What's New in Version v1.1.2
Prevent audio only workshops from sleeping
Added additional help content
Good but needs updated
I bought the entire series when first offered and the content for training is excellent. I would give five stars except for the following: (1) If you start watching a section and leave the app it starts at the beginning. If the app is still running it needs to restart where you were. (2) There is no way to mark which sections you have watched. I took screenshots of the lists, printed off and then mark when watched. A simple box next to the section title to mark when read would be helpful. (3). I am not aware of any updates in the app since purchased. Seems it was developed, sold and then no further updates.
Very good stuff
The content is very good. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because the app is limited in usefulness. It does not have the ability to multitask. You can't lock your device and still listen to the audio, nor can you take notes on the same device while listening. It's great the app works on both iPhone and iPad, but no iPhone 5 support for the larger screen. Please update these few things and it will get 5 stars.
I took advantage of the introductory offer. I'm glad I did. This is information that is always good to have in the forefront of your thoughts when doing any kind of flying. It's nice to have a sort of hub to go to if you have a question or just want to do some hangar flying. Always informative and thought provoking. Helps me formulate my thoughts for what I want to do on training flights. Great App!!!
