Aprs.fi Pros

Needs Offline Maps!Overall this is a great app! Happy that it now supports the Mobilinkd TNC. I’ll upgrade to a subscription when offline maps are supported. Until then, APRSdroid will be my “go to” app for off-roading with APRS. When offline maps are supported (preferably using OSM maps), please make it possible to download large areas (e.g., states) in detail instead of the tiny areas that many map apps provide..Otokoyama DenkiVersion: 2.3.0

Needs improvementThe app SHOULD be able to automatically detect where I am and bring it up on the map, not show me Helsinki EVERY time I use the app. It is quite annoying & disappointing..BlexcroidVersion: 2.4.1

Aprs.fi Cons

BuggyIt's a cool app .., if it wasn't so buggy, freezing between screens , app closes for whatever reason, locked on settings screen and couldn't get out no matter what I did , had to delete and download again, and all for 6$ ! Not worth it , don't do it ... Take your 6$ and buy a coffee or 2 and a snack ..better deal ...Hardtack(the original )Version: 1.1.0

Just use the website.Not worth $7 only to have to also pay the subscription for the “high performance” software TNC. A tad greedy in my opinion. Either make the app free and charge a subscription for the additional features or just charge for the app..Rhodes_DVersion: 2.3.2
