    ForeFlight is by far, the most useful, well built, feature-filled and intuitive mobile app ever made. When comparing the cost to the benefit of the app it wins hands down. Amazing!
  • Perfected routing

    By drew1101david
    My biggest pet peeve and only complaint is that the preferred routing on foreflight always has an error loading. About 1 out of 20 times I can get it to show me the recently approved routes. I don’t really want to flip out the chart supplement and figure it out when I can just do it simply on foreflight. Especially since I usually fly ifr

    I have been flying for only about 15 years, instrument rated for 14 and instrument current since then; and I am comfortable to say that ForeFlight has improved the experience and safety of flying more than anything else I have seen over that time – even the G1000 avionics of my Mooney. Although I am a doctor and a teacher of medicine, I was VP for IT at my hospital for a decade and have written a good deal of software. When I give talks about the horrible things that are happening right now to medical computing, I use ForeFlight as an example of how software good should and can be. Highest recommendations without reservation.

    FF is easily the best app for aviation. I have all others, and they are not bad, some even good (eg GP), but I will not leave home without FF. Connecting to various Garmin devices now makes it a great in flight manager as well. I am glad that emphasis is placed on pre-flight management in this update. While flying multiple aircraft in various conditions, different performances, loads, settings, it is all adjusted on the fly through a pilot centered, intuitive interface. This makes keeping track of all data pertinent to a flight, as well as briefing, filing and tracking the flight as easy as can be. As an app goes, it is not cheap like a 2.99 game, but as an essential, reliable tool it is the cheapest utility around in all of aviation. In a world where we measure things in AMU’s, this app and it’s subscription fees are nothing to cry about, and in my opinion the subscription fee is the least I can contribute to keep this ForeFlight team eager to improve and grow. My only concern is not related to FF, but more related to the iPad and its very short life cycle before obsolescence. I am already concerned about what will happen when iPads cease to exist. For now, i am including a new iPad every other year to the price of doing business.

    Going on almost 3 years since Apple implemented split screen, yet it's still not supported by ForeFlight.

    I (quite expensively) tried a few others and I'll staying here with ForeFlight. Geo-ref IAPs, route planning, briefing, weather overlays, alerts, and rock solid filing. If you can swallow hard and embrace the NOS, then you will love this. If not, I simply could not recommend the S/A blackhole that develops using other slower, non-responsive, less capable EFBs *cough (FDP)*.

    Started out using Garmin Pilot because it came free with my private pilot course thru Cessna. Garmin Pilot is Greta but ForeFlight is outstanding. Amazing app! I love the fact that I can plan a flight in the app including a recorded briefing so I no longer have to use a 3rd party source like DUATS or FLTPLAN.com. One feature that is missing is the ability to manually change the visibility of map icons based on the map range. Garmin Pilot has this setting. ForeFlight does it automatically but I can’t customize the settings. So for example when my map range is at 20 miles, if I only want to see large airports and class B airspace but not smaller airports and other airspace, I can’t customize this setting in ForeFlight. And if my map range is at 2 miles, I want to see all airports and airspaces, I can’t customize this setting. Garmin Pilot has a lot more customer settings for map layer visibility based on the selected map range. Other that this issue, ForeFlight is superior to Garmin Pilot in every other way.
