Finally I have the app: TouchMountain–a “must have” (at least for me)

As I said in one of my recent posts Comparing Windows Phone 7 and iPhone, there are very few apps I am (and now was) missing on my Windows Phone 7 compared to what I know of the iPhone Apps. Actually the one which I was really missing was something like Peaks on the iPhone (even though some friends told me that it did not really work that reliably) – an app, which helps me to name the mountains around me.

Today I heard of TouchMountain – PeakFinder on steroids. These are some screenshots from the marketplace:

You can see the map around you:


But the real cool thing is the real view through the camera:


Including webcams:


And if a peak is missing, there is an interface to add it.

Last but not least: If an app still has five stars in their rating after 10 people submitting, it has to be really, really, really cool Smile
