What's New in Version 1.0.1
Updated for iOS 5.0
Terrific app and packed with very accurate info. Developers did a great job. UI is good and clean. Has enough info to stay interesting without info overload. As for the Harrier comment below by jodi johnson......it talks about the AV-8B. If you are such an expert, you would know the Brits USED to fly the GR series. Also, the USAF doesn't fly the Harrier, the Marine Corps does. Besides,the Brits just sold their entire Harrier fleet to the US. Get your facts straight before you criticize others.
Extremely us forces bias
For a buck fine for 7 NO! When I think of a harrier I think of the raf ones just like I do with spit(fire)s and the p40 well this app SOMEHOW manages to show USAF for all 3 of those
I really could go on about it but they give the impression the us forces are the only ones to fly when I KNOW the raf also flies
Personally I'm thinking this app is a disgrace for anyone intrested in planes/flying and I can't help but think it was a buck that I could have spent better
This app is truly mind blowing. For the plane rotation can you add the ability to see top and bottom. That would be great. Also, can you add more planes like the ac130 specter and planes like that. That would really be amazing
