I am happy to report iFMS version 1.1.4 is now available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. This revision fixes the following issues: - On some Android devices like the Motorola Xoom2 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab7 not all the FMC buttons were displayed because of a sizing issue of the bitmaps. - Waypoint names should always be displayed when the HSI is in PLAN mode, not just when RTE DATA is selected. - When a runway is selected in some cases there was a problem only displaying the relevant departures/arrivals for this runway. - There was a crash and/or misplacement when programming a hold in an existing procedure. - When the HSI was in plan mode in landscape configuration, trying to program a hold, the “STEP” function was overwritten by the “PPOS” function. - Take-off status would only show complete after PERF INIT / ROUTE / TAKEOFF PAGE was complete and a departure runway was selected, in reality the departure runway does not need to be selected for take-off status to show as complete. Two less common aircraft were also added to the list of default aircraft, the AgustaWestland AW139 Helicopter and the Cessna C337H Skymaster. Many thanks go out to the users and testers who have pointed out and helped me resolve these issues. What does the future hold for iFMS? Apart from some revisions and minor upgrades in the near future, for the longer term I am planning some bigger developments for a later major upgrade (version 2.0): - Full multi-device support: For the moment it is possible to connect multiple devices to a single flight simulator, however, the devices will not sync, i.e. if you program a route on one device it will not be reflected on the other devices connected to the same simulator and thus each device will need to be programmed separately. I’m planning to implement this functionality for the next major upgrade. - A Primary Flight Display (PFD). iFMS currently consists of an FMC and HSI display (also known as a Navigation Display or ND). With the addition of multi-device support, a PFD will allow users to build a simple but very functional home cockpit using two or three Android/iOS devices connected to a single flight simulator. As always, if you have any questions/concerns/issues don’t hesitate to contact me either through the feedback form on the iFMS website or directly, firstname.lastname@example.org.

iFMS for Android has now been released After a successful launch on the Apple App Store in June earlier this year, iFMS has now been released for Android devices on the Google Play Store. Along with this release for Android, a new version 1.1 for iPhone/iPod/iPad will also be released in the coming days. iFMS provides you with a nearly fully functional "Boeing style" Flight Management System and HSI display on your Android device, iPhone, iPad (Mini) or iPod Touch, to make your Flight Simulator experience a more realistic one. Apart from all the standard flight planning and tracking (LNAV and VNAV) functionality, all the more complex functions such as hold programming, custom waypoint programming by coordinates, heading/distance calculation or waypoints radial/intersection calculation and abeam route waypoint calculations are available as well, along with much, much more. The HSI display is has a MAP and PLAN mode and was developed appear as realistic as possible, the programmed route, the waypoints, the fixes, the navaids, the airports etc. are all programmed to be displayed using the standard symbolization rules of the industry. iFMS can be configured for use with almost any of your favorite Flight Simulator's standard or add-on aircraft, 6 default aircraft configuration files are included but you can easily create your own following the tutorial available from the iFMS website. New in version 1.1: This is the first release available on Android as well as iOS platforms. A much desired feature that is now included is the LNAV/VNAV engine. Apart from using iFMS for flight planning/tracking/navigation, with this new engine iFMS is now also capable of controlling the aircraft's autopilot to fly the programmed LNAV/VNAV route. This release also comes with 6 default aircraft configuration files, a 737-800, 747-400, 757-200, 767-300ER, 777-200LR and a PA-28, but you can easily create your own following the tutorial and examples available on the iFMS website so iFMS can be used with almost any flight simulator standard and most add-on aircraft. Graphics have been significantly improved since the original iOS release in June earlier this year. Features summary: - Realistic Flight Planning/Tracking/Navigation - Realistic Boeing style Flight Management System - Realistic Boeing style HSI display - LNAV & VNAV calculation - An LNAV/VNAV engine to control your aircraft's autopilot - Single portrait or side by side landscape view - Configurable aircraft, 6 default included - Use your own created aircraft files - Loading and saving of flight plans - Import flight plans and aircraft from your PC through iTunes - Updatable navigation data through Navigraph Please visit http://www.ifms-fs.com for more details about iFMS.
