This must be a joke. Pretty much 99% of the time you have to notify airport to even fly on your backyard because guess what? Pretty much every space in this country is occupy by airspace. I'm not kidding, even public park are off limit for crying out loud. Good luck having fun without being harassed by the money generating blue vest.
Doesn't work The app opens and the big grey circle just spins and spins but never loads anything. If the FAA wants to say it's OUR responsibility to make sure we fly safely, then they need to produce the proper tools for this. The fact people are actually downloading this app shows people are trying to do just that. The rating of this app on the other hand shows the complete opposite on the FAA's part.
Lost in Airspace This app almost never works. It never opens and is as useful as a plane without wings. I would have a better chance of knowing if I was in a class D Airspace by putting my ear to the ground and listening for jet engines. Don't waste your time loading it on your phone or tablet.
Wow, I've never seen an app rated so low, but I see why... 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.
Worst app in the market - FAA made UAS operation less safe with this The FAA releases this, essentially killing the many useful tools that existed before this junk. Now we're left with a completely useless app and no alternatives. Congratulations, FAA - you literally made UAS operations inarguably less safe than it was before you "fixed" it. FIX THIS APP - grade school kids produce higher quality software than this mess.
B4UFly your mobile device across the room... This app is useless. The behavior of this application makes me worry about what the FAA is trying to do here. I thought I found a good tool to use prior to purchasing a drone. I'm no closer to a decision because this app constantly freezes, makes it hard to use other apps when it is stuck, the phone starts to get hot and causes the screen to flicker. I'm not expecting JFK Tower A-like communications here, but this is ridiculous.
