“Best ATC-style game yet” ~ FlightGlobal.com
APP (Approach) Control is air traffic control as realistic as it gets, from the comfort of your iPhone or iPad. Are you as good as you think you are? Challenge yourself. Uses REAL airport layouts and detailed features for as realistic gameplay as possible.
You are an air traffic controller in the Approach radar room of a busy airport. Command planes to adjust their headings, altitudes and speeds and guide them to their final approach fix or exit point at the requested altitude. But be careful! You must always maintain Air Traffic rules: a 3-mile lateral or a 1000 feet vertical separation, just like in real air traffic control services. The more planes you safely land, the faster they go- how long can you keep it up?
A realistic ATC app to run on your phone - test your Approach skills anytime, anywhere. No ads, and a free Worldwide Leaderboard – compare your scores. Can you beat the best of them?
Best of all, REALISTIC FEATURES:
- Control the headings, altitudes and speeds of planes
- Real-life rules of always maintaining a minimum of a 3-mile lateral or a 1000-feet vertical separation of aircraft
- Uses the REAL layouts of international airports
- Short term conflict alerts
- Speed vectors
- History trail

CAUTION TO NON-ATC PLAYERS: this is an as-close-to-reality as it gets air traffic control game. You may have difficulty if you have no experience with realistic air traffic control. Think of it as training- good luck! This Air Traffic Control simulation app is meant for real air traffic controllers who can't get enough, aviation enthusiasts, students, pilots and anyone with an interest in testing their skills in a realistic ATC environment.

What's New in Version 3.7
- New airlines
- New voice that you can configure yourself
- New user interface for account management
It's a fantastic game, best in terms of scenarios, types and parameters being able to be controlled. I easily spend hours playing this game it just doesn't stop.
BUT, I have no idea how to get help if any. I leave the game for too long browsing the web, I don't close it, it dumps the memory when I go back and lose all of what I had going. The app apparently can't handle itself even with 128GB of storage on the device which is more than half free and no support from the developer. I'd love to change my review, love the game but, good luck, not like it can keep track of your game.
As real as it gets
As soon as you make a mistake; it's game over.
Very realistic and I am glad that I have bought it. A very puzzling simulator that truly puts your multi-tasking skills to the test. A good game if you want a crash course in air traffic control. A great game if you are looking to become an air traffic controller.
This game has so much potential. This is my take a a real pilot.
-Can't vector aircraft to wavepoints/VORs
-Aircraft and Airlines in the wrong places. Why is Southwest flying in LHR...?
-Can't chose departure runways.
-Game does not allow parallel arrivals. Very standard at most airports and it "violates" the games 3sm/1000ft window.
-Game sets weird departure altitudes. For example, Lubbock has aircraft descend after takeoff to 4000ft.... In the U.S. All aircraft are cleared to 10,000 feet during their IFR clearance.
-Game penalizes you if a aircraft leaves the terminal if isn't at the assigned altitude but it is not possible to make the climb sometimes
-"Deals" or close aircraft should turn red and an alarm should sound
