Virtual reality 3/5
Where can I find information on how to use this feature under the $200 or year plan virtual reality screen?
The absolute best software out there 5/5
By Viper Lead
Not only is ForeFlight the best aviation software out there, this company has the absolute best customer service.
Out of a 5 star rating their a 10
Absolutely perfect! 5/5
Idk why you’d use anything else to fly. And they’re making great improvements as they move on. One additional feature I’d like to see is the 1:50k and 1:100k charts for us low level guys. Customer support is responsive as well. Keep up the good work!
Awful Update 1/5
This update includes an airspace “feature” described as:
“Airspace will be highlighted within +/- 1,000 ft. of your altitude and within 1 nautical mile on either side of your route. Airspace outside of your flight path will be dimmed.”
So basically, class B airspace looks just like any other airspace (dim and virtually invisible lines) unless you either plan a route right thru it or fly within a mile of it.
Which gives me about 12 seconds flying VFR to see it pop up on Foreflight and then turn away from it.
Note to Foreflight designers: stop trying to be so smart. Your job is to provide me the info I need to fly... and you just negated that with random airspace depictions.
At least make crap like this configurable so I can control your errant and absurd design decisions.
One star for turning a functional map into an automated useless piece of junk. Just downloaded Garmin Pilot as they’ve not lost their minds (yet).
(I am commercial sel, ses, mel pilot of 30 years)
The Best 5/5
ForeFlight is awesome. I would not fly without it. While I have. G1000, Sirius WX, and ADS-B weather, the simplicity of using ForeFlight for filing, accessing plates, redundancy (iPad and iPhone), and convenience, is just smart. The cost is inconsequential if you are flying and the return on the investment is well worth the investment.
The search feature bogs down the iPad Pro so much that while typing a route the iPad will miss keystrokes every now and then unless one types slow. Just typing was faster then using search. There has to be a way to turn it off.
Outstanding Support 5/5
By EA500 Pilot
The app itself is indeed excellent, with new updates continuously bringing new valuable features. But what really makes the app shine is the outstanding support. While lack of a phone number to contact may at first seem disappointing, I can assure anyone that if you send a support question via email or their contact form, you always get a response within an amazingly short period of time. I seem to find myself requesting help every 12-18 months or so. And every time I get a quick response, and they stick with me until it’s resolved. ForeFlight support is among the best of any app I’ve experienced!
Use to love it 2/5
By Flying MD
Foreflight use to be one of the best apps out there. However, as they keep adding features the program has become intolerably slow and buggy. Frequent crashing and hang ups on screens at the most inopportune times. Wish there were options to remove all the superfluous features and concentrate on the original. The inability to use jepp charts is also a major problem. Foreflight...... stop the bloat, get rid of the bugs and add some decent support. Good luck trying to get an answer from support.
My best Co-pilot 5/5
ForeFlight became my best friend when I started back in the air after 20+ years. Amazing. Now it makes me look like a genius in all aspects-briefing-approaches-weather-routes-filing....you name it. And on top of that, [email protected]
is all over any request with the needed answers or advice. Thank you ForeFlight, I do not fly without you. Mac, CMEL.
Great app to use 5/5
I have one problem when I plan a flight that is 240nm how is that a short flight and I get an error saying it a short flight
Fast search is anything but fast 3/5
By Av8r Popps
With the addition of “fast search” FF just became extremely slow and not very user friendly. In rare cases it would be helpful to see available choices but there needs to be a work around too.
If you want to type out an IFR clearance in the Maps tab the continuously updating search function makes it impossible to type out a route, your keypad inputs are skipped while the search is running. Even copy/paste seems impacted and rarely works from an outside app or email. When receiving a PDC clearance or a filed flight plan route via email there has to be a way to ‘import’ a route with a quick copy/paste. Unfortunately the FLP edit tab doesn’t allow a workaround for copy/paste either.
There either needs to be a setting to turn off fast search or it has to go away altogether.
Current version is infuriating 2/5
By Herman the Kid
The app has always worked well until this last update with the active search for previous flight plans constantly gumming up the keyboard entries. I can’t tell you how many times in the last few weeks I’ve had to rewrite the entire route due to missed letters and numbers. You used to be able to just search previous routes as a separate function, but now it’s rammed down your throat and forces you to either tp le hs or t y p e l i k e t h i s to I put your route. The annoying and entirely pointless feature needs to be reverted to the old, separate search. Don’t think to yourself “this asshat must be using an iPhone 3GS to get such crappy lags!” No, I’m using an iPhone X, and this crap is ridiculous.
ForeFlight is THE BEST APP
I don’t fly without ForeFlight
It’s worth the money
If you’re thinking about buying it, don’t have to think twice. It’s money well spent !!!
Keep it up ForeFlight Team, you guys rock !!!
By Performance Plus User
I have used ForeFlight for several years flying mostly a Cessna 414. I am in the process of upgrading to a Conquest II and have moved to the performance plus module. I really enjoy everything it has to offer. Great tool and some of the best customer support I have had the pleasure to work with.
