FlightPlan E6B released for Android!

FlightPlan is an application I have been developing for iOS since 2008. The android version is the first step to bringing all of that functionality to the android platform.

The android version has initially launch with the basic E6B functions that FlightPlan is known for. FlightPlan for android will continue to improve as I integrate more and more features, and all new features will be included free of charge. I'm always looking for user's feedback, so please feel free to email me with suggestions!

Also, if you notice any anomalies on your device please let me know. It seems to be difficult to predict how the app will look on all devices, and I appreciate your patience while I work through any issues that are reported.

In-Dev Update

Just wanted to post what I’ve been up to App wise the past couple of weeks, and what is in store for your mobile pleasure:

FlightScale: I just submitted an update tonight for FlightScale that will allow you to use up to 7 limit points now in your envelope. Judging from Apple’s recent approval process, expect this to hit your iPads in about 5-6 days.

FlightPlan (iPhone): I’m getting some good enhancements in FlightPlan that frankly should have been integrated long ago. A lot of older calculations aren’t heeding the setting changes for your units, and I’ve been fixing them up to do so. I’ve been finding these by doing testing while developing the android version of FlightPlan, so it really will help improve both products.

FlightPlan (android): I’m still making progress on the initial release of FlightPlan for android, but I’m still a ways off from submitting it to the market. I’ll try to check in again in 2 weeks to see where I’m at; I’m hoping to be pretty close to the initial release in 2 weeks but with family coming to visit...you never know.

FlightLog: I’ve started re-architecting how FlightLog handles its data. Namely, I have a few users that are really pushing FlightLog to the limits of their older iPhones and they are having memory issues. When I complete this big update, they will have issues no longer. I’m still a couple weeks out from completing this as well.

So, all in all, I’m getting some good stuff done. It’ll get to you soon, I hope! Happy 4th to everyone state side. To everyone else, go on holiday anyway! :D

FlightPlan for Android started

I just wanted to let the community know that I have started development of FlightPlan for android. The release is still a few weeks off, but I’ll be releasing this software in stages, meaning that when I get the core E6B functions completed I’ll submit it to the store. As I finish more advanced functions, like Weight & Balance, those will be included as well.

I do look forward to getting FlightPlan out on android. Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any specific questions.

FlightPlan Update Submitted!

I’ve been working on an update to FlightPlan tonight, and I’m happy to say that I’ve made some good progress on improving the Weight and Balance system more. I currently have FlightPlan plotting your weight and balance on a diagram so you can see your envelope and how you fall within / around it!

This is a feature that has been asked for a few times now, and it is something I’ve always meant to add but I just didn’t know how to approach it. The new limits screen gave me a good place to put this information so I figured now is as good of a time as any.

I’ll be continuing work on this update for the rest of this week and submit it by the end of the weekend. You should see a FlightPlan update hit your phones next week sometime.
