This feature is fairly simple, but I feel like it will benefit many!
The idea is to add a small, but noticeable indicator in a corner of the screen while in the app. This indicator will show either a diagram of the battery (like on Apple devices) or simply just a percentage. This will be useful for pilots and ATC’s to see how much battery is left and/or if they urgently need to charge their device, without having to leave the app.
The feature would look something like this:
This is seen on the PUBG mobile app, where they have put this into use. (See black marks referring to what I mean)
Now some might say “Why is it so bad to leave the app?!” Well, when a pilot or ATC leaves the app, it actually puts them offline and ‘pauses’ the simulator, flight, or session. This means that, say you are in a group flight, doing formation work, when you swipe down (on apple devices this brings down the notification centre where the battery percentage can be observed) the session will be paused, meaning that when you resume, you will be behind all of your fellow pilots - this could be disastrous if you did this on final at a busy airport such as KLAX!
So what do you think? Reply below with your thoughts.
If you think this is a good feature to be added to IF, don’t forget to vote!
