Great app, does the job And gives coord. (Lat, Lon). 5 stars.
Useful tool to roughly evaluate the heights - fast calculations.
I have reviewed many Altimeter Apps and purchased at least 3. This is definitely the most accurate. I recommend this App. I gave it only 4 stars because I feel the interface could still use a little improvement...
Used it on a motorcycle tour of BC. Really useful, and useable anywhere.

Some bad moments

Took on an aircraft (not over 10,000) and does not work on either mode when airborne. Complete failure when cell coverage is lost.
Doesnt fit iphone 5 screen. Amazing app please make it fit iphone 5 screen.
The UI and features are good, but neither the Apple Watch or iPhone version will retain my preferences for feet instead of meters. I will probably request a refund. There seems to be no support for this app. Good if you use the metric system. Otherwise not so much.
As others have mentioned, my unit settings (ft) are not remembered which is annoying, otherwise I would give more stars.
Great app, easy to use, accurate and a good source of information
Does exactly what it says it does: measure altitude. & so far has done a very good job
