The philosophy behind this app is to use your android phone as a flight instrument without taking it in sight, but in the pocket of your flying suit or harness. This brings comfort (you don’t need cockpit) and autonomy (screen on draws too much power from the battery) to your flights. You should use wired or bluetooth headphones or a handheld remote speaker microphone (RSM) to listen the vario tones and voice messages generated by the app. For those phones which have not a built-in pressure sensor the app has full BlueFlyVario module support.
