    Know how to calculate freefall and canopy drift. Once you do, you can easily use this to visually confirm your calculated exit point with a tolerance added to accommodate multiple jumpers and the associated jump run. Upper winds readily available in the app to help you with your spot calculations, cloud altitudes so you know if you'll be able to at least do some hop and pops if the cloud layer is too thick for a full altitude jump, but high enough to jump below it. You can input canopy type, opening altitude etc. to increase accuracy. You can adjust your landing direction and pattern leg entry points based on the actual ground conditions. Best app for skydiving. Spend the few dollars and max the features out... best <$10 you'll spend to make sure you don't land off. Everything in skydiving is expensive... this isn't. Great work.

    Used as extra tool for running winds per lift and unknown DZ. comparisons made to running the wind calcs myself and much quicker and without error, day and night Thanks

    Most skydiving apps are hopelessly amateurish and are not really useful. This one sets a new standard of sophistication. Buy the extra features for $2.88. Well worth it. A dynamic landing probability map that takes into account winds aloft pulled automatically from the Internet vastly exceeded my expectations. Andrey Kan, the guy who wrote this app rocks.

    This is the best app for skydiving. You are missing out if you don't have this app on your iPhone or iPad! The developer is a skydiver and is very responsive to feedback. Download this one...you won't regret it!
  • Great tool for new skydivers

    I bought this tool as I just got AFF certified and was having problems with my landing pattern. I still make adjustments before I jump, but this has helped me get a better understanding of increasing my legs based upon wind and where I need to in relation to the wind. In order for this app to helpful, you need to pay for the weather add on because it adjusts your pattern according to wind direction and velocity. Thank you for helping out the novice jumpers.

    This app rocks for showing almost instant very accurate weather for my Dropzone, even though there is no internet weather station here. I guess the app interpolates the weather sources nearby and it does a great job of it. The landing pattern tool is a great help for me and made my landings right on target the last 5 jumps - a great tool for my 30 jump experience level though I'm sure I'll use it for all my future jumps because it shows a nice satellite view of the DZ with landing pattern overlayed! Oh my DZ (Dubai) wasn't on the list but after one email the developer had input all the data within 24hr! That's amazing service and a really good app!!

    Great one stop shop for info and guidance. I'm a newer skydiver and the map/landing pattern tool is helping with my landing accuracy. Haven't tested the accuracy of the spotting overlay but it's a nice supportive visual reminder. The weather/wind direction and forecast features are great. This version is a great start and I can't wait to see how this app evolves.
