Amazingly complex yet easy to use

5
ForeFlight has become an indispensable flying aid, despite already having a glass cockpit in my plane. I often use it during flight to make small changes to my fight plan and then push it up to the Garmin. The only time I really put it away is just before landing. On the ground, I use it to check weather for the day or future flights, plan flight segments, watch other planes’ approaches into new airports I’m considering, manage my logbook... I can’t even imagine doing without ForeFlight.

Recent changes for the worse

2
Longtime ForeFlight user since days when it was free. Slide over displays recently introduced are very distracting and causes appearance of display to jump around. I appreciate the desire to make it more useful but this one is 2 steps backward. Please ForeFlight- don’t make me switch.

Would have been a 5....

I love ForeFlight, and until the last update, it was a solid “5” for me. The new sidebar feature with the animated map shift is a huge setback in functionality and user friendliness. Please disable this feature, or at least give the user the option to do so.

Recent changes poorly done

3
Long time user. Recent changes to airport popup dialog causing resizing and movement of map are visually jarring. After years of teaching and ifr use, now mostly for std briefings, ads-b traffic & metars, and close navigation through airspace. Reviewing the many alternatives.

Excellent support

5
I was impressed by the speed and responsiveness of the support team. My inquiry about updating airplane performance profile was answered within minutes on Sunday morning. Needless to say that ForeFlight is the best thing that happened to GA in the last 10 years.

Great product better service

I got back into flying after a ten year break. ForeFlight was not around when I quit flying. Now that I’m back I find it a fantastic tool. Better than their tool the customer service is absolutely second to none.

ForeFlight’s awesome support

5
As part of the Civil Air Patrol becoming part of the Total Force, we’ve been given many tasks that the military or contractors used to do. Recently, the USAF included CAP in their ForeFlight contract. That means we no longer had to self fund this portion of our volunteer support. Even better than that has been ForeFlight Customer Support in this transition. From refunding recently paid subscriptions, to working the account conversations, any concern was resolved in minutes...each time. With lots of morale numbing tasks in flying CAP, this initiative, and especially painless transition, really helps. Both the folks at NHQ CAP, and especially the ForeFlight customer service, have just been awesome.

This is the best darn flight app out there.

You would not believe how much work load is taken off your hands when you use Foreflight. It is for all intents and purposes a handheld MFD that gives every weather update that you can think of, shows where you are on VFR and IFR charts, pairs with all ads-b antennas, allows you to file flight plans, find and contact FBOs, get all information about an airport in large easy to read presentations, find instrument approach plates in seconds, and can even function as an emergency ahrs if all else fails if you have the right equipment. I’ve had my students use the paper books and charts and then use my ForeFlight app and they find the answer I’m asking them to find in less than 1/2 the time. I’ve had this since I started my private training and I’ve been grateful ever since. A true lifesaver in IFR training, and the ability to pair with ADS-B portable antennas cut my close calls out in busy flight training airspace down to 0. Love this little app. Buy it. It’s worth every penny.

Amazing support early on a Saturday morning

5
Struggled to decode an obscure METAR RMK section at 0530 on a Saturday morning. Though FF doesn’t yet decode the RMK section, Zach responded within an hour and a half, decided for me, provided me the complete glossary doc from NWS where he worked prior to FF writing these, and then provided even greater detail into the weather conditions that typically generate UP designations. FF support started out great all those years ago, and somehow has continued to improve from that high bar since. Super job folks, and thanks!!

Todd from pilot support

5
Great customer service from Todd. Very quick with the replies and very helpful when I had issues. Have to admit at first I was somewhat against ForeFlight due to being stationed over seas and knowing the price. But after using the trail and playing around with the app, it is truly a must have and again thanks to Todd, I am sold once the trail is up.
