Infinite Flight 20.2

Blog article by Jason Rosewell

In its second major update of the year, Infinite Flight has released version 20.2. It’s an update that may seem to have widebody variants as the heroes, but if we dig deeper, there is much more at the core.

To the Infinite Flight Community

Thank you to all of those who participated in our Open Beta program!

We spent a lot of time in this release improving our backend systems and fixing many snagging issues in the app to allow us to keep improving Infinite Flight in the future. These fixes allow everyone to get the most out of the sim. With lots of changes comes a large chance of critical bugs, and we really appreciate your time, patience, and reports as we worked through these in Open Beta.

– Cameron, Infinite Flight Developer

We are beginning with a staged release on Android, followed by iOS, to ensure we cover any launch issues smoothly. Please note we don’t know at what time it will reach your device as this is determined by the App Store and Play Store.

Thanks for your patience!

Congrats!!!

I have a proposed addition for that list, since in my completely unbiased opinion cough, I think it’s huge. 😂

ADDED: 6 DOF Head Tracking API which supports SmoothTrack

Edit - Scratch that, it does mention SmoothTrack already. 😂 Thanks again for an amazing release, best ever.
