Useless while driving While driving I pointed this app at mt shasta. Mt shasta dominated our view for a good 10 minutes and this app never registered mt shasta. Instead it showed some random peaks that no one has heard of and I could not read the peaks that it does show because the names go off the screen and get cut off. Also I changed the units to imperial but it still shows metric. There is a lot of debugging to do!

Good, but needs extended range Shows the peaks in my neighbourhood, even when it sometimes seems to be a little "off". What is missing is an even bigger range: e.g. on some days I can clearly see a mountain peak, that's about 40km away from me - but I can't seem to show it in the app.

Loved this on iOS but on Android, it doesn't even work. Went hiking on a new trail today, one where I knew I'd be able to see dozens of nearby peaks. Downloaded this app, and went on my way. Launched it on the trail, and it said there was an updated database. Well, I had just a weak GPRS data connection so there was no chance of downloading the 4MB update. I tried to ignore it, and the app crashed. Got home, downloaded the update, and it says the database is corrupt now. Sigh, uninstalling.

Need to be more accurate I love the idea of this app. I live in Teton Valley, ID, and there are several distinctive views of the west slope of the Tetons from my house. I have had this app for a while but every time I try it, either it shows an incorrect peak, or does not line up correctly with the real peak. I hope you get the kinks worked out. If this worked well, it would be fantastic.

Could be more accurate, but does provide names. I live in Telluride, this is my guide!!

Peak.ar Useful app for people who like geography and always want to know where they are trekking/walking/cycling.

A Google User

Every other app on my phone that needs GPS works no problem. But this just says it cans find a GPS position. It sucks.

Ken Shoufer

Not accurate. I found Peak AR to be not accurate when finding known peaks. The interface needs work.

A Google User

Fun but useful? Elevations are always in m no matter how I set in settings. Readings are usually a bit off target too.

Ryan Evans

Awesome app! Very helpful app! Such a great concept. I'm excited to see this app continue developing.

Gerd Prümm

Makes my device completely unresponsive --- no update in 2 1/2 years??? --- mountain names jumping --- mountain names displayed at wrong positions --- mountain names displayed on the very top of the screen, getting cut off

A Google User

Great app found it very Imformative on holiday in Austria. Just needs the option to take photo with the information on the screen

A Google User

Worked great till new update. Peaks shake when trying to look and cant look as far back to distant peaks as before. Liked older version better. Evo

Denis De Mesmaeker

Inaccurate In the alps it didn't show the correct peaks at all

A Google User

Works well in sw BC, Canada... Very cool!

A Google User

Needs a lot of work before it's halfway decent When you turn your phone, the mountains change position, and the whole screen starts jerking around. It gets the position of mountains up to 20 degrees off even when you keep the phone steady for a while.

A Google User

Works fine on Nexus one gingerbread & it's free!!!

Andrew Bailey

Great idea and useful execution. Wish that the unit settings worked for the peaks and not just the range function. Just a few tweaks away from awesome.

A Google User

NOT TRUE CHRIS It doesn't work on Your Android. Works great on my DX2. Only problem I have found is can't make the metric to imperial work. Oh, and yes it would be cool to be able to take a photo. Apple iOS sux.

cody tucker

Well done Great app, and it works around the globe! Keep up the good work.

??? I'm looking directly at Mt Rainier and Mt Baker and it wont identify either one! I think you need a tutorial for this app. I found the dial off to the right by accident to fine tune the peak finder.

A Google User

Just not doing the job Orientation is between 45 and 180° off, distance wheel is just crazy with something like 30 steps, useless.

A Google User

Had to manually download the db, note that when saving it the browser gave it a txt file extension that I had to rename back to sqlite.

A Google User

Great idea Not working so well on rooted evo 4g running ics 4.03. Screen is tiled so you can't see anything.

A Google User

Cant get data downloaded Looks like a great app but I cannot get the data to down load, also cannot contact builder to get help.

A Google User

. Great idea, but position of peaks is very approximate and unsteady. Needs to be improved a lot.

A Google User

Would give 5 stars if: - show also cities, lakes, mpasses... - when rotating phone all peaks disappear at some constant position - deshake peak view

A Google User

Tested it on two Galaxy Tabs, didn't work. Different troubles on both devices.

A Google User

Great app, would give 5 stars but it runs in the background constantly and eats power, won't shut down even with task manager.

A Google User

Fixed now great app it is not completely accurate

A Google User

Can't get it to actually go to mountain top. No calibration and most of the time it shuts down before starting. Droidx

A Google User

Great app. I would like to see font sizes and use of the camera / phone's image stabilization.

A Google User

Gps takes forever but cool app DroidX

Z Musa

Needs work The app isn't easy to use. Sluggish. Great idea .. Needs more work.

John Mckinney

Nice concept calibration not working Looks like it may be showing right peaks but pointing in wrong direction. Calibration may not be working with Droid DNA.

A Google User

Buggy Camera display is inverted horizontally and vertically (Nexus 5X). Won't display imperial units. Would like ability to take photos with peak label overlay and also set minimum label distance, but would be happy if just the bugs were fixed.

David Cottrell

Great Idea but.... If this actually worked it would be SO cool. But the markers don't line up with the actual peaks. So it's kinda useless.

ncl

Mostly unusable A lways it requires a internet connection to update the database which is difficult to get in mountain. Does't work fine the peak recognising

Benjamin Absher

This is awesome Identified the local peaks super easily. I am very impressed.
