iPhone X support 3/5
Need to support the larger screen size of iPhone X. It doesn’t fill up the entire screen! Hopefully you update it soon!

IPhone X support? 4/5
Great app. Not updated for the new iPhone X yet. And an idea is to make a perfectly dark color mode to take advantages of the oled and save battery. Appreciate what you guys are doing. Thanks.
Good, but not compatible enough 3/5
By Fadi - Great app!
Great app, but doesn’t support AHRS from my Stratux ADS-B. There are other great EFBs out there that are more compatible with different ADS-B units like Stratux, and have almost all the features of ForeFlight (including AHRS display), and a bit cheaper.
If ForeFlight starts supporting AHRS from my Stratux box, I would renew my subscription with them (I’d be willing to pay the extra $$ for such a great app).
One of the nice features ForeFlight has is the integration with Jeppesen charts.
PLEASE add AHRS support for Stratux! :)
Great app. Please update for iPhone X 4/5
Great app. iPhone X support would be 5 stars.
This is the best customer support ever 5/5
Barry knew I was local and took the time to sit with me and explain the ins and outs of logbook. who would not have an app like this when customer support comes to you. I highly recommend foreflight.
Excellent support 5/5
I recently renewed my subscription after a few year hiatus from flying, during which I acquired a couple of new devices. I had a few quirks in getting the user data to synchronize between devices and the ForeFlight support team was incredibly responsive and helpful. Definitely the best software/app support experience I have had in many years.
No split screen or iPhone X support 1/5
Going on almost 3 years since Apple implemented split screen, yet it's still not supported by ForeFlight.
Also does not support iPhone X. If you paid $1,200 for this phone you’ll be disappointed to find out the ForeFlight is iPhone 7 sized with big black margins along the top and bottom.
Terrible flight program 1/5
This use to be one of the best programs available. Not anymore! Now with the last update is complicated, inefficient, difficult and problematic to even use when filling a IFR flight plan. Now it’s faster to call flight service than to file a IFR flight plan. Very disappointing and wish I could get a refund.
Keeps on getting “ADS-B Disconnected” error with Stratus 1/5
Two flights in and this error happened about 20 times per flight. It disconnects not just ADS-B as per the message but GPS as well, I could be in the middle of a landing approach and it does this and lose situational awareness as I lose my position on the map. This is supposed to help with situational awareness, very distracting and makes ForeFlight worthless. I even got ForeFlight just for Synthetic Vision and paid extra for it. Get your act together ForeFlight. I am on latest 9.4.3, iOS 11.0.3 on iPad 4 Mini.
Check the search bar on the iPhone. It’s not looking properly since iOS 11
ForeFlight gets better and better 5/5
Just when I think that ForeFlight can’t improve, the team finds a way to prove me wrong. They are responsive and gracious. I am so impressed with their attitude and willingness to listen to all reports, not just the positive thoughts. Great job, Team ForeFlight.
You people are awesome...not only is ForeFlight an excelent navigational software, but I have yet to find a customer support group on ANY software as responsive in such a short time as you folks. I sent a question with a downloads issue at 10:40 pm and had the response at 7:00 am next day...
I don't know why anyone would want to use any other software.
No type of free account 4/5
There are a few things that are free in other apps that would be nice and not be too hard to implement in a limited version for free, such as airport data and the speed and altitude tapes (I mean the tapes only use internal device sensors) and maybe some other stuff. Then a person is more inclined to at least get the 3 month subscription when they want, vs just deleting the app and using multiple different free apps in its place.
Bad Elf GPS 3/5
After the last update, my lightning Bad Elf GPS won't work on ForeFlight. It does work on the other apps.
Incredible tool 5/5
By Jim from Wellesley
High functionality, easy to use, multiple features......simply indispensable. It’s like having a G1000 in your pocket to walk around with on the ground and as a supplement to your glass cockpit while flying.
Foreflight: ruining an app one update at a time 2/5
This is the worst update foreflight has ever made. They took something so streamlined, quick, and easy as flight planning and made it cumbersome and ungainly. It's no longer simple to make a few little changes and see how it affects the flight. You have to load and create performance profiles. It's like they never even considered you might fly a different speed or TAS at different altitudes. Not to mention not everyone wants to waste time with creating a whole new profile when you just want to see how changing one number changes the flight. AND not everyone only flies one airplane! These last two updates ruined the best thing about foreflight. Now they've also ruined your map screen. All the colors have shifted and seem to be permanently stuck on night mode. No setting will change it back. Now you can barely read TAFs and metars in the daylight. On top of everything else the app crashes at least once a flight now, and if it doesn't crash you have to restart it any time it loses communication with your ADS-B unit because it won't reconnect or show any data or even the device unless you restart the app. Talk about going backwards.
Game changer 5/5
Foreflight is the game changer in General aviation for this century. Not since Elrey Jeppesen started charting has anyone done as much for us in aviation. I knew it when I first subscribed back in the beginning and continue to be amazed at the features and usability of the app. I am an airline pilot as well as an avid GA pilot and instructor. I feel just as, if not better, equipped when flying my Champ using ForeFlight as I do flying the 737 with a large dispatch system supporting me.
