The iOS app PeakFinder AR for Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch helps you to recognize mountains and their peaks offline. All you have to do is point the device camera at the mountain panorama and the AI recognizes which mountains or which mountain ranges it is. Augmented Reality (AR) then brings you an overall picture directly onto the display with the real-time image and the graphics and names on it, which will boost your mountaineering knowledge. Details, thoughts and downloads on PeakFinder AR by Fabio Soldati can be found here.
Today on Father's Day or Men's Day 2018, the PeakFinder AR app for iOS on the Apple iPhone and iPad is number 3 of the top apps in the "Travel" section of the app store. If you are today or on the weekend for Mother's and Women's Day If you are planning a hike in the mountains, you can now quickly secure the software for only 5,49 EUR.
It works with iOS 9.0 or newer as well as with the iPod Touch models equipped with it. In addition to German, the program can also be used in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean and Japanese. In addition to the AR view of the mountain panorama and the mountain names around you, the app can also be used to take high-resolution photos.

How often have I stood climbing in the Alps and I was wondering what the name of the big corner on the right back is With the old PeakFinder you were already well served, since the black and white view with the contours was, in principle, helpful when you had prominent peaks.
However, if you stand on some mountains in Austria, there are so many Summit in the field of vision that the great guesswork often started even with PeakFinder. With the PeakFinder AR, things just got better. I'm already looking forward to my summer vacation in Tyrol, where I can make my climbing buddies happy with the secret knowledge from PeakFinder AR;)
Anyone who is often out and about in the mountains and likes to professionally explain to their loved ones at the summit cross which great peaks they are currently facing is guaranteed to be the hero with PeakFinder AR and an iPhone. : D Have you already had experience in this regard or in another form? Feel free to leave your opinion, anecdotes and assessments of the Fabio Soldati app as a comment!
