peaks in the direction I was pointing. I could manually match peaks to what I (or the camera) was seeing, but never did it automatically. This turned out to be interference with my vehicle(s) and a magnetic catch. Moving away from both resolved the problem...now lines up perfectly. 2) Wasn't showing peaks near me. Not sure why not (PeakFinder shouldn't need to be told "find me"), but selecting the tiny GPS button in the app snapped immediately to the right surroundings. Really like the height adjustment tool, and getting great labeled photos of mountains here in the White Mountains.
