    I was wondering, if it's worth to have a sticky where we list the most used/recommended iPhone/iPad apps (and maybe the same for android)?
    My list:
    Garmin Pilot
    Avia Weather (Android)
    MyRadar
    Windy
    Live ATC

    The mods are more tolerant with Sac. They always do that with people that don't cut their donuts with a knife...

    I'm not liking the interface so far. But it appears to be functional.
