Nice app. It goes way past basic info and that's very good. But the fact that it can't be moved to an SD card is a big problem. I can't take full advantage of it this way. I have to uninstall it until that problem is fixed.
Download window is blocked by map view somehow Cant download after the third region. Please update.
Why is there no option to download to SD card
Need a lot of work if someone is going to pay $26+ for subscription. But can't complain since the main app is free.
Very good! And easy to use!
I've tried out a couple of EFB apps on Android tablets and phones. I'm a VFR-only pilot who does short cross-countries now and then, plus a lot of "airport-hopping". I also fly aircraft that are pretty basic, maybe a VOR at best. I needed something to keep me out of the local Class C/D airspaces, follow flight plans, pull up airport info in a pinch, and find nearby airports in a hurry. Skycharts satisfies these needs well. The moving map displays nicely on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S5) and it's quite responsive. I like the ability to rubber-band a flight plan leg at will. The airport database is good. Best of all, it's really simple to use. This is key for me - I don't want to re-learn the app before every flight, and bouncing over mountainous terrain is no time to find that your moving map is mysteriously showing you a large chunk of Atlantic ocean and you can't get back to the flight path. (Yes, this happened to me on a previous app!) There are a few downsides - the app is still in beta and has some rough edges, the zoom isn't there quite yet. However, the developer has been VERY responsive to my feedback and fixed a lot of issues. I now take it with me on all my flights!
