Improvements to approach plates

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 Рno 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!
