Pros and cons of PeakFinder AR app for iPhone and iPad
PeakFinder AR app good for
Easy to use, fantastic way to discover your surroundings. And an additional occasion to take time and discover your landscapes
+ quick, precise, flexible
- difficult to understand in the beginning, should name more peaks
I was thrown off when the app first showed mountains in Europe, but after an initial 50MB download of data and a minute to figure out he controls I was seeing all the peaks around me in the Canadian Rockies. The interface is smooth and not jittery, and the search has been lightning fast and accurate. This is my new favourite app!
As a lover of mountains I have looked for a way to identify peaks around the world. And in Peakfinder I found the perfect solution. I tested it in areas I know really well and am astonished about the accuracy of the information I get. I looked at mountains in Switzerland as well as Western Canada and the Northwestern US. "Amazing" is the word that comes to mind..
Makes it very easy to identify all the peaks, even smaller foothills. All the features you want are there, somewhere-- e.g., you can falsify a higher elevation to see more of the area if desired. The only thing missing is an "exaggerate topo" parameter, as in google earth; some of the peak shapes dont match what your eyes see. It would also be helpful to "layer" mountains, to better differentiate which peaks are behind others (grayscale based on distance would probably work). Overall, solidly built and feature-rich.
I got the app when traveling to Alaska and it is absolutely amazing. A must have for travelers.
Some bad moments
View finder is off track. I am fairly familiar with peaks in my area but thought this app would help with some I was not.
App is frustrating to try to get to work and if unfamiliar with your geography it is useless.
Again, disappointed, bad to find correct and all the mountains.
Its the second time I am trying to get Support. Each time I go hiking app requires downloading new maps. I dont have to mention that without internet it is in most cases impossible. Big disappointment.
Simply did not work in Colorado with any accuracy. Even after it figured out I wasnt in the Alps.
I will not even give it a star. It is useless and a waste of money. I was looking for an app that I could use when I hike to identify peaks in the distance. it was difficult if not impossible to read outside.
Whyyyyyy does it dump the data after a while? Useless in the mountains with no service.
and other. So, download free PeakFinder AR .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
