Never get lost again! Well, not quite, but at least you'll know the names of the mountains towering about you.

Look Around allows you to get the name of mountains around you: 70, 000 of them in the US.

Hold the iPhone face-up, and you will see a map showing pin marks of the mountains around you. You can touch the pin marks to get their name and distance away. Your current location should be centered with a blue dot and a small compass is shown - red facing North. You can zoom in or out to show more or less mountains.

As you swing the iPhone so that the camera faces the mountains, you should start seeing their name appear at their summit on the camera image.

Look Around works best outdoors with a clear view of the sky (and the mountains).

There's no need for an internet connection; all mountain names are included in the app. The background map will not appear however, if you don't have an internet connection.

Look Around utilises the compass so it will only work on the iPhone 3GS.

Fantastic App!

Living in Colorado makes this app very functional for me. It works well and I simply love it. Thank you developers!

5/5 stars


When I first downloaded this app the font was small and I dropped a quick email to the creators. I was impressed not only to get a response but shortly after an update was released that increased the font size.

This app is one of my favorites and is also now my Daughter's favorite. We use it hiking and as we drive. Learning the names of the mountains around our area is like a history lesson and geography lesson rolled into one.
I will be using it as I travel for work (I am an artist and will be able to put a name to what I paint) and am eager to use it on vacation later this month.

The app is well designed and easy to use. It has never frozen or locked up.

5 Stars well earned!
