PositionGames.com announced their latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application turns a user’s iDevice into a moving flight map for FSX, FS2004 and X-Plane simulation flying. Routes are indicated by line on the map and users can check in on the cockpit remotely during flights, as well as capture and publish incoming flight screenshots. FSXFollow also offers easy setup and use, personalized customer care via email and free updates.
FSXFollow is a terrific resource for users who enjoy simulated flying. The application turns an ordinary iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a moving map for FSX, FS2004 and X-Plane, allowing for remote following of flight routes and checking in with the cockpit.
No longer are users tied to their desktops to watch their aircraft’s progress, as the portable venue of the app allows for remote access from another room, or anywhere there is an internet connection. This also frees up screen space on a personal computer that would otherwise be taken up for flight following.
All simulated flights are noted on the map as a line, with the map moving to keep pace with the flight. It’s easy to see in a glance, how far along an aircraft is on its route. If users want to check in on the cockpit, they can do that, too. With a touch of a button, they can change views and even save or publish the incoming screenshots to their blog or website.
