Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app again. It seems to be working for the most part! I’ll see what happens when I travel next week. I saw a few posts about it getting “stuck” in a location. I think maybe that’s what mine is/was doing?
I don’t know what it is about this app but it’s never worked for me. I’m often in southern CO, northern AZ and southern NV and it’s laughably wrong. I’m currently in NV and it’s telling me peaks in Vegas are actually peaks from central CA! It’s like this all the time. It’ll tell the mountains in front of me are actually 10 mile behind me, etc. Yes, it’s updated. I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro, do not have a magnetic case, and all of my other apps that use GPS/compass work perfectly fine.
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry you made these bad experiences. What happens when your press the GPS button? Otherwise please try to reinstall the app (you don't have to pay again for doing this). This should solve this issues.
