The must have drone app Helpful app that gives you weather, wind, no-fly-zone map and the latest news at a glance

Declan Walsh

Cool app Well designed and user friendly

Cole Hansen

Great app for my ap copter setup

L1AML0

Where did the k index go?

Joel Lindsey

Great Resource Love the update to the map. Works great.

mark beamish

Fix it please Will give 5 stars once the flight log works for galaxy s5 can not find it anywhere

Chris Covington

Awesome app!!

Richard Parsons

Good concept Would love to be able to see the UK on the map. Or current location. Look forward to future updates. Nicely done so far.

Alan Vadas

Awesome! I don't fly without checking this app first!!

Bryan Gabric

Looks good But.. With out the map or rss on my S5 its really limited in usefulness. Really want to see this app fully working.

Shannon Laramie

Decent app This provides a lot of the industry related news stories in one app which I find very useful

Butch Davis

You fly..get this I find it to be accurate at my flying locations and it has a timer too. Only thing I would change is make it a countdown timer with a buzzer to alert the pilot to bring it in. All in all it's a must have app.

Robert Youens

Very comprehensive. I have been using k-index. Like this better.

Frank 69Meano

Great Info Use it pre flight Every Time

Deepesh Shrestha

No maps for Australia

Craig Davidson

UK?? Won't display UK on the map. Can't find my location. I like it and it's a great idea but would love to see it working fully. Thanks.

Thomas Nicolicchia

Hover Very nice. Helps me save money by not taking chances on wind speeds and gust

Steven McDougall

Needs work Needs zoom for text ,needs landscape mode , looks promising though

Aurelio Pacla

Perfect for what i need! Tells everything that i know before i fly. Perfect!

chad resler

I like it! But I agree with the other reviewers, a bit clunky yet, but great idea! I have confidence you guys will make it better. Just needs s couple tweaks. Thanks for the app! Will change rating as it improves.

Steve E

Sorry guys Installed on both my galaxy s4 and my galaxy tab pro and wont work on either. Shows its loading and just stays on that screen with the compass and kp index of 3. Please fix cuz i love the idea.

Scott B

Good start Some issues with the map not finding me. The interface navigation is a little clunky. Good to have all the info and the news feed in one place though.

Dan Held

My Go-to app for Drones! Beautiful, simple, informative. This app gives me all the data I need to fly, and also provides a real time drone news feed to keep me up to date with everything going on!

Richard Rich

Great concept It's new so I'm sure it will improve. The feature set is very helpful. The my location arrow didn't pull up my location, but I typed in a search the zoomed in to see my local clearances. This feature is great, and will be even better when the my location function is working. Keep up the great work. Thanks. Rich

BJ Kellam

Love the app except the map This is an excellent tool for anyone with a multi rotor, or autonomous drone. No fly zones are up to date, gives you wind speeds aloft (if you fly high), wind direction, temperature, and it let's you log all your flights. The only issue I've has was scrolling the map up. It switches screens when I try to do this so I have to do it painfully slowly. Tip to the developer: you should instead of making it swipe to switch screens, have it pull up a quick select menu instead.

Larry Pratt

Great variety This app rocks lots of info.

Jez McKean

Swipe navigation doesn't allow map to be scrolled to see North. Major airport near me in UK not marked no-fly...

Paul Novak

Pretty cool It's a pretty cool all in one app

Mike Garofalo

Whats the point Can't scroll map down just pointless .

Jeremy Korwek

Needs control changes Trying to move around the map is a chore. If you need to scroll up you switch screens. If you only want to see if you're in a no fly zone its fine but other than that the map needs work.

Shaun Capps

The FRZ around D.C. is wrong You need to recheck your flight restrictions, the D.C. FRZ is 15nm (not 30). Do your homework.

Jason Skala

Needs improved Great idea and potential. However has others have said navigation is terrible. Maybe try tabs for the different sections. Seems to be a proven method. This swipe method is killing the app.

Dave Hearn

Works fine here in UK like the new flight log feature. Map is sometimes a pain though

Oliver Evans

Only airports and restrictions from US shown on map. Not an intuitive interface. I didn't know half the features existed until I swiped my finger across the screen trying to do perform another gesture within android.

