C172 Performance computes all the useful performance numbers for flight planning for Cessna 172S, 172P, 172N,172M, and 172I aircraft. It includes calculations for takeoff, landing, climb, cruise, descent, instrument procedures as well as emergencies. It also includes an interactive hold calculator, a risk analysis tool, and an emergency glide distance calculator that handles head and tailwinds.
C172 Performance is also available on other mobile devices and as a WebApp (an App that runs in a browser) that runs on a variety of platforms (PC, Mac, tablets, phones). The cloud sync feature allows flight planning profiles entered on any device to be synchronized with your other devices when connected to the Internet.

Ratings and Reviews
I have found this app to be easy to use and a helpful planning tool. I haven’t flown general aviation in many years and was excited for the new technology. This app allows for quick and easy W&B and performance calculations along with current weather conditions. I highly recommend it.
Great Planning tool!
Nice performance program with useful weight & balance & hold calculators as a bonus👍
Not ready for primetime
Opened the app on iPhone6 and the tip-screen blocks 50% the EULA, and there was no way to move the tip screen aside to click the ‘agreed’ button. Couldn’t get across this initial screen.
As an end-user, this merits zero star.
I think the version you were using had an issue due to iOS 11 in which the initial popup would have the OK button off screen. Changing the orientation made the button available. More recent versions have fixed this issue.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
