Aprs.fi for Positive User Reviews

RF OnlyI was able to post my position and exchange messages while not having any internet access. I was in a group that helicoptered into a remote location were there was no cell service. I was able to receive APRS signals from my location, make a contact, and exchange messages. Tried to establish voice, but was unable. My phone worked well as a monitor for displaying the data etc from my handheld radio..Version: 2.3.0

Great app, just one option missingGreat app, much easier than trying to use the aprs.fi site on mobile, however please can you add an option to switch off the blue “my position” icon? Often this obscures my last packet (say if I have just pulled up) and makes clicking on it impossible. Thanks!.Version: 1.6.6

Promising APRS AppAs far as I know, this is the only iOS app for APRS that supports an external TNC. The only TNC it supports to my knowledge is the latest Mobilinkd Bluetooth TNC. As the only such app, it’s great and I’m happy somebody’s developing a good APRS app for iOS. My only complaint is how limited it is - no messaging, no object, nothing APRS supports beyond position reporting. Hopefully this is made part of the app in future editions..Version: 1.9.3

Great appOne of the fastest loading apps well worth the money..Version: 1.6.6

APRS.FIThe best app of the lot..Version: 1.6.3

Good but needs work.I like the program but the filters need work..Version: 2.1.0

Great app for aprsI’ve used this app for some time. It has matured nicely and is the best aprs app by a mile. If you also use the aprs.fi website it’s a great way to support the developer..Version: 2.3.2

AprsVery good app. Use it while hiking so my family can monitor my location..Version: 1.6.6

GreatVery good application 🤓.Version: 2.3.0

It just worksWorks perfectly great for tracking wed and SOTA activators.Version: 1.8.1

The bestHands down one of the best APRS apps on the market. Easiest to use and has every feature you could want or need. Was hesitant to pay with all the other free options out there but I’m glad I took the plunge..Version: 1.6.6

Good ThingWorks extremely well..Version: 1.8.1

Please addI’m using the app with a Mobilinkd TNC3. I’m finding the interface to be easy to use and straight forward. I would like to see the ability to send and receive APRS messages as well as straight packet..Version: 1.8.1

Excellent App for APRSI have been using this app since its first release. Great app to use, easy to do what you want and with improvements over time. Well supported by the author unlike many APRS apps that are soon have support or updates abandoned by the author. Recommended to iOS users..Version: 1.6.3

Great HAM AppThis is a great amateur radio application I use so my family can track my status when I hike..Version: 2.4.0

What it says and more.Great app and worth paying for..Version: 1.1.0

App works great, Developer is always doing updates.App works great, and the developer is always working to update the app. When iOS 13 came out on beta it broke the system with google maps. I emailed the developer and he responded pretty much right away saying he is working towards a fix. Two weeks later a new update and its working. Great job with the application. And it works with Darkmode. Pretty great app, worth the purchase price. VE7PMD.Version: 1.9.3

FantasticWorks fantastic for me, it enables me to update my location so friends and family know where I am. Also with comments let them know what I am doing..Version: 2.0.3

Start screen wishHi, Thanks for a GREAT product. Is it possible to quit the app and when restarted, resume where it was previously? Every time I start the app it starts in Europe, not the the same continent where is shut down. Thanks Again Dwight.Version: 2.3.2

AprsWorks good to see where a friend is or checking weather on weather stations.Version: 2.3.2

Works wellGreat app. Works well whether using to see APRS from own radio, or looking for other ham output or checking internet weather stations. Many thanks!.Version: 1.9.2

Link to Kenwood TH-D74App works as advertised. I’m new to the iPad/iOS world. The install went smoothly and the graphics look great. My question: If I purchase the additional package will I be able to connect to my Kenwood TH-D74 handheld via Bluetooth. If it can will all the app features work. Messages, beaconing, etc.? 73, KB5FSG.Version: 2.3.2

Works every timeI’m mystified at reviews that give this app anything less than 5 stars. It delivers as promised and works every time..Version: 1.6.8

Best Ham Radio iOS app in the App StoreI don’t usually write reviews, but the work and thought that went into making this app what it is deserves recognition. It is well worth the price and the subscription fee. I use it all the time with my Mobilinkd TNC and VX-6R. Could not recommend more..Version: 2.4.0

Very Good ApBetter than the iPhone version, but not as good as the web site. I still use it regularly though!.Version: 1.4.0

Very Informative and useful.I use it for weather information and position tracking for aprs balloon experiments..Version: 2.4.0

A well supported APRS appsAt least, an app that is still updated by developers and by keeping it up to date with latest iOS version..Version: 1.8.1

AmazingOne of the best iPhone ham apps.Version: 2.3.1

Great appI do like this app, I realize that it doesn’t transmit to the IS servers but that’s coming in a future update. I do like to use it to see where other hams are at. Will be nice when messaging comes..Version: 1.9.3

APRS app that keeps getting betterAll apps have issues and bugs. This one seems to keep improving without causing big changes that would make users hate the change. Excellent program. I hope they continue on the same path of improvement and integration with new things like the new external bluetooth APRS devices on the market. -KX4MQ.Version: 1.8.1

