Well, now that the hard part of actually releasing the software is out of the way I can start working on adding some new features to the app. I’ve had some requests for improvements to the Air Speed Indicator especially the GA indicator. Currently it’s in intervals of 25 and the request is for intervals of 20 so I’ll be updating that as well as improving the look of the gauge.
I’ll also be adding some improvements to the GPS mode. I have a bunch of data that I can overlay on the map about the next waypoint. Magnetic Bearing to Waypoint, ETE, Distance, Name, etc. I’ll be working on a way to make that information visible.
I’ve also had a bunch of other awesome requests. Some of them are:
- A night mode
- 7 inch tablet support
- Phone support
- Support for toggling plane tracking north along with the current tracking mode.
- Support for more map types like Sectionals and World Navigational maps
I also plan to do another app that I’m currently calling FlightGauges. I already have 4 of the 6 major gauges and I’ve had several requests for an app that just does that. This is on my radar to start work on after I’ve made some improvements to FlightMap.
As always keep feature requests coming. I’m monitoring the various forums and keeping track of all the awesome feedback. Thanks so much for the support
