Apple have today approved version 1.2 of the app, which is now available to download from the App Store.
This update features a new Panorama Mode. Tap anywhere on the map and then tap the Panorama button. The app will compute the view from this point, and show it in two ways.
Firstly, the app shades the map to indicate what can be seen from the selected viewpoint - or equivalently, from where that point can be seen. So if you select a mountain summit it shows what can be seen from that peak, and from where the peak can be seen. Visible areas are shown normally in colour, and invisible areas are shown in dark monochrome.
Secondly, the app shows a silhouette of the view from that viewpoint. You can pan and zoom this panel, resize it, and expand it to full screen.
A vertical line - a cursor - through the silhouette corresponds to another line on the map itself; you can adjust exactly what is shown by tapping on the gear settings button on the silhouette panel. Distances and altitudes of the features shown on the silhouette can be shown and correlated with the same features on the main map.
I hope you like this new feature; don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
