Announcing SOTA Goat for iOS

Hey SOTA folks,

I’m very happy to announce the release of SOTA Goat for iOS in the iTunes App Store. It includes a searchable summit database that is accessible offline, and online integration with SOTAwatch to read and post both spots and alerts. I think you guys will find it extremely handy for doing activations and finding nearby summits if you’re travelling.

Wow Rockwell! Just a first impression and a quick test, but I think you have hit a home run with this app. The interface is clean and simple, and the ability to generate a spot from an existing spot or alert is perfect. I have been looking for just those features and it will be great on the summit or at home (desktop app? nudge nudge wink wink). It also very nice that alerts/spots are posted by yourself which means they can be edited directly on SOTA Watch, unlike the SMS or APRS gateways (which are great tools and the APRS gateway saved my sanity on my last activation).

Thanks and keep up the excellent work!

Not sure if i have to update the app, or you have to. But the new LA/ST summits (added 1st of February), is nowhere to be seen in this app…
Realy nice to be able to see summits in neighbouring associations/ regions, if the summits are displayed… :slight_smile:

As far as I know, the app doesn’t pull the data down from the database so he has to manually update the app every time a new association is added or to update the “last activated by” feature. I know he just moved across the country, so he’s probably still settling into his new home and job.
