Doesn't work for me. Peak Finder USA West does not find the correct peaks. When I point it at the direction of known peak, it gives me other peaks from other places.

ALASKA NOT INCLUDED?? >:-0 Fun app. Could use a better way to select which names to show - sometimes it will show minor peaks instead of major ones.

Could be real nice app with declination added. +1 with Eric Jain. Same area, same overall thoughts

Close... I've used this app in a few places around Washington State. Beats having to take pictures and figure out what you were looking at in Google Earth when you get home. But sometimes peaks that you'd expect to be labelled aren't, and the app does not correct for magnetic declination (~20° around here). I reported this issue a while ago; still hoping it gets fixed sometime.
