Send us your logs!

Hi !

We have put a lot of effort into improving the stability of AvPlan and want to make it as rock solid as possible. To resolve any latent crashing issues in AvPlan we really need logs sent to us so we can resolve any remaining issues. Some get passed on via Apple, but most do not. So if you have had a crash in AvPlan, send us an email with the logs to support at avsoft.com.au and we will resolve the issue.

If you sync your device with iTunes and then send us the ‘AvPlan…’ files and ‘LowMemory…’ files from;

• Mac OS X :~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>

• Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter/<DEVICE_NAME>

• Windows Vista/Windows 7: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>

AvPlan 1.3.1

  • The ability to add user fixes to all Airservices maps
  • The ability to show Airports, Navigation Aids and User Waypoints on all Airservices maps
  • Flight plans including track logs can be shared with other AvPlan users via email.
In addition there are a number of fixes when submitting flight plans to/from user waypoints, and improvements in the way aircraft types are edited, and other minor changes.

 

AvPlan 1.3

Hi

AvPlan 1.3 has been approved by Apple and is now available from the Apple App Store.

This release includes the following new features;

  • Route markers (at 10 minute or 10 NM intervals) can be added to routes on the map
  • Routes can be edited and intermediate waypoints added by ‘rubber banding’. Tap and hold on the middle of a route and move it to an intermediate point. A waypoint will be added to your plan at that point.
  • A new notepad tab, for taking notes
  • Winds aloft page added under “Planning”. This allows the viewing winds in an area forecast and selection and change of winds where there are subdivisions in area forecasts
  • Flight plans and track logs can be emailed in ‘GPX’ format. These can be viewed in applications such as Google Earth to view previous flights.
  • Flight plans and track logs can be cleared from a previously used plan. Buttons will be visible at the bottom of the plan when editing the plan.

AvPlan 1.2.1

AvPlan 1.2.1 has approved by Apple and is now available in the App Store. It contains a few exciting new features;

  • User waypoints can be edited and deleted (See under Flight Planning)

The user manual for AvPlan is now available at http://www.avplan-efb.com/wp/wp-uploads/2011/02/AvPlan-User-Manual-v1.2.1.pdf

In addition we have fixed a lot of reported bugs;

  • SARTIMES when the same point is a destination on multiple legs
  • SARTIMES when plan has the same departure and destination and only airwork in between
  • Aircraft performance profiles can be deleted
  • Weights are not rounded to nearest KG (for people who like pounds)
  • Correct fuel units appear on flight plan summary
  • Fixed crash when selecting edit mode during plan recalculate
  • Fixed crash/leg corruption when deleting all points from a stage in a plan which is not the last stage
  • Fixed incorrect association of track logs to flight plans
  • Added option to delete all track logs on all plans
  • Flight mode automatically enabled when departure button pressed
  • Google Map view opens when app is first installed – will enable GPS at that point
  • Last selected aircraft and performance model used on new plans
  • SARTIMES are saved against the plan for auditing purposes

Thanks for your continued support and keep your ideas for new features coming. Please dont hesitate in getting into contact with is if you are experiencing any issues with the app.

The AvSoft Team

AvPlan Update

It has been a busy few weeks in AvPlan HQ. Apple finally approved version 1.0 for release late last week. This was great news for us, but as the review had taken such a long time (3.5 weeks in total) we have decided to withhold it and release version 1.1 as the first public release.

This has been submitted to Apple and we expect the review to take about a week.

Since our last update we have added some new features into AvPlan 1.1 which make the app even more useful;

  • Optimise altitudes function
  • Download the status of all restricted areas for your plan
  • Print preview your flight plan

Progress has been made on the user manual, which should be available on this site by the time the app is released.

Unfortunately testing cycles have not permitted us to completely test the iPhone version so we will have to hold this version over for the next release. Anyone interested in testing the iPhone version feel free to contact us at support at avsoft.com.au.

AvPlan 1.1

The approval process for AvPlan 1.0 is still in progress with Apple. This however has not stopped work on AvPlan 1.1.

The features in AvPlan 1.1 are;

  • Updated user interface to greatly enhance usability
  • Updated ‘nearest items’ display
  • Updated airport display
  • Routes can be modified interactively by dragging waypoints and routes on the maps
  • Screen brightness control
  • Tracks are logged and displayed on the map
  • Works on iPhone as well as iPad

Availability should be 2-3 weeks via the Apple App Store.
