    Not only does this beautiful app have wonderful uses, it's so lovely to look at that I could just spend ages playing with it. Wonderful! Highly recommended for literally anyone-- whether you are just curious as to what that mountain over there is called or if you're a landscape photographer seeking the perfect vantage of a scene. Just fabulous.
  • Updates like Christmas

    As a climber and mountaineer, I love this app. Most importantly, every update is a monumental improvement in the right direction. Looking forward to this gift that keeps on giving. Download this and give the creators their dues because this app ROCKS (get it?).

    You can easily adjust the mapping by using sun or moon or mountain position for best accuracy, and easily adjust the desired radius you want mountain info on. Of the handful of similar apps I have tried, this one is the best, hands down.
  • Long-time PF user, suddenly in love with PeakFinder

    Today I went hiking here in Colorado. As I often do, I opened PeakFinder to figure out what peaks are which. Ordinarily, this was a frustrating process, because when I hold my iPhone 7 vertically, the compass doesn't work, and it was hard to look back and forth to match the outlines with the view. Today, WOW, augmented reality! I can see the view _and_ the info all together, right on the iPhone! Suddenly, it was easy to align the peaks to the view on the screen, and voilà! In seconds we identified each of the twenty peaks we could see, even the distant ones that were barely visible behind the others. We all were dazzled! Each of the five people on the trip said they'd be buying PeakFinder. If you love mountains, check it out. Even if you're not sure, I hope you get to see it in action some day. If you do, I'm certain you'll be buying it, too.
  • Great update

    This has long been a favorite app for traveling and hiking. Very helpful in conjunction with maps to get your bearings or just answer the question, "what is the name of that mountain?" To be honest, I thought it was a five star app before this upgrade. Adding the camera and the ability to make slight adjustments to more accurately track the terrain is brilliant. You don’t need this app, but you will want it!
  • Fantastic - great in the White Mountains

    Hike a lot in NH - the app is terrific, especially with the recent updated graphics and photo overlay capability.
