Travel Altimeter Lite by Patzer LLC gives you the ability to use your iPad to view your elevation or altitude on landscapes that actually change with the time of the day.
With this app you'll be able to easily read latitude, longitude, altitude, or elevation. What makes it really great is the minimalistic and clean user-interface which means the screen is uncluttered and very easy to read. This is key when you want to be able to quickly get the readings/information.
Features of the app include being able to view the information in meters or feet, the ground elevation as a topographical map value, GPS, and even a built-in flashlight for your convenience.
You can use the social sharing options to show people where you are on Facebook, Twitter, by text message, or email. If you want a background you can upgrade with the in-app purchase and use the ones provided by the app or take your own picture to use.
This latest version of the app features a smoother user-interface, landscape mode for the iPad, and the text is larger than before making it easier to read. There are all kinds of reasons this app can come in handy whether you're hiking, cycling, snowmobiling, skiing, or any other activity that you'd want to know elevation information.
