Ratings and Reviews
Way To Soon
Why CASA would pull their app down before a reliable app that can be trusted and fully functional is put in place is beyond me? They need to read the reviews of the currently only app they recommend and make theirs available again until a suitable replacement is up and running.
For this developer you should focus on replicating the “can I fly there” app as a starting point. If that’s the governments one featuring all correct info they hold pilots accountable for. Simple things like icons that quickly shows what the coloured area means without the need to remember it or look it up. Read their app reviews and don’t make their same mistakes and include the features reviewers are asking for.
It seized my computer 3 times and is very confusing on what is restricted, needs a lot of updating. Under the drone flyer questionnaire they need to remove the question that refers to the "can I fly there" app

Thanks for your feedback. If you've got more details to share on how we can improve the app, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear your thoughts.
It seems to me (unless I’m doing something wrong) that this app does not work as it should. Every location I select, even those that are clearly not in a restricted area, return a red pin with a white cross. Clicking on learn more provides odd information. It shows many items with green ticks but at the top of the list is a red cross with the description x flying in daylight.
I have yet to select a location that returns a green tick as in the sample on this page and I suspect that nothing will. As a matter of interest all items that are not in restricted areas return an okay to fly in the CASA app.

Hi Wayne, thanks very much for the feedback, and we apologise for the confusion. The red pin with the white X appears everywhere during night hours for recreational operators, as recreational and hobbyist flying at night is not allowed by the rules. If you look during the day, or are flying commercially with an operator certificate issued by CASA and select ReOC “rules” you should see an advisory for the night restriction.
We appreciate the feedback very much, and will work on ways to make the night time vs day time distinction clearer.
