I am an instructor and I use several of these types of Apps. In my opinion, Foreflight is the best, easiest to use, full featured, and they provide great support. Every time I have had a question, their support team answers my questions quickly. I hope the Garmin acquisition doesn’t change any of the above...

I love this app, you can do so much with it. My only complain is that they need an Apple Watch extension again, least for METAR and stuff. I’m a student pilot so I can’t afford the other versions past 99 but keep doing great work!
KA7MMF's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 9/17/18 3:44 PM
I have been using ForeFlight for about 8 years! Excellent platform? At least it used to be. But as large companies get bigger they lose sight of some of the conveniences. I would like to think I helped our company go to ForeFlight for EFB,s, simple easy, but Now days it is gotten so convoluted in its evolution, it often crashes and takes longer to use. Some of this is our company’s fault for not keeping the iPads updated with the latest iOS. still I often wonder when you have a perfect platform and everything is working great why mess with it! It’s lost its quickness, now every time you press a letter you got a wait for the iPad to finish it search before you compress the next one. Most of it crashes I have seen are on the weight and balance. As a pilot I don’t have the option of updating the iPads to the latest iOS. Doesn’t do me any good to send in a crash report for the aircraft I am no longer working on the iPad stay with the aircraft

Aeromot's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/29/18 8:32 PM
After subscribing for three years, I decided to let it Foreflight go. My preferred EFB app is Garmin Pilot, which is my go-to app for planning and in flight. It offers every feature that I find useful in Foreflight but is more intuitive for me. I also continue to subscribe to FlyQ, which is the simplest EFB app to learn and use, in my opinion. Finally, I also use FltPlan Go, which isn’t as slick as the others (though now that Garmin bought it, who knows?) but is FREE and even includes features, such as geo-referenced approach plates, that you have to pay extra for in Foreflight.
Spiralwings's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/29/18 5:25 AM
I've been using Foreflight since 2007 when it was a web app on the then brand new iPhone. It is without a doubt the best and most useful app I own. When I'm working (commercial helicopter pilot) I use it every day to check wx, TFR's etc. and whenever I'm doing an xc flight I use the maps, and airport info for freqs and fbos. With each new release they improve upon an already stellar product and their support is second to none. Every time I've emailed about a question or an issue I have received a personal response within a few hours. Foreflight has changed aviation for the better. Keep up the good work!

I am forced to no longer pay for Foreflight because i can no longer deal with the sketchiness of Apple devices. I’ve never owned an Apple device that didn’t have catastrophic failures, and i no longer trust them in flight. It’s a shame that Foreflight is dedicated to only Apple and unavailable on Android devices.

I was having some difficulty getting the ICAO settings on my mobile device correct, and called the helpline. Josh C. was the technician who helped straighten out all of the settings on my portable device that were causing problems. Extremely knowledgeable, portrays a very friendly and helpful attitude over the phone, and got me fixed in no time at all. Thanks again for the good work that all of you do. Because he was so helpful, I will overlook his propensity to cheer for the guys wearing burnt orange.

Everything you want in an aviation app and more. I have absolutely nothing to complain about with any part of the app
Gheezi's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
Personal opinion, ForeFlight should have a CFI package like WingX who provides it for free to active flight instructors. Or even a discounted version would be awesome. Top reason for writing my review is because the customer service that ForeFlight provides is fantastic. In a timely manner my issues were resolved and questions answered. They are great with getting back to you, whether that’s through social media or direct email to their customer service personnel. Also the fact that they added the documents section for iPhone now made a big impact on me liking the app. My only pet peeve overall is that I can’t view Winds/Temps Data for specific stations. From what I’ve seen the information is interpolated. Although I don’t think the information is inaccurate, it does seem reliable. I would like to know the data issued for the specific stations. I have cross checked ForeFlight and AviationWeather.GOV, there is a slight difference. As a CFII, I use this data to teach pilots how to interpolate themselves the winds aloft for their flight planning.

