My Altitude uses GPS signals to determine your current location, altitude (height from sea level) barometric pressure and water boiling point.
This application does not need an internet connection and works best in outdoors.
By default, it uses device sensor to determine the altitude, but you also have the option to use NOAA data files to get the altitude of your location. On newer devices, using device sensor is more accurate.
It also allows you to get a picture of where you are and save it in photo album. Picture will be sealed with coordinates of current location along with altitude and local date/time.
It would be nice to display this on a Pebble watch. Maybe even replace the Elevation Tracker app because it's pretty horrible. Thanks, Mike
Very helpful in tracking your progress during a long climb, and the ads are inobtrusive. Never bothered looking for another altimeter after I downloaded this one, because it gets the job done.
Just the basic metrics you need.
You have the option for downloading data, which prompts a warning that it is probably not as accurate as the sensor data. When I check the sensor, it says I am at 8200 ft +- 8m (aka 24 ft). No, make that 8264. No, it is 8312. No, it is 8254. No, it is … jumping all over the place, way more than the stated variability range. When I check the downloaded data, it says 8257.87 ft +- 3m (aka 9 ft). While I cannot swear to my altitude to that many digits, I do know that I am at roughly 8250 ft, so the downloaded is actually the more accurate for me. FWIW, I am in Cuenca, Ecuador at the moment...
Only thing I would change is the +- x meters. I'd like it to be in feet just like the altitude. Instead, the altitude is in feet and the error rate is in meters. Otherwise, the altitude is constantly bouncing back and forth even though the device is sitting unmoved. It shouldn't he bouncing back and forth so much. I've seem the data version to be much more efficient because it doesn't fluctuate.
Altimeter not very accurate. I'm a surveyor and have very accurate instruments. I needed an app to have something more portable but when I check it against my expensive equipment it was more than 70 feet off.
Awesome app. Must have for the outdoors people.
This is a great and accurate app. I love it!! .. Thumbs up
The app gives you your lat/long and altitude which seems to be reasonably accurate. I have several altimeters but they require constant recalibration. This app seem just as accurate but requires no recalibration. Sweet!
Easy to use and shows what it is. No problems at all.
Was accurate within a few 100ft
Brilliant!!! So Accurate!!
Great little app.
The app is simple and accurate. Works every time. Well done!
Does what it claims, easily and accurately.
Usually reads +or- 10m, sometimes more accurate, but when you're 7,000+ feet up +or- 10m isn't really that much of a difference. Cool boiling point and barometric pressure feature. I don't the reviews from people who live at sea level; you know your altitude what do you want the app to do? Oh gosh I hope the next version can make me a waffle
Great app, one suggestion. Add an altitude alert that you can set yourself. Thanks great job!
It's dies everything what is required of altitude app well and does more. Well done.
Wonderful app. Very accurate and fast. Even with low coverage!
Simple, accurate and dependable. Great!
Not accurate at all. I know in south Louisiana we r not 90 feet above sea level.
I love this app. I use it to chart my pain vs barometric pressure.
App does exactly what it says it will do. It is intuitive and easy to use as all the best applications are. Simple easy interface with just the basic information. Good tool for accompanying other navigation and GPS tracking apps.
I have used this app a number of times and its great.
This is a great App. Thanks so much to the developers.
My altitude fluctuates all over even at sea level.
This app is excellent. It's fast and the design is elegant. One minor nit - on the iPhone 4 you have to scroll to see the boiling point display.
For general informative purposes, it is perfect. I especially like the boiling point correction.
It is a great apps
This app is not accurate. Standing at the 13 ft above sea level mark, it thinks we are 72 ft above sea level. As I travel around to other areas where we know the height above sea level, it is just as bad! Don't waste your time.
Looks good but its too inaccurate to be of any real use. Every reading is +/- 8 or 12 meters
An app that does its job.
I was up in the mountains in Montana and needed an app that would give me correct elevation. Once the datafiles are downloaded the application really shines.
It tells you the altitude. Thanks! Also a few other nice features. But really, isn't that what you wanted? The altitude? Yes. Okay this app does that. Thank you.
Really a great tool for tracking your altitude for the amateur mountain climber. With its simple setting you do not waste precious time having to navigate through the app.
What a handy dandy app to have right on my iPhone. I knew there had to be an app for that! It is great. I've been up high in the Colorado Rockies and was very interested in knowing the altitude. I love that it even gives you the boiling point for water. Very useful app. Many thanks!
This app accurately tells you your altitude and coordinates. It is very useful for hiking and camping. I highly recommend this app!
What else can one say? Yes, it works and it does it well. Barometric pressure and water boiling points are also displayed as altitude changes. Nice.
Works very well for me.
Showed me that we were at 30,xxx feet whilst in an airplane... awesome! Also, works with iOS 7 on my iPhone 4S.
This a great app to let you know your altitude wherever you may be.
There is a hundred apps for GPS altitude, nearly half of them support map-based elevation estimate, but this is the only one that will work in areas without cellular Internet. Map caching is ultrafast! Kudos to the dev.
Its nice to know the altitude when you are not at sea level.
App worked at 9000 feet.
Tested while traveling. Exact accuracy when passing marked altitude signs along road. Amazing ap
Shows my latitude/longitude, but only in positive numbers (the decimal versions). Plug those numbers into any other app puts me in Russia, but I am in Alaska. Way off. Altitude is fairly accurate, wouldn't use to navigate in an aircraft, but accurate enough.
Does exactly what it should. Gives altitude, long and lats, barometric pressure and estimate of boiling point of water. Nice.
