Smartphone App Question
« on: 19:11:43, 05/03/20 »
Whilst in the lakes yesterday I saw a couple next to me on the Ullswater Steamer holding their phones to the horizon and I could see each peak labelled with what I presume was it's name. Can anyone point me in the direction of the app or similar that might help identify these places of beauty?

ViewRanger can do it on certain phones, I'm sure a quick google will find more

On the free Viewranger app the bit that identifies landscapes is called Skyline. It is simple to use but check out the VR website as it is not usable on every phone.
Too little, too late, too bad......
