Daily Use Doesn’t Actually Work

1
So if you don’t pay you only get one use a day. That’s fine but it’s really zero uses a day with their internal adds. I launch the app and it loads the location data (forever), once loaded I see the one use for five seconds before I get a popup add to buy the paid version. If I dismiss the add my one use is gone and it says I’ve already used my “daily use”. So I get five seconds to look at the app. I’m not sure why I can’t actually see what the app is like before I decide to purchase it. I thought maybe I’d buy it eventually for a trip but I don’t think it's worth it if I can’t see what I’m paying for. So many people on YouTube recommend this app but I really want to try it for myself before I make any decisions. Maybe give me ten or fifteen minutes to explore the app, even just standing in the same place before you time me out and ask for $$$. Especially since it takes so long to load the peaks that I never even get to look at anything at all before the app is useless. It would also be nice to look at the teleport option once before I make a purchase to see if it’s worth it. My intention with this app would be to plan hiking trips and use it for way finding. I can’t actually tell if this would help me if I can’t see anything without paying. Also and I don’t actually know if this is a feature or not, it would be super helpful to download location information prior to a trip so that if I get somewhere remote with no service I could still use the app. I know it’s a pretty advanced feature but I pay $70 a year for the topo maps app for this exact reason, no one likes being lost in the wilderness and an app like this has way more potential than just learning names of mountains.

Too difficult to read

I have the free version. The mountains came up but the print was so small I couldn’t read it.

This app was giving me the names of peaks that were 400 miles from where I was in Colorado. It’s not easy to read either. I just had a rough time with it.

Great

I’ve been backpacking in the mountains for about 30 years using Maps then handheld GPS and phone enabled GPS, and I just added this product to my quiver. I really like it a lot. The core functionality is that it lets you superimpose the horizon line and the names of peaks onto your phone screen when you have your camera viewfinder enabled. This works well and I have learned the names of a lot of features that I have been looking at for years without knowing what they are called. You can download these photos with the labels on them. You can also upload a picture and The app will add labels— assuming the photo is geotagged. The final feature that I will mention is the virtual terrain mode, which allows you to “see over” ridges. All this has really added to my understanding of the mountains that I backpack in southern Idaho. Highly recommend.

Would like to use manually

Many would like to use the app manually with location services turned off, giving the ability to research and explore. This app is completely inoperable unless it is turned on.

Fantastic, Useful and best assistant 😍

Doesn’t work in my area

2
I love the detail and graphics but could not get the app to work. It had some of the right peak names but put them in the wrong places. For example the roofline of a nearby building was identified as Mt Guyot. Other major peaks like Quandary were nowhere to be found even when I had the camera pointed at it.

Thoughts

I downloaded this app and find it very nice, but considering it is a paid app (4.99) it is overly restricted. I used the app in the morning on the Grand Tetons, I moved locations with a different view of the Tetons and the app indicates I can only use it from one place a day, and I have to upgrade to the pro version for 30 dollars annually, which is unacceptable. Thanks for reading.

Seems like junk to me

1
In the middle of the colorado rockies, it misses most peaks. Leader lines between names and peaks are grossly misaligned. Names are too small for anyone who needs reading glasses to read. Try again, folks. Even near Vail, between Sawatch and Gore ranges, this app was pretty useless.
