In my ever-growing file of apps to review, I have a section for apps that don’t fall under any of my specific categories (including flight training, charts and maps, logbooks, flight trackers, flight planning, and weather, to name a few) but I feel are still relevant for pilots. So this week, AOPA takes a look at five “general” aviation apps. These are not endorsements of any app.
To my Android users: I hear you loud and clear on wanting to see more of your apps reviewed in this column, and I hope you noticed what was offered this week. I’m on the iOS platform, so I still need you to send in your Android app picks. Please pass them along to me here. And if you’ve missed the apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012, you can see the complete list in AOPA’s online archive. And keep those comments and suggestions coming!

Giving an injured U.S. Marine a taste of the freedom of flight set a Mississippi pilot on a course to do much more.
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.
Among the very first lessons a pilot learns is that a control yoke is not a steering wheel. Research underway in Europe could change that.
