/ UK Climbing App
What would you want the app to do?
We are working on a Rockfax App linking into UKC Logbooks which should be available later in the year.
As for a UKC content app, our thinking now is to work on mobile-friendly versions of the site rather than an actual app.
We do, of course, have the UKC Finder App and the UKC TopPhotos app already although I do acknowledge that these are somewhat limited.

Make me climber better, harder, stronger.
I'd like to be able to find crags around me, look at the grades and photos.
Be able to log a climb, at the crag its self, upload instantly to the app/site whilst you're at the crag.
Find users around you. It would be awesome if you could search, users near me now or recently. Say you could "check-in" with a message. "Martin is at Frogsmouth Quarry in Runcorn - 'I'll be here until 9.30pm, come find me, orange rope, blue t-shirt.'" - That would be good and useful I think.
I'd download that the day it came out.

I'm not too sure that an app would help you with those things Krikoman.
