FlyQ EFB from Seattle Avionics is the #1 rated aviation app because it makes your flying easier and safer by thoughtfully integrating powerful features in a way that minimizes the number of screen taps and increases readability (e.g. larger fonts for older eyes). Watch this video to get started quickly!
Reasonably priced annual VFR subscriptions for $69, IFR + VFR for $139 plus support for more than 15 different ADS-B systems doesn't hurt either!
FlyQ EFB 3.0 is a MAJOR release that adds iPhone support to FlyQ EFB so you can fly using just your phone! It also adds a comprehensive flight data recorder and the Augmented Reality feature from FlyQ InSight.
The data recorder automatically starts and stops recording, can optionally display a breadcrumbs layer (called Flight Track) to show where you've flown, can export tracks as GPX for use in other apps (like Cloud Ahoy and Google Maps), can send a graphical summary of your flight to Facebook or Twitter, and can even playback a track within FlyQ EFB itself! Student pilots can email flight track to their CFIs and the CFIs can view and play then back from within FlyQ EFB itself!
