  • Did not work offline

    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.
  • Too Much Money

    Makes zero sense to buy this at $23 per year especially with similar apps.
  • Cool app

    Only thing is when driving it’s slow to identify the ranges .
  • Awesome for Peakbaggers!

    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!
  • Missing standard feature

    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 it worked it was cool

    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
  • Free month is only 7 days

    My free first month ends 07.17. Today is 07.11. The app’s cool but that’s just disingenuous. Can this be corrected?
  • Cost MONEY?

    I got the app then it said it costs 💵
  • Get Peakfinder instead

    Developer trying to squeeze more money out of you with a subscription for important features that you can get with a one time purchase with PeakFinder. It’s a really slimy move to take a one time payment app, turn it free and lock features behind a subscription. Never giving you a cent.
  • Will kill your iCloud backup

    Nice app, but for reasons that escape me, the developers think they need to backup all data (approximately 840MB) to my iCloud account. Since I could presumably just download this data again if my phone was lost or damaged, I can only assume the devs are getting a kickback on the $ I now have to spend on extra iCloud storage. As one developer to another, here's a pro tip: just backup a description of what I have downloaded, not the entire download itself.
