Not really suitable for PPL
Having bought several apps by The Great Circle overall I would say they are an ideal aid for anyone studying for their flying exams and due to the ease of accessability particularly great for when you have a spare 5 mins. This one was the final one I bought to help me pass the Helicopter POF exam which I took (and passed) today and to be honest the questions in the app were much harder than the questions on the exam paper. In fact, so much harder that I would say this app is probably not really aimed at the PPL student and more aimed at commercial and / or instructor level.
I actually found that despite there being no real mock papers for helicopter POF, the aircraft general in the PPL Simplifier contained more questions that I found in the exam than this app did. Also, as is the case with all of the apps I have used by The Great Circle, there are a number of spelling mistakes which, when you are studying a new and alien topic for the very first time, doesn't help (things like 'false' instead of 'force' really helps to confuse matters). I have written to the designers regarding this but unfortunately their answer is 'Apple have approved it so we're not going to change anything'.
Overall I'm sure it's a good app for the commercial student (although I'm just assuming) but for the PPL student I'd save your money.
