Well, great program but you do have to pay $9.95 for it to work. Also, there is a display bug, please fix and i will give 5 stars

No trial period but the full version lets you click that you have tried the trial version.
Atleast this works for xplane 9. Shycharts pro will crash when connected via WiFi. This app works great via WiFi.
Love this. Very handy for my IFR flights.
Ignore kiddy comments below.just try it,it tells you demo on app
Again you waste everyone's time engaging in some perverse form of chat instead of fixing the description. Your behaviour is quite unprofessional.
This is terrible... useless... waste of digital space... proves some ideas are best left on the napkin...
Thanks to FSWidgets for the update. A great app that just keeps getting better. Jeremy "rightseater" Fletcher
I haven't used this app and I'm installing after this comment is posted. Developers should never insult the people who use their apps.
I would give this 5 stars if it showed tracks. Don't know why it doesn't, plane finder seems to be able to do it. It might be fun to see other AI.
