The following description comes from the Google Play Store description of the app:FREE mobile log for Hikers and Mountaineers
Your personal summit and hiking register for smartphones. Check in to summits and alpine hotspots all over the world and prove via GPS that you have conquered the mountain!
With this FREE app you check into a virtual Summit-Log and collect your achievements in a Chronicle (Name of the mountain, Date & Time). With SummitLynx you can take a photo & share your accomplishments with your friends via Facebook, so they’ll immediately see when you stand on top of a mountain and celebrate your success.
But that’s not all. With this GPS-Log you can earn virtual medals and badges on predefined routes, yet another way hikers and climbers can be rewarded for their efforts. Also, competitions will be held throughout the year.
