What's NewIMPORTANT: before any app update, I recommend backing up your data and exporting this off your device, e.g. by email or to Dropbox/iCloud. For support and/or questions, PLEASE use my website and you will get a very quick response (unless of course I'm up some Munro or other!!).
Added support for weather forecasts per hill, specifically for Scotland, the Lake District, the Peak District/Yorkshire Dales and Snowdonia. This information is provided by directly accessing the Mountain Weather Information Service webpages (http://www.mwis.org.uk), thanks to some much appreciated co-operation from Andy Ross. The implementation is fairly crude, as it simply maps the section the hill is in to the MWIS regions.
Completely changed the backend database to use the newly released version 13.1 of the Database of British and Irish Hills. This replaces the separate databases for Scotland, Isle of Man, Wales and England (DoBIH) and Ireland (MountainViews). I would particularly like to thank Simon Stewart from MountainViews for supporting a merge of their data into the DoBIH. Also Chris Crocker and team for their excellent support.
NOTE: version 13.1 does include a change to the summit location of Beinn a'Chroin (Munro). There is a note in the app about this as it might well affect your Munro count (it did mine!).
The number of hills supported is now 7315. The only casualty is the MountainViews 150s list, which the DoBIH doesn't support. To compensate for this, I have added support for the following new lists ...
Scotland: County Tops, Donald Deweys, Graham Tops and Highland Fives
Isle of Man: County Tops
Wales: County Tops and Furths (replaces the 3000s)
England: County Tops and Furths
Ireland: Carns (replaces the 400s), County Tops, Hewitts, HuMPs, Marilyns and Myrddyn Deweys
You will also notice that the previous UK lists (other than the Trail 100) have been replaced by the equivalent regional ones (e.g. County Tops, Hewitts, HuMPs, Marilyns ... etc).
Full details are in the User Guide (tap the settings icon).
Finally please continue to support my app by leaving a review on iTunes. Your feedback is always appreciated!