Thanks to Albert and his quick response he explained how I had not selected all the states to be up dated that was the root cause of my problem. If I had use the pack feature it would have insured that all the information concerned on that flight path would be up dated....he also took time to explain why the Stratus / Sentry makes sense as a back up attitude indicator in the cockpit...He was a big help In resolving my issue along with all the good information .....Can’t thank him enough.

I've been a Foreflight subscriber for many years. It's been a good experience for the most part, but I'm tired of new gimmicks that don't work and ones that are begging me for more money. I had the pro-plus plan since it was one of the "premium" plans, but now they are just adding more features that don't work, more buttons to clutter the screen that try to get me to spend more money. I will not, the app isn't reliable enough to keep throwing money at it.
Jour J. Events's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
Dear ForeFlight, As much as I enjoy your app, I have to say that the logbook section could be more user friendly. For example, when I get my instructor to sign there is no way to just delete the signature and make a change to my entry. I have to delete the entire entry and it is very annoying. I actually started using “MyFlightbook” because they have that option to just delete a signature and make whatever change then request signatures again. I have a new pilot and I like the digital logbook but yours could be improved. Thank you
diveandskate's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
I’m a long-time Foreflight user and have seen many updates and changes over the years. At this time I feel the need to re-write my 5-star review to reflect concerns about the app’s stability and direction. Specifically during the past 6 weeks after updating to the latest versions I’ve experienced multiple app crashes during a critical phase of flight. This often occurs while entering an amended route from ATC while flying single-pilot in IMC. I continue to work with the Foreflight Team (who acknowledges the ongoing issue) by sending in data dumps from my device (iPad Pro) yet the problem persists. While I understand and accept the app’s “advisory only” nature it still should not be a distraction. Now with today’s new multi-page required “User Agreement” I simply feel that Foreflight has lost its direction. In conflict with statements on the company “faq” page the new User agreement no longer authorizes the simultaneous use of an iPad and iPhone in the cockpit. It specifically states “...Individual Subscription provides you the right to use the applicable portion of the Service for one year from the date of purchase on one iPad, one iPhone, or one iPod Touch that you own or control. An Individual Subscription also allows the subscriber to use the applicable portion of the Service on an additional iPad only as a back-up device.” If this is not their intention then the User Agreement should be changed to reflect the actual policy. I am hopeful that the company and the app build on their past successes. The earlier versions worked so well to reliably provide the necessities of an EFB. I would encourage the Team to stabilize the basic functionality before adding more features. Until that time my rating will remain neutral at 3-stars.

ForeFlight has an automatic renewal of your subscription (even if you are not using the app) and the policy that offers zero refunds. So, if you are doing something else and not notice they will renew your one year subscription.
Flydogfly's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
I love the app but am relatively new to it. I mistakenly deleted a bunch of logbook entries (with instructor signatures) recently. Sent the ForeFlight team an email and they restored my book back to before my entries were gone! Totally made my day. Thanks ForeFlight!
KoleDrake24's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
ForeFlight is an excellent tool for flight planning, weather analysis, and everything in-between. However, there are two glaring issues I have with the application, especially when compared to the competitors (primarily Garmin Pilot). To start off, the screen frame-rate is capped at either 24 or 30 FPS. The app feels laggy due to this. This is especially upsetting if you have the latest Apple devices (such as the iPhone XS and especially the iPad Pro) that can do 60 FPS and 60+ FPS respectively. Secondly, the map resolution could be sharper, and isn’t optimized for particular devices. The sectional (or zoomed out En-route IFR chart) view is pixelated on my iPhone XS and does not sharpen up until it becomes a TAC. Even then, the map isn’t as sharp as it is on Garmin Pilot. Updating these two features would be excellent for me, and would change my 3-star review to a 5-star review. For $100 or more to purchase this app, things like this should be worked in.

Lavish_'s Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
First of all, thanks for quickly updating us regularly to know if we should update to the new iOS firmware or not. I have a BIG suggestion, I feel like it should not be that easy to delete a logged flight in the logbook section without a confirmation question asking if we are sure the deletion was intentional. I love the slide to delete feature but I think it should come with a confirmation question afterwards. Perhaps a toggle in settings to turn deletion confirmations on and off would be good. Also, Apple Pencil support is not that great. The scratch pad needs major improvements because it seems like it has a “string like” writing effect when writing fast. Please make the scratch pad writing more fluid.

