iCE Peak - New iPhone/iPad app from Peakbagger.com

Postby Jelf » Wed Nov 21, 2012 4:18 pm

For those that might not know, http://www.peakbagger.com/ has an extensive database of information, photos, trip reports, etc for all kinds of high points around the world. These range from modest hills to exotic peaks that few have climbed. If you register on the Peakbagger site (free) then you can keep a list of the summits you have visited.

This database can now be accessed on iPhones and iPads with the free iCE Peak app. You can switch back and forth between the high point details and a map displayed by Gmap4. The Peakbagger home page has some info on this app and a link to the iTunes store where you can download the app. Note - The iCE Peak app only works if your iPhone/iPad is online.

There are two user manuals, one for iPad and one for iPhone:

The Apple code was written by Tom Inzinga of http://icefield.com/ and he posts in this blog:

I am the developer of the browser app Gmap4 which is an enhanced Google map viewer. Gmap4 runs in a browser embedded inside the iCE Peak native app. When you ask to see a map, the Google terrain view is displayed. To see the high resolution topo map for a peak in the USA, touch “Terrain” and change the view to “t4 Topo High”. For Canada peaks, select “t5 Canada” to see vector topos.

For more info on Gmap4 please see:
