Recommended Posts

Developer Alex Bartis has been in touch to advise his new App for iPhone and iPad is now available he says- 

 

FlightSim Utils is an utility app for every simulation pilot out there.

FlightSim Utils was born because I needed a helper app, while learning to use FSX and X-Plane. Then I've decided to make it presentable so other people could use it.

Current features supported:
- Complete database of FSX/P3D/X-Plane key bindings (user editable)
- An assorted collection of aircraft checklists
- Live METAR weather data
- Displaying of KML, PLN (FSX) or FMS (X-Plane) flight plans with automatic displaying of on-route nearby airports 
- 3D Touch quick actions (on compatible devices)
- Support for split screen multitasking (on compatible devices)

Funny thing happening to me, every time I click on the link it sends me to his one page site that freezes my browser. :huh:

 

I did find it at the iTunes store though here.

Thanks for the heads up Brett, the link still works for me but I think there must be some scripting going on to rotate some screenshots, not all browsers like this ;)

Hello JG.

 

My android skills are pretty much just in the "fixing small defects" range, so I'm not able to create a quality Android app. I've proposed to a work collegue that works on Android full time to create a version, with my blessing and all the support I could give him, but since the iOS app is not selling very well, he isn't motivated to do it.

 

If it does take off sometime in the future, I'll try again to get him on board.
