Show Me Hills

Mountain identification

Augmented reality application which overlays the names of hills and mountains on a camera view. The supplied data for hills of the UK and Ireland is better than that for the rest of the world.

N.B Although it is not necessary (since v0.30) to have Google Maps installed to install the app, attempting to view the map overlay mode if you don't have Google maps installed, will crash the app. Even if you have that installed the "birds eye", map overlay mode won't work because the only map source is Google Maps and there isn't an API key in the source code.

Anti-feature: Tracking. Crash reports are sent without interaction, but that can be disabled in the settings. Google Analytics was removed before building.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
