Hill Lists 6.0 coming soon

February 25, 2018 Comments off

hlicon57 Over the past few months I have been slowly rewriting my Hill Lists app from scratch. The original code is almost 10 years old, and while I keep it up-to-date with iOS changes, it is fair to say it is not maturing like a good malt! 🙂

In version 6.0, I have completely redesigned the UI to make it a bit more intuitive. All the main ways to interact with the app are now readily accessible using the icons at the bottom of the screen: tracking your lists, viewing your ascents, searching all hills in the app, viewing statistics (new!) and viewing nearby hills on a scrollable map.

I have also added a few new features, including support for the iPhone X, exporting your ascents in a format used by and two new colour themes.

I have updated the database to version 16.0 too, adding the Dodds, and re-instating regional variants of the Deweys, Hewitts, HuMPs, Marilyns, Nuttalls and Simms (where missing).

If anyone would like to try this out and give feedback before I release it, please get in touch.
