It might take a while for the iTunes search function to pick it up again. My wife just used iTunes and clicked "View in App Store" from the 14ers.com app icon (already downloaded) on her computer and it showed it in iTunes under "Travel" but also told me it still doesn't show up in the Search function.

Additionally, the iTunes App Preview page is working again: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/14ers.c ... 55294?mt=8

I'll take a look again tonight and tomorrow morning...

I got it Bill, using that last link.

Not that a natural navigator like myself needs it. I just find it interesting.

For those of you using the app, it would be very helpful to us if you provide a rating or review in the app store.

25,000 people have downloaded the iOS version of the app but we have less than 50 ratings.

how do you rate the app that was so brilliantly written it doesnt continously bug you to rate it?

I will rate this app 1 star until you implement the features that I want.

* augmented reality overlay route on camera view.
* audible coaching for hand and foot placement on class 3+ terrain.
* ability to print a custom ice axe on an "airprint' enabled 3d printer.

Little Bear Peak (West Ridge Route) on iPhone:

Every time I try to "Save Maps/Images for Offline", it crashes the app. Tried closing the app, restarting iPhone, etc, with no luck.

Other routes downloaded with no problems. Thanks. AE
Sack up and climb.

The data is probably flogged in the app. I'd suggest deleting the app and reinstalling it from the App Store.

The Little Bear photo and guidebook pages were relocated back under the "Blanca Group" a while back and I know it was causing some app problems earlier this year. That could be the cause.
