Height Finder quickly and accurately calculates the altitude and elevation at your current location and at other locations around the world.


• Calculates current altitude or elevation
• Uses GPS for accurate altitude results
• Uses global mapping database for elevation
• Can display elevation on your home screen
• Can display all readings in feet or metres
• Shows increases and decreases as you move
• Custom artwork and animations
• Completely ad-free


Height Finder calculates your current altitude and elevation both indoors and outdoors, and even in areas with no network coverage.

The data is updated in real time as the device moves, and an on-screen arrow indicates the increase or decrease in altitude.

Tapping the on-screen reading will toggle between feet and meter display modes.

For best results outdoors and in areas with no network coverage, launch the app and allow the device a couple of minutes to obtain a strong GPS signal.


Please note that although every effort has been made to minimise power consumption, using this feature can dramatically decrease battery life.

Latest reviews of Height Finder app for iPhone and iPad

Dont bother, doesnt work!
This thing is useless! Constantly jumping hundreds of feet up and down.
Elevation Finder
Good app, but I wish it was a bit more consistent in its readings.
Altitude finder
For a free application, this pretty good even though the readings "wobble" a bit on occasion. If you need accuracy in actual feet (within ten feet) you should spend some cash for it.
This app does exactly what it says it would do.
CO traveler
Works perfectly well where ever I go.
