    I’m really enjoying this app. A friend recommended it to me and I’ve spread the word and recommended it to many of my friends. No matter where we are I can find out the names of the mountains around us. We are going to Idaho this summer and I can’t wait to use PeakFinder out there. Really a good app.
  • a joy to use

    I rarely write app reviews because so many apps of a geographical nature are very close to being awesome, but tend to be overpriced, lacking in some basic and obvious feature, or have some major glitch. I’m frequently disappointed, but don’t want to discourage developers. In designing a home, this app has succeeded where a dozen other highly technical apps have failed, to give me quick information about features on the landscape, their general appearance and orientation. The camera is intuitive and the function to adjust the position of the features to match the camera view very easy to use. Not only is this useful in a practical sense, it is fun, and I find myself opening it up all the time to better understand my landscape. Please don’t change the essence of this app! It is great as it is.

    I live in Nevada where I am surrounded by mountains. This app makes it easy to know what peaks I’m looking at. I love it!

    This is way cool, all my trailrunner friends are impressed, and the app is so flexible where you can make adjustments to the scene to match up the correct peaks. Big thumbs up!

    Failed on many landmark features around Sedona, Arizona. Thought this would be right in the app’s sweet spot, but no.
  • Don't hike without it
