The topos of Céuse and Corsica underwent a huge facelift embedding important updates provided by the authors of the offical paper guidebooks.
And of course, those who have already purchased the topos benefit from these free updates / improvements!
Céüse: the big update!
The new edition of the paper guide was released in 2018 and Laurent Girousse provided us with all the updates that we reported on our digital guides. Hundreds of additional routes, adjustments / refinements of grades, new sectors (colors of autumn, Lumineuse, Butterfly) bolted by newcomers. In a nutshell, a guide almost made from scratch :)
What is obvious in this update is also the huge work of historical research that the authors have done. Indeed, the crews behind the genesis of almost every channel (among more than 600 indexed!) are indicated. This is an important information for the authors / climbers / crew who can recompose a piece of history of the cliff. About that, the Android app has been updated (see below).
As usual, Céuse can be bought on our apps, in its "entirety" or by packs / sectors:
- COMPLETE guide
- East faces
- West faces
- South faces (buyable by sectors : Face de Rat, Demi-Lune, Berlin, Biographie, Beau mouv')
Corsica: il totale !
Corsica has also seen a big update, coupled with the birth of new packs. You now have access to all the sporting crags of Corsica up to date. Either a little more than 2000 routes!
The authors decided to propose the following division:
- The FULL guide
- The region "Grand Sud"
- The region "Center"
- The region of Ajaccio
- The region of Balagne and Porto
- The region of Bastia
In each pack, you can buy guides unitary and again, an amazing job has been done by Thierry Souchard and Bertrand Maurin to offer a maximum of information, news (including the new area of La Lonca which has the big advantage of being climbable in summer) and bolters most of the time. In addition, a lot of additional information has appeared for guides buyers with a lot of practical information.
iOS and Android apps evolutions
To be able to treat and displays theses informations, iOS and Android apps has been updated with some new features :
First, a new text area appears when a guide has been purchased. It is a riched text box that allows authors to give a lot of details to buyers of their guides. It can be found in "Miscellaneous information" on iOS and "More details" on Android. Don't forget the access plan that appears in the Android menu when it is available.
Finally, each route can be enriched with information such as comments from the authors, height, interest sometimes and bolters names (we talked about it above). Under iOS, a double tap on the route allows to have this detail. On Android, it was a long press and it was not very intuitive. So we added a little button "i" to make it more obvious.
A big up to Max and Guigui, our 2 Android developers who take on their free time to develop the app. New features are coming soon!
Thanks also to CamCam which is a smartphone noob and denounces everything that is not intuitive :)
