  • Weather bugs go unfixed, Apple Watch Deleted

    If you have multiple weather sources connected, like LTE, a GDL 39 etc... Weather will often not display. If one source does not have data, then it will block data from all other sources. The only way to get weather is to turn off the equipment, or connections one at a time in trial and error fashion. Got an Apple Watch to use with Foreflight, then found they deleted the advertised function in an update. Wish I could use Foreflight, however the lack of weather forces me to use other products that do not have this bug. Have no problem with other weather apps when multiple weather sources are connected. I did report this bug both in person at Oshkosh 5 months ago, and via email.
  • It works great for me.

    Thanks for quickly updating us to know if we should update to the new iOS firmware or not. It means a lot because I use this app as my primary source of navigation. My secondary source is my sectional chart in my bag now collecting dust.
  • Does Not Support Stratux AHRS

    I will not be renewing my subscription thanks to ForeFlight’s decision to not support AHRS from Stratux. They like to blame it on Stratux, but it’s clear from their language that they are trying to force people to use THEIR Stratus2. Greedy behavior ruins yet another promising company.

    I have to say that I am very pleased with the app so far. I just used it on a trip from TNCM to KFXE and it definitely delivered! Still learning all the features as I go. A lot of people recommended me Foreflight for verious reasons but it took a chat with my friend Sam Wilson who happened to work for the company to convince me! I am looking froward to using the app on all my flights. Great buy!

    Last update buggy. Slowed down my new mini 4. Can not open taxiway drawing from the airports tab. Now have to go to plates to open it. iPhone and iPad versions seem ok but slower

    What happened to the compatibility with apple watch? I used to utilize features on apple watch all the time and after the last update, now they're gone. Will that be returning?
  • Apple Watch?

    This app does NOT work with the New Apple Watch...how can this be?
  • Disappointed in the iPhone app

    Glad to see the update to the iPhone app to more closely match the iPad version. I’ve always wished for no differences at all. Sadly we lost the Watch app in the process. We also lost the ability to display the flight plan progress on the iPhone at the top of the map, which we could do before the update, and we can still do on the iPad. Weirdly, that space is occupied with the estimated trip totals, even when you’re well into the flight. Also, there’s still no display of attitude info available in the iPhone app. I can’t think of any good reason for this continued omission. And, there’s still no way to get ride of the nexrad progress bar without getting rid of all nexrad display. Why display a big obtrusive progress bar while showing a static nexrad image?
  • Where is FF for my new AppleWatch?

    By FL_Mike2010
    I am at a loss, it appears Watch App is gone!! They bribg cellular to the watch, and FF decides its time to pull the watch app? Makes no sense...likely new roadmap for FF putting more into other areas ...Seriously questioning whether a renewal is on my roadmap for FF! (ok bit much, but still very dissappointed!!)