Joe Teimo

Not acurate Wind and temp for toronto Canada is way off

Andy Bonar

Has improved as it gets updated. Would be great if you could manually set the criteria for if its good to fly...for example. my bebop2 can handle higher winds than my old bebop 1, so I would be happy to take it out in winds higher than what I think is set as a cut off. Hourly weather slots would be great too.

Corey Passmore

After update, map stays at white screen will not load. Last updated showed me in California, updated it, now all white screen.

Forrest Cavale

OK now we are talking Had a rough patch there, updates fixed many of my issues, this is now a great app.

curt anderson

As some app I use hover before every flight! !!

Jason Harbaugh

Devs listen Great app for hobby fliers and commercial. Devs improve the app based on suggestions. Map works great now without the interface getting in the way.

Robert Latus

One awesome app

Geoff Simpson

I really like this app. The updates makes the flight logs portion more obvious its there. I wish there was a way I could set custom limits on the wind, temperature, or kp index.

Vincent Busclas

Map Changed rating for being prompt to fix issues, only wish map loaded phone numbers of airports and towers.

PT Labmonkey

Looking good Last update resolved an issue I was having. Prompt response from the team...nice update to the UI. Still clean and simple. Thank you guys!

Ryan Masters

Hate this new update on my Nexus 7 2013 Everything worked just fine for me before the update. Now the map takes me to California and I'm in Arizona, the map itself is very clumsy and hard to navigate, I haven't tested any other functions yet, I'll wait for the next update.

Anthony Contello

Map not working I loved this app before the update... Now the map won't work. It seems to think I'm in Los Angeles, CA. I'm actually in NY.

Gr Br

So far so good, did the latest update, weather still not working note 4, did the major update, weather is working but the search has stopped working

Giles Shaxted

Map not working wind direction odd The weather map isn't loading anything for me at the minute (just updated ver3.0.0) and the wind direction arrows point into the wind. Nice potential but just off right now.

No one

Map bug The map doesn't seem to work very well. When I swipe to the right (to browse through the map) it swaps to the other page. Also, I cannot search for an address and also I'm unable to set a flight plan. (press a location to set a flight plan). Basically, the map needs improving, anything else if fantastic. Great work.

Carlos Abreu

Awesome Update fixed map issue, awesome.

Pete Johnstone

No weather info Update has fixed Weather. It also needs adjustable countdown timer with alarm. The straight count up timer with no sound is rather useless.

Ted MIedke

Hover Nice app... when it works. Sometimes every thing is covered, now- map never loads.... says bad web address. Hope it gets fixed soon. A much needed app for quad fliers.

Chad H

Still not loading weather Even after update it still won't load weather. Galaxy S5. EDIT 2/11/16 - Everything is now working properly, thank you!

Bubba King

App never installs. I heard they fixed the bug that never allowed the weather information to load, now the app never installs.. Followed someone recommendation to clear the playstore cache on the phone and it installed.

David Cash

Too many permissions New permissions required are not necessary, I'm deleting app.

Butch Davis

They fixed it Working fine now thanks guys.

Daryl Rebollido

2 bad Worked great until recent update. Now - "error saving flight log" tried reinstalling same problem. Uninstalled till I read that the app is fixed -2/15 update yippee it works!!! Thank you raised review from 2 stars to 4!

Grant Boggs

Works again! Hurray it's fixed. Loads and works properly again.

Daniel Coley

Simple and works. I like the simplicity. Easy to use. Would be nice if we could save model and serial number of aircraft. Also a way to keep track of batteries.

Ouel Pacla

Fixed and working again. Love it!

Jim Strickland

Died second time used It also doesn't seem to keep up.

ThePedrotickles

New update fixed it all. Thanks guys!

Denny G.

Not consistent A lot of times it just says loading...

James David

It won't load any more... What'd y'all do? Fix it please!. 1/31/16... Still will not work, did y'all give up on it??

bryan noll

Wont work after update Wont even load now after update. Was working just fine. Galaxy s5

Jon Alexander

Worthless map I have it two stars because the map literally makes up airports. I know for a fact there are none in almost half of the spots it's claiming. FYI someone's dirt road with tree cover is not an airport... Uninstalled...

shaun judy

No working after update Was working just fine. But not no more just sits on landing at the weather screen.

