Top-10 Apps for Climbing
  2017-08-13 00:00:00    
Friction Labs has listed the Top-10 Climbing Apps including commenting Pros and Cons and the first mentioned is Vertical-Life.

"Vertical Life is the most well-designed app on this list. It’s pleasing to the eye, features inviting color schemes and photos, and is easy to navigate. Its guide topos (i.e. visual representations of the routes on a wall) are beautifully crafted and easy to follow."

Where is "8a.nu Topos"?!?

We did stop updating that App for more than one year ago. Vertical-Life will include the 8a data in their App this autumn.

Interesting news. But what does this mean in practice:
a) for an average 8a.nu user (better topos but at the price of moving them behind a paywall, ...)
b) for 8a.nu (new 8a.nu website in exchange of data, more Vertical-Life ads on 8a.nu, ...)
c) for Vertical-Life (more visibility for their products, ...)

As the 8a App does not offer Any topos, it is of course an advantage that Vertical-Life could offer some. There Will be less Adde on the first page and overall Everything Will be better :)

I am looking forward to spending my money on 8a.nu/Vertical-Life topos and browsing the new and shiny 8a.nu website filled with a huge Vertical-Life ad.
