New free app for hikers and mountaineers launched

We have launched SummitLynx for Android-Phones. With this FREE app you can log in to summits all over of the world via GPS and prove that you have conquered the mountain. You can check into the virtual Summit-Book, shoot a photo and collect your achievements in the Chronicle (Name of the mountain, Date & Time). SummitLynx gives you the ability to connect instantly with your friends via Facebook so you can share your accomplishment.

In addition, you can earn virtual medals on predefined routes and a wide variety of competitions will be held throughout the year. Yet another way hikers and climbers can be rewarded for their efforts.

Even though our database includes an extensive number of mountains worldwide, if you find a summit, which is still not on SummitLynx, it is quick and easy to register it so that it is accessible to other climbers.
