Packet Pad lets you view Packet Radio transmissions on your iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Just set it next to your radio, tune in a Packet frequency, and watch the decodes. Or for even better quality decodes, connect a patch cable from your radio's audio output to the microphone jack.
Raw APRS (Automatic Packet Reporting System) packets are also displayed.
You can also save your received text to view later, or transfer to your computer via iTunes.
Note: Only 1200 baud packet is decoded. The app is receive only, packets are not transmitted.

I was ready to write a trash review until I plugged the iPad directly to the rig’s audio. Now it works after a year of non-decoding 😺
iOS 9.2 Scrolling problem fixed with 1/4/16 update
With today's update the scrolling problem under iOS 9.2 is fixed. The app works just as it should. Five stars!
Shows packets even if the checksum doesn't pass. I like that. I know it's receiving.
Can attach the radio to the phone and bike ride!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
