Just a quick technical note about approach plates in ForeFlight Mobile 3 for this post.
We have recently made changes to reduce the file size of the plates. These smaller plates are available in the Downloads view now – no software update required.
This change has quite a few benefits we hope our customers will enjoy:
- 3x smaller file size means:
- 3x faster downloading
- 3x faster installing
- 1/3 the disk space needed
- Plates can be zoomed in further than before, making smaller parts of the approach easier to see
- Plates load and zoom in/out faster than before, especially on older iPhones
We will continue to make lots of little improvements like this as we move forward! Every little detail counts!
