thesarvo iPhone app - Tasmanian climbing guide

The thesarvo iPhone app is now in the iPhone app store.

Version 1.0 gives offline access in a mobile optimised interface to all of the Tasmanian route and boulder guides on thesarvo - over 3000 routes and 1500 problems.

It's priced at a reasonable $3.99 - proceeds go to the running costs of thesarvo.com.

To install it search for "thesarvo" on the iPhone app store, or go here:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/thesarvo/id379419619?mt=8

You need to be on Wi-Fi to install it as the app is about 60mb with all the topos included.

It should also work on an iPod Touch (although I havent tested it).

Brilliant stuff, Nerm. All I need now is to get an iPhone and move to TAS :)
Or port everything off ACA into thesarvo

Bought and downloaded! Looks awesome. Very clear and easy to use. Graphics and topos look good on the phone. Very usable for in the field.

Doesn't the iphone have a built in GPS? Maybe the app could tell you when you're off route.

The app is great - who's going to do one for Nowra and the Mtns? Simon??

I was wondering if the code was reuseable with different data files in the back end...

Possibly, and the ACA guides are a pretty obvious target and could be pretty useful to people. I'll get in contact with Adam Gibson and see whether its feasible.

Hi Jon,

Do you know if the app will work adequately, in it's present form, on the iPad?

I don't actually know, I haven't tested it (dont have an iPad). I'll see if I can find time on the weekend to download the iPad simulator and test it.

Works on the iPad - but as an iPhone sized app.
You can click on the "2x" button to make it take the whole screen.
It obviously is not a native iPad app but it runs fine (great job!)

Iphone apps would be cool. Not sure i would like to carry and ipad around the crag. At least with iphone u could ring for rescue or beta. Phone a friend.
I was speaking a couple of guys who write apps for iphone just yesterday about guidebook apps .
Its strange that the taswegians are onto already. I suppose nothing else 2 do down there in winter.
It would be cool if u could link with Gps. U could just stand at the climb and the app would tell u what route u r looking at.

Yes, not too many people would take an iPad to the crag but I've downloaded the app to my iPad, partly for the novelty aspect, partly for the satisfaction of being able to access information about climbs in a wide range of Tasmanian climbing areas, and partly to support the work that Jon Nermut continues to do for the local climbing scene. Thanks Jon!

As an aside, I suspect the iPad is no more weighty, or bulky, than the collection of hard copy guides required as the equivalent of this online version.

No, it's just that two heads are better than one!

Just can't let go of the Ryobi petrol drill for a cordless drill then? ;-)

Hand drills are the go, ... or better still, just the hammer!
Heh, heh, heh.
