Siri Shortcuts Projects!

Since Apple has announced Siri Shortcuts we can easily make look a like apps to simplify a lot of things. We can do this for Infinite Flight as well. For example, you want to fly but you don't have a lot of time to plan a flight, just run one of these shortcuts. Here are some shortcuts:

Make sure you have downloaded the Siri Shortcuts app

How do you find your shortcuts that you made?

Just a little fantasy :)

I noticed the rates of descent were a bit fast on the TOD calculation. Here’s my own version of it with a 2° descent (you were using 3° I believe). It also prompts the altitude of the airport and also calculates so that you are 25nm away from your destination and 10000ft above the airport altitude. Just some food for thought ;)

There’s a little bug in it… I’m going to fix it

What is it? 🤔

You didn’t had an option with ‘Enter Cruise Altitude Manually’ but when I press 40000 it says ‘Enter Cruise Altitude’. And ‘Mach Sprad’… so I fixed it :D

@Mika is there a way to get the route off another website? Say Flightaware or even simbrief etc?

No rush lol! This is good stuff! Particularly cause I fly on my iPad and use my phone as my “EFB” so to speak

Hey man I like the update you added to my TOD + VS widget. I’m glad to see people are able to use this widget. If you would like to collaborate to create other widgets for infinite flight let me know. Also I was using 3° for the descent rate. Isn’t that usually the standard descent rate? @Mika the reason why 40,000 wasn’t on the menu is because it cannot fit on the widget page.

I usually use 2° for planes that are hard to slow down 🤷🏼‍♂️

Would anyone like to work on a project for calculating VSpeeds.

Well, I primarily made it for my own uses, so that I can quickly make those calculations and Ron’s them in my head. I’ll work on it tomorrow maybe.

I can’t make one with SimBrief, as it’s a php site

You know what would be a good widget? A widget that shows you the gate you’re supposed to be parked at and the arrival gate if you’re simulating a real flight.

FlightAware has that! That’s why I added it :D

Is it like flightradar24?

FlightAware has all info about the flight like route, average speed etc. and FlightRadar24 shows the ‘small’ info.
