    As a pilot, the iPod Touch is pretty handy when it comes to getting weather, filing flight plans, getting an airport diagram, etc..

    Me personally, I use Aeroweather and AirWX for weather related info and AOPA Airports for an AFD. I've used ForeFlight for the trial period but can't bring myself to pay for a subscription, although it is a great app.

    Any other pilots in here? If so, what kinds of apps are you using?

    As a PP, FlightPlan is what I use. Has everything I need.

    I use Foreflight for flight planning, AFD and weather. The $75 annual subscription is easily worth it. The same license also works on the iPad which has "drag & drop" flight planning and makes a great approach plate viewer.

    I also use CoPilot for weight & balance and basic E6B functions.

    Aeroweather +1. Excellent
    Touchplan is good for quick "back of serviette" calculations to see whether a route is feasible
    Time Calc - no more snotty emails from Tech Records criticising my arithmetic...
    Log Ten - Great Logbook calculator
    Mental Case - Great study app when combined with the mac version to make quizzes for your aircraft type / ops manual bits.
    World View - Great to see what the weather is doing at your destination via webcams there. Add your regular places into favourites and updates them automatically.

    And what I am still looking for...

    Is an app that I can put in a load of (bush) airport locations that don't have ICAO codes into favourites and when finished scroll to find two I want then it will tell me the GC distance. If for long routes, it could also look up the average wind (like touchplan) that would be a bonus. Any ideas / developers?
