I did a poll last week on the AOPA Facebook page asking members to name one—and only one—iPhone/iPad/Android aviation-related app they could not live without and why. This will become a regular feature; below are the first five. These are not endorsements of any app.
Look for AOPA FlyQ EFB, released this week and available for a free 30-day trial, to join the list soon.
That’s what I have for this week. If you have any iPad/iPhone/Android apps you think I should review in the upcoming months, please pass them along to me here. And thanks to you all for the kind notes!

FAA Information and Services,
The FAA encourages pilots to do a number of things in order to increase safety, but does not require them. Check out these three actions that are recommended.
Over the past several weeks, the Air Safety Institute has observed a cluster of general aviation accidents occurring in close succession. The Air Safety Institute recommends that GA pilots conduct a pre-holiday safety pause and risk review. See these safety steps to take before your next flight.
A ForeFlight update to version 6.4 also updates a connected Stratus ADS-B receiver, enabling a new flight data recording feature.
