From that first link above:

Download your local areas, trip destinations, or all 75,000+ routes

Is every *&^%$#$ route in the world available on an iPhone? Were we all born too soon?

the one that I appreciated, we were at Rumney this summer, and Jannette who was with us has all the imaginable electronic bells and whistles (aka: apps.) so there was a thunderstorm kinda forecast but we were climbing, then hanging around by the crag so she whips out her Iphone and can see the storm approaching on the weathermap just as we can hear the first thunderboomers!! that's when we hightailed it for the car.
Oh wait, we probably would have done that without the Iphone just the same, lol!

LOL.....yep we need iphones to tell us we're about to get hit by lightning. I'm being slightly snarky, Smike and I have used that app for everything from roofing my house to driving through crappy weather, to bailing of routes.

Hmmm. Best apps huh? Well, chicken satay is good, and a little spinach artichoke dip is good for sharing. Perhaps some crab cakes?