Thanks guys and keep up the good work.
Terrific App 5/5
Switched to Foreflight this year from Jepp FD after researching numerous alternatives. Best EFB available. I use it on two iPads and my iphone. Support team has dealt with questions/issues promptly and professionally.
I mean, I simply cannot fly without ForeFlight!
Best EFB 5/5
Love the app and the updates & improvements they keep rolling out.
Update of my opinion 1/5
All you need to know comes from their own emails to users. They no longer care about the integrity of their product. Your question is not if Foreflight will let you down, but WHEN.
I constantly get emails from these folks I flushed 3 years ago promising NEVER to load their APP again! So, you spam my mailbox dear Foreflight and the review gets updated. Just remember folks, this program blew up my iPad where I had to completely restore it from a backup. Their #1 solution, give us unlimited access to your iPad so we can see what YOU did wrong. Their #2 solution was to reload the entire iPad. Did that without their trash ever being used again. If you think I will ever pay these folks another dime, you are delusional.
Best aviation app out there. 5/5
The capabilities and customer support of Foreflight are second to none. This app has defined the industry standard for general aviation.
Unequaled Customer Support 5/5
Time for another update. Just got an immediate, expert response from Robin on the ForeFlight Pilot Support Team to a user error on my part. Just can't say enough good things about ForeFlight's Customer Service.
******* Update to Apr 12 review *******
I just got off the phone with Josh at ForeFlight. Josh helped work through a particularly difficult problem I was having on ForeFlight for iPhone. After spending about 30 minutes talking with me, including resolving an unrelated issue I was having, Josh answered all my additional questions and resolved both problems perfectly.
Josh was cordial, professional, and an obvious expert in his field. I could not have been more pleased.
******* End update Apr 12 review *******
I am a CFII/MEI in Austin, Texas. I've been using ForeFlight for a couple of months now, and as a Flight Instructor it is my responsibility to be able to demonstrate all resources at my disposal to my flight students. Having looked at several hardware and software solutions before purchasing anything, I now consider my iPad Pro Mini (ForeFlight's suggestion) and ForeFlight Pro Plus to be the gold standard of EFB solutions.
I have also been keeping the ForeFlight Customer Support Team extremely busy, because I ask a lot of questions. Their responses have always been prompt, courteous, and correct without exception. In my opinion, there is nothing more you can ask of a customer support operation.
Just an update on 9.0.1. Great upgrade. Nice additional features and touches. "Nearest" distance-ring feature is indispensable.
IOS only 1/5
By Buddy McClelland
This product is only available for IOS. So if you ever upgrade to a better tablet/phone this product is sadly not compatible. It would be a solid 4 in my books if I was able to run this app on better operating systems.
Jepp capability is awesome 5/5
By Bombardier Pilot
The ability to 'swipe' through (from one to the next) plates in a Binder would be helpful.
For Jepp-only users, a Setting to not show or offer for download Gov't terminal charts (Gov't approach plates) would be useful too.
Eclipse surprise! 5/5
By Cessna 180 caretaker
I e-mailed ForeFlight support a couple of weeks ago about seeing the eclipse track on the ForeFlight Map page, and the response I got was excellent! They sent me a file I could load onto the map page and see the eclipse route, centerline, and times of passage. I flew about two hours and got under the eclipse path, and watched, with my passengers, as the shadow passed overhead; the data was perfect! I really appreciate the quick and customized response to my inquiry!
Great EFB 4/5
By David Dollar
Really love this software. Had a few misfires with support not reading my question when a feature wasn't working but did eventually get a resolution.
Honestly, look no further. If you are a pilot or trying to be one, this app is a must
Excellent support 5/5
I am a new user and a bit unusual in that I fly in Kenya. I found the world aeronautical chart and Africa terrain excellent and only wish that they had more airports in their database and included the elevation heights on hills and mountains. Based on my experience, I am switching over from Garmin Pilot, although I also still use Sky Demon, especially because of its large database of airports in Kenya. I had a few questions for technical support and always received a prompt response. In one instance, they corrected my draft Excel spreadsheet of flights so that it could be imported into Logbook. The technical team went out of its way to give me excellent support. Overall the program is terrific and the support outstanding. My only complaint is that the so-called free 30-trial version is so limited in its capabilities.
Email Support?? Apple Pencil? 4/5
Update: Issue resolved after 3 days of chain emails. Also, Apple Pencil compatibility is not optimized well with the sketch pad.
For the prices of these subscriptions, there should at least be an instant chat support during business hours instead of email support. I feel like I'm being put on the back burner whenever I have a tech support issue/question that I have to send per email and wait for a response.
I emailed support about merging an account and I got only one email back that did not satisfy my issue. Thank God the app works good for now because I'm not too confident in the support aspect of ForeFlight.
An update that did NOTHING... 1/5
Rarely do companies release an update that moves a product backwards. The new foreflight 8 provides little to no progress if any at all. The company has discussed for a long time their improved version 8 feature set however other than the aeronautical apps which are IMHO a less useful version of Jepps VFR/GPS maps, there appears to be little change.
