Announcing SkyPilot 3 ๐Ÿš€

About one month ago we announced that we are now developing the next version of SkyPilot with one major new feature and that is synchronization. At the moment we are implementing sync properly and by now we can tell you that it is lightning fast. Besides synchronization we plan to improve the experience during adding a new entry which gives you more entry options like if you are flying IFR or at night. Additionally, the statistics tab will also get an overhaul with more informational statistics like the night time, IFR time, single engine / multi engine time and several more. Next, the design. In SkyPilot 2 we introduced a whole new design which we wonโ€™t change that much in SkyPilot 3 - you will just see improvements and small UI changes. โœˆ๏ธ

In order to provide this service we need to change our payment model to a subscription basis. This means that you will have to buy a monthly fee of about ~$4 to get full access to SkyPilot 3.

I hope you are as exited as I am! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Cheers, Christoph

The future of SkyPilot

It has been a while since we informed you about the future of SkyPilot. The last information you got was that we discontinued the development of the app but keep releasing bug & crash fixes. Today I am very proud to announce that we are going to overhaul SkyPilot in the near future and develop the app actively! ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿš€

Our plans / thoughts 

SkyPilot was created for private pilots and we will add several currently missing entry options. In addition we are planning to launch a sync service which keeps all entries across your devices synchronized. Another service/feature which is currently in our mind is a web application which lets you access your logbook through the browser.

That is a summary of our thoughts on the future of SkyPilot. But there is one more thing which is very important and that is pricing. We canโ€™t provide SkyPilot 3 for free and therefore we thought about a monthly/yearly subscription which wonโ€™t be that high, but covers our costs. ย 

Be sure to follow @cyanicspace and @SkyPilotApp on Twitter for updates. You can reach out to us anytime via Twitter or through the support page.ย  ๐Ÿš€

Location Dashboard 3.4 Update (formerly Pacific)

With this update we rebrand "Pacific" to "Location Dashboard" which is more precise for a location tracking app. Additionally, we made this change due to bad search results in the App Store and the bad association between Pacific and a location information app.

Furthermore, we changed the app icon, which you can see below:

To sum it up, everything is like before, except the name and the icon. So check out version 3.4 which also includes bug fixes and stability improvements.

All the best! - Christoph
