So far the best I've tried, compares to the pay versions. 4.5 stars not 5 because of the lack of current instructions, a lot of experimentation to get everything going. The last update destroyed the app, lost everything, multiple checklists, routes, weight and balance, plates....having to reload everything still can't get import lists to work, the location of files has changed and can't find it. After reloading everything I'm still using it, be sure to turn off auto updates.

WHAT THE HECK!!!!! Latest upgrade of a great app destroyed by your developers. Lost all 50 plus saved flight plans, weight and balances etc. Going to Foreflight now, they don't screw things up. (previously..) I've been using Avare for years. Great for X-country & local flights. Only concern some map stitching overlays cut off information boxes. I.E. 78° & HGR's VOR & others. Info can still be obtained by looking at the airports pop-up & CSup.

I really like the app. I've been using it for 2 years now. Today I added a Stratux receiver to give me traffic on it. Only problem is that as of the last update, any time I open a different window on my device it loses all of the data and have to reenter the flight plan. Hope they fix it quickly. Edit: Thanks for the update! Solved the restart problem!
