Release version 1.1.3 is now available on iTunes. This version is a minor release to enable MobileFD VFR to function appropriately with Apple iOS7. Please be sure to upgrade MobileFD VFR to version 1.1.3 prior to upgrading to Apple iOS7. Let us know if you have any questions.
Dear Mobile FliteDeck VFR User,
Within the next few days, Apple will offer an operating system update to iOS 7 on your iPad.
In an effort to minimize any impact to your existing Mobile FliteDeck VFR application, we have made the appropriate adjustments to the app and submitted it to Apple for approval, which should occur within the next few days.
Unfortunately, as soon as you upgrade to iOS 7 and open Mobile FliteDeck VFR version 1.1.2, the application will…

after a lot of good live flight experience (over 8 hours) with Mobile FliteDeck VFR I would like to post my enhancement ideas for the Dev team of Jeppesen.
Unfortunately I'm not a Beta tester, so my enhancement ideas are based on the currently published release of the flite deck version.
Here is the list of enhancement ideas:
SO, I LOG INTO THE JEPPESEN SITE, PAY MY 49.95 FOR THIS INCREASINGLY WORTHLESS APPLICATION, AND **NO WHERE** **NO WHERE** AFTER TAKING MY MONEY FOR THE VFR MOBILE FLIGHT DECK DOES IT SAY WHERE TO DOWNLOAD OR TAKE ME THE APPLE SITE! THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST PURCHASING EXPERIENCE I HAVE HAD. AND FURTHERMORE JEPPESEN DOES NOT EVEN HIS ITS ACT TOGETHER ENOUGH TO ALLOW ONE TO ***BUY FROM APPLE!!!!***
THINK TWICE ABOUT BUYING THIS FROM THEM.
OF COURSE NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS…Continue
I would suggest, if you're going to say this is available, that you
try actually putting it into the app store. Only a product from GMBH is
there! Also, having registered with Jeppesen, my name (btw is this
my full name or email address or what) and password DON'T WORK
to log into your site. This mirrors why I stopped buying from you years
Release 1.1.1 of FliteDeck VFR has been released yesterday evening to the AppStore (see iTunes link).
Improvements of Release 1.0.1: We replaced the ownship symbol by a smaller aircraft icon and also added the appearance of the bearing indicator what several of you guys have been proposing. The bearing indicator no draws a line from your current location to the "Next WP" or…Continue

I am already a member und user of Flitestar, Jeppview and Flitdeck FD.
The coverage, for that i pay every year is all of Europe.
So i think Flitedeck VFR must be a part of these Package, because nobudy want to pay two times.
At this time there are only some countries covered by Flitedeck VFR. Especially in this case the entry should be free for users of Flitestar and Jeppview.
on Saturday we had a launch event at Cumulus Pilotshop (http://www.pilotshop.ch/) in Muhen/Switzerland to demonstrate Mobile FliteDeck VFR. We had many customer of Urs Küffer and Thomas Diener, the 2 owners of Cumulus, in the audience ready to ask plenty of questions which we could answer to the group and also in one-on-one discussions after the presentation.
Thanks to …Continue

General very good product, however could not get with one "tab" on Airspaces the frequencis (i.e. R or D airspace) something very useful and necessary as
well as hours of service of these airspaces (i.e. Dübendorf or Emmen etc).
Not provided yet or please advice how to proceed.

Habe kurz vor der AERO den Update gemacht. Das iPad wie das mini iPad schafften den Update nicht. Ich musste das JeppFD VFR löschen und neu installieren.
Die Karten Darstellung wurde nur leicht verbessert. Das Flugzeugsymbol ist zu gross, diffus, nicht präzise und deckt mir zu viele Informationen ab. Der Kreis um das Flugzeug kann ja hübsch sein, macht aber keinen Sinn. Das GPS liefert eine Position auf wenige Meter genau, der Pfeil verdeckt uns je nach Zoom einige hundert…Continue
