Ratings and Reviews
Poor user interface
The plates are good, as you would expect from Pooleys, but the app is very poorly designed and implemented. For instance, to download all plates to be available off-line (which I am sure most people will want to do) you have to wade through a PDF instruction manual to find out that you have to type 'Pooleys' manually into the search box in order to make the menu choice appear. That is quite stunningly idiotic! Unfortunately that is not the only amateurish aspect of the design. I hope Pooleys did not pay much for it.
Despite what it says on just about every flyer forum these plates are not georeferenced. The minimal amount of Pre purchase information on Pooleys website is appalling. If you want the proper georeferenced versions you will have to purchase within another App such as SkyDemon.
The iPlates App itself is pitiful. The handling of search, favourites etc is poor. The only way to make use of the plates properly is to export the pdfs to a third party App then organise them manually.
Total waste of money.
Yes, its a nice way to get your plates. Pooleys are the best at the printed version and in-valuable in the cockpit. But you should not have to pay for iPlates that are free on the AIS. I fully understand the need to finance the app, but you could be given this free with the flight guide.
Go the your local AIS service. You could download Airmate app or similar to get these plates for free.
