Heading for the boondocks? Don't forget Alti - a new, simple and pretty compass and altimeter application for the iPhone and iPad. Besides the obvious functionalities, like showing where north is, and how far from the sea level you've managed to climb yourself up, Alti also sports a minimalistic, easy-on-the-eye design, that flaunts a variety of backgrounds.
Its options include an altitude meter, magnetic and true north compass, as well as coordinates for DMS and also degrees. Thus, Alti might come indispensable if you get stuck in the woods, or if you have to monitor someone's altitude sickness, choosing the safest route that won't exacerbate things without a reason. As per one user review of Alti: "A friend of mine I go camping with has COPD and altitude affects him. It’s nice to know where the high elevations are so we can avoid them or minimize our time there
Last but not least, you can share your readings with friends and family via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with a single tap, which might come in handy for bragging purposes, or so that they can guesstimate your last available location.
