•FliteDeck is easy to learn and use, because of its intuitive design—it just makes sense.
•It is a complete solution—quality charting and data, tested user experience, training, support and services designed to help you be completely mobile.
•Airport Diagram – it is comprehensive. All of the information needed including obstacle departure procedures are all organized in one place where you need it and when you need it.
•SIDs/STARs – it’s on the chart ! Only Jeppesen will draw these complicated SIDs/STARs onto the Enroute Moving Map specific to the runway departing or arriving to.
•Night Mode. Only Jeppesen has night mode for both en-route charts and all plates. No other app has that.
•A single chart view. Jeppesen add value by representing on a single chart features of both IFR and VFR charts where they can add or remove features from a single chart view. Others only have imagery of specific chart types.
it's a dog
With the new update, performance is horrendous. The latency between touch inputs and app responses is extremely sluggish. I could never use this in cockpit, as I can't wait 30 seconds for a plate to load!
Foreflight, even with the NOS charts, is still the gold standard. That app has never crashed or stopped responding on me, yet.
It doesn't seem Jeppesen has put a lot of effort into this app, although they might feel differently.
Massive slowdown bug renders app useless
This latest version of the application has repeatedly exhibited a massive slowdown problem which causes the app to be unusable. And this is while running on the latest iPad Air 2 hardware with all iOS updates, plenty of available storage space, etc.
I have tried all sorts of troubleshooting including shutdown and power on of the iPad, force restart of the iPad, force quitting recent apps, etc etc.
I see this problem not only on my iPad but on other operators as well, including iPad Air 1 hardware.
Please advise if and when you will solve this slowdown issue.
Had a rough time with the previous version continually freezing.
So far this version is working fine at home.
Fingers are crossed until airborne.
