Slibbyibbydingdong's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 9/11/18 8:49 AM
This app is amazing in many ways. It is easy to use and very intuitive. It is easy to export pictures with just the peaks you want labeled. It is really fun use while hiking and I have used extensively on numerous hikes in the NE Appalachian mountains with no difficulty. I was excited to use the app on an upcoming trip to Thailand and Laos. I downloaded the area before the left, but every time I use the app in this region it tells me there is a better region to use, despite being in the middle of the region I downloaded. So I tried to download this data, using a good WiFi connection and every time at 30mb I get an error message and it does finish. I have 1.5gb available on my older model iPhone. A more specific error message and the ability to resume interrupted downloads would be excellent features. Also the region I downloaded has very few of the prominent mountains and hills labeled despite my father in law knowing the names of them. This would be a five star for use in the states, but was a little disappointed that it did not work as well in Thailand and Laos. Every hiker should check this app out though. It is super fun and all my hiking buddies have purchased the app after using mine on hikes.

JMB785's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 8/28/19 1:48 PM
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.

Most of the mountains I can find. Except James Peak. So it’s not 100% yet.
Larrygps's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 8/28/19 1:48 PM
After selecting a view location, not my current location, at every step my selected location is discarded for my current location. It needs a ‘lock’ option, so for planning and using the app to its fullest. But after using the map to select s view location it should remain the view location. Otherwise it’s super cool. Lots of potential.

Why can’t you just download fully detailed map in the beginning rather than keeps asking us when there is not signal. How do you know there is more detailed map without signal? Why can’t you give us a choice to download fully detailed map? I don’t really understand the logic of developers.

I absolutely love this app and whenever I show another hiker the magic of this app they also want to purchase this app. I have used this app in the northeast and west coast and each time I get great results. I enjoy the photo feature as well. Finally, I know each of the mountains I am looking at in the distance. Kudos to the app developers.

Colo Hiker's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 6/17/18 12:00 AM
Disappointed that the app only names prominent peaks. I live in Colorado and we have thousands of peaks, very few are named in the app. Frustrating to be looking at a beautiful peak with no idea what the name is - that’s why I purchased the app. Look for something else.

Richy190190174's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 5/30/18 8:29 PM
If you are more advanced, this is a poor app. It has smaller mountains (or hills) near cities but three tallest peaks in national forests it does not have? How could the app not have the second tallest peak in the Oregon coastal range?

Shoffman951's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 4/13/18 9:26 PM
My friend bought a peak finder app for her Droid based smart phone and I was so impressed with it that I had to get one for my iPhone. Sadly the one she has is not made for the iOS software. So I got this one. Two major flaws I’ve noticed: -It’s often inaccurate and you have to line it up manually. This requires you to match up their line drawing with the mountain range you are trying to place. This can be a little ambiguous and has left me feeling less than confident in knowing for certain which peak is which. -Second major flaw, you can’t just snap a photo of the peaks and their names, you have to do a screen shot. That requires pushing the power button and home button simultaneously. Doing that requires two hands and readjusting one’s position. I can’t simply pull my phone out quickly, point and shoot. I have to stop, make sure I have two hands available and then do a screen shot, which is a bit trickier for me to pull off while trying to hold the phone up and hold it steady. My excitement for this app disappeared quickly after purchase. I’d actually like to return it if that was a possibility.
Buyer Beware Again's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 4/1/18 4:12 PM
What the developer does not tell you when purchasing this app is after making the initial $4.99 purchase, you need to buy each state or lacation as a seperate purchase. Example, if you live in the State of Washington, you'll need to purchase the App for $4.99 and and extra $0.99 for Washington State, etc.

This is a beautiful simple app. I can feel more safe getting lost because i can orient myself to the landmarks i am familiar with. This app is allowing me to get on a first name basis with all the mountain characters in my geographical neighborhood! I love it!
The Fire Horse's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 3/19/18 10:54 PM
So much attention to detail, from the fluid movement of the view, to the artistic sketch style of the display, and now with AR! It is humbling to think of all the calculations and sensing that’s going on behind this beautiful interface. They say technology advances by increasing the number of things we can do without thinking about it. PeakFinder has definitely advanced technology. It’s an app worth seeing, even if you’ve never wondered “What’s the name of that lump?”
Klon5688's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 3/17/18 7:21 PM
Very inaccurate. You have to already know the peaks to know what you’re looking at. It sometimes identifies peaks that are 180 degrees the other way. I emailed the designer, but he doesn’t seem to know how to fix it.

I live in Salt Lake City Utah and many prominent peaks in the area are missing on your app. 9000’ Mount Olympus is a very popular prominent peak and yet it’s not named in this app. This is just one example of HUGE peaks that are missing! It’s only a mile from my home.

Even if you don’t go out hiking all the time, this app is a ton of fun. “What’s that thing over there? It looks like we could get on top!” Well, mom, that’s a little bump called Nipple Peak. The app was a huge hit on our brief tour around the southwest.

