    This is an outstanding EFB! I’m going to let my ForeFlight subscription expire. The synthetic traffic on the latest release is awesome! I hope to soon see the ability to use IFly with Xplane and/or FSX Steam. The ability to the use the app in a sim environment would be great.
  • Easy to use!

    Best moving map GPS software I have ever used! ForeFlight is waaayyyy to complicated to use in flight. This software changed the way I fly for the better!! I highly recommend every pilot use it!
  • 2 things holding back 5 stars.

    Only two things so far that’s holding back 5 stars for me is 1. One button night mode and most important 2. Annotation on plates, and a scratch pad. Works pretty good. Just like having my iPad on my kneeboard but also need somewhere to right directions from ATC.
  • Simple and Works

    Been using the app on iPad as well as iPhone since it was introduced. Just can’t beat the simplicity and ease of use. Set start and finish then rubber band your route wherever you need and waypoints are created as you go. I find that I use it on my phone most of the time as it gives me all the navigation data I really need and is easier to handle in the cockpit. App is packed with features and support and development is outstanding!
  • Like having a copilot

    When paired with an ADS-B system the configurable audio alerts for traffic, airspace, and terrain really make this a stand-out EFB for VFR flying. Without audio alerts one has to essentially include the screen of an EFB in one's scan. With audio the frequency of looking at the screen reduces to whatever is needed to cross-check course. I no longer use my copy of WingX because it is too demanding of my visual attention.

    I use iFlyGPS and find it to have a lot of great features, but the one thing that stands out with that app is the responsiveness of the development team, who are constantly adding to the applicatio as a result of user requests. And customer service that is incredibly responsive...top tier. Comparing the tablet version of iFly to Foreflight may be a bit like a discussion of whether high wing or low wing aircraft are "better." Though iFly's interface is far more personally customizable than Foreflight according to pilots who have used both. Also note broad support for a variety of ADSB-in devices, including Stratux (and including Stratux AHRS, unlike Foreflight's intentionally But where iFly IMO pulls away is that it has versions with identical operating interfaces available on their dedicated standalone mount in the plane GPSs' (three models...very bright screens), iPad, iPhone, Android, and even on a Windows version which includes a compatible full bore flight planner. And I support all four versions with one subscription. I use iFly iPad as a backup for the dedicated iFly 740 we have in the plane, and I love that the interfaces and operation of my backup are exactly identical. I like that the iPad version periodically updates weather and TFRs, etc., in flight any time I fly into cellular reception on my data plan.....all without having to have any ADS-B device linked. I know pilots who use the IOS version of iFly as their primary navigation device. And do very well with it. My two main caveats about that use is (1) that the GPS in iPad and iPhone is not WAAS enabled so not quite as within a few feet precise location and noticeably less precise on altitude and (2) that if it gets hot in the cockpit iPads and iPhones shut down without warning, and can take like 10 worrisome minutes to cool down and restart. But that applies to ANY app in an iPad or iPhone...including every other IOS aviation GPS. The app is free...and thirty days of chart, weather, and software updates are free. After that it will still run, but of course info in it becomes stale and potentially dangerous and deadly.
  • Great product!

    Cost a fraction of what ForeFlight costs and works extremely well. I'm a CFI and love having it loaded on the iPhone.

    App is user friendly, works on iPhone. I test flew Foreflight, and WingX, there is no comparison. Graphics are sharp, flight planning mode is intuitive. I'm sticking with iFly!!
