Exellent app - the previous reviewer is clueless
I am a professional atc and found this app to be very useful in learning different aircraft types. There are dozens and dozens of images for each aircraft and if i as an atc learned from this, i guarantee you will too. The fact that the images are images rather than photos looks good, lets you see the aircraft from different angles, and allows you to focus on small differences and not rely on artificial clues like location or livery to help you identify the aircraft. Furthermore, the app is fast and easy to use and has no bugs that i see. Just using the app is like a game... Its pretty fun, actually, and if you want additional info about the planes there are information web links that will give you technical specs via the web. In short, the app does exactly what it says and does it very well. I cant imagine what more the previous reviewer could want, as its exactly as the screenshots show and even better.
Not very useful for a tutor
All the "photos" are from FSX with custom planes. No real airplane images or, and really more importantly, any clues to what makes each type of aircraft different. Instead you must find them yourself in the FSX stills. Don't bother with this app.
Not what I hoped for
Wasn't what I hoped for. Maybe I'm too much of an amature. I wanted a flow chart type of thing--Does it have propellers? How many engines does it have? Is it a high wing or a low wing? Then a picture highlighting the unique characteristics. Something like Rodger Tory Peterson's guide to the birds.
