I finally joined the rest of the world and got an iPhone. I know there are several apps out there that are designed for pilots such as one that figures out crew rest for long haul flights, etc. but I have no idea what they are.

I had also heard (perhaps incorrectly) that there is an app out there for Continental guys that will sync with ccs? Is that true?

time?
Aeroweather is good, the crew rest one might not be tailored to your contract. Don't waste time buying any of the airport status ones, best thing to do is get a link to the FAA's real time status, it will tell you where the ground stops and delay programs are and won't cost you anything.

If you have a Mac computer, get LogTen, it's a logbook that works fairly well.

Great, another guy that has to show me all his "cool Iphone apps". I am sick of pilots and their iphones! not trying to single you out, but when you get this please don't keep showing the people you fly with all the "cool stuff" it can do.

i get it - you can load up a map and see where you are. Been doing that a few years prior to iphone coming out!

I got one to, so I could be cool like everyone else. It is actually pretty damn amazing. I was very disappointed when it couldn't cure cancer and get me VIP/1st class access anytime I wanted. But I'm sure an app is in the works. Check out !puff, for you on the down low perverts.

The app you are looking for is called "crew rest". I use it regularly for 3 pilot rotations across the various ponds.

If you commute to work then 'Next Flight' is a must have.

FlightControl.... Addictive little f^cker
;)

I have flightcrew iLog - it's ok and getting better

wish APDL had an app- and let me know if they do- i've searched and no luck and my history with them is being retardedly slow at keeping up- iPhone is easily pilot's most popular smartphone with an easy process to create apps- and they don't have an app? WTF?
Hope I'm wrong and they either have one or one coming shortly

I would like to see an app that loads an atlas, like the captains atlas, so I can identify which river,mountain ,lake etc...with a vor layover for orientation. It has to be able to be used without an internet connection ie cashed on the phone.

I keep looking. Does this exist?

I use and like,
Flight track pro, for commuting........aeroweather

I also like ny times and usa today. Both free. I down load the paper every morning and then read them enroute with phone in airplane mode. No longer dependant on the hotels for a paper.

weatherunderground.com has a great mobile site where you can really zoom the radar, the wundermap

...yeah, I know they're not apps, but they're useful links ;)

For Nav, navimatics has a free/paid maps app called Aero Maps. Free in the SEA area, paid for the rest. It might work standalone with newer iphones with gps, or you can scroll around yourself.

Do you know if Logten can import pairing information off of company websites like CCS at CAL? I just downloaded the FlightCrew ilog and found that function to be fantastic. Apparently there is no master log to download the ilog too however, or is there?
