This is the place to talk about the iPhone & Android App. If you click the "Feedback" link in the app, you'll land here.

Please review other posts before accidentally starting a duplicate discussion.

And tell us which app you're using and which build number (in the More Options page).

App is great! I use it quite often. The only problem I have is that everytime I log onto mountainproject.com it puts up a message asking me to buy the app even though I have it. Not a big deal, it's just an extra step. I get the promotional aspect of it, but I would like to see an improved system that knows if you have the app already like other sites do. Ryan N

Quick question. If I open the app somewhere where I have no service will the app lock me out since it can't "verify my subscription"? Steve86

Installs on iPad fine but higher res native version would be nice!

Some bugs:
  • Photos with long descriptions (e.g., visual topos with a dozen routes marked (e.g., this image: mountainproject.com/v/10643812..., you can't scroll through the caption to see all the routes

  • I can do a "Download All Photos" on an area, and it does that, and all photos are then marked with the little green arrow or whatever the icon is; but then when I'm offline, if I click on those photos (and have never viewed them previously while on WiFi), they come up blurry, without a caption, and with a "No Internet Connection" watermark or description (don't recall which at the moment). (e.g., I was at Jtree last weekend and did a download all photos for Sheep Pass Area. All the subareas then got marked as having all photos downloaded, but upon trying to view subarea photos while not connected, I get the above bug.

Basically makes the "Download All Photos" function useless as I end up either having to view each photo while connected, or needed connectivity at the crag (which I don't as I only have a WiFi iPad).

Those are the two major bugs I've found. Anyone with an iPhone experience then when in airplane mode or out of cellular range?

Used it extensively over the last two weeks & love it.

Missed the ability to see certain other details such as the FA party, length of route, which users gave it how many stars and which users gave it what rating. Don't miss the clutter, but would love a little button/link to call up a separate page with this info.

When I assign a route stars on the app, does that upload/sync to my online mp.com profile? Would love to see that happen.

Roundup of questions so far:

Mark: no, nothing planned for iPad. We think the site works well enough, and use the app if you're going offline. We'll reconsider in a year or so when the phone apps have all the features we want.

Graham: Partner finder is in the long-term plans (6 months?). Since we're charging for the data subscription, there will be no ads in the apps. See above for ipad.

Wayne: probably still a couple months for Android. I promise we really are working on it.

Ryan: bug noted, I'll work on it.

Steve: No, if you are offline, your previously verified sub will remain verified. A few users have had problems with this on rare occasions, so the new version of the app to be released in ~2 weeks will fix it.

TJ: thanks for the bugs - we'll work on them.

Josh: FA info IS there. Length is not. Other users's stars are in ticks and comments (though it is not a complete list). Yes, if you assign stars, then later use the "sync my data" button, the web site will be updated.

Austin: see above.

Been using the app for a while and it's good but I think there is one glaring gap that needs to be addressed which will make it awesome. The ability to add routes right from the app. There are a lot of missing routes at even well documented crags. If you had the ability to snap a beta shot and add info while you're right in front of the route (then sync with MP next time you're within wifi range) that would be of great value and probably increase your database size quicker then people just adding routes on the PC. Not to mention the beta descriptions may be more precise as it is fresh in the mind.

I understand there may be bandwidth issues but just limit it to new route additions and adding beta photos to existing routes without any photos.

By "a couple of months for Android" do you mean a couple of months until the beta testing starts or a couple of months until the final app gets released? JulianB

I think "winter 2012" is through March 21. I think we can hit the full release by then. Apple approval took about 2 months, and Android skips that step, so that helps a lot.

Still loving the app! It would be nice to be able to delete routes from your todo list, as it is nice to be able to do this at the same time as ticking it. Cory

Using Version 1.1 (Build 15) and love it.

In addition to L->R, R->L, and Alpha, it would be helpful to be able to sort an area/sub-area by rating as well:

I have not been able to download high def. photos for access at the crags. The photos included in the downloaded cliff version are pretty much useless. Seems I have to be connected wifi to look at anything pffft. I think you should seriously consider upscaling the app for iPad. Accessing large, high res. beta photos at the cliff would be worth the weight. Kirk Miller

Great app.

I've uploaded a new route on MP via my laptop but it doesn't show on the App. Does the route database on the app update automatically or do I have to reinstall the app to see the updated routes?

Also I agree with the previous comment it would be great to be able to update directly from app

I've tried several times to download the "Boulder" area, and it has failed every time. I've tried it on several different wireless networks, in case that might make a difference. I successfully downloaded a smaller area.

Any suggestions?

@AndroidWanters: Nick and I are playing with an early release of Android. It is probably still a few months away, but it is coming!

@Rich: Have you tried deleting the data (More Options on the bottom) and reinstalling. Just curious.....

Rock Climbing Photo: Me before a cold Nov day at the Gunks, 2007.
Using iPhone app (Build 15).

Two things would be really useful for me:
(1) Organizing downloaded areas by state, or even by self-defined groups. E.g., I live in MA, and there a dozen small areas on my phone. It'd be great not to have to scroll through those when I'm headed to NH. Even better, it'd be nice to be able to lump things into Metro Boston, Western MA, etc in groups or folders

(2) An "update all" button that would just update all the areas I've downloaded at once, so I could easily do this when I'm someplace with good wireless.

Thanks for all the work on the app, it's a very useful tool!

I'm pretty sure I did before I tried to reinstall it the last time. I believe the app came with the Tetons for free, and that isn't there anymore which leads me to believe I clicked the "delete all data" button. Which leads to another question -- is that really the only option (deleting all of it). If I eventually download multiple areas, and then decide I want to delete just one, do I have to delete it all and start over? Seems unlikely, so maybe I just haven't ever had two areas installed to see that more options appear...

Anyway, assuming I had deleted before trying to reinstall, any other thoughts?
