This works on an ipod Touch, without the need for a phone subscription, right?

Right, all iOS devices. No cell signal required. Download data using wifi, then take it climbing!

Me in the Buddha Cave at crumblewood a while ago.

To help with adoption and allow for a discerning set of users to experience the app I would have a "Free" version and the paid version.

The Free version will be limited so that users can download it, test it, and understand if it will actually suit their needs before purchasing the full app. Obviously it should have something limited on it. Maybe you can only download a few popular areas, or only download up to a certain number of areas, or pictures aren't included, etc

I feel Ad supported is a waste of space as I am even more unlikely to click on an ad on my phone then I am when I am online.

I support a paid version and I think if you have a good free version and a amazing paid version that you should charge a premium for the paid version.

I'd pay a couple of bucks for the app.

Well, I'll admit that I'm cheap with Apps, I tend to download and use what is free. That being said, the convenience of the downloads in the beta version is nice; previously I have been loading up "miniguides" on several pages before heading out to the crag. I would pay $0.99-$3.00; but I also would NOT MIND seeing advertisements if it meant the app was free!

how about different versions? One free and ad supported, a basic one, and a "premium" one? Could enable more storage and/or gps features on premium one or something like that.

Funny, we been discussing just that for the last day or so. There are very significant costs for some things (particularly high-res photos), so we might do something around there.

Probably 2-3 weeks from now. We're going to have a second (and final) round of beta testers use it in a day or two.

Wouldn't think twice about paying $5.00. Great resource.

Can I get in on that second round?

I think MP would pull more revenue off of advertising vs a paid version of it. Make it non-invasive to where you can scroll away from it, instead of giving up a centimeter across the bottom of the page. That will still bother a few people that have sticks where they shouldn't be, so allow them to pay a subscription fee to make up for the loss and remove the ignorable ads.

I would rather the app be a one time payment rather than a yearly cost. I really don't like dealing with yearly or monthly payments. Even though it may be cheaper in the long run for one to pay $.99 or $1.99 or what every what was suggested, in my opinion it would be easier to pay a one time purchasing fee for the app. I think anything under $5 would be reasonable.

Can't wait for the app either way!

I would happily pay an annual fee rather than have ads.

Would happily pay $5-$10 for the app.

If you need another beta tester, I'm your man!

Climbing the umbilical cord, the bolt just to my left was a spinner. Two really deep holds right there but they sound so hollow.

After testing the app for a few days I can say that one of the nicest things about it is how clean it is. I think having ads would mess that aspect of it up.

Where is the release? Hasn't it been long enough? I'm trying to be as patient as I can, but an app this awesome has to be released before the end of our summer here in NY..

i would definitley pay for this app. the download feature would be invaluable in areas without reception (and how many aren't...?).

this is a fantastic site and the mobile version is going to be revolutionary...

The release is delayed while we add these features:

- download all photos for an area (and all areas/routes below)
- login and sync your To Do's, Ticks, and Stars
- allow you to Tick and rate climbs on the phone and sync when you get back online.
