ForeFlight Mobile 7.3: two-way Garmin play: transferring flight plans between the panel and tablet isn't the big news, but the ability to overlay Garmin's certified ADS-B data on ForeFlight's tablet app is. Anglisano, Larry Product/service evaluation Oct 1, 2015 500

Xavion: ideal for emergencies: emergency landings are more common than mid-air collisions. We think $100 for an app that is designed to guide you to a runway is pretty reasonable. Durden, Rick Product/service evaluation Dec 1, 2013 1302
Bendix King KSN77O: powerful, hybrid FMS: Bendix King's long-awaited multifunction navigator has a flexible feature set, VGA screen and an open architecture. Expect a learning curve. Anglisano, Larry Product/service evaluation Oct 1, 2013 2072

Five top apps: WingX is a standout: but ForeFlight is our top pick for IFR. You won't go wrong with any of these, but the top three are more polished and feature rich than new contenders. Bertorelli, Paul Product/service evaluation Feb 1, 2013 2816
Quick WX for droid: we're underwhelmed: all we want is an app that gives METARs, TAFs, NEXRAD and PIREPs both graphically and in text. That's apparently too much to ask, at least so far. Van West, Jeff Product/service evaluation Apr 1, 2012 1318
