I have been using the new version of PeakFinder all summer and have found it extremely useful. It has the names of so many small peaks you never new even had names. There is the odd issue with calibrating your phone's magnetometer since it can drift (this is the case with any app that uses the phones magnetometer though). However you can also apply a manual offset to correct for any compass oddities as well as manual offsets for elevation if the GPS data isn't super accurate at your location. I think this is one of the best apps out there - its simple yet so powerful and the art style is beautiful imho. The new version will also show you exactly where the sun will set/rise based on your elevation which is really helpful.
