I love this app. I've had it for years. I don't play XI as much as I used to. I wish I could but its been 8 years now and a lot of changes have happened and I've got more responsibilities to tend to. :p anyway, it's great when I'm sitting in work and think about XI I can just open it up and watch the airships fly back and fourth. That's one of my favorite features. Getting a notification when the airship docks. Especially nice in kazham. Love Kazham. Not important like it used to be though. *reminisce* it's like a flight track app for real life! Among all the other features this app is great. I have but one request....
Please make this iPhone 5 compatible so I can have more screen space! Lose the black letter boxes! Thank you!
For some reason I am unable to load the maps. I've tried to contact support but am unable to get through to the website or the help tab on the app itself. I'm sure this is because the app is old. The last update to it was 2 years ago I think.
Edit: not a day after I wrote this review, the app was fixed with all the maps working properly. The support website was also working. All the features of this app are awesome. Definitely worth the low cost.
Usually when you download an app, they have problems getting the Vana'diel time accurate. But this app has it accurate to every second. It dings right when an airship leaves or when a shop opens. The alarms are amazing, and the maps are even more amazing. I highly, highly suggest this app. Would have paid more for it it's that good. (It also does really well in 日本語)!! I was vey impressed.
