  • Incredible detail Mar 4, 2019

    By Clint Arthemis Golub
    I’ve used PeakFinder AR for close to 7 years (before there was decent AR) and only last summer decided to check out Peak Visor and wow. In the decade since early mountain and star identifying apps first made their appearance on the iPhone, apps like Peak Visor have taken the concepts and massively expanded upon them. For one, greater CPU power has allowed beautifully rendered graphics, and greater accuracy in the graphic overlay HUD that pops over the mountains. In Peak Finder, you had to open the “camera” function to see the tags over the actual mountains themselves which was a real pain. But even more incredible is the 3D map you can double-tap if you point your iPhone down. It’ll not only let you teleport anywhere in the world, but really let’s you explore topography that’s difficult to physically reach, with dozens upon dozen of mountain tags; even in the most remote parts of the British Columbia or south-eastern Al. You can also preemptively download vast swaths of the planet you expect to go exploring in before you arrive, so when you open up PV, it’ll instantly have a ton of data to give you. Coupling this app with Gaia/AllTrails and Google Earth has been real game changer for me, and even when I’m just driving down the interstate, if I see any mountains that catch my curiosity, I instinctively pull for this app. It’s become that integral to me. Perfect 5 stars, we’ll worth the cheap price.

  • Amazing tool for learning the mountains Aug 14, 2019

    By Robbo Mon
    I have been very impressed with the breadth and abilities of this app. It has become my go-to tool for learning about the topography of mountains in California. Many times before this app, I had wondered what mountains I could see. This app makes incredibly easy to find out. Before going on trips, I enjoy using the teleport feature to see the layout of the area. You can see relatively detailed images that give you a good idea of how your path will look from each position, so it’s useful for back-country treks where good trails aren’t available. The new 3D feature is very useful here as well. There are actually quite a few trails uploaded here too, so it is useful when you want to find the direction to a trail. Both live and picture-based landscape matching work really well. I appreciate the download zone option, since there isn’t always service in the mountains. The landscapes are surprisingly accurate, and all of the features are easy to use.

    I’ve been backpacking in the mountains for about 30 years using Maps then handheld GPS and phone enabled GPS, and I just added this product to my quiver. I really like it a lot. The core functionality is that it lets you superimpose the horizon line and the names of peaks onto your phone screen when you have your camera viewfinder enabled. This works well and I have learned the names of a lot of features that I have been looking at for years without knowing what they are called. You can download these photos with the labels on them. You can also upload a picture and The app will add labels— assuming the photo is geotagged. The final feature that I will mention is the virtual terrain mode, which allows you to “see over” ridges. All this has really added to my understanding of the mountains that I backpack in southern Idaho. Highly recommend.

  • Wonderful, but know that it uses a lot of data. Jan 30, 2020

    By Jrobert.in.Wilton
    Update: The developer has explained that the data is necessarily large but that it can be pre-downloaded at home to save data quota. Since that was my only complaint I've upped my rating to 5-stars. Users on a measured plan should understand that the the app will pull a lot of data in the field if it hasn't been previously downloaded. It really is quite amazing at identifying peaks - point and shoot! - and I feel bad about dissing it. But in 3 or so minutes, over a less than 30 degree segment of the horizon, it just blew through my - admittedly low, 100MB - entire monthly data allowance. This won't be a barrier for most people but those light-users on a measured plan, as I am, should know upfront: expect a hefty download to do what it does.

    What's this for? Looked interesting so I bought. After several days I can't figure out how it works or what it's for. Seems to be constantly downloading stuff, composing panoramas etc. Wasted my money.
  • Pro version required! May 9, 2020

    By CasualPhoneGamer
    Upon installing the application I was notified that I would need the pro version in order to locate peaks in more than one location per day. Seemed fair enough, I likely won’t usually need to use this more than once a day but I figured I’d sign up for a year membership if I enjoyed using the free version. I entered into the app to try it out and learned that I needed to download data for my vicinity, 130mb.. Seems like they must be doing something pretty inefficient to require a file that large for everywhere you go (and certainly makes it impractical if you have low cell service, like for example in the mountains lol) but I allowed it just to try it. While I am waiting for the information in my vicinity to download I am prompted that I have used up my one location for the day and must pay to view more. So essentially, I spent my free location for the day downloading unnecessary data (even though I was still in the same location lol). Pretty sweet! Looking forward to checking out other options or writing my own app for this.

    Does not download properly, does not overlay properly, drains my battery by running in the background. Had to uninstall for the second time. Have sent two emails to devs. Would like my money back please.
  • Black Mtns WNC Dec 2, 2018

    By Are you Sirius
    “Just open the app and point the camera.” Sounds easy. I’m in the highest mountain range in the Eastern USA, the Black Mtns in Western North Carolina. I’m 4.01 miles from Mount Mitchell (measured with my Garmin GPS), the HIGHEST PEAK in the Eastern United States, and after nearly a dozen tries, this app has identified NOTHING, although it did indeed download the data it needs for this area. I can clearly see Cattail Peak, one of the southern sixers, from my property. It’s barely a mile away. When I aim the camera at Cattail Peak, the app provides no data whatsoever, even after adjusting and readjusting numerous times, as the user is prompted onscreen to do. After trying over and over, all day long, all I’ve gotten is crude line drawings of mountains. GPS data, yes, but no peak data whatsoever. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. The instructions, which I’ve read, reread and reread, over and over, provide no help whatsoever. Only brief and cursory explanations. Sorry I wasted my money.

    Devs responded and fixed my problem of app crashing. Still some tweaks are needed like compas twirking a bit to left and right but is much more usable now.

    Not enough relief. No distinguishing features. It might be fine with only a few major peaks, but in my area, southern Oregon, from the top of a big peak, it names 12 or peaks, each a small lump indistinguishable from the mass of hills. Far away peaks on the horizon do not show up at all.

    This App was okay. Location was a little more accurate than Peak Finder, but in Western NC mountains did not have as many knobs/mountain names.
  • Missing standard feature Aug 2, 2019

    By Evan_13
    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).

  • Would be PERFECT but... Jun 15, 2018

    By dburton80
    Love everything about this app except the way it updates. For some reason nearly every time I try to use it, it needs to update the data by downloading the vicinity. Of course this is always exactly when I’m on the trail without data or wireless available. This app beats the competition in about every other way by leaps and bounds so I hope they fix that!
