Is there any way to Give less than a single star? Can someone redo this app so that it works? Confusing, slow, locks up, can't drop a pin in the same place twice, won't remember settings and lists airports that have been gone for >20 years. Please help! I live in the NFZ outside DFW airport. Now it won't even show the restricted area around DFW. POS.
This is one of the worst apps I've ever used. Terribly programmed, slow, made my phone hot, barely even useful. It's basically just a list of redirect links to websites and a confusing map. This is what happens when you pay small children in Legos to do something an actual engineer should have handled.
I am honestly, legitimately confused how this app has been recently updated, but is still so awful. This app should be removed from the Play store until it can be properly tested & released. This is an absolute embarrassment to the UAV community. You'd think with all the horrible feedback, the developers might take note and make some improvements (or perhaps just start over)... but this is truly awful. For such a crucial and urgently needed application, this is the worst possible implementation. MANY better, stable alternatives available. It's really sad to see this app is actually being updated, but remains such a useless waste of space.
This app is a damn joke!!!! Always tells me not to fly because I'm within 5 miles of an airport when I'm not!! My home is 10 miles from SFO but noooo it says within 5. San Francisco Chinatown is 16 but it says within 5. Need I go on? This app is garbage. Don't use it
I'm going to kick this off saying that I appreciate the intent behind this app. Giving drone users, both recreational and professional, a one stop shop to find out the situation for a planned flight is great. However, there are some MAJOR problems with this app that all but prevent me from using it. First off, the early 2000's called, they want their UX back. I mean really, this is the clunkiest user interface I've ever interfaced with. It's slow, unintuitive, and difficult to get info from It that you are looking for. Why the hell do I need to move to a whole other tab just to set up a plan? I should be able to click a spot on the map, and immediately be told what I need to do be flightworthy. Need to offset the time? Just provide a dropdown at the top or bottom to set the time and date, click and get your info. Secondly, there are times that I am scrolling around the map looking for places to fly. Every time I scroll the map data needs to refresh, and sometimes it doesn't even refresh. So I'm left wondering if I'm missing a crucial TFR or airport boundary. That's a REALLY good way to lose credibility. How the hell can you talk to me about responsibility and needing to use the app before I fly when your app doesn't even provide useful information in a timely matter? Seriously, the last time I used an app that slow was back when blackberry had a share in the market.
So many bad reviews on this app, the creators of it should be emarrased. Gonna uninstall it.
This release provides the ability to display current or planned airspace class by tapping on the map pin. Improved feedback capabilities. Minor bug fixes.
