Can’t login to use it

1
I can’t login using the trial period. It won’t come off the login screen. Too much crap on this screen. There is no Login button. I deleted it since I couldn’t get pass the confusing login screen.

Great EFB!

I’ve been using WingX since 2012, and it meets ALL my flying needs and more. Can’t say enough good things about this program. Thank you to Hilton Software for supporting military and CFIs by making this app FREE to them; IMHO, this a company worth supporting because of their displayed values.

Disappointed

2
I’ve been using WingX for many years now but their development has really fallen down. After one of their major releases about a year ago, I needed to buy a new iPad to get their software to run. Also, the FAA added lightening strikes, icing, airmets, and other helpful weather info to their FIS-B broadcasts over 2 years ago I believe and WingX still is not able to show that information. Are you serious? To my mind WingX and Foreflight were the top EFB choices but now WingX is just another also ran-ran.

Does the job

5
Fast and stable. I use 1800wxbrief for flight planning anyway so that feature, while below gp and ff, is not an issue. Could use W&B though.

Pleasantly surprised

Extremely pleasant Lee surprised the features of this software reset the flow routing information on the left-hand side with the add and subtract routes dp, stars etc. very user-friendly. Works great when given stars in route, routing or changes in DP’s on the fly.

Didn’t track at all in flight

1
I messed with it and learned how to use it on the ground and then took it flying, not once would it track us on the ground or in the air. Wasn’t even close to being accurate on the airport diagram either. Used on an iPad.

Have been using WINGX VFR/IFR App for +13 years

Poor customer service and support

2
I was a long time user(12 years). Product worked well for the price. Recently upgraded to IFR and paid a 3 year subscription. On a 1200 mile cross country my weather would not work so I called “tech support “. Told them I was available for 2 days to fix the problem before my return flight. No solution and then they quit answering the phone and my emails. After return flight with no weather, I get some emails from the owner of the app trying to help. Still no joy. I asked for refund, no response. Do yourself a favor and use another EFB other than WingX!

Great App!

5
-Recommend Take Off mins sorted by airport ident (like in aero app), time consuming to page to all the take off -1 -2 etc to find the airport needed. -Recommend Dod flip data for Korea (and world PAA, EEA, etc). I have to switch back to aero app every time I deploy. -Add AHRS / HUD / synth vision for aero app. -I have to carry aero and wingx both to get all the features I need please cross level between the two apps or have a DOD setting / database for military wingx users who have NGA accounts. Thanks for a great product. Truly awesome.

Ten years

I have used wing x for ten years exclusively every day. For the past 6 months the weather radar has been inoperative on the map view.I have contacted support seven times about the issue. It’s still not working. My friends maps aren’t working either they are all going to foreflight. Please help!
