Description

This application is a photo-realistic aircraft Artificial Horizon indicator, also known as an Attitude Indicator, for your iPhone. Has a resettable zero and the movement is super smooth and realistic. NEW VERSION includes these new features: 1. improved Graphics 2. Landscape mode 3. Native iPad app 4. Bug Fixes 5. Supports Latest iOS version This application is modeled after the instrument found in many general aviation aircraft. It looks just like the real thing because photos of the real thing were used to create the graphics. Pitch and roll angles are represented both with the analog instrument as well a digital display. The instrument can be zeroed and the pitch reference "wings" can be adjusted, just like the real instrument. Of course, the iPhone doesn't have the same type of Gyro as an aircraft, so the instrument function is simulated using the iPhones built in accelerometer, This program has been tested on an iPhone 3g, 3Gs, 4 and iPod touch running firmware version 4.0 on up

    The Developer at iAware must not be aware. How hard can it be and how long can it take to up convert this to 64 bit? Absolutely pitiful and appalling. The Developer ought to be ashamed of himself.

    Crashes after start up. Too bad, it's one of the better looking ADI's.

    Just what I was looking for. Yea a console with all six instruments would be nice.
  • Great App!

    I would love to see a Banking Indicator developed as well. Possibly by easily converting graphics and the roll angles of the off-road app into the Aviation version. Clustering them all together into a Console style multi app bundle to buy as one a single purchase. That and an Aviation style weather radar is all I can think that would make a perfect compliment to these instruments.

    Screenshots are misleading. Does not display rolling motion that actual instrument displays. Graphics are jagged and pixelated. Looks like a bad Photoshop job. At least it was only 99c.
  • yeah ... it's cool

    the attitude indicator can be a difficult instrument to understand at first ... this helps out a lot.

    This is a great application for classroom demonstrations. If you are thinking of purchasing it as an emergency backup Attitude Indicator in the airplane it will not work for that. I have flown with this in the aircraft and the only indications that are accurate are pitch information as long as the airspeed remains constant. No bank information is presented in coordinated flight as the accelerometer in the Ipodtouch is incapable of detecting that the bank is occurring due to the centripetal force created during the turn. Yawing the aircraft with the ruder produces a bank indication opposite to the direction of yaw. Relying on this application in the aircraft during flight in instrument meteorological conditions could lead to total loss of aircraft control and possible structural failure due to excessive G loading of the aircraft.
  • It's a fun app!!
