  • Great customer support

    By Klanceb
    Excellent app. Far better than Garmin Pilot that I used to use. Customer support is awesome.

  • 5 Star App, 6 Star Customer Service

    By WardHolbrook
    I’ve been using ForeFlight for several years now and the app has always been at the forefront of innovation and usefulness. If it doesn’t quite have everything you could possibly want, just wait a bit, it will probably be in the next update. As for their customer service, it cannot get any better. Problems are few are far between, but when they arise their customer service team is on top of it. Case in point, we had a pop up trip to Mexico and their Mexico/Latin America rep Albert has not only helped me with getting the proper subscriptions, he as also helped us other solving some pilot certification issues with the Mexican authorities. Great App, Great People, you cant ask for more than that.
  • iPhone X support

    Need to support the larger screen size of iPhone X. It doesn’t fill up the entire screen! Hopefully you update it soon!

  • IPhone X support?

    By thephotoguy94
    Great app. Not updated for the new iPhone X yet. And an idea is to make a perfectly dark color mode to take advantages of the oled and save battery. Appreciate what you guys are doing. Thanks.
  • Good, but not compatible enough

    By Fadi - Great app!
    Great app, but doesn’t support AHRS from my Stratux ADS-B. There are other great EFBs out there that are more compatible with different ADS-B units like Stratux, and have almost all the features of ForeFlight (including AHRS display), and a bit cheaper. If ForeFlight starts supporting AHRS from my Stratux box, I would renew my subscription with them (I’d be willing to pay the extra $$ for such a great app). One of the nice features ForeFlight has is the integration with Jeppesen charts. PLEASE add AHRS support for Stratux! :)
  • Great app. Please update for iPhone X

    By b-lake624
    Great app. iPhone X support would be 5 stars.
  • This is the best customer support ever

    By BigandLittlefans
    Barry knew I was local and took the time to sit with me and explain the ins and outs of logbook. who would not have an app like this when customer support comes to you. I highly recommend foreflight.
  • Excellent support

    By BobThePilot
    I recently renewed my subscription after a few year hiatus from flying, during which I acquired a couple of new devices. I had a few quirks in getting the user data to synchronize between devices and the ForeFlight support team was incredibly responsive and helpful. Definitely the best software/app support experience I have had in many years.
