Sporty's E6B Flight Computer for Positive User Reviews

Overall GreatI bought another less expensive E6B application after reading some of the reviews here, and there. As a student pilot I'm using the electronic E6B only to double check my work on the mechanical version. After downloading the other application and cross checking my work I found that the cheaper E6B application was getting stuff wrong (or I was always wrong)! In an effort to triple check, I spent the money on the Sporty's application. Boy was I relieved when all my mechanical calculations matched up exactly with the Sporty's application. The only reason I knocked off the last star, and gave it a 4 rating, is the constant Sporty's banner on top. I know where I got it, I'll tell other pilots about it, please get rid of that banner and make everything else a little bigger. If you need to keep reminding me its a Sporty's application flash it on start up or something. As somebody who incorrectly went cheaper the first time, I've learned from my mistake and you can too... Get this application first..Version: 1.3.3

Great for flight planningAn instructor recommended this to me to save time on flight plans. While you still need to know how to use the old fashioned E6B, this is such a great tool to have at your disposal. It is simple to use and so far has been accurate. I so learning about all it's features but so far, it's great..Version: 2.1

Excellent and user friendly (UK based pilot)I have used an ARC-1 for over 20 years and had been looking for an electronic equivalent for a while. This app does everything you need for VFR or IFR navigation and flight planning of routes. Great app and worth the money..Version: 3.1

Excellent… butLacks the holding pattern entry calculator..Version: 3.2.2

Wonderful App! Please add one feature. Calculating time.This app makes it a lot easier to just fly with your iPad and iPhone. Would you please consider adding the capability to calculate time like on your electronic E6B?.Version: 3.3.4

Old versionI actually prefer the old version before the update. There were some features on the old version, like the weight and balance, that are no longer available on this version. Those other features were very helpful..Version: 3.1

Major app update Five stars!A lot of the reviews on Sporty’s E6B app are from the old app interface. The app had a major rewrite a few months ago and it is fantastic. I love that it sorts calculations by phases of flight to quickly find what you are looking for. I’d like to see more investment in the Apple Watch app so it is more useful and xan be retrieved easier..Version: 3.0.4

I love this app, there is one feature that I would like to be addedThe app is easy to use. The design is sharp while being simple to use. One calculation that I would recommend is add a glide path to the Top of Descent calculation. For example I would like to find how far out and what would be my FPM for a 3-degree glide path. Besides using a rule to thumb such as timing the ground speed by 5… etc. By leaving this review, I’m hoping to get the attention of the developers to add it in..Version: 3.4.3

W&B Feature RemovedWhy has the weight and balance been removed from the app?.Version: 3.0.3

Count down timer is poorly implementedThe setting of the initial value on the countdown timer has some problems… the picker doesn't respond to scrolling properly. Also, when you reset the countdown timer, instead of resetting to the initial value (as for timing an approach), it uselessly resets to zero. The keypad seems slow to respond to taps, unlike the built-in Apple keypad. There is no audible feedback..Version: 1.3.3

Excellent! Just need complication for Apple Watch faceI use this app a lot and absolutely love that it is even useable on the Apple Watch! I just hope that eventually the developers will make it so that I will be able to add it as a complication on my “flying” watch face so that I can pop right into it quickly..Version: 2.4.2

Beautiful appDoes what it says on the tin. Nice to have an electronic E6B on the phone, and it's Spirty's so it is good!.Version: 3.1.1

Good but could be betterVery Good App, however some simple changes could significantly improve the IPad version On the Ipad version, please can we have bigger number buttons and bigger numbers on the display, using it as a kneeboard, its not easy to see. Secondly there seems to be a bug where you cannot type in numbers when it sits in a keyboard dock, this is also often where it is used when flight planning..Version: 1.3.2

Fantastic for sim pilots tooAlthough this was made to help real world pilots. I've found it increases my enjoyment of flight sim aircraft a lot as well. The descent functions alone are well worth the cost for me. I don't even really pay attention the FMS suggested VNAV anymore on one of my aircraft, this is more accurate! Im very happy, thanks a lot!.Version: 2.1