This all said, the most frustrating aspect is the customer service experience and their inability to implement feature requests. While they reply quickly to emails, their "experienced" technical team always provides the same answer that the feature request will be discussed.
I realize that my specific requests are not the benchmark for change, though to release a new version with no apparent change and years of change requests by thousands of pilots, it seems that foreflight is content with simply being a media manager vs a ground breaker in the industry.
I highly suggest looking at other options such as Aerovie prior to spending your money on foreflight until the company can recage and do what they did in their inception vs the stagnicity they demonstrated with their latest release.
Best aviation app ever 5/5
Best app. So intuitive and easy to use. I have an SR22 and barely use the built in maps of the airplanes avionics
The Best. 5/5
All you need is a pilot certificate and a foreflight subscription.
Maybe an stratus 2s too.
Great app, great tool.
New flight plan tool is a step backwards 4/5
I love the app but the new update with the flight plan tool is a degradation in utility. Before, we could adjust our fuel burn and TAS on the left windows. Now you have to edit individual aircraft. I fly any one of 200 different side numbers depending on aircraft issue. Having to have a profile on all of them is a real pain. This then translates to filing with ForeFlight, which, after creating an aircraft profile, is a real joy. It would be highly beneficial to other pilots that fly multiple side numbers and transparent to pilots that only fly one if foreflight implemented adjustments to parameters and had the call sign as an independent variable, not the file name to organize all the other data.
Performance+ question 5/5
Happy user here.
Upgraded today to Performance+, and can't find instructions to load my new profile or how to use it?
I hesitate to think I'm wasting my money?
ForeFlight will not open on iPad 1/5
The application was deleted with the idea that a new copy would to be download. However when going to the Apple store the option to download a new copy was not available. So now we are in the position of not having any ForeFlight capability at all.
Great app but.. 1/5
Great app but I need a way to turn location services to the only while using mode instead of always on.
Can't have two iPhones on same subscription?!? 1/5
Simple problem, identified with company two months ago. Still unsolved. We own a plane, we have a ForeFlight account. We have one iPad we fly with and we each have an iPhone. While ForeFlight will allow one iPhone and two iPads to be registered to one subscription, they are unable to accommodate one iPad and two iPhones.
Greed or incompetence? You be the judge.
App won't even open 1/5
Suddenly this app won't open. I'm running it on an iPad Pro. I restarted several times and closed everything.
Poor Support 1/5
Good luck getting support. No phone support and they keep sending you the same email over and over. Looks like they are not even reading what the real problem is. Finally cleared approach plate issue only to find IFR low and high chart coverage was incomplete. Numerous emails with no response.
App is great, but is fully with bugs! 1/5
By Vadim Peskov
I love the app, but logbook have a bugs in plane section and report section.
See a support response below:
//This is a known issue that we are working to address. While I cannot provide a timeline as to when this will be corrected, I can say that we are aware of the issue.
I this this is not a great support at all!!!! They need to fix this bug.
The App Pilots Depend On?) I do not trust this slogan and this team.
Best app ever. Makes a pilots life better.
ForeFlight just keeps getting better 5/5
By The Mackays
I've been a user now for the past two years and so glad I made the switch. I just email support about providing a layer for chasing the 2017 American Eclipse and they got back to me in about 10 minutes with a solution that was already built in.
Really appreciate the user and pilot friendly features that make this a must have for your cockpit!
ICAO Setup 5/5
ForeFlight offers an invaluable service to its subscribers through its Pilot Support Team. They helped me by bringing up my ForeFlight account and assisted with setup of the soon to be implemented ICAO flight plan format codes according to my current aircraft equipment. There are many other areas where support is available enhancing this already great application for pilots!
Use case-driven, fabulous 5/5
Its authorship by pilots who are software developers has meant superlative focus on software that facilitates the way pilots think and flow. This has remained true even while the software's capability has grown. Lots of features but they all fit together really well so they're easy to use while airborne where it counts.
The only annoying thing to me is the beginning splash screen takes an eternity.
Would love something visual some day to represent NOTAMs.
Customer Service 2/5
Difficult to find or get answers. We have the orginal iPad, version 2 using Stratus. Recently the software started doing resets on its own. Restarting in flight and going back to a starting point. No we have overheating of the iPad shutdowns, and are barely able to keep two functioining. Our problems might be the iPad (old) or the software, which is up-to-date. We were about to commit completely to flying with iPads and rebuilding our airplane around their equipment, but alas nobody talks to us.
Best EFB 5/5
Im discovering new tools everyday, quick tools that can make navigating simple, I suggest to any new users to actually read the manual as best as you can but to play with it on the ground, even experienced users probably don't know every detail and tricks.
Excellent Service 5/5
Love the product! Love the customer service!!!
Excellent customer service 5/5
I have had a flawless experience with this app and my flight time has been greatly improved while using it. I had a question about some of the features and the customer service team was not only really quick to respond but also friendly and personable to communicate with.