Trevor Jones

No go till bugs are gone Why can't we just have an app work right

Richard Zelechowski

Stopped Not working after update! Plz fix ASAP!

Mike Williams

Not working It won't get past the loading page! it used to work ok!

Justin Palmer

Used to work New update doesn't load on s3; older version popped right up and I could input a city to check conditions, now it demands gps but won't lock onto any satellites.

PG Glidden

What happened with last update????? It used to work great. I love this app, very easy to use, I did recommend this app to all my friends that I fly with. Then last update app doesn't work. I try and save location and get save error, no location icon on map. Looking at another log book. Too many times this app has crashed or not worked, with very poor support. So sad because app has great potential to be a leader among other drone log applications. Samsung note 4

Jason Melendez

I really like this app so far, but the color is awful... no customization. In addition, it would be great if there was some mavlink integration, so that you could see your craft on the map - similar to how Tower or DroidPlanner works. Is this coming in the future? Can we get some display setting options? Yellow with thin black text is quite hard to see, especially outdoors.

J Kriezel

Hover maps aren't working! For three weeks the maps don't show any detail or no fly zones. Tech support on two occasions haven't responded, other than well get back to you. UAV forecast app is at least working flawlessly. So until they fix this, I'm changing apps. Do they even care?

Dan Schneider

Has potential App seems to work fine except airmap doesn't work on my Droid Turbo. Airmap maps don't come up from their website either on my phone so the problem doesn't appear to be in the app but with airmap.

Pete Johnstone

Position accuracy way out. Update has fixed Weather. But position accuracy is way off. You have to have GPS on for app to work yet it does not use GPS to position you on map. How STUPID. App seems to be using cell tower positon which is most inaccurate and puts me upt two to three kilometers from where I am. If it needs GPS for app to work why not use the GPS to show position on map and for flight data. Also a good timer is needed. Not rubish on magazines. And who uses arrows to point to wind direction. Should point with direction.

David Altherr

Great dataset, but missing a few things Please add the NOAA Marine Protection Areas, which are covered by Airmap. These areas include several popular sections along the California and Washington coasts, and many operators appear to be unaware of the overflight restrictions.

Justin Wood

Not working App use to work great now the map will not work. Tried reinstall.

Bryan Koci

Doesn't work on LG G5 This worked on my note 3, but just gets stuck "loading" on my LG G5

Jim Knight

Map no longer works evey thing else seems to work fine.

Gilly -

Incorrect No Fly Zone Guernsey airport is a category b airport. This app shows a five mile radius, no fly zone. Would give 5 stars if amended.

Nathan Selby

Map not working I cannot get any map information to work on my sgs6 now. When I first installed it all work wonderfully, now I can't get anything.

Mister Brown

Nice interface but... Needs to be a bit more accurate. Telling me is ok to fly during a presidential TFR.

Brady Tribble

No go Newest update force closes immediatly

Arthur Becker

Exceptional Excellent maps and info

steven wishart

crashes now after opening freezes then closes on gs5

Jam H

Perfect accessory app A model app designer. Constantly updated to be better, and works every time.

D Ward

Too many updates lately. I'm starting to think this app is a Google app with all the recent updates lately. :")

Roy Gangle

Needs something Need add drones, and batteries I have for then for each flight. Add weather. Add option to save drones and batteries, With the timer. Combine all that and keep screen to stay on. option.

Kevin Johnson

The must have drone app Helpful app that gives you weather, wind, no-fly-zone map and the latest news at a glance

Brian G

Don't work anymore! ! Update fixed it , S6...thank you! ! Great app now !!

Roy Gangle

Needs something Need add drones, and batteries I have for then for each flight. Add weather. Add option to save drones and batteries, With the timer. Combine all that and keep screen to stay on. option.......updated 6-3. Not what I was hoping for. I like rc. battery watcher. Look in that app. That's one of my main ones. I barley use hover because it's badly useless.. Most of the info is wrong and there's a black spot where maps should be.

