Two free apps help name that peak
Hey What’s That goes mobile
It’s been quite a while since I wrote about Hey What’s That?, a website that helps you identify mountains on the horizon. Well, today comes news that they have a mobile app for Android and iPhone (here is their mobile FAQ). So I tweeted about it and @CompeGPS turned me onto…
Peak.AR (iTunes link) is a free augmented reality app that looks much better. There’s a screenshot at the top of this post (note that both English and German languages are supported). It’s limited to the iPhone now, but an Android app is expected by the end of February.
GPS manufacturers lag
Why can I do this with my phone, but not my handheld GPS? This is exactly the sort of thing that is leading to the demise of the industry at the hands of mobile applications. The GPS industry needs to develop a new model based on the ability to deliver innovation rapidly before free mobile apps eat their lunch.
