    "Ingress is an augmented reality game that came before pokemon go, but launched this genre. It's still great. You go out into the world and fight over territory with other players. The game locations are based on actual real life locations!"

    "I am an apple fan and I have an apple iPhone. I found a great app called Spyglass from the apple app store. This is an incredible offline GPS that is essential for anyone who loves to get away from it all. It has too many features to name them all, the most impressive are the off line maps and GPS receiver. A must have for any mountain man."