Scott Myers

Hover used to work fine on my LG Ultimate 2 but the map quit working with the last update.in March (3.0.5). It works fine on a tablet I just got but I had to manually set app permissions on the tablet to allow Hover and several other apps to access GPS location. Until I did that, this app and others would never get location information. Oddly, a navigation app I use had no problem getting location without my having to manually allow that permission. I saw another review complain about not having information about the air operations shown by the circles. Touch the circle and information pops up.

Mister Brown

Broken... The last couple of updates are definitely broken. The latest update 3.0.5 won't open on my Galaxy S4 at all. I see several others are having the same "force close" issue when trying to open Hover. I cleared the cache & data, uninstalled/reinstalled and still no luck.

Josh Broussard

Looks great, but room for improvement Yellow background when ready to fly is confusing. May I suggest a cool mint green? ;-) Also, may overlay shows colored circles, but no information on their purpose.

Pete Johnstone

Position accuracy way out. Update has fixed Weather. But position accuracy is way off. You have to have GPS on for app to work yet it does not use GPS to position you on map. How STUPID. App seems to be using cell tower positon which is most inaccurate and puts me up two miles out. Its the buggiest app I have used. I spent more time with it saying sorry crashed please report bug. Than I have been able to use it. And there still isnt even a timer on it which is the most important thing for flying drones.

Privacy Policy! WTF! Read some quotes from the Privacy Policy(6/1/16): "We mayshare your previous locations with other users or partners." "We will share your information with third parties..." "We will retain User Provided data for as long as you use the Application and for a reasonable time thereafter." Kind of a privacy concern, I'm going to avoid this one.

Smokealotapotamus

Broken with latest update. It used to be fine. Now it crashes on both my Nexus 7, and Nexus 6P.

Just Me

No fly zone Says I'm in a no fly zone but nothing indicating so on the map.

Brian Meaton

Just installed Won't work at all. Useless.

John Hays

Quit working on my S6 a while back...

Beacon Geoscience

Broken No longer works

Ørjan Sandland

Not much better than a paper log Needs ability to create multiple drone and battery profiles so adding flights can be sped up. Fields like temperature and wind must be editable. Conditions are rarely as forecasted. Needs lots of work to provide any added value

SkyBug Productions

It won't load any more... What'd y'all do? Fix it please!. 1/31/16... Still will not work, did y'all give up on it?? 8-19-16. Map will not load. Uninstalled an reinstalled, map still won't load. 9/5/16, still says reload on the map screen.

Elias P8Z

Good app, needs fine tuning So far a good app, but i recommend adding a search field for the map section. It will be easy to search for a future place, instead of scrolling around trying to find an area in the map. Overall, good app for pilots trying to follow the law.

Jim Knight

Map no longer works evey thing else seems to work fine....everyone I install this app map works for about 2 weeks then I have to Uninstall and reinstall

David Warren

Just what I needed! I'm new to drones and feel it important to check conditions ahead of time. Great features!!!

Muhammad Ali

? Very Laggy. Icons are not user friendly

Maarten Hartog

Some bugs The forecast is not working. The no fly zone map is a bit buggy. EDIT: app is fully dead. Can't load the forecast and no fly zone map.

Jesse R

Maps Map not working on samsung Galaxy Note 3

Jim K

Broken Please fix

Michael McKenzie

Was working awesome, Now it won't show any information.

Dan Held

My Go-to app for Drones! Beautiful, simple, informative. This app gives me all the data I need to fly, and also provides a real time drone news feed to keep me up to date with everything going on!

Uninstalled an reinstalled, map still won't load. 9/5/16, still says reload on the map screen. 10/15/16, still doesn't work. I'm done as you are too I guess.

Bryan Koci

Finally works again This wasn't working on my LG G5 and finally does now!

Patrick O'Neill

Maps working again. Good to see that the map function is working again. I'm back to using my favorite preflight app. ?

John Wheeler

Hover Stopped loading. I uninstalled and reinstalled and rebooted, etc. Still won't load. Others having same problem but it's not being addressed even though we're being told it has been adressed.

Charles Blackburn

multiple devices, samsung galaxy tab A, Nexus 7 and Droid MAXX. The most important thing you would use this for (no fly maps) do not work at all.

Tank 62

Too long This application looks good but it takes to long to load!!!! I deleted it in 4 day 's
