Droid Apps

Postby rcigliano » Mon Mar 01, 2010 3:09 pm

I am looking to change cell phone plans and would love to get an iPhone but I don't hear very good things about AT&T coverage. So I am considering going to Verizon and wait for the iPhone to come. Unfortunately, it looks like it will not be on Verizon until 2011.

So my question is, are there any good Droid aviation apps?

I know ForeFlight has one app but I don't know of any others.

There's not many. Other than the one from ForeFligh, I've found the following:

1. FLTPLAN.com
2. Aviation Weather

Using the browser you can access all of the usual web sites. For now, that's all I've got.

Wow - sorry I missed this. I have the Motorola Driod from Verizon. It uses Andriod 2.0, but an upgrade to 2.1 is just around the corner.

Here's a list of Andoid Aviation apps that I've compiled. I don't use them all (The Garmin one is a whopping $130) but was compiling a list for http://aviatorandroidapp.com, a review site that I've been working on getting up and running.
  • Aviation Weather
  • AirWX Aviation Weather
  • Avilution QuickWeather
  • Aviation Weather from NOAA/NWS
  • FlightPanel
  • UTC Time (beta)
  • myUTC Clock Widget +World
  • ForeFlight Weather
  • TAFs and Metars
  • Avilution Checklists
  • Zulu Time Desktop Widget
  • Aircraft N-Number Search
  • d2c Checklist
  • YAWS SuperPhone
  • Pilot My-Cast 8 by Garmin
  • Avilution E6B Flight Computer
  • Gaggle
  • GPS Logbooks for Android
  • Aircraft Weight and Balance
  • GeoSMS
  • Avilution Weight and Balance
I've been running an Android phone for about a year and half now and love it. Don't love that iPhone is getting all the development love these days though. We need to do what we can to encourage more development for this rapidly growing phone platform!
