  • Nothing enabled on trial version. 😒 LAME

    By ChilliTrav
    This app seems like it has some potential, but I can’t really sort out whether it’s worth keeping it—much less paying for it. It’s basically a map database with launch sites, LZ’s, webcams, and even thermals marked, as well as a future flyability (forecast) function ...theoretically. The problem is that the trial/free version has too many features disabled to assess it (basically all those I mentioned, plus no topo/terrain maps, satellite maps, etc.). So, unless you do a 7-day trial with automatic subscription renewal unless you cancel, you basically just have the simple map from Google with a bunch of pins in it. For someone with cursory knowledge of local launch sites, the trial version of this app has LESS information than simply going online to look at ParaglindingEarth or government maps and checking weather. So, as one could imagine, I’m DEFINITELY not going to go for a 7-day free trial with automatic subscription renewal just to see if it does anything more useful. I was actually interested in the webcams too, since I wasn’t aware of one of them at a local spot. If dev would do something like temporarily allowing all features of the app without forcing people to do that dumb 7-day automatic renewal thing, I’d say there might be a good thing here. I’ll never know because I’m not interested in getting roped into a subscription just to find out. *Delete*
  • Great app, with great support

    By Tom7567
    It was very useful app for us to pick the right spots when we’ve flown in Austria last week. I also like that the app has a great support as all my questions and minor issues was answered and resolved in 12 hours.
  • Wind speed and temp not working

    By Charge23
    Love this app. I am not a paraglider, but a pilot and I like the clean interface and easy readability for windspeed or temperature. However, these features are not working now.
  • Great app

    By zevz
    One of my go-to apps before heading out to a site.
  • Less than zero!

    By alsjdnendnfjrd
    You can’t unnsubscribe through there app. I keep getting charged monthly! The app is a piece of trash!
  • No password reset with this app.

    By sambonz
    Like one other fellow mentioned, I switched to s new phone and now cannot use the app😞. And there is no way to reset the password. Think I'll try other apps till the bugs are worked out of this one.
  • Lost when moving to new phone

    By mspvt
    Every app I own transferred to my new phone except this one. I was told I'd need to redownload with my original Apple ID or I'd have to repurchase it - I have no idea what that original ID was.
  • Amazing!

    By Goldenloopy
    It's almost freaky how it knows of launches nobody should really know about. What a great tool to find new launches!
  • Great!

    The best way to have Paraglidingearth on the iPhone! Sometimes the icon fly able/non-fly able don't match the text info, so make sure to tap on the icon to see the text data.
  • Check your sites at a glance
