Living in Colorado and doing a lot of hiking, I thought this would be an ideal app, but I was sadly mistaken. Terrible user interface makes it difficult to use. Slow to load and figure where you are let alone what peaks you are looking at.
Love the update. Can't wait to get into the mountains again this summer.
Close... I've used this app in a few places around Washington State. Beats having to take pictures and figure out what you were looking at in Google Earth when you get home. But sometimes peaks that you'd expect to be labelled aren't, and the app does not correct for magnetic declination (~20° around here). I reported this issue a while ago; still hoping it gets fixed sometime.
Fun tool in the backcountry! I've used throughout the west and enjoy not bringing a map of dstant peaks. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is that the orientation is often off from compass direction, but that could be my own device.
Favorite alpine nerd tool! Awesome idea that works great! Alignment is off a bit when compass is controlling view... maybe the result of magnetic declination in the North Cascades (16-18 deg). Not sure if there is a correction option. Love the binoculars function.
Poor peak invenrory Purchased this to suppliment my hiking maps in the sumnit county area of Colorado. Very, very few peaks listed, regardless of height. This was money wasted. I would rate this as cute, but nothing more.

PeakFinder shows the solar and lunar orbit and the sunrise and sunset times.
With this you know when and where the sun rises and sets behind your favorite mountain.
••• Compass correction •••
If the panoramic view is still not aligned correcly after the calibration of the compass you may correct the alignment manually. Tap on the bottom of the screen and move the slider to the left or to the right.
