  • Weather doesn't download at all now

    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

    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

    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.
  • Very impressive

    A little bit of a learning curve, but once you get it the interface is far better than any other efb. Definitely worth it.

    This is a good app. I would like to see that ability to navigate by lat/long coordinates. Also in Hiltons tutorial he shows flying at an altitude of 3000 and flying under a class B shelf, but the lower right display indicates he is in Class B airspace. Not correct. Also the stacked airspace notifications are incorrect. Newer versions may have fixed this and if so, I am sorry for the 3 star. Good features and good app but wrong info is just bad news in our business.
  • Great app but bugs introduced frequently

    I've been using the app for 6 months now and love it and certainly wouldn't be without it. But it would be nice if the constant improvements didn't sometimes kill functionality. Recently I had a problem (now fixed) where my own location wouldn't appear - very disconcerting. And now in the latest version, it's no longer calculating fuel and time usage, even with the parameters entered. Update - I just worked out the issue. The new version, 8.6.9 calculates times based on altitude. If the altitude you enter doesn't make sense (I had 1,000 feet when the elevation was higher), it won't calculate it. Remove the altitude, as for the no wind case, and it works fine.
  • Love it

    Does so many things VFR and IFR, lots of handy, functional little shortcuts to make it easier to use in realtime. The only suggestion I'd have to add would be to overlay sigmets/convective sigmets/airmets over the chart in real time. That would be a lot easier than flipping between this and skyvector.
  • You have tried the rest, now try the best

    Used them all but keep coming back to WingX - even better now with the Replay feature. There were first SV, split screen, ZAON and ADSB traffic support, geo ref taxi diagrams as part of the base price, none of this basis versus pro nonsense, just great features for one low price. 100% recommend this - dont drink the kool-aid the others try and make you drink !! Update 8/4/16 - WingX supports a LOT of ADB-S in solutions, including the home built Stratux. Why pay more for the same features on other apps when ALL FEATURES are included in the one price
  • The best EFB in the AppStore.

    There's a lot of options in the EFB space these days, but for me, WingX is the clear leader when it comes to introducing innovative new features. It also continues to have the best interface for actual in-cockpit use. If you are VFR only, the WingX basic subscription includes many features Brand F and Brand G reserve for their premium subscriptions making WingX great value to boot.
  • Beats Foreflight in feature by feature

    I have been using this app for more than five years and know it well, many of my fellow pilots show me Foreflight and I show them features that I would not fly without. The biggest is the split screen, I can have my sectional or ifr chart on one screen and an approach plate on the other with geo reference of my plane on both. If you fly ifr, is is the best app out there. Download it and give it a try. You will love it.
