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!
