In-Flight Instruments (iOS): Live Instruments Add-on for Infinite Flight

#871

Hi @Jan and @epaga, as far as I can tell, there’s no DME system attached to the VOR instruments, correct? As in, I can’t see distance to/from a VOR/NDB.

If so, can you please pleaaeeeee pleassseeeeeeeee add this. I’ll say it again: pleassseeeeeeeee!

Thanks

Correct!

You know when you’re close to a VOR when the needle starts moving rapidly.

It would be a nice addition though, right @epaga?

Epaga is working on IF-O at the moment (iOS now and Android later) and IF-A (Android) is in need of work as well.
The fact that IF-I unfortunately didn’t really take off, makes chances really slim that epaga will be planning to do more work on it in the future.
But, you never know.

That is SUCH a shame! I really don’t get it. Such a great app with lots of potential. Well, I probably wouldn’t give a limb for it, but would still pay nonetheless.

Maybe it’s worth @epaga doing the rounds, and asking people for feedback to understand why it didn’t take off. I feel there’s so much potential here, maybe it’s worth communicating and interacting with IF users to address this…

Arrrrggggg!!! I just wish I could do proper instrument flights!

Thanks anyway

I totally agree.
I love the app!

It’s an app for the real aviation geeks it seems.

Many might not have an extra device to run it on.

Maybe the ones that call IF a “game” aren’t interested in this level of realism.

It’s a real shame though.

Hey man! Sorry to hear this - could you specify a bit more what doesn’t work? What happens when you start? Are you able to connect to a running instance of IF? Do any of the instruments work, etc.? Thanks!

#876

none of the instruments work, I have IF asistant and it works perfect

I need another device to use IFInstruments ??

#879

Check the top post in this thread for instructions: I would definitely recommend a separate device, but if you have an iPad you can use it in slideover mode.

Let me know if you have further questions!

That’s correct, you need either a second device or an iPad to be able to use In-Flight Instruments, like it says in the main post and on the App Store:

#883

is this app available on Android?

#884

You are in the wrong topic, again.

Try this one:

#885

Unfortunately it is not.
It’s unlikely it ever will be.

#886

i assume Android can’t run this app! but overall most of the good stuff are on “IOS”

Why can’t we place multitasking windows on top?!? It’s stupid of Apple.(anybody knows how to do that?) If I place it on left I can’t access thrust. If I place it on right I can’t access rest. Damn! I have iPhone 6 too but i dont like too many devices to fly.

#888

It really is a shame that that’s not possible on iOS.

That’s the main reason the app includes a Throttle as one of the instruments.
Unfortunately you still have to move IF-I from side to side during a flight.

Despite iOS’s limitations the app is a great addon to IF and fun to fligh with.

#889

Some reason throttle is not responsive. Everything else fine…I’ll make video.

#890

That happens sometimes.
After restarting both IF and IF-I it should be fine.

Occasionally, when I haven’t rebooted my iPad for some time, doing exactly that, resolves the issue.
