Last night my phone pinged me and said I had an app update available for iFly. Hot Dang - Christmas came early! I downloaded, installed and started playing around. The 'What's New' tab showed these below plus more. Comments below by feature:

1. Current airport NOTAMs - a NOTAMs button right in the airport quick view box Airport Info button - GREAT!

2. FSS and ATC comms - now included in the Comms section. Just touch the CTAF/TER/AWOS/ASOS tabs in the airport popup box. - FANTASTIC!

3. Changed the icon for the Rwy/Wind suggestions. Funny how a small visual change makes things quicker to process - GOOD JOB on this detail.

4. Real Plan Beta - Only tried one fairly simple one-leg trip with some airspace and SUA constraints. It did just about exactly what I whould have done. Not enough difference to change the suggested route. (Back in the Dark Ages I coded some optimization programs in another business sector. The iFly coders who took on this programming task have my utmost respect and sympathy! - I'm hoping your tools are much more advanced than my were.) Keep up the good work!

5. Support for importing flight plans from AOPA, SkyVector and others - Have I been waiting for this one! I use the AOPA Planner on my desktop for flight planning. An easy import method would be very welcome. I looked everywhere and could not find a path to import. So my one question: Where and How? I guess that's two questions.

Thanks to the iFly Team for all the great updates.

Merry Christmas to Everyone,

John

We are reaching out to AOPA and SkyVector to add our app to their list.  The API we implemented is almost identical to one of the other commonly supported products, so it shouldn't take much for them to get us on their list.

Strange, but I see no update to to the Version 11. I was excited to see a Youtube video and disappointed to not find it to download. Help.

Thanks

So far I've just seen it for my iPhone. I think it might have gone to the droid but not sure.