BMC2430's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
The latest update, 11.0.1, is asking me to pony up another $100 bucks a year to add 3D airport view to my existing subscription. I’m already paying an extra $100 so that my Stratus 2S receiver will display an artificial horizon and terrain warning. I don’t need jet fuel pricing and international route planning for my Cessna 152 and Super Decathlon. And since I can see an airport in 3D on Google Earth, I don’t think I need to pay you more for that feature. Great app but only 3 stars because of your pricing structure that hoses non-professional pilots into having to pay for what they don’t need in order to get the few features they do want and do use.
BrooksW1989's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
I’ve been an avid ForeFlight user for about 3 years now. I’ve used it on deployment, at home, and as a flight instructor for the military’s newest Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard aviators. Without a doubt, I can say this product has made me a better aviator and flight instructor. Between the situational awareness the product provides, the ability to see and plan for weather, or just being able to flex when your fly goes awry, Foreflight has consistently given me piece of mind. At this point, I pretty much consider it essential equipment every time I strap into the aircraft.
lukeryy's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
ForeFlight is a great tool for any pilot who needs/wants assistance with navigation or flight planning. As a flight student at Riddle, it is a very valuable resource. One of my favorite features was the document feature, where you can download .pdf’s, powerpoints, pictures, and other documents and organize them into folders. This was very useful for studying for checkrides, but with a recent update ForeFlight deleted every single one of my bookmarks for every textbook, FAR, or any other document. This is a huge detriment to me, due to the fact I am taking a check ride next week, and would like the bookmarked pages I had for backup. Now I have to go back and re-bookmark everything which is very frustrating. Please fix, if this happens in the future then I will find a different app to satisfy flight planning needs Edit: Another thing that would be incredibly helpful, if possible I would love to have the option to enlarge my navlog when operating/planning a flight plan. It’s frustrating to have to squint my eyes to see waypoints on the tiny navlog at the top of the screen.
IFR-Pilot's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 8/28/19 1:42 PM
We fly 12 to 18 hours per week with ForeFlight and Stratus 2. ForeFlight has come along way since it’s introduction with synthetic vision, excellent integration with Stratus and so much more. I did get concerned with the previous version as we started having multiple crashes on two different newer iPads daily. We do load multiple waypoint and it seemed like that might have been a factor? I always make sure my iPad has plenty of open SSD space and the newer iPads have 2GB or more RAM, so I wonder if the software rolled out too fast? We’re also very careful about not updating the OS until the all clear is given. I just hope ForeFlight’s team slows down a little on all the bells and whistles. It’s much more crucial for the product to work flawlessly versus having 3D views of airports / etc. All in all ForeFlight is the BEST aviation App on the market and their team is obviously awesome at coding. My concerns and comments here about previous crashes are only because we’re addicted to ForeFlight and never want to see it burdened with issues. The new version seems to be more stable with only the rare crash. It does open back up in seconds right were you left off. Keep up the good work. Thanks ForeFlight!

diveandskate's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 7/24/18 6:42 PM
I’m a long-time Foreflight user and have seen many updates and changes over the years but... I wanted to give the team props on the new feature where traffic is displayed on the heads-up (SV) screen. I don’t frequently use the synthetic vision display except in areas of high terrain but on a trip to Denver this week I checked out that feature thoroughly (traffic display on SV). It was quite accurate in the depiction of traffic location with respect to aircraft flying around me. It was pretty cool how I was able to reference a lake or other feature to more-easily spot planes below me. And with the on-screen targets growing larger as they get closer it gives you a great perspective of how serious the threat actually is. Good job guys! I’ve been ADS-B compliant since January 2014 and have enjoyed traffic depictions for several years now. I understand the importance of looking outside the cockpit but I’m certain that the Foreflight traffic display does enhance safety. I’ll likely use “synthetic vision” more now, particularly in areas of high traffic concentration.

