Hill Lists (for iOS) version 5.2 now available

June 26, 2017 Comments off

hlicon57 Moved to version 15.5 of the Database of British and Irish Hills (DoBIH), a routine update with some minor changes to the HuMPS, Simms, Nuttalls and County Tops.

Added five new lists: the Administrative and Historic County Tops, Bridges, Buxton and Lewis, and Dillons. In doing so, I have tidied up the smaller lists into their UK equivalents: Deweys, Hewitts and Nuttalls. Apologies if you were tracking the region-specific versions of these, but individually they were pretty small.

This update also migrates to some new APIs from Dropbox, as the old ones are being permanently disabled in September 2017.

If you are currently using the Apps folder to store your backup files, you shouldn’t notice any difference. However if you are using the Root (i.e. top level) folder, you will need to re-link the app to Dropbox to continue using their service. Unfortunately files cannot be migrated automatically, but this is very easy to do from a computer. Please see my support site or get in touch if you need help.

Note that you now require iOS 8 or above. Older versions (of iOS and my app) will continue to work, but you will no longer get updates.
