[prMac.com] Herndon, Virginia - CFI Tools today announces the latest addition to the CFI Tools catalog, the General Aviation App, CFI Tools General Aviation 1.01. This release consolidates a number of well-known existing Apps and some upgraded new features. CFI Tools have been in use by pilots worldwide for a number of years. Along with the consolidation, every aspect of the existing Apps has been reexamined, upgraded and customized for both the iPad and iPhone.
The consolidation wraps the Apps in a single standardized package known as a Universal App. Nine existing Apps have been retired as a result of this release. Each of these Apps has been upgraded and redesigned based comments and requests from the pilots who use the Apps.
The General Aviation App is a Universal App. This means you can buy the App to run on your iPhone or iPad and run the same App on your other iOS devices. In addition the App has been customized to run on multiple screen sizes. For example the Current Weather feature fills a single page on the iPad. The same information on the iPhone fills five pages that are scrolled left to right. This design allows convenient delivery of the information regardless of the form factor.
The package include the classic Apps that have been popular for years such as Weight & Balance, Takeoff & Landing Distance, Nearest, Crosswind Calculator, Holds, and VOR. In addition there are new and upgraded Weather Apps and a new E6B with dozens of aeronautical functions and conversions.
"We are very pleased to release this new General Aviation App," said CFI Tools owner Brian Best. "We have built this upgrade to consolidate years of experience with these aviation Apps. We hope the restructured pricing scheme allows more users to take advantage of this experience. And we also hope it allows us to continue providing Apps on this platform for years to come. The upgrades in these utilities are a direct result of comments and requests by the pilots who use them. I expect to continue this process on this new platform."
