FlightSafety has listened to our customers and is proud to release the newest update to FlightBag.
FlightBag is a training and reference app for the iPad, enabling users the ability to more effectively and efficiently view, manage, and annotate their important training resources. Based upon client input, FlightBag has been designed with a new user interface, as well as enhanced, cloud-based document management and annotation capabilities, presenting a far superior training experience. With this update to FlightBag subscription syncing times have been reduced and a new set of annotations tools are provided for improved study and quicker learning.
FlightBag requires either an active FlightSafety subscription, or an existing/new training reservation.
FAVORITE DOCUMENTS & SUBSCRIPTIONS OVERVIEW
The new FlightBagTM app offers efficient and effective management, retrieval, and updating of these important resources. Users can access documents quickly on the main menu, and tag “favorites”, or documents they use most frequently, for direct access across subscriptions, and on a wide variety of devices.
A new document viewer and annotation tool makes note taking easier. Users can now access annotation tools without switching between editing and viewing modes. Tools are “front-and-center”, better organized, and provide better control over document and page features of the past.
CLOUD SYNCING & BACKGROUND UPDATES
Users can keep their documents and notes up-to-date during training. “Favorites”, notes, and annotations are synced seamlessly to the FlightSafety cloud, and may be accessed on all your devices. With background updates, documents are flagged when there are revision updates, and users may commence reading a document, while the remaining updates continue downloading in the background.
Users may access their training materials from virtually any device. FlightBag™ is available for the Apple iPad, as well is accessible via a web-browser version, providing access to the app for desktop computers and non-iOS tablet devices. A familiar look and feel ensures users the same interface on these complimentary versions.
•Improved annotation toolset and new document view layout
•More intuitive app navigation and menu systems
•Reduced subscription syncing times for faster access to your training materials
•Improved annotation cloud syncing
•Numerous bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
The app is virtually worthless. It is a horrible memory hog; requires WiFi to open about half the time; shuts down during use without warning; logs me off between uses roughly 50% of the time; requires a ridiculous password protocol; and is so slow and cumbersome that it is my very last choice when seeking information. I think FlightSafety just loves telling clients they have an app, because that about summarizes it’s worth.
Compared to the previous version 5 stars
The app still has a couple of bugs to resolve but way better.
Randomly shuts down.
Works just long enough to get into a studying groove but randomly shuts down, and doesn’t save my study notes notes, bookmarks, or reopen where I left off. I have the most up-to-date iPad operating system and FlightBag version, so not sure what’s up. I wish I had opted for the paper study materials.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
