    "Flight planning, flying, and logging becomes a real joy when using the ForeFlight Mobile EFB app. In short, this is the app that pilots depend on! The next generation data-driven map technology coupled with the beautiful UI interface means the future of aviation maps is already here. For weather briefing to filing, to managing those ATC route amendments that always come in when you least expect them, and everything in between, ForeFlight is the killer app for aviation."

    "I'm studying meteorology in school, and I find this app to be a super cool way to see a bunch of stuff related to weather. I don't think it has too much to do with aviation, unless you're checking out the weather before a flight or something!"

    "While I am not an avid flyer I do like some of the apps that have been released on the app store. MyFlightbook seems to be a very useful app for pilots that would allow them to track their flights and mileage and time flying. It is a very useful app if you're a pilot."

    "Intriguing. I'm not a pilot, mind you, so what I can tell you about this app solely comes from what I heard during an afternoon spent on my brother-in-law's little plane. We went for a short flight and he decided to try this new app he had just downloaded. It looked neat to me, but he was really into it and enjoyed the ease of use and the way it took him just a few minutes to learn how to use it. So, take it from my BIL: this app rocks!"

    "To be absolutely honest this is NOT an app for average users. What on earth are these acronyms? What do they even mean? I have no idea. But what the app does do is give you a very large list of airports, but who needs that? maybe pilots and people who work in the industry. "
