Useful and incredible apps for hikers . keep it up !
I have been very impressed with the breadth and abilities of this app. It has become my go-to tool for learning about the topography of mountains in California. Many times before this app, I had wondered what mountains I could see. This app makes incredibly easy to find out. Before going on trips, I enjoy using the teleport feature to see the layout of the area. You can see relatively detailed images that give you a good idea of how your path will look from each position, so it’s useful for back-country treks where good trails aren’t available. The new 3D feature is very useful here as well. There are actually quite a few trails uploaded here too, so it is useful when you want to find the direction to a trail. Both live and picture-based landscape matching work really well. I appreciate the download zone option, since there isn’t always service in the mountains. The landscapes are surprisingly accurate, and all of the features are easy to use.
While hiking in Colorado, I tried to use the app to name some peaks I already knew. Wanted to see how well it worked. Well to my surprise, I got an error message stating I didn’t have internet service, duh, and I would have to upgrade to the Pro version to work offline. So pretty worthless app in my opinion. Fix it and I’ll try it again.
Makes zero sense to buy this at $23 per year especially with similar apps.
Only thing is when driving it’s slow to identify the ranges .
I’ve climbed nearly 40 mountains, just climbed my first with this app on my phone. It added so much to the experience. I can look around and get a bearing on exactly where I am and what I’m looking at, as well as what is over the next hill that I haven’t been to yet. Just Great!
Great app, but missing landscape support. Only portrait mode is supported in the interface. While the app make “look” like it supports landscape mode, the interface demonstrates that the app still thinks of itself as only in portrait mode. This is seen with the startup screen and the subscription sign up screen... along with other visual components. Functionality is impaired on the iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd gen).
When in RMNP there was not good enough cell service to download the map. That was disappointing. When I had strong service it did work but I had really wanted to use it in the park...I cancelled my subscription
My free first month ends 07.17. Today is 07.11. The app’s cool but that’s just disingenuous. Can this be corrected?
I got the app then it said it costs 💵
