ForeFlight Mobile EFB App Reviews

  • Outstanding Support

    By EA500 Pilot
    The app itself is indeed excellent, with new updates continuously bringing new valuable features. But what really makes the app shine is the outstanding support. While lack of a phone number to contact may at first seem disappointing, I can assure anyone that if you send a support question via email or their contact form, you always get a response within an amazingly short period of time. I seem to find myself requesting help every 12-18 months or so. And every time I get a quick response, and they stick with me until it’s resolved. ForeFlight support is among the best of any app I’ve experienced!
  • Use to love it

    Foreflight use to be one of the best apps out there. However, as they keep adding features the program has become intolerably slow and buggy. Frequent crashing and hang ups on screens at the most inopportune times. Wish there were options to remove all the superfluous features and concentrate on the original. The inability to use jepp charts is also a major problem. Foreflight...... stop the bloat, get rid of the bugs and add some decent support. Good luck trying to get an answer from support.
  • My best Co-pilot

    ForeFlight became my best friend when I started back in the air after 20+ years. Amazing. Now it makes me look like a genius in all aspects-briefing-approaches-weather-routes-filing....you name it. And on top of that, team@forflight is all over any request with the needed answers or advice. Thank you ForeFlight, I do not fly without you. Mac, CMEL.
  • Great app to use

    I have one problem when I plan a flight that is 240nm how is that a short flight and I get an error saying it a short flight
  • Fast search is anything but fast

    With the addition of “fast search” FF just became extremely slow and not very user friendly. In rare cases it would be helpful to see available choices but there needs to be a work around too. If you want to type out an IFR clearance in the Maps tab the continuously updating search function makes it impossible to type out a route, your keypad inputs are skipped while the search is running. Even copy/paste seems impacted and rarely works from an outside app or email. When receiving a PDC clearance or a filed flight plan route via email there has to be a way to ‘import’ a route with a quick copy/paste. Unfortunately the FLP edit tab doesn’t allow a workaround for copy/paste either. There either needs to be a setting to turn off fast search or it has to go away altogether.
  • Current version is infuriating

    By Herman the Kid
    The app has always worked well until this last update with the active search for previous flight plans constantly gumming up the keyboard entries. I can’t tell you how many times in the last few weeks I’ve had to rewrite the entire route due to missed letters and numbers. You used to be able to just search previous routes as a separate function, but now it’s rammed down your throat and forces you to either tp le hs or t y p e l i k e t h i s to I put your route. The annoying and entirely pointless feature needs to be reverted to the old, separate search. Don’t think to yourself “this asshat must be using an iPhone 3GS to get such crappy lags!” No, I’m using an iPhone X, and this crap is ridiculous.
  • Essential

    I have used ForeFlight for several years flying mostly a Cessna 414. I am in the process of upgrading to a Conquest II and have moved to the performance plus module. I really enjoy everything it has to offer. Great tool and some of the best customer support I have had the pleasure to work with.
  • Excellent for flight training

    Helped so much for my PPL a and even more so for instrument flights. Be careful not to use as a crutch
  • A great start but hold on to your Garmin!

    Foreflight is the best of the iPad apps, but still not the full service go-to navigation device. I'll up my rating to 5* when bread crumbing is added so that a pilot can find his way out of a canyon when the weather closes in. This is a valuable safety feature and found on Garmin. Foreflight has been promising it for years but never delivers. They think logbook enhancements are more important than safety if flight items!
