Just plugging an iPhone app that an ASA captain just started selling ($3) on iTunes, it's called Flash Q/Ard! and includes a bunch of limitations for Shuttle America, Chautauqua, ExpressJet and, of course, the ASA oral study guides for the 50 and 70 seaters. You can make your own cards as well, but why bother when he's done the work.

I am curious what percentage of pilots use the iPhone vs other smartphones. I've been on medical leave for the last year, but before I left it seemed that more and more people were using iPhone. Myself, I use a treo 700wx, and it works as a basic pda okay.

The reason I don't use an I Phone is AT&T. Those guys have the WORST customer service policies in history, and I will NEVER give them a cent of my money!

If you really want the iphone, you dont have to have at&t as your wireless carrier. I have several friends that have T-mobil and they have the iphone. All you have to do is buy at the Apple store (may pay full price for it) then get it unlucked, and you can use it with anyone.

Only issue with the I-phone is that if you surf or talk a lot, it needs to be charged mid day.
I had a HTC touch and went to the I-phone. I am happy with the switch.

For $3 I can study our oral study guide for a PC on my iPhone as opposed to carrying a book. Hmmm 350 flashcards or reading out of a book, which seems like a better way to study? I'd say it's useful...

How about the accuracy of the info? The "White Dragon" used to put out a guide that I heard was worthless at best, very misleading at worst.

You really shouldn't have to "study" for a PC. You should be able to pass that exam any day of the year.

How does this app work? I don't see anywhere to download crj flashcards specifically, only that it is a flash card app. Where do you find the crj stuff?

Go to the Manage cards button and click in the search tab. A bunch of card sets come up by default but if you put ASA or crj in the search box, the results get narrowed down. Click on the title and the cards will download into the app.

You must have never been a Sprint customer. I bet Sprint is gone or merged in the next 3 years.

You aren't kidding. I was a Sprint customer and went over to ATT. ATT is so much better and has more reliable service.

Amen and here here!

Case in point.....got a bill with an $89 usage charge. I call them and ask them what that was for, and apparantly there was usage charges everytime the phones location services contacted towers automatically in Canada. I said that I never used the phone while I was there to avoid calls, and she said Ok, and removed it in 10 seconds. They are waay better than Verizon and Sprint.

Just use the manuals that are supplied by the company to study. Why spend money on something that you already have.

Just because it is a cool gadget and it is something to waste time with.
