Peak of the Day
iOS

Widgets are one of the most fascinating features of the new iOS 14 introduced by Apple in 2020. We are embracing this great opportunity and produced a mountain widget!

Like all passionate outdoor enthusiasts, we would love to see majestic mountains every day, enjoy beautiful photographs, and see distant peaks from all over the world. With more than a million mountains on Earth, there’s quite a lot to explore! The new Peak of the Day widget allows you to see the finest summits right on your Home Screen. The list is manually curated by our editorial team every day.

Peak of the Day widgets are available on iPhones and iPads in several shapes and sizes: from small to large and with two levels of text details. You can always tap on a mountain in the widget and the app will provide detailed information about it. There’s even an option to Teleport to the summit and check out the panorama from there as well as to explore a 3D map.

Here are widget screenshots made on iPhone
