ForeFlight, in an exciting partnership with Coradine Aviation Systems today released a major new service for users of Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch: LogTen Mobile.
LogTen Mobile provides seamless integration with Coradine’s pilot logbook software, LogTen Pro, allowing pilots to keep their logbook up to date as well as monitor currency requirements, duty limits, and certificate status all on their iPhone! The system leverages web technologies to deliver unprecedented ease of use and allows users to sync their data with an iPhone or iPod Touch wirelessly – without ever having to plug it in.
LogTen Mobile is available now – click here for full product details. Visit today to sign up for a free trial and use the service for seven days before committing to a subscription at US$39/year.
Recent rumors about the next firmware update for the iPhone (1.1.3) appear more and more legitimate as we move into the new year. Among other nice features, iPhone users should be able to create bookmarks on the home screen (also called the springboard).
This means that ForeFlight iPhone Edition users will finally be able to create a button on the home screen to bring up ForeFlight!
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more – hopefully this 1.1.3 firmware will meet/exceed the rumors and be released soon!
Explaining how a software application works is a challenge. So often, the core differences between one application and another can only be revealed by experiencing both applications. We were craving a way to help pilots experience ForeFlight, and one of the most talented crews in aviation video production helped us out. So, sit back, relax and enjoy our first ForeFlight commercial!
Thanks to Jason Miller and the OnTheFlightLine crew!
Apple made a welcomed announcement today: they will be releasing an iPhone software development kit (SDK) in February!
An SDK for iPhone is very exciting news. This means that we can deliver you a version of ForeFlight you can load right onto your home screen. Then, you can access ForeFlight wherever you are!
Jason Miller, producer of The Finer Points – not to be confused with ForeFlight’s own Jason Miller – is one of the most creative individuals in the aviation community. He sings, instructs, and produces one of the most listened to aviation podcast on the web. Simply inspiring.
Since we are avid listeners of The Finer Points podcast, we wanted to be able to pull up an episode easily from our iPhones. So, now you can get The Finer Points podcast direct from ForeFlight by clicking on the “fun” link at the top of the welcome screen. If you’re in the FBO waiting for some weather to clear, hop on over to ForeFlight and listen to an episode.
ForeFlight was also mentioned during Aviation Safety Session #17, which you can listen to here or access directly from The Finer Points home page.
