Smile EFB Survey

There are so many EFB programs out now that it would be interesting to start a survey as to what the masses are using. Like a table that list the EFBs and you vote by selecting the one you are using.

I might be wrong but I think one of the moderators have to begin this but if not I sure don't know how to make the list up so it counts as people vote the one they use. With the hope that someone will do this.....

First we need a listing of the EFB apps or devices with integral software that people use to include in the list. I'll start....I am using Foreflight. Those posting a reply please don't repeat EFB names already mentioned.

AvPlan by far!

Not just one country available either. Including the USA.

Designed by pilots, owned by pilots and they are VERY reactive to input from customers.

I can't endorse this enough.

Buy the App, pick the subscriptions you need. The USA has VFR and IFR options, and you can add more.

I am using Avplan, but on an android tablet, so it is not the full setup yet. Where I live and fly out of there is very poor phone reception, so to work properly I need an extarnal GPS to tell the tablet where I am.
Wit IPad the full Avplan is really good.

ForeFlight is by far the biggest seller.

Others are Garmin Pilot and WingX.

Keep them coming. I think I figured out how to make up a poll and will attempt to do so when we get more responses.

My wife uses Foreflight on an Ipad, I use the other half of the Foreflight subscription on my Iphone, and Avare on a Nexus 7 tablet.

Default EFB survey

I have been using Foreflight since it came out and I love it. The flight planning section is great. I also like the ability to superimpose an approach plate on the moving map.

That said, I also have Garmin Pilot. It has improved considerably over the last year or two. I am going to have to switch to Garmin Pilot for compatibility with my all Garmin panel upgrade I am doing now.

I hate to maintain two licenses and subscriptions but I just can't make up my mind yet.