Excellent for flight training 5/5
Helped so much for my PPL a and even more so for instrument flights. Be careful not to use as a crutch
A great start but hold on to your Garmin! 3/5
Foreflight is the best of the iPad apps, but still not the full service go-to navigation device. I'll up my rating to 5* when bread crumbing is added so that a pilot can find his way out of a canyon when the weather closes in. This is a valuable safety feature and found on Garmin. Foreflight has been promising it for years but never delivers. They think logbook enhancements are more important than safety if flight items!
Great App and They Listen To Issues 5/5
I like ForeFlight and use it all the time. I found an issue with the app and the ForeFlight team listened and made changes in a future update. I love that they keep adding new features.
Customer support is awesome 5/5
Thank you Josh C, above and beyond customer service
Pilot (GA) 5/5
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 3/5
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
Outstanding application 5/5
By John 1WB
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.
Foreflight: Essential and best value in all of aviation! 5/5
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.
Can’t buy 3/5
I want to subscribe. But I can’t
Because of Some error message
No split screen support 1/5
Going on almost 3 years since Apple implemented split screen, yet it's still not supported by ForeFlight.
Senior Captain 5/5
User friendly and the customer support is very willing to help and responds to your questions in a very timely fashion.
When Electronic Flight Bags become Good Tool Bags 4/5
By Shado Guy
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)*.
Just installed 9.5 update...app was removed and no longer on my Apple Watch?
Support responded they are working on an updated Apple Watch app
Got to say....I really appreciate how quickly ForeFlight has responded to the Apple watch app replacement.
The reason I own an iPad is for this app 5/5
This is hands down the best EFB for pilots in the U.S. It has a simple interface, excellent feature set, and provides almost all of the information you could possibly want directly on the map.
It’s updated quickly for new iOS releases, has native iPhone X support, and has a quick pace of feature enhancements throughout the year that makes you feel like you’re getting something for your money.
If I had one complaint, it would be that they’re trying to charge more for aircraft climb and descent profiles. Other EFBs have this functionality built-in.
Overall, easily a 5-star app.
Great update, what happened to watch app? 4/5
Love the app but why the removal of the Apple Watch app? Would be happy to change to a 5 star if someone could respond! Thx!
Adding second IPad 5/5
Jeb was great and walked me thru adding my second IPad to ForeFlight Pro. Great app and would recommend it to VFR and IFR Pilots out there that can always use the extra info. Thanks Marc
Weather bugs go unfixed, Apple Watch Deleted 2/5
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. 5/5
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 1/5
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.
Won’t download in background. 3/5
By Chug The First
Please make your next update include background downloads.
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!
Bad update 2/5
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
Apple watch?!?!? 5/5
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? 2/5
By LUH DES Pilot
This app does NOT work with the New Apple Watch...how can this be?
Disappointed in the iPhone app 3/5
By iPad Paul
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? 3/5
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!!)
Rapidly becoming Bloatware 1/5
By Ed F., Philadelphia
Foreflight keeps adding features without making sure the app runs correctly on older devices. As a result, it no longer runs correctly on my iPad 2.
If you are going to hitch your wagon to this horse, be prepared to buy a new iPad every few years.
Simply Amazing 5/5
Changed the way I fly since it was first released. What happened to the WatchOS app though? It doesn’t show up on my App Store...
Keeping up with iOS 1/5
FF is now 4 iOS upgrades behind and I’m losing faith that they will ever catch up. I haven’t received an “all clear” since October 31. I use my iPad and iPhone for other apps that depend or improve with these latest iOS changes. I consider complaints such as not being able to read VOR frequencies on the aero map trivial compared to not being able to upgrade my iOS.
303JW (Robert Rubey) 5/5
ForeFlight is an incredible tool. I fly 400 - 500 hours a year. Currently fly a PA46-500-TP. ForeFlight helps to make me incredibly efficient and safe. I know the developers care deeply about their product and do everything they do to keep it running across multiple platforms.
I hope they make a bundle when they eventually monetize.
Jepp capability is awesome 5/5
By Bombardier Pilot
For Jepp-only users, a Setting to not display (or offer for download) Gov't terminal charts (Gov't approach plates) would be useful.
Not Apple Watch Compatible 3/5
Why does the application no longer offer Apple Watch comparability?
Great Product and Support 5/5
By Ryan Klavan
The update is fantastic and brings a whole new meaning to iPhone EFB’s. Everything is where it is on the iPad application. ForeFlight takes serious pride in their reviews. I had an issue and the CEO emailed me the next day. Yeah it’s a little more expensive than other EFB’s, but you get what you pay for.
New update is unbelievable!!! 5/5
For flight is now universal across all platforms way easier to use. I particularly like how much easier it is to file my flight plans flights select file activate done!! You guys nailed it. Still like to see a timer for IFR flying.
Can’t click on airports within VFR charts 5/5
The new update won’t let me click on airport icons and view the menu with frequencies METERS and other information within VFR charts. Only way to view that information is to go to the airports tab at the bottom. I can still click on TFRs and airways within the VFR chart. This issue is on both iPad and iPhone devices. Love this app, but update broke or took away a great feature.
Update: The update seemed to turn off my custom setting to show airports on the VFR map. Was able to change setting on both devices.
Great update! 4/5
The new update for the iPhone is much needed and makes navigation very intuitive. Great work!
