  • Update Necessary

    By JPizzel DoJJ
    Hi Sporty’s! I’m your customer from 2014 and it is very sad that you can’t update most used app here. Specifically iPhone X support. I have this tiny screen over here to deal with. Please, update! Other necessary improvements: 1. Easy bookmarking (I know about highlights); 2. Better search engine; 3. Improve the overall look of the app; 4. Ability to synchronize bookmarks between devices (iCloud drive); 5. Ability to print!!!; 6. Endorsements for CFIs as a bonus
  • Easy to use, nice format but NOT current.

    This is nice and simple but you can highlight. BUT, it's not current and that's the whole point of referencing the FARs or AIM. It has to be current and this isn't. Gave it 3 stars instead of 2 or 1 because it was current when I purchased the app and it worked great.
  • Works

    If your looking for something flashy don't download this app. It is perfect if you are familiar with the FAR/AIM. It definitely provides you with the information intended. Hopefully Sporty's put out a more easily navigable format.

    Gets the job done, easy to use. I would love to see different color highlighting! Would be great for teaching.
  • Waste of Money

    It was a mistake to buy this app. I was looking for a replacement to my Tekk Innovations FAR/AIM app since it's paragraph indention and spacing hasn't worked properly. I figured the Sportys name provided some assurance of quality, this would be a good candidate. It is not. There is no bookmarking capability and the search capability is amateurish at best. A search for a term takes you only to the beginning of the paragraph.. you still have to scroll through screens to find the term. I would have rated this app zero stars but the review requires at least one.
  • No longer current

    By Esalley
    This app is not the current version of the FAR/AIM. The about page of the app states that the app was only current through Dec 23, 2014. The app needs to be updated!!!!
  • Out of date

    By Mjs-pilot
    As of January 22 2015 this version is put of date since August 27 2014.
  • Good Start But Needs Work

    By fixbeep
    The organization and update features are very good, but the text is super small, with no option to change font size or re-flow text. It looks like it was copied and pasted from the FAA web page.
  • Amazing App

    By Gettothachoppa
    Excellent app!!! Organizes very well. Easy to navigate. Really like the preloaded study section separated by rating, except it's based off of PT. 61. Would like to see a study option for PT 141.
  • Excellent app

    This app is a great way to view and search for anything in the far/aim. Very easy to navigate through pages and very easy to read. The highlight feature works great. The text you highlight comes up in its own tab if you ever want to look at just the important stuff. You can delete the highlighted text you don't want anymore too. The best part is you just hit the "update"button and bam you have any new updates. It works great offline too. You don't have to be connected to view the material. Well done-I really like this app.
