Apps for the non-iPhone/Pad user

Postby pevend » Thu Jul 15, 2010 7:39 am

I'm due for a new phone in the immediate future, but I'm kind of married to Verizon (it's the only carrier I can receive at work and it has the best coverage where I live). Any good Windows Mobile (don't laugh!) or Android aviation apps available that would make it worthwhile paying the $30 per month for a smartphone?

Having had no bites on this one for a month, I did some research myself and found that you can get Foreflight weather, Avilution Quickweather, AirWX Aviation Weather, and Pilot My-Cast Weather in the Android app store. Anybody used any of these (probably in some other form)?

I have used ForeFlight on my iPod, and I think it is one of the better aviation apps out there. I'm not sure how the quality translates over to the Android

I have the HTC Eris ad use AirWX Aviation Weather and love it. I also have Scanner Radio which I have added streams from LiveATC.net and EAA Radio as custom scanners. This is my favorite app.

Other "Aviation" apps that I have is FlightTools E6b, Weatherbug, AirReg (too look up the N-number of the funky looking plane on the ramp so I know what it is), Aviation Weather from NOAA/NWS, SunriseSunset and UTC TIme.

Hope this helps.
