Great app, it's been very useful at different times!

 

Thanks for more of the nice comments gents, I promise to be back with some good updates in the near future. Just busy as heck! I've learned a lot of cool stuff in this iOS programming adventure, and I think I'll be able to make some slick updates in time. Also, I'll look into making this an android app too, I think there's a way to convert it but it may cost $$$$!

 

Thanks again guys, see ya online in my shiny new BS2 chopper! ;)

I haven´t through all the 151 pages as I noticed at page 5 or 5 that Android seems not to be supported back this time.

Did that changed already? Is there now an Android version available?

 

nontheless thanks for the work...and regarding to your statement about Iphone and so on and who doesn´t have it...well I think that apple has it´s most customers in the US. I personally dont like Apple and it´s products.

No, I haven't done anything to have this programmed for android yet. I have nothing against android at all, and don't recall making any comments as such, but I do happen to only have an iPhone and iPad, hence why I programmed for those devices. If it were a simple button I could press to have it magically programmed for android, I would! But I'm a very novice programmer, having self taught myself, and have no idea how to port it over cheaply. I recently saw a software package that I could purchase for $200 (I think) to port it over to android, but I'm not about to drop that sort of money for an App that I've spent countless hours of work on and offer for free to the community!

As for Android: check out "DCS MANAGER" in the market. https://market.android.com/details?id=fr.yeepeekai.dcs.manager&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImZyLnllZXBlZWthaS5kY3MubWFuYWdlciJd

 

It's not that sophisticated as the iBrother, I must admit, but it gives you the basic information you need when in flight, i.e. checklists, emergency procedures and airport data information with very nice and usable airport charts.

 

I'd like to see an Android version with fuel calculator (time, distance MTOW, MLW, WDC, calculated rotation speed etc) and NavAids. If there is an Android geek around pls give me a call, I am a real life pilot and could provide all the data necessary.

Great app, used it a lot to get weapons info while I dont have much to do.

 

Noticed there is no oxy on + test and radio to TR(+ask for engine startup) in the checklists. Would be great to have those too so I wont black out again.

Also a guide to know which weapons I need to use for my specific target would be sweet. I tend to drop the wrong kind of CBU's alot.

 

Update; an editable checklist would be a good solution.

You can develop iBlachshark? an application for DCS Black Shark 2. I and other virtual pilots ka50, we greatly appreciate.

 

That would mean I finally have to really learn how to use the ABRIS and all the other systems so I'd know what would be useful in an App! ;) Yes, that was a thought I had awhile back, perhaps another app for BS... I'd be open to suggestions to what the community would want to see in it, I just don't have as much experience in BS as I do in A-10 right now.

 

Unfortunately, it would probably take a little time before I can get to it since I'm really busy right now with work, developing another app, and I still have lots of things I want to do with the iWarthog to improve/enhance it. But I haven't forgotten about you guys and certainly would like to contribute to the BS community as well!

Thank you so much for that useful app.

There is on "but": maybe most of us are using different checklists.

 

I think you have the checklist data in a plist file which you read at startup?

What's about the following suggestion?

 

With IOS 5 (or 4) we may copy files via iTunes to the app. What do you think about reading this checklist.plist file, if it exists (was copied to the app)? Otherwise you read your default checklist data as you do now by default.

 

This would be an immense improvement of usability for you app!

 

If I may help you give me some PM - I did some small iPhone projects also but I'm not the IOS guru. (And I have no commercial interests in this topic, don't worry. I'm just looking for interesting projects to improve my knowledge).

Sickdog,

Seeing as you don't have the time to make improvements and you aren't selling this, ever thought of just posting the source code on something like GitHub and letting others who have the time improve it?

Seriously awesome app, thanks so much for making this, really appreciate your work on it. I'll be donating asap.

 

Edit: Suggestion (but from the looks of it others have suggested as well- an expanded RWR section would be sweet, maybe something similar to the RWR Threats PDF from the DCS User files?)

 

Another cool thing to add to the app would be Operational Brevity Words and Terminology, recently found these sources and they really helped me out, might be nice to have em handy in the app:
