Many of us out there use Android smart phones (the clever ones at least :lol: ).
I wanted an app basically that linked to 8a.nu to keep track of routes and/or problems etc...
This does not exist though :evil:
Anyway, I found a "substitute" called Climbdroid (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.climbdroid&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5jbGltYmRyb2lkIl0.) that works very well.
Although there is a bit of initial setup in adding crags/etc, it works rad.
You can also attach GPS locations and photo's from your phone to the applications database.

There appears to be an online database from which you can retrieve some crag information. Not sure if what you upload/add get updated in that database for others to be able to access though. Hopefully it does, which will make adding new climbs more simple :)

Anyway, I found it nice and useful.
Go give it a try if you're interested.

Cheers,
Cuan

Hey Cuan - also looking into this. Would be nice if there was one commonly used by many RSA persons, so that the data could be shared...have you tried any others till now?

Howzit Jacques,

Nope, I've not tried any others aside from 8a.nu's terrible one.
Climbdroid is pretty good, but it would be great if it uploaded your stuff to an online database when you're in range.
Anyhoo, lemme know if you come across anything.

When ya guys doing montagu again?
