View height of mountains on your iPhone with Peak.ar

Bar in Sölden

While hiking through the local mountains here in Santa Barbara, I was thinking about how cool it would be to have an iPhone App that could tell you the elevation of all the mountain peaks.

I pulled out my iPhone and searched for “peak” in the App Store and voila, I found the free app Peak.ar from Salzburg Research.

Below a screenshot of Peak.ar in action, showing the elevation of some of the local mountains here in Santa Barbara, CA:

Peak.ar ScreenshotPeak.ar works pretty well and does exactly what you downloaded it for: Displaying heights of mountain peaks. The peak symbols on the display sometimes don’t exactly overlay with the image of the camera, but that’s pretty much the only complaint I have.

Go download Peak.ar and check out your local peaks!
