Views on Top

When on vacation visiting someplace new, it’s almost human nature to seek out these types of places: places that require big rides or climbs straight up in order to give you that wow bird’s eye, panoramic view. Views on Top is an app trying to compile a list of all those types of places around the world to make them easier for you to find. You can either search by activity or place or just poke around a map. Once you find a place, tap on the picture to get a few of the views, scroll down for information like where it is on a map and how to book a tour to the top or a meal on the top, if it’s a restaurant. The app still has plenty of work to do compiling a more comprehensive list of these views so it encourages you to add your shots and recommendations to the map to help with that effort. Views on Top is a free app right now for iOS devices.
