  • Really love this program

    I took a four year hiates from flying and got back into it again last year. I had the best of avionics including a Garman 430. This program is really better in many respects and Only requires an iPad and a GPS transmitter. I'm only flying vfr now but could not have done the flights I have done in the busy northeast corrider weaving my way around different air spaces. It's a great GPS and has many many other functions that I don't really use. I Love this program. thank you PS I got my IFR currency and love using the approach plates. Especially like the Geo referencing so I can see my plane's exact position as I do an approach. I have no problems with slow redraw rate or anything else. Support has been excellent. Program has everything – flight planning, E6B, IFR and VFR for maps, approach plates, Airport information, and weather. Just got ADS-B– from Open Flight and am looking forward to using it on my iPad to display weather and other aircraft. Great program thank you
  • It's a toy for pretend pilots

    Too much silliness in this app. Very cumbersome to use in flight. no easy to use magenta line manipulation while route planning or diversions for that matter. No FARS But you can pretend you are a stealth fighter...wow! Stick with Garmin or Foreflight.
  • Great flight app. Easier than foreflight

    Great app. Ive been a user for 4 years and continue to try the competition. This is the most intuitive, easy to use flying app. Less clicks per flight as well. Should be 5 stars.
  • Best EFB

    Hands down, WingX is simply the best. Great company, friendly support.
  • Almost great

    I have only used FltPlnGo and this app, and there are many features of this app I prefer. I will use this for in cockpit backup over FltPlnGo, but will use the other for flight planning purposes. The only useage issue I am having right now is finding how to turn on the breadcrumb trails. Is this even an option?
  • Tried several EFBs. Still looking.

    I've evaluated and used many EFBs. This one should be free and then "maybe" I would renew my subscription. For some reason They just do not seem to be supporting WingX anymore. New features and fixes seem to take a VERY long time. Foreflight seems to be supported much better however having compatibility issues. Still looking...
  • Maps constantly redraw. Very annoying.

    By Pilot011
    Maps will not pan smoothly. Reposition, zoom or pan a map and must wait for the map to redraw. Continuous screen flicker as maps redraw almost makes the app unusable. Same happens with any map layer selected. Using other apps until this gets fixed. Use with caution!
  • Weather doesn't download at all now

    By Jdieujufuuhioehwjeo
    I use this app on a daily basis, after the most recent update (which was supposed to fix the weather not auto updating) the weather doesn't update AT ALL. Obviously this is a huge problem, and as a long time customer of WingX I'm beginning to seriously consider making the switch to foreflight. These little bugs that we are still dealing with are absolutely ridiculous.
  • Constant crashes lately

    1
    By Sr Maestro
    I'm not sure if it's because of a recent update or some changes they made but the app is completely unstable on three different devices I tried it on. In the last 2 weeks it went from AWESOME to totally unreliable and downright dangerous for any IFR use! Lets see if they fix it quick?!?!?
  • Misses traffic other apps display

    By N650Q
    I have found WingX Pro misses traffic that displays accurately on FreeFlight System's ADS-B View app, and also on ForeFlight. I have the FreeFlight Rangr 978 UAT transceiver, so have ADS-B Out/In in my Bonanza, and should get all traffic available, not just partial traffic. I find I do receive more targets with the other apps mentioned above. I reported this problem to the tech team in the past and sent screenshots, but Jim stated they could not replicate the problem. I thought, OK, maybe the range or some other circumstances caused the problem, but this morning as I visually observed a Cessna pass about 1000 ft above me that WingX did not show, but after switching to check with the other apps mentioned and did see that traffic displayed, I am no longer going to use WingX.
