    Love this efb. Great for weather planning and has the same or better nav and situational awareness capabilities as the competing apps. No brainer for student pilots as the cost is so low. You get all of the functionality of the high priced options on other apps at a much lower cost. Continually gets improved. You can get open source ADS B devices to get real time info in the cockpit for a few hundred bucks.
  • Best App for Weather!

    I love Aerovie. It costs less than half of ForeFlight and does almost just as much, and when it comes to weather, it does significantly more. The vertical profile tool is very beneficial for a lower time pilot like myself, as it helps me see and dissect possible en route weather in an easy, but thorough manner. More pilots need to be flying with Aerovie!

    I'd give it five stars, however, the app keeps closing on me whenever I try to view a route from a zoomed out view. Seems to be a relatively recent issue too, possible bug that can hopefully be fixed with an update. Also, weather illustrations could be better. Looking at a prog chart to get an idea for upcoming weather is like looking at a pixelated outdated chart, same with icing illustration on the overlay menu. It's competitive with foreflight to an extent. One great feature that could make Aerovie really stand out is incorporating the option to select "ATC Preferred routes" when it comes to IFR flying much like foreflight does, working on weather overlay graphics/visuals, and possibly incorporating the ability to draw text on the plates or charts as reminders, outlining taxi routes on an airport diagram, or circling important portions of an approach/DP plate. EDIT: Looks like there was an update available and I did not notice it until after sending this - I'll give it five stars due to the fact that the developer seems to have caught this bug relatively quick! For what it's worth, the app is great, just my .02 on what I think could be improved upon. Merely constructive criticism, nothing more :)
  • I wish I could change the units of measurement.

    I really like the features in this app. I’m still trying to get used to the interface. My complaint is not being able to change the units of measurement. I’d like to use mph over knots since that is how my AI reads and to stay consistent with that I’d like to be able to view SM vs KM. Maybe in a future release?
  • Excellent App

    From time to time there might be a small glitch BUT if the developer hasn't already noticed it all you have to do is send him an email and he gets on it as fast as possible. Very user friendly and great customer support make this app the one for privates to pro's. If there is something you need answered about Aerovie just ask and the response time is usually pretty quick. Excellent app indeed Clint M.
  • Some nice features but clunky interface

    The vertical weather profile is it's best feature. But pinching does not work as expected, at one point hanging during 1.3X resize. I like that it starts queuing up approach charts when airports are added to your flightplan. But trying to create a flightplan was frustrating experience: The map kept resetting me centered on current location. Im trying to rubber the flight path and keep getting thrown back. Could not find a way to query individual airspace, it just gives me a long list of every one on the chart. Be nice to get a vertical profile of those as well. Could not add airways. I personally like text and cascading menus, the symbolic buttons doesn't work for me. And I watch a video, it shows buttons on the bottom, I never could figure out how to get to that screen.
  • Freezes up and quirky. Don't waste money.

    The route vertical weather profile is the best part about this app...if you can get to it. The rest is garbage. Slow and hangs up a lot. Database downloads are quirky. The longer the planned route, the worse it seems to be. Good idea but needs a lot of work. Can't believe they can charge money for this.
  • Do not think twice!

    This is a fabulous app, full of resources and information. Very comprehensive and user friendly. If you are thinking twice, think no more. Download and start using it. You will not regret. Amazing development!
  • Watch out Foreflight!

    I used to subscribe to Foreflight and in the beginning they were clearly innovative. However, over the years that innovation has seemed to stagnate and the value added diminish. In using Aerovie I've been more than impressed with the feature set. One of the most valuable capabilities has been the graphical weather depiction that the software provides. This with the price point provides what I believe an equal if not greater value option than Foreflight.
