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!
