Updates for the faithful!

Updated the FAA database used by the application. Again, we keep the database on your device so you don't have to turn on your device radios to benefit from AFD.  All it needs is GPS.

Some folks have wisely asked - "Why can't I just press an update button and get the updated FAA database".  Great idea!  The reality is this is a free app and we just don't generate enough revenue to pay for a cloud service to host these and provide them.  We will keep this in the hopper of good ideas in case we can find a way to make it happen.

Another frequent question is "Why can't I search for an airport".  That's easier to solve.  We're evaluating this as part of a paid version of AFD.

Hope you get value from AFD and please shoot us a note with any suggestions or stories you have while using AFD!

Enjoy the skies!

Updates and Questions

Added ATIS per popular request and updated the underlying FAA database.

Many folks request the ability to SEARCH for airports.  Considering adding this.  Wondering - would you pay for that?  The revenue from the app is not significant with an ad-based model.

How much would you pay?


What else would you want to see in the app to justify paying something for it?
