Description

All your RockHounding needs in one App separated in 4 easy to use sections. Features a large database of over 160 sites and over 60 rocks and gems with full screen pictures. Add your own sites to personalize the App or include your own finds. No Ads or In-App Purchases!

SITES - With over 160 sites, you can choose a site with the Map that also shows your location, or with the List which is separated by State. Each site has a description of the area and what you may find there. You can even add your own sites by plotting the GPS coordinates on the map. RockHound was not intended to be a complete guide to every site, they are mostly in the US. The power is in being able to add your own sites anywhere in the world.

ROCKS - Over 60 different rocks, minerals and gems with descriptions and pictures of each. This is not meant to be a complete list of all rocks and gems, but more of a starting point for you to add the ones that you find and personalized descriptions and photos of them.

TIPS - General tips about RockHounding, Tools needed, Rock Tumblers. There are also program tips to get the most out of RockHound!

FAVORITES - You have the option to select sites as Favorite Sites. The Favorite Sites can have pictures attached to them that you import from your Photo Library or take with the Camera. That way you can keep track of what you find at each site. The power of Rockhound is in this section where you have complete control of the descriptions and pictures of any Site that you mark as a Favorite.

What’s New

Version 5.0

Mega Update! Easier to use interface for adding your own sites for Rockhounding and for adding pictures of rocks you have found. While there are several sites to choose from, the real power comes from adding your own and documenting what you find.

Ratings and Reviews

Worst app ever

I should have read more reviews...this app is definitely not worth the $1.99 I shelled out for it.
There are only 2 pictures per mineral/specimen and it is missing some pretty common ones, where is garnet?
Not only that, but it looks like the app has been out for quite a few years (more than 5) and there is such scant to no information about sites in the Midwest and other various parts of the country that the location feature (which is what supposedly makes the app worth $1.99) is virtually useless.
So, sitting at the park today with my son, excited to identify his gems and minerals he panned for at a cave site in Missouri, was a bust. There weren't enough pictures to compare our actual stones to for a positive identification and there were no sites in Missouri listed to lend any clue or helping hand. I already deleted this waste of space and want my money back!!

Missing critical info and ability

Since this app is been around for so long, I thought there would be a lot more sites. It also does not take advantage of GPS to be able to add in your current location as a potential site. Could be a fantastic app, if they took the time to actually add in an offsite to make the purchase worth it. You can't search by what you want to find, so there is no way to really make use of the sites that are there.

Very Good app

I initially purchased Rocks & Gems for for my son's iPod Touch, and he liked it so much that I also got RockHound. I - naturally - failed to read the requirements section, which of course notes that it is only for iPone. No worries though, I will just keep this one for me on my iPone. Overall, this is a very good app for anyone interested in rock, gem or mineral collection - so please ignore my earlier review.
