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.
No fly areas
Hi are the no fly areas correct? Ie Archerfield airport in Brisbane has extended no fly zone past the usual area (you can see it in the forest lake area) When going to the old app (can I fly there) the “red” no fly zone is more circular and doesn’t include the extended flight path restriction. Just need to clarify which is actually the correct restriction.
Developer Response ,
If you could please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we'd be happy to investigate this further for you. Thanks!
Slow inaccurate junk
My previous review appears to have disappeared - what happened to it? Oh well, just the main points then:
* slow, tile- based Google maps instead of “can I fly here” fast, vector based Apple maps
* watching the map redraw is like waiting for a photo to download through a 2400baud modem back in the 90s
* you have to agree to sharing your personal data with Google as part of license agreement, so if you are keeping your phone free of Google and friends, you are out of luck
* often does not work, especially when you are out in the field
* inaccurate when checked against CASA web site, at least where I live/fly.
* giant download - seriously, what’s this written in, nodejs?
In other words, this is a disaster, from usability, privacy, and safety perspective. How taxpayer’s money ever ended up getting spent on this is a mystery.
As an exercise to the reader: actually read their license agreement rather than just click “agree”. You won’t feel like clicking “agree” afterwards.
