Hill Lists 3.0 now available

July 10, 2011

Hill Lists has been out for well over 2 years now, so I thought it was time to give it a bit of a rewrite. Major changes include …

– cleaner user interface
– changed the way lists are managed. You now select those you want to track, rather than by region, and you can arrange them in any order you want
– added an “All Hills” list. It is impractical to view this on a map though, as there are 4565 hills!
– added support for setting your default location by searching for a place or postcode. Results are restricted to the UK and Ireland only
– your default location is always shown on the main screen, and you can switch between grid reference and latitude/longitude by tapping on the location itself
– as part of the Backups feature, added support for Dropbox. This makes it trivial to sync your data between your iPhone and iPad, in addition to protecting your data and settings

    Hi Graham
    I just tried to update this app via wifi at home and it crashed. It hung waiting for a while. Eventually I switched my iPhone off and on again and the old version was gone. I’m not very techy ….. Any suggestions??

      Hi Lyn, further to our email, this looks like the AppStore update got stuck rather than any problem with my app. It happens from time to time. Usually rebooting your phone, or just trying again later fixes things.

    Great update, added and removed some lists, but how do you re-order them ?

      Hi Stephen, select Edit, then touch and hold the icon to the right of the list you want to re-order (the one with three horizontal bars). Then drag and drop into position. This is part of Apple’s standard UI across all iOS apps (i.e. whenever you see this, it works the same way in all apps).