I have been using PeakFinder for a while and it has really helped me find my way through the mountains and tell me the names. When PeakFinder AR came out, the whole process of naming and finding routes got much, much easier.

PeakFinder is such a cool app. The recent updates have greatly improved it from the older buggy versions. I would still like to have the ability to download multiple regions at the same time or have an easier format for downloading other regions that you plan to visit.

For mountaineers and map-junkies alike, this app is a must have. The new update allows you to better visualize and locate the peaks in realtime. The new flyover feature is much more realistic, as well. I don't typically use tech during climbs, but this is sure to make the summit a lot more fun by enabling you to name every peak in view with 100% accuracy. If anything, it'll impress the flatlanders =)

Tdehr's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 12/16/18 12:58 PM
Makes it very easy to identify all the peaks, even smaller foothills. All the features you want are there, somewhere-- e.g., you can falsify a higher elevation to see more of the area if desired. The only thing missing is an "exaggerate topo" parameter, as in google earth; some of the peak shapes don't match what your eyes see. It would also be helpful to "layer" mountains, to better differentiate which peaks are behind others (grayscale based on distance would probably work). Overall, solidly built and feature-rich.

Soshield's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 12/16/18 12:58 PM
Wonderful app. Tested it out twice this week in Cherokee, Nantahala, and Pisgah National Forests. The first time I did the quick hike up to the Devil's Courthouse off of the Blue Ridge Parkway I was fascinated by the little bronze peak finding tool the NPS had installed at the top. This is that same tool, but in my pocket, at the top of any ridge, peak or overlook I decide to stop at.
BradKer's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 12/16/18 12:58 PM

An exceptional app that is excellent for orientation. The shortfall is that we exist in smaller spaces than 30 miles away exist a mountain named Whatever. My immediate environment is what interest my. What the eye see is what lacks. Living in Arizona, 100+ mile line of sight is the norm. It has its' place but I will await something that has a perimeter ring that l define what I want to know about. I do really like the feature that allows to adjust view dependent on elevations. Still a favorite but rather than loading every peak from Ca, Nev, Az and Utah, maybe just my area.

Why take a great app and ruin with an unusable update? It no longer find my location accurately. Also the new graphics are harder to see. Edit: I figured it out. The default view put me below ground level. I couldn't see any mountains despite looking at them in front of me with my own eyes. If you have the same problem, adjust the altitude slider on the left. I take back what I said about the graphics as now I can see the mountains.
GeneralCorrbalis's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 12/16/18 12:58 PM
This is the worst app that I ever purchased. It does not work. I live in the mountains in Colorado, and the maps are extremely inaccurate, and it does not even name every mountain nearby. Also, whenever I hike, and I click the "reload" button, the application pulls up my original map from my house, which is miles and/or hours and/or in a completely different national forest from when I originally downloaded the application. Don't waste your money!
Cosmo457's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 12/16/18 12:58 PM

JennyBackpacker's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 12/16/18 12:58 PM
This thing can definitely help identify mountains IF you ready know at least one of the peaks in the range to use as a reference. If I point this at the peak I know best, it's actually way off to the right and so the function of pointing it at a peak is useless. Would love to see an update to fix this or a refund.

I thought this would be a gimmicky app, but boy was I wrong! I go climbing and hiking all over Colorado, and find this app a go-to when I'm out adventuring, just behind my mapping app. I also use it for working ham radio for summits on the air, it makes it very easy to point a directional antenna at another radio operator on a summit!
Observanti's Review of Peakfinder ArReviewed on 11/17/18 12:36 PM
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.

This has long been a favorite app for traveling and hiking. Very helpful in conjunction with maps to get your bearings or just answer the question, "what is the name of that mountain?"

You don’t need this app, but you will want it!

Have been using for a while on iphone6 .. other than a little trouble getting the image registered with the visible mountains (often in remote locations with negligible cell service), it has worked very well. It is really fun to be able to put a name on mountains both familiar and new!

I used this app on my Pacific Crest Trail thru hike and I continue to use it every time I go run or put my backpack on. It’s so awesome to know what mountains are around me!

I don’t use PeakFinder a lot, not many mountains in Wisconsin, but it is by far my favorite app. I am forever demo’ing it to friends showing them the ar function by finding our famous Blue Mounds which rise about 950 feet above sea level. Yep, PeakFinder finds it! Can’t wait until I go to Alaska this spring. If I were forced to bring only one app, this would be it!! Awesome app!!

Really good app. The AR is a nice feature. Helps you to seem like your an outdoor expert when you go on hikes with friends. I recommend this app.

Really shows off the synergy between GPS, a camera, accelerometers, gyroscopes and an amazing database. I use it whenever I’m on vacation and take pictures in the mountains: just take a screenshot of the app looking at the same area you’re taking pictures of and you have a perfect record later on of what you were looking at. I add it to all my vacation albums. And everybody you show it to is just amazed at how well it works. A couple of minutes after I show them, they’re downloading it.
