What's New in Version 8.3.1
This minor release contains a number of stability improvements and fixes a bug related to the Associated Entries list for Logbook aircraft showing incorrect flight times.
Protect Night Vision with Color Inversion for Charts and Documents
Color Inversion inverts colors on IFR enroute charts, VFR Sectionals, procedure plates, airport diagrams, and documents, reducing eye strain while keeping text and icons prominently visible. Turn the setting on and off manually from the Maps, Plates, and Documents Settings menus.
Share Your Flying Adventures with Logbook Entry Summary
With Logbook Entry Summary, ForeFlight creates a beautifully designed web page showcasing your flight stats, a map of your route, and photos of your flight that you can share on social media or via email.
Additional Logbook Enhancements: More Ways to Streamline Data Entry and New Type Rating Currency Tracking
We continue to streamline flight logging to save you time and taps. It is now easier to lookup and add airport approaches to flight entries from a filtered list. In addition, when selecting the aircraft for a flight entry, a helpful Recent Aircraft list displays your three most recently logged aircraft first. You can now add single or multi-model type ratings to your Logbook Currency Summary for better visibility into your flight status.
ForeFlight is Your SIC with Helpful Destination Weather Frequency Callout
Like a good co-pilot, ForeFlight automatically displays the weather frequency as you approach your destination, giving you time to tune in and record details to prep for your landing. You can manage all alert settings in More > Settings > Alerts.
SiriusXM Reaches the Top with New Satellite Weather Layers
ForeFlight pilots flying with SiriusXM’s SXAR1 can steer clear of severe weather with access to two new products - Cloud Tops and Echo Tops.
New Color Infrared Satellite Layer
You can now choose between two satellite layers: Enhanced and Color IR. The legacy Satellite layer is now Enhanced Satellite, and the new full-color infrared layer depicts cloud top temperatures, helping you determine where airframe icing conditions may exist.

Excellent Product AND Customer Support
Emailed Customer Support with a minor log in problem. They responded quickly, but the problem persisted. But so did their effort to fix the problem until it was resolved (and truth be told it was most likely something I was doing). They were never condescending and I always felt the only focus was to fix the problem for an important part of their business...their customer.
I followed with several other operational questions and in each case they provided a clear and thoughtful response.
I've used several of their major competitors over the last 10-12 years and while very good products, I believe FF the best. It's intuitive and packed with most everything one needs to plan and fly. Very few pilots would be disappointed with this product.
Fabulous product! FANTASTIC Customer support !
ForeFlight continues to remain the premier aviation moving map product. They are in continuous improvement year after year. Some other software products have a prettier interface and a neat custom map but they do not have an overall superior feature set. ForeFlight remains the mark to beat.
One feature that ForeFlight stands out head and shoulders above the competition is in customer support and service. Over the years I have had occasions to email support for a question or request. Typical response time was a few hours! No one beats them here!
Apple Watch compilation please
I just have one Feedback and I'm crossing my fingers you guys add this. I rarely touch the Apple Watch app because I can get my weather on the phone much quicker. The one feature that would change that would be a compilation add on for ForeFlight. If I could just glance at my watch face and see the current metar that would make a world of difference. Please consider this.
And thank you again on all your hard work.