Gm7urdHave been using this app for a few years now and as i have several aprs apps on the phone i can say that this is always the first if not only one i open. others perform different functions. this app lets you see historical snapshot of the last few hours which i think is a lot better that the others that when you open them just let you see the current incoming aprs positions. for example if i go out into countryside and have no phone or wifi signal and i want to know retrospectively if my rf beacons have been received then this is the only app that enable this. beaconing from the app itself is very simple and unlike the other aprs apps doesnt crash the phone or make it laggey. very smooth to operating and very good menu features also..Version: 1.8.1

MM6LNBExcellent app on the iPhone..Version: 1.6.6

Actually works!!I was having issues with other apps but this one works for me. I got the app for $7 and for $7 a year I get all functionality in the app, not a bad price. Definitely recommend to get into APRS. I’m using a baofeng BF-F8HP connected to my VHF/UHF Ed-fong J-pole on the roof and it’s working well. Aswell as the B-Tech cable..Version: 2.3.1

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..Version: 2.3.0

Great AppEspecially when has to compete with other APPS for the signal received.. I have been using for years, and will continue...Version: 2.4.0

Aprs.fi quick reviewPretty happy with this app, good job. One issue I do have is that it only stays running in the background for a day or two. It would be nice to set and forget the app rather than having to open it every day to make sure it's awake. Not that my phone does not get turned off at all. Good work team, keep it up..Version: 1.4.0

Best aprs.fi appRunning on iPhone XS and full screen looked ok before this update and still looks ok😮.Version: 1.6.7

Always worksWe travel extensively around the country and this app is always reliable. A+++ for sure. KX4U.Version: 2.0.4

Rating reviewThis meets my expectations entirely..Version: 1.4.0

Great programDoes exactly what it says. Works great with my TNC. I just wish I had an application that would support digital modes for APRS messenger on Apple IOS. Now that would be awesome!.Version: 1.9.3

PsychologistExcellent ..... utilise it....especially when san is on an extended trip.Version: 2.3.2

Love ItNow my radio is sending correctly (Yaesu FTM-400) I show up on the map. I want my 98 year old Dad to be able to track me when on the road. Works great..Version: 1.9.3

I like it a lot!The app is so much more convenient than using the website. It does everything I need or want. Tem N5KWL..Version: 2.3.2

Don kj7hpfHelp 2 find car wen was stolen👩🏼‍✈️.Version: 1.9.3

Works great. Intuitive and full featuredApp has everything I need with an easy to use UI..Version: 1.6.6

Worth every pennyIt’s a well designed and solid working app. Worth every penny! 73 from KD5CYN.Version: 1.8.1

Awesome App!This app is a very reliable way to participate in the APRS Network. Keep up the good work!😊👍.Version: 2.4.0

Great app!!I really like this app. I have been able to get into APRS really easily and learn it. Thanks for creating this app..Version: 1.9.3

Support For Yaesu FTM-200 NeededBoth website and app do not ID the Yaesu FTM-200 as a rig. Furthermore, the beacon text always displays a “_2” at the end. Other than that, minor bug fixes are needed. The app occasionally will not refresh once closed..Version: 2.4.0

Wasn’t sure it was workingUsually it works well, but today it said that the service could not be reached even though I was told that it was beaconing..Version: 2.3.1

No complaints so far.Just started using APRS. Found this app very easy to learn and use. Thanks a lot..Version: 1.9.3

Looks good, easy to use. 👍Works great on iOS, user friendly, a ham radio operator must have that has a smart device. Lots of icons for every occasion, after call sign marker I use a lower case -i to indicate iPad or iPhone. On my ht i dont use a number due to it being my only aprs unit, but people with more than one number them..Version: 1.6.6

Edit: no longer supports iOS 10Original below. I was delighted when the TNC modem was introduced but having paid for the additional functionality last year, the app no longer works on my old iPhone 5 (iOS 10) which I had dedicated for APRS for RAYNET. So now my main phone has to be tied up as a TNC. A retrograde step IMHO. {I have been using Aprs.fi for several years now and found the app to have worked faultlessly on iPhone 5 and 6 for beaconing during RAYNET operations and more recently for personal use whilst out cycling the tracks and greenways during lockdown. Having the map running on the iPad at home gives my wife the reassurance of knowing where I am, just in case.....} de G8HKS.Version: 2.3.0

Worth itEasy to use...Version: 2.0.5

Excellent!Perfect cheap way to get started with APRS. This plus a btech APRS cable (or make your own) and you’re up and running. I used an old iPhone without a SIM card, this app, and an old HT and it’s working wonders. Yes, there’s an additional fee for the built in TNC/modem and other features, but it’s well worth it - especially if you compare it to purchasing a physical TNC..Version: 2.3.0

GreatI respectfully disagree with G1CVR. This is a great app and does what I need it to do. IE I can beacon without trouble and can view a map of who else is about. The one issue for me is having the 'Beacon Now' link so close to the 'Delete Account' link. That is just asking for trouble. Change that and it is a five star app from me. Much nicer than the overpriced APRSpro 73 de G7BHE..Version: 1.6.1

ReviewBrilliant app highly recommend it and does everything it says..Version: 1.6.1

APRSWorks great ...... love you it . Use it everyday ..Version: 2.3.2
