How to install PeakFinder APK on Android phone or tablet?
Download PeakFinder APK file from ApkClean, then follow these steps:
Update Phone Settings

Tap Security or Applications (varies with device)
Check the Unknown Sources box

Go to Downloads
Open Downloads on your device by going to My Files or Files
Tap the APK file you downloaded (org.peakfinder.area.alps-v3.5.0.apk)
Tap Install when prompted, the APK file you downloaded will be installed on your device.
A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.
Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?
A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading). As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.
Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?
A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.
Q: What are Android App permissions?
A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

5 ★best tool for defining peaks... i like the possibility to find the names of mountains on pictures i took in the past.... and totally awesome: it's global and very intuitive easy to use!
5 ★Best app for naming peaks (at least for the European Alps). I have used other free apps before, but they weren't that accurate and needed internet. With Peak finder, you download once the data and can use the app on the go, without worrying about data. It is also really accurate and the zoom in function lets you identify peaks farther away. And the best thing for me is that I can enter coordinates or the peak name and can do the identification of mountains on photos at home. Thumbs up!
5 ★I have owned the app for 15 seconds! I am in the mountains in British Columbia Canada. This is awesome! It's like watching an artist draw the mountain profile in front of my eyes
5 ★Purchased Peakfinder as a world traveler. So far it has worked incredibly well for my travels, telling me the names in English and the original language (romanized). In Japan, it has told me a great amount of information from small mountains in the distance to large mountains. It gives me a sense of where to go for pictures and hiking. This app has been of great usage and I'm always excited to see new places around me and what they are called. No more guessing, "what's that mountain over there"
2 ★Very disappointed. Sometimes, while in a remote area and no internet, for some obscure reason, the app needs to install some kind of data, which it strangely didn't need to when I left home. Which means that I have no access to any peak while in the mountains, when that happens. Then, even after calibration, the peaks are way off, like it shows me the peaks to the south when I point to the west. I calibrate again. Same result. It's a chance I only lost $6.
5 ★This app is amazing. It is so fun even to use from a high point in my neighborhood. I always wondered what foothills I looking at and never bothered or remembered to get out the topographic maps when I got home. I like being view a location I will be at in the near future to see parks or interest ahead of time so that I can read about them first. The app has always worked pretty well on phones. Occasionally it stutters and I often have to recalibrate the compass.
5 ★Works well on my moto g5 plus hiking in Montana. Very useful. So far, only minor glitches. Once it seemed to get my location a bit off, showing peaks from an incorrect angle, though it corrected after a bit. And sometimes a reasonably prominent peak is not named in the program and then, a bit later is named. Zooming in seems to help keep it named. I have recommended this program to several other hikers.
5 ★I am so in love with this app!! I have had this app for years and love the way new features are being added to make it easier to use. I love the altitude and distance features and was so suprised when I found that even some of the small hills around where I live had been added. sometimes you need to look carefully at the outlines of the mountains to make sure you're lining them up correctly - but that's not difficult to do 😁😁 ooooh yes! Almost forgot the overlap feature - Finding it so useful.
4 ★I was having similar problems with my PeakFinder, but it turns out many of them were a result of two "operator error" -problems. 1) Never seemed to show the peaks in the direction I was pointing. I could manually match peaks to what I (or the camera) was seeing, but never did it automatically. This turned out to be interference with my vehicle(s) and a magnetic catch. Moving away from both resolved the problem...now lines up perfectly. 2) Wasn't showing peaks near me. Not sure why not (PeakFinder shouldn't need to be told "find me"), but selecting the tiny GPS button in the app snapped immediately to the right surroundings. Really like the height adjustment tool, and getting great labeled photos of mountains here in the White Mountains.
2 ★Never seem able to find them peaks.
4 ★Overall this app is impressive. However, when I pay for a product I expect it to be 100% functional, which is not the case. So far I have not been able to use the 'search by peak name' feature and I've witnessed too many crashes while using the app. I expect these issues to be solved in the upcoming releases.
2 ★I've found this app disappointing. I've tried using it on several occasions. The AR feature doesn't work well but I'm willing to blame my phone for that. But even when I do it manually, it seems very inaccurate, to such a degree that it's sometimes very hard to correctly identify a peak, especially when there are more than one in close proximity. The representation of the mountain contours are not realistic enough for it to work well. At least in my experience
