The latest version of ForeFlight Mobile is now available for download at the App Store. This update – the second of the year – brings a more powerful mapping system with track up and north up orientations. Maps now fly on newer hardware and even perform better on the original iPad. ForeFlight also refreshed the iPhone app, providing pilots a choice between two menu styles: a “Slider” style, for those who prefer a way to quickly switch between views; and a “Grid” style, for those who prefer the Classic ForeFlight menu style.
Other recent ForeFlight news include the release of its Military Flight Bay extension for military aviators, and ForeFlight’s inclusion in Frontier Airlines Electronic Flight Bag program (www.foreflight.com).