Easy and reliableAll the features you need and a modern, clean interface. I like the ability to favorite calculations so you can quickly do the 3 or 4 you always do..Version: 3.1

It’s handy to have.It works nicely as a study tool for me. 👍🏼👍🏼.Version: 3.1

Amazing app, covers everything fast, reduces need for spending time with the E6B.This app should cover everything you need for an E6B, but lowers the amount of time spent on calculations. Good for use on the go, or if you are in a rush..Version: 3.1.1

SportyI was critical of this app when it first appeared because it was geared for the US market with settings in gallons rather than litres; pressure in inches rather than millibars. But, the developers have made many improvements including those listed above and it is now an excellent application. It is easy to use for flight planning and good value for money..Version: 1.3.2

Works, if the function button would stop disappearing.On both iPads, the function button in top left is just missing. It’s there on my google phone version, but not on the iOS version. Needs to be fixed, unusable as is..Version: 2.4.3

Very Easy to UseIt has every thing you need for planing your trip,easy to use works well! I like it better than iwizwheel !!.Version: 1.3.3

E-6BDon’t use the app very much, but when I do it’s invaluable. Quick and easy and always at you fingertips..Version: 3.4

BEATS USING THE MANUAL WAYThe title says it all! It has made my life just that much easier! Using ForeFlight and finding wind directions has changed my life!.Version: 3.4.1

It's a startGood start and nice interface, easy to use. Greatly let down by lack of metric in calculation such as millibars and hpa. Also the carry over of results in calculations and conversions would be fantastic. Eg, entering gallons figure in the gallons to pounds conversion also entrees the gallons into the gallons to kg, or litres conversion, and the litres figure is also copied to conversions requiring litre figure input..Version: 0

Sport’s E6BI recently retired from flying ( but continue to fly under supervision in my later years). The development of technology allowed me to use the U6B on my iPad and phone. What a difference it made with easily accessible functions covering everything needed and useful, and being able to save ones used often. I used it all the time..Version: 3.3.4

Works for aussie pilotsIn the past this did not have configurable units, now it does. I use it all the time it's great. Much faster to calculate heading/drift/gs than the old Jeppenson CR-3..Version: 1.3.3

Absolutely The BestI've bought several E6B apps and never liked one. Most won't even give you TAS fro IAS, temp and Alt, the most basic of all info from an E6B. This one does it all and carries all info from one function to the next. FABULOUS..Version: 0

Magnetic variation?App could be tweaked by adding a magnetic variation input field, for calculating heading and GS. Where I operate from, it’s 16 degrees. I need to manually subtract that for every calculation to get compass heading..Version: 3.1

Great UpdateHappy to see W&B.Version: 3.1

Good but expensiveGreetings developers! As an app developer myself, I understand some of the difficulties of reworking an application. It can be a hard hit to end up with 2.5 stars for something you worked hard on (the current situation). I like the app and I also have a few suggestions. First off, make it cheaper! Do a sale! Get new users for $2 and they'll infuse new life into this. $10 isn't way too expensive normally but your rating is 2.5 and nobody wants to pay $10 for a 2.5 level app. Thankfully, your app is better than that! Get new users who will like it for the features it does have. Secondly, add weight and balance. Not hard to do, and that's your users' main concern right now. With those two changes you'll have a much better (and more profitable) app. Finally, my own suggestion: in landscape orientation, split the screen and put the calculator numbers on the right (or left) so all the content can fit without scrolling. Hope this helps, and good luck!.Version: 3.0.3

