NEW iPhone app - VFR Flight Guide

Post by EI KEV » Thu Aug 18, 2011 4:29 pm

I am delighted to announce the availability of my new iPhone app

The new 2011 VFR Flight Guide is now available as an app for download from iTunes for €19.99

http://itunes.apple.com/ie/app/vfr-flig ... 48974?mt=8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Following ten months development and the completion of the data transfer from the new book (with corrections) - The app contains all the airfield information from the book and is fully searchable, information can be filtered (eg. airfields at least 500M) and you can select airfields to add to favorites tab.
It also allows you to enter your own notes on each airfield.

I hope you find this useful. An iPad and android versions will be available shortly.

Hi Batman, comparitively speaking it's pricey for an app but given that its a very specialist app (Irish pilots, maybe a handful visitors) there's a limited market for EI-KEV. The price has to reflect his development costs....if had a market of hundreds of thousands I'm sure it would have a lower price.

EI-KEV don't have an iphone/android yet but the APP will be on my list when I make the switch. Filtering's a great idea.

Very true david, i should have said best of luck to EI-KEV with the book and app, great to see someone developing such a usefull resource for both Irish and visiting pilots alike.....now if someone would just like to get onto apple to develop a battery that wont die within two hours of turning the phone on so i can actually get use out of the app we'll be sorted :D

And dont say get an android!!

Androids are the job.

This app is a good idea - I look forward to seeing the android version.

I wonder if there's a way to use it with google maps? For example you can use a wikipedia layer with your google map on the android so that little W symbols pop up at different locations on the map as you move around and if you tap them it opens the wikipedia file for that item.

If you could integrate that with with your guide in the same way it would be the job, i.e. as you fly around, your symbol pops up and tapping on it opens the file for that airfield.
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.

Superb App, I have it alongside the "aeroweather" app and the "met office" app..... makes it a very useful tool.
At €19.99 it is a seal, a lot of work gone into producing it..... well done.
