  • Decent app awful support

    The app is overall pretty good. However, support is pretty much a joke. They need a phone number.

    I don’t really use documents on the phone, so having to search for weather is a bit annoying.
  • Foreflight is a game changer for military flight instructors

    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.

    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.
  • Weather briefing

    The new weather briefing is TERRIBLE!!! Bring back the old briefings. The rest of the app does its job. Fix the briefings and I’ll give it 5 stars.

    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.
  • Automatic renewal with no refunds BEWARE

    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.

    Why would you move the imagery button?? A) why would I want to use documents on my iPhone and B) why is it now that much harder to find the weather products??