Packed with features, easy to use, intuitive. ForeFlight training videos and support documents are top notch. Short, to the point, professionally rendered. Found a small typo on a checklist and submitted a correction. Tech Support responded within minutes. Haven’t found the ‘logbook’ useful. Recently released 360° virtual view is way cool.

There are lots of products out there that make all kinds of amazing promises. Some deliver. Most fall short. ForeFlight however exceeds my expectations. Anyone who has ever used it realizes it is the gold standard in flight planning but the customer service just set the bar higher. I was trying to file an instrument flight plan in unfamiliar, complicated airspace and kept getting an error message. After several attempts, I called the flight plan in on the phone unsure of why I couldn’t get the flight filed through ForeFlight. Not long after, ForeFlight Pilot Support emailed me! The email said we noticed you were having a problem and wanted to know how they could help. They are big enough to provide the best product in a crowded market and small enough to offer unsolicited help when some idiot is trying to file a flight plan with a departure procedure in the “enroute” field instead of the remarks section. If you don’t have ForeFlight the buy it. You’ll be glad you made the investment.

What is the point if the free trial if the application you receive is unusable? A friend recommended the app to me, so I though I’ll give it a try. To test if ForeFlight is right for you, you want to test it in flight, right? And you need charts while flying. BUT this is exactly what you have no access to - the offline charts! Thanks for the most dangerously misleading trial offer on the AppleStore! I’m glad I noticed that the CA charts didn't actually download before heading to my tomorrows 500NM flight! With you misleading offer you put peoples life into danger! Shame! Two stars because other people say it is useful for them. Unable to verify this myself so far.

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.

FOREFLIGHT is the only flight planning software! It has changed aviation forever!
ss1007's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 6/2/18 12:45 PM
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 c*** 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)

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!
Drunkin'Swmer's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 5/30/18 3:58 PM
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.

DESteiner's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 5/27/18 1:47 AM
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.
EA500 Pilot's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 5/24/18 10:24 PM
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!
Flying MD's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 5/20/18 8:21 AM
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.

Flyfloats's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 5/2/18 3:52 PM
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!

Av8r Popps's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 5/16/18 12:56 PM
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.
Herman the Kid's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 5/16/18 12:17 PM
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 a***** must be using an iPhone 3GS to get such c***** lags!” No, I’m using an iPhone X, and this c*** is ridiculous.

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
John 1WB's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 4/8/18 2:22 PM
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.

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)*.

Visth's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 3/30/18 1:12 AM
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.

PilotTim's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 2/6/18 2:38 PM
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.
ericandi's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 2/14/18 7:02 AM
Started out using Garmin Pilot because it came free with my private pilot course thru Cessna. Garmin Pilot is Greta but ForeFlight is outstanding. Amazing app! I love the fact that I can plan a flight in the app including a recorded briefing so I no longer have to use a 3rd party source like DUATS or FLTPLAN.com. One feature that is missing is the ability to manually change the visibility of map icons based on the map range. Garmin Pilot has this setting. ForeFlight does it automatically but I can’t customize the settings. So for example when my map range is at 20 miles, if I only want to see large airports and class B airspace but not smaller airports and other airspace, I can’t customize this setting in ForeFlight. And if my map range is at 2 miles, I want to see all airports and airspaces, I can’t customize this setting. Garmin Pilot has a lot more customer settings for map layer visibility based on the selected map range. Other that this issue, ForeFlight is superior to Garmin Pilot in every other way.

iPad Paul's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 12/27/17 5:22 AM
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?

lukeryy's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 12/12/18 11:05 AM
ForeFlight is a great tool for any pilot who needs/wants assistance with navigation or flight planning. As a flight student at Riddle, it is a very valuable resource. One of my favorite features was the document feature, where you can download .pdf’s, powerpoints, pictures, and other documents and organize them into folders. This was very useful for studying for checkrides, but with a recent update ForeFlight deleted every single one of my bookmarks for every textbook, FAR, or any other document. This is a huge detriment to me, due to the fact I am taking a check ride next week, and would like the bookmarked pages I had for backup. Now I have to go back and re-bookmark everything which is very frustrating. Please fix, if this happens in the future then I will find a different app to satisfy flight planning needs