It goodThe E6B is good, simple as that..Version: 3.3.3

Love itGreat app! So organized and easy to use.Version: 3.4.3

Weight & Balance needs some workNice app with some room for improvement. Landing CG calculation is is wrong. It seems that moment for the burned fuel is not subtracted from the takeoff moment, so the calculated landing CG is way off. Also, entering the arm for the burned fuel seems redundant. Ability to enter CG/Weight safe operating corners into the aircraft profiles would have been a neat feature. currently the app only tells you if the weight limit is exceeded, but not the CG limit..Version: 2.0

Solid, easyWay better than other e6b options. My one gripe and feature request is that the Next, Previous, and tapping an entry field select the full value so I can enter a replacement on the keyboard without hitting the C button every time to clear, since flight planning involves keeping some values the same while changing others for similar calculations..Version: 2.3

Needs more watch featuresOver all a great app on phone and iPad. Needs more watch features. Timer for example would be really nice. Having my favorites from my phone on my watch would be really nice as well. Even having different favorites on watch would be nice. Really hard to scroll Thru all of them and find what you want..Version: 3.2.2

Great for quick calcs for shifting winds!Just downloaded that last night. Student pilot who's doing his xc's. really came in great during the flight planning AND in the plane during the approaches. I needed to recalculate the crosswinds quickly (was on downwind) since the winds were shifting and I have 7 Kt x-wind limit. Entered a few numbers and was able to request another runway just in time :-). I haven't had a change to explore all if the other functions, but so far, I'd recommend it!.Version: 1.3.3

Great app….All the necessary functions and more!!! My only complaint in the W/B section is that you can’t change the units from lbs to kg. You have to calculate everything in lbs and then convert them to kgs…. An oversight? (Not everyone works in lbs and gallons).Version: 3.1.1

FantasticBest app for preflight, and inflight calculations/conversions!.Version: 3.4

Good app for iPhone, not so much for Apple WatchLots of functions for the iPhone but crashes whenever I start the app on the Apple Watch..Version: 2.3.1

Very HANDY!Sporty’s makes it easy for pilots!.Version: 3.3.4

Great…but needs time mathI have the Sporty's electronic E6B in addition to the IPAD version. The one feature I really miss is the ability to do time math in HH:MM:SS format. There is a calculator provided in the IPAD app (which might benefit from bigger buttons), and maybe a ":" key could be added there (with the associated logic to handle it). This feature is the one thing that keeps me carrying my electronic E6B in my flight bag (as opposed to just using the IPAD version). I realize, of course, that converting HH:MM:SS to decimal time isn't rocket science, it is just a very handy time saver!.Version: 1.3.2

Great app but why no hour/minute calculatorGreat app but why no hour/minute calculator.Version: 2.4.2

Excellent app, could with better Watch supportA wealth of functions make this a very useful app. I think that the interface is best on the iPad, but it works well on the iPhone too. The Apple Watch app works as well as the iPhone version once accessed, but it would be so good to see support for complications so that the app could be accessed directly from the watch face..Version: 2.4.2

Weight and Balance calculatorOne of the other reviews stated that you can't add additional rows/arms in the weight and balance calculator -- that is not correct. Just under the the Baggage 2 row is a large 'Add New Station button', which allows you to add as many rows or additional locations as you'd like. The Edit button at the top right of the screen then allows you to change the description of the location to whatever you'd like..Version: 2.0

Best 10 bucks I have ever spentI have the Sporty’s E6B calculator and the old fashion wiz wheel, this by far is so less complicated and a must for all pilots. Built in calculator as well since the iPad doesn’t have one. A pity you can’t use it for your exam but it made it easy for my check ride..Version: 2.4.1

Good jobThis is a very good app, easy to use and very helpful. $10 is a bit to much though also please add a Knots to MPH conversion because when my passengers ask how many miles per hour we are going I will be able to tell them. So please update that please since I payed $10 for this. Thanks.Version: 1.3.3

YupIt’s everything I need.Version: 3.1

Quick and EasyYou always have it with you except during a written exam..Version: 3.3.4

Essential ToolGreat little app that takes the stress out of in flight and pre flight planning calculations. A must have app for all pilots!!.Version: 2.0.5
