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! πŸ›«πŸš€

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 can’t provide SkyPilot 3 for free and therefore we thought about a monthly/yearly subscription which won’t be that high, but covers our costs. Β

Pacific 3.0 is now available

Almost 3 years ago Pacific (formerly SkyWidgets) was launched. Since then we shipped 38 updates which introduced several new features. Especially Pacific 2.0 included more customization options and more Dashboard items.

With Pacific 3.0 we want to take the experience to the next level. A new designed Dashboard view with columns gives a good and clear overview about your location. The setup process has been redone as well. Simply hold an item and drag it to a new position on the grid. It's that easy! πŸ˜Š

We also redesigned the Pacific website - there you can find all details about Pacific 3.0 (about Dashboard items, widgets and so on).

Lastly, we hope you will like Pacific 3.0 and would be very happy about a review at the App Store! πŸ˜Š

This wouldn't be possible with your support!

Thank you! β€οΈ

Pacific 3.0 Dashboard Concept

It has been a while since we published a major update of Pacific. In the last few weeks I thought about a new Dashboard which should be more organized. So, I opened Sketch and played around with the design of the current Dashboard view and the result was this: 


Dashboard Concept

On iPhone we will stick with two or three columns, this makes it easier to view more information at a time. Additionally, the iPad view will get more columns in order to prevent the current unused space with no content. 


To sum it up, we want to update the whole interface of the Dashboard view in order to make it more useful because of a better layout organization. 

Please note, this is just a concept and the final product can look different.

If you have any ideas you can contact us via the Support page or on Twitter @cyanicspace!

Pacific 2.0.5 Update


Since the launch of Pacific in January, we published several small updates: We fixed a few bugs and introduced new features like the "Never Sleep"-mode and new Dashboard items. But we have also been working on a bigger update, Pacific 2.0.5, which we want to present you hereby.

Pacific 2.0.5 includes a black theme (Pacific Pro required) which is much more convenient to use at night. As the list of themes is growing, we changed the design of the theme switcher, so that it now shows a preview image and therefore makes it easier to choose the one theme you prefer.

Thanks to one of our beta testers who brought up this idea, the new version of Pacific also features legends on the Dashboard. Those create a better overview of the data by showing a label of the category of the item next to it. You can enable Legends in Settings > Dashboard Setup. No Pacific Pro In-App purchase is required.

Next, we reworked the energy saving mode, which basically means an improved accuracy while the lower battary loss stays the same. However, please notice that GPS usage needs much battery anyway, so even in energy saving mode Pacific will drain a relatively big amount of power, but less than in normal mode.

The update should be available later this week or early next week.

If you enjoy using Pacific, we would be very happy about a (positive) rewiev in the App Store! (:

Thank you very much!