Ryan Klavan's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 12/10/17 4:52 AM
I have been using FF since they started and have been satisfied through the years. Just within the last year or so, prices have been hiked up for practically an application that does the same exact thing it did before an update. ForeFlight is one of the highest charging EFB’s on the market for the features it provides. It’s funny, my old $150 subscription went into R&D for features that they are ending up charging you for again. Long story short, they have a great developers, but to the senior management team.... YOU’RE FIRED! With an all Garmin panel, the easy alternative is to move on to other alternatives....cough cough Garmin Pilot for $50 less that does the same exact thing if not better. If ForeFlight is really looking at what is happening, there are tons of posts in miscellaneous blogs and pages with people that are doing the exact same change. It’s sad, the designed by pilots for pilots theme is still there, but now it’s all about money.

ahcr's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 11/27/17 9:10 PM
ForeFlight is generally a fantastic app. Significantly more polished and full-featured than its competition. However, there is one glaring issue: ForeFlight is clearly favoring its preferred ADS-B solutions over more competitively priced options, to the detriment of its users. If I am paying FF a significant amount of $$ to enable AHRS, then I should be free to select my hardware of choice. FF works very well with its preferred Stratus and Scout mobile ADS-B solutions, but does not provide de support for the significantly less expensive (but no less capable) open-source solution: the Stratux. When testing the Stratux with competing software and though its web-based interface, it is clear that the hardware is reliable and accurate and it is only FF’s refusal to open its APIs that causes poor an unreliable performance with this solution. I will not be renewing my Synthetic Vision subscription and am seriously considering dropping FF altogether.

I’ve been using ForeFlight for several years now and the app has always been at the forefront of innovation and usefulness. If it doesn’t quite have everything you could possibly want, just wait a bit, it will probably be in the next update. As for their customer service, it cannot get any better. Problems are few are far between, but when they arise their customer service team is on top of it. Case in point, we had a pop up trip to Mexico and their Mexico/Latin America rep Albert has not only helped me with getting the proper subscriptions, he as also helped us other solving some pilot certification issues with the Mexican authorities. Great App, Great People, you cant ask for more than that.

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

Recent "update" prevents the ability to copy/ paste flight plans from JeppFD-Pro. Every leg, flight plan now has to entered twice first to Jepp then ForFlight.

afpeet's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 11/16/18 2:03 PM
It’s a beautiful Sunday morning and I’m trying to create a weight and balance profile in ForeFlight for a T206 with tip tanks with an FAA DPE looking over my shoulder. (And failing miserably...) After loading all the data I still couldn’t get the CG profile to load properly. All the math was working but the CG envelope was not. I sent the customer service folks at ForeFlight an email not expecting a response until Monday if at all. Well the Customer Service Team responded back immediately with the answer and a sample profile that made it too easy for a dinosaur like me. So...buy ForeFlight because it’s the best product on the market and then renew your subscription because their customer service will be there for you.

When you have questions use email but when you don’t get an answer that solves your problem keep on it to escalate to another person. ForeFlight will escalate and find someone to help you. I have done that twice with success.

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.
Fadi - Great app!'s Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 11/15/17 6:40 AM
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. iPhone X support would be 5 stars.

The Team at ForeFlight continues to impress with new features and integration. We particularly appreciate the multiple ways that information can be accessed with one touch selection to view related information, such as Metar and TAF data in a pop-up window right from the maps view.

acb30000001's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/4/18 3:39 AM
The app is amazing and makes the cockpit duties safer and much more efficient. Pair it with a stratus/stratux and there isn’t any competition. Had to cancel due to not flying, and they responded within 10 minutes aiding in the problem I was facing. This is an amazing team. Thanks guys!
Guitar Malo's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/30/18 9:08 PM
The best app for aviation period. The only reason I can’t give it 5 stars is its not supported with Apple Watch. It’s all I use on my iPad and iPhone but they are behind the times with the watch world.
eceflyboy's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/30/17 7:27 AM
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
Avace-Jim's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/26/17 2:36 AM
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.
DustinTheWind84's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/21/18 11:37 PM
The search feature has been great, but after I select the search result and select "Direct" or "add to route" then the search term should be removed from the search bar. This will improve my JOY. Thanks, and keep up the good work!

