Just some test-results with the actual app after some flights:
- Battery consumption still above most of the other apps. Fun thing is that battery consumption seems to be related to some circumstances I yet wasn't able to determinate…"
As I have stated previously on this forum: Jeppesen had their chances. They had more chances than any other software I know.
They didn't take one.
How much they actually care about their users shows already on this forum (that is NOT…"
I had a look at EVFR, as well. It seems to be a complete solution. The only thing I don't like is the looks.
But maybe I should have a look again...
For me, JFDVFR is an experiment. If it works out at least in some ways I will stick…"
The Point you bring with GAFOR is a good one... although for me the METAR that is displayed en-route is fair enough... at least at the moment. GAFOR would be cool though.
For the W&B Part... I know other apps do have this - but I…"
Yes and no.
No, we can't blame jeppesen for problems that have physical origins. But, on the other hand, yes, we can blame them.
Other apps do not have the problem during flight. And Jeppesen App uses much more juice than other apps…"
That's good news. I will keep an eye on the app and reconsider next year in july what I will do next. If it's still in its current state I might not renew it. If I see an improvement (i.e. the crucial features coming in) I will stick…"
As I said: I really like the completeness of data (and the prewarnings etc.) The data provided is better than in any other app currently existing IMHO.
But... the app is missing some crucial features.
I dearly hope you are applying ISO Standards... Still: Just because you use standards for quality management / code management doesn't mean that the app is efficient. One thing has nothing to do with the other. The cpu usage must have a…"
as my iPad is without simcard it can't be the download at this point (wifi is even switched off in flight).
Just have a look. The 20% battery per hour is annoying, sure. But there's a workaround for it. I'd rather focus on…"
As I have told.... 73min Airtime, a little over 1h block, 2 legs... battery was down to 82%
It consumes massively more when flying - flight planning is not really a problem. I think the GPS / Moving Map function eats the power in the end.…"
If you have a look at the picture the original poster attached you get what I mean, I think.
I am very aware that iPad et. al. are consumer products and as such not 100% reliable. Still, if you offer a product for an app you should try to…"
"As much as I like the image... it reminds me of some laurel & hardy sketch. It's a perfect solution for a problem that should (must!) not exist in the first place.
In addition, not all aircrafts have a vent located that close... try doing…"
That's one of the points I really like: The app data is really current and up2date, although it is not too detailed (especially in sweden, but even in switzerland you'll find some very big gaps between named cities... if you know…"
