Flight Planning Enhancements
• Continuing our drive to make flight planning in ForeFlight more powerful and efficient, this release includes a number of noteworthy improvements to flight planning and filing workflows.
• The detailed and printable Navlog on Flights now provides spaces to record actual time and fuel values for each leg of your flight.
• You can now enter multiple comma-separated email addresses into the Email field at the bottom of the filing form to send flight plan information and updates from ATC like expected route notifications to fellow pilots or crew members.
• ForeFlight now sends SMS text messages in addition to emails and push notifications to provide updates regarding your flight plan, such as ATC rejections and flight delay notices, slot allocation messages, and overdue VFR flight plan reminders.
• Use the new INFO button on Flights to view detailed information about your departure, destination, and alternate airports.
• Tap-hold on the FILED and EXPECTED route strings in the flight plan filing form to copy them to your device’s clipboard and share them with others.

Traffic & Glance Mode in Synthetic Vision
• Two powerful enhancements to Synthetic Vision increase its value for situational awareness.
• Synthetic Vision now shows moving traffic targets for nearby aircraft, complete with relative distance, altitude, and call sign information. Requires an ADS-B In traffic source such as Scout, Stratus, or Garmin Flight Stream.
• Swipe within the Synthetic Vision window to enter Glance Mode, an interactive experience with zoomable 360-degree view of the terrain, obstacles, airports, and traffic around your aircraft.
• Synthetic Vision is included with a Pro Plus subscription plan or higher, and is available as an optional add-on for business accounts.

Auto Day/Night Transition and App Themes

• Organized Tracks are available with Performance Plus or Business Performance subscription plans.

Jeppesen Enroute Charts Enhanced with Single Tap Support
• Like ForeFlight’s data-driven Aeronautical map, Jeppesen’s global enroute charts in ForeFlight now support the single-tap gesture on visible map elements like airports and waypoints to quickly view information about them and add them to your route.

Foreflight: Essential and best value in all of aviation!

Visth

FF is easily the best app for aviation. I have all others, and they are not bad, some even good (eg GP), but I will not leave home without FF. Connecting to various Garmin devices now makes it a great in flight manager as well. I am glad that emphasis is placed on pre-flight management in this update. While flying multiple aircraft in various conditions, different performances, loads, settings, it is all adjusted on the fly through a pilot centered, intuitive interface. This makes keeping track of all data pertinent to a flight, as well as briefing, filing and tracking the flight as easy as can be. As an app goes, it is not cheap like a 2.99 game, but as an essential, reliable tool it is the cheapest utility around in all of aviation. In a world where we measure things in AMU’s, this app and it’s subscription fees are nothing to cry about, and in my opinion the subscription fee is the least I can contribute to keep this ForeFlight team eager to improve and grow.

My only concern is not related to FF, but more related to the iPad and its very short life cycle before obsolescence. I am already concerned about what will happen when iPads cease to exist. For now, i am including a new iPad every other year to the price of doing business.

Traffic display on synthetic vision.

I’m a long-time Foreflight user and have seen many updates and changes over the years but... I wanted to give the team props on the new feature where traffic is displayed on the heads-up (SV) screen. I don’t frequently use the synthetic vision display except in areas of high terrain but on a trip to Denver this week I checked out that feature thoroughly (traffic display on SV). It was quite accurate in the depiction of traffic location with respect to aircraft flying around me. It was pretty cool how I was able to reference a lake or other feature to more-easily spot planes below me. And with the on-screen targets growing larger as they get closer it gives you a great perspective of how serious the threat actually is. Good job guys! I’ve been ADS-B compliant since January 2014 and have enjoyed traffic depictions for several years now. I understand the importance of looking outside the cockpit but I’m certain that the Foreflight traffic display does enhance safety. I’ll likely use “synthetic vision” more now, particularly in areas of high traffic concentration.

Foreflight: ruining an app one update at a time

Wastintime

This is the worst update foreflight has ever made. They took something so streamlined, quick, and easy as flight planning and made it cumbersome and ungainly. It's no longer simple to make a few little changes and see how it affects the flight. You have to load and create performance profiles. It's like they never even considered you might fly a different speed or TAS at different altitudes. Not to mention not everyone wants to waste time with creating a whole new profile when you just want to see how changing one number changes the flight. AND not everyone only flies one airplane! These last two updates ruined the best thing about foreflight. Now they've also ruined your map screen. All the colors have shifted and seem to be permanently stuck on night mode. No setting will change it back. Now you can barely read TAFs and metars in the daylight. On top of everything else the app crashes at least once a flight now, and if it doesn't crash you have to restart it any time it loses communication with your ADS-B unit because it won't reconnect or show any data or even the device unless you restart the app. Talk about going backwards.

Developer Response

Hi Wastintime - we appreciate your feedback. In ForeFlight Mobile EFB 9.1 you can adjust your aircraft’s performance profile data for a flight by typing space-separated values for cruise speed and/or fuel flow directly into the Flight Plan Editor. We created this Quick Tip video tutorial that shows how: https://youtu.be/7OU3VR2ZziM Please send us an email at team@foreflight.com if we can be of any further assistance.