KlausNinja's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/18/18 2:19 AM
Over the years I’ve used WingXPro, FlyQ EFB and ForeFlight but always keep coming back to FF. Now have the Pro version. Great versatile and easy to use flight planning and navigation app. Also customer support is outstanding, with timely and detailed email responses to questions. Please keep it up as it’s your support that really keeps me hooked.
clockwork653's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/18/18 1:15 AM
Best tool in the plane. Helps plan a safe trip and fly it with ease. ADS-B weather from my garmin panel is amazing and so much easier to digest and take action based on the information at hand. The ForeFlight Team is always very helpful and they are always making the app better daily.
Superprussian's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/15/17 8:31 PM
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. Thanks, Frank
Dave.L.Jr.'s Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/13/18 12:06 AM
For years I have used and loved FltPlan. For reasons I can't remeber I decided to try ForeFlight, and really liked the idea of integration of Jepps charts. It did take some time to learn how to use it efficiently while weaning myself from FltPlan (still a GREAT product at a price that can't be beat). I recently splurged...and upgraded to the performance package. The web Trip Advisor and Fuel Stop planner takes a great deal of the work out of the planning, and puts most of the decision making data at my fingertips in an easily used format. Yes, it's intuitive and really works well; it's as good or better than ForeFlight's utube videos say. No, I don't work for ForeFlight. I used it recently for a BFI-SNA-BFI trip; fuel stops each way, and the predicted data and actual fuel used were extremely close. ForeFlight's altitude planning section on the return legs led to some very interesting choices in the face of 100+ kt jet stream: F380 on the leg to LMT, and 16,000 LMT-BFI. I had a few technical issues with TEC routes not generating a Briefing in FLIGHTS tab and another issue setting up a C550 Bravo aircraft profile. In each case, my request for support was answered within 24 hours and resolved my problem in a few keystrokes. In first case, they responded honestly that it was a known issue and they were working to fix it. That was a week ago...today the TEC route chosen generated the expected briefing. The team working to support this app is great!! ForeFlight with performance and Jepps purchase price was not insignificant for me, but it really takes the workload out of some complex planning. Great time saver, and worth it to me. If you've been wondering, I hope this helps. Now, to look into Sentry?
Slowpoke96Z28's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/13/17 3:16 AM
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.

Is there anyway to change the warning voice back to the Siri version the new one is very robotic and hard to hear in noisey conditions the old one was awesome.
NewMorning's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 10/1/18 7:39 PM
As a GA flight planning tool FF rates 5 stars. It’s very good, but there is definitely room for improvement and further development, which is clearly in progress. What’s really impressive is the customer support. It’s by far the best support of any app I use.

Wanafow's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 1/8/18 6:07 PM
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!

PW Pilot's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 1/22/18 10:04 PM
We used ForeFlight for years but grew tired of the never ending price increases. If you are looking for a comparable geo-referenced app then seriously consider FltPlan Go. FltPlan Go is offered FREE of charge by FltPlan.com (Flight Plan, LLC) and comparable to ForeFlight except you get multiple choices for ADS-B versus ForeFlight shoves the over-priced Stratus down your throat. In addition, Flight Plan has been around considerably longer than ForeFlight so Flight Plan has more experience and better support. We have no affiliation to Flight Plan, LLC and just helping you make a more informed decision.
Jlhrstv's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 1/19/18 4:52 PM
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.
Lavish_'s Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 1/15/18 8:04 PM
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.
RoyM56's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 1/14/18 2:57 AM
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.
Swede19W's Review of Foreflight Mobile EfbReviewed on 1/10/19 12:56 PM
I don’t know how we got along before trying to fly safely without Apps like ForeFlight. And it keeps getting better. In fact the improvements are hard to keep up with. Truly an essential part of my EFB for preflight planning and while flying. Also ForeFlights support folks are knowledgeable and most helpful. Please keep up the good work. Jeff Johnson
