    I live in the Sierra foothills. And now I can accurately identify all the mountains and peaks around me. I love this app.

    Couldn’t correctly identify the largest peak out my front door. Wrote to report the error but that was 2 months ago. Total fail.
  • Just downloaded and love it so far

    My only wish is that it can tell me not only mountain peaks but what the name of the mountain range it is in.
  • Doesn’t work

    Yesterday...a couple of days before Christmas...I was standing directly in front of the Colorado 14er Quandry Peak just to see if this worked. I did this because every time I’d used it in the past, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, I’ve thought it wrong. So I tried it at a mountain I’d trekked up, photographed and generally know well. It was not even close. Quandry wasn’t even on the screen. So I tried it again today, pointing at the front range south of Denver. Pointing due west at Mount Evans, I saw Horsetooth mountain, which is about 90 miles due north, showing up about SSW from the direction I was aiming my phone. I should get my money back. And, in fact, I want my money back.
  • Incredibly Fun App

    By MountMango
    PeakFinder is great fun and never fails to impress friends and strangers! The developer adds sensible new features that keep it current and relevant, but not bloated. For example the ability to take annotated photos or to chose a viewpoint anywhere in the world from a map. Don’t hesitate on this one, highly recommended.
  • Mountains height is wrong

    By SergeiSMTH
    I like the app, but I found that some mountains height is wrong. For example Middle Palisade is shown as 13530ft, but it is 14019ft.
  • Way fun while traveling

    Orienting ourselves and guests is fun.
  • Rarely works

    I hike frequently in the eastern US in Va, NC, and WV. Purchased hoping this would be informative. I found it to work, partially, only once out of numerous attempts. Some attempts were in well known places with clear mountain vistas. Nothing! Regret the purchase!
  • GPS is always off

    This app is neat but I’ve noticed that while my phone’s GPS puts me in the right place, this app is always off by 6 or so miles. Sad I paid for something that’s this wrong all the time.
  • Disappointing

    Hard to actually determine thenowaks. When you increase the altitude you get everything across. I want the close ones in the horizon not everything beyond.
