Playground topos

hi Kaspa,

I'm one of the developers of and I just saw all the topos you've uploaded recently which are cool. I was wondering why you didn't use the built-in topo tools though and just drew the lines onto the photo itself? Is this because you had already drawn these previously, or there is something about the topo tool's that could be improved? Any feedback would be awesome

We're always trying to improve the site so if you have any idea or if anything annoys you let us know were a friendly bunch :)

btw what is the phone app you were using?

the app i have been using is called "crags" can be found on the iphone app store its not too flash just comes in handy when i dont have a camera near by. and i have just used your topo-tools for the first time and i think it is brilliant cant wait to do some more up and load them on the website

Hi Kaspa, we'll have an Android app out shortly that will let you take a snap, add the top line and load it up to our site. Hopefully i-Phone one won't be far away- first half of next year?? Campbell (another developer at thecrag)

awesome my cousin has told me you guys have an app coming out soon i am very much looking forward to using it when it is relesaed

Brendan Heywood replied 2 years ago

I've seen you've made a bunch of topos :)

I'm always interested in what peoples first impressions were, and how we could make it easier to use for new people. Was there anything that you had trouble with? Was there anything that didn't work the way you expected?

thought it was realy user friendly having the option to look at a tutorial was great it explains everything simply and was a real help. the only thing i could sugest is a few more bouldering lables such as "sit start" "standing start" "starting hold" "top-out" but thats about it i think :)
