  • Used to be a good program.

    I have used WingX for several years now but the latest revision is driving me to switch to ForeFlight. The split screen is not supported on my older iPad and with the airport map open in the route my system crashes. Support is slow and lacking.
  • Customer Support Lacking

    Over the past couple of months I have been trying to resolve a high resolution map loading issue. Initially, they had me delete and reload database but steps did not resolve issue. I sent them screen shots and follow on information. Last I heard was they had submitted defect to tech team and have not responded to further inquiries on status of defect. Very frustrating and poor customer service to not even respond.
  • Do not upgrade to the latest version

    ADS-B radar has zero transparency. If there is rain out there, the maps will be useless. It used to be the best app out there. Bummer.
  • Functional, Full-Featured Flight App

    I have been using WingX since it was on the Compaq iPaq and I absolutely love it. The wealth of features and functionality is outstanding and the support and improvements in the software let me know Hilton Software is committed to this app and the pillows that use it. I highly recommend it.
  • Runs hot on iPad mini, stratux ahrs glitch

    Using the latest pro version on iPad mini 3 w/128 gig. iPad runs slow and hot with WingX . Stratux W/ AHRS synthetic vision just does not work. Jumps all over the place. Support at WINGX said something about “older low memory iPads being challenging”. Wow. How much hardware does it need? I got it free as a Veteran, but it's tough to justify the hassle. I certainly wouldn’t pay for this. Prolly go back to FF.
  • No traffic since update.

    Long time user. Since the last update I have lost traffic. I contacted customer service and they admitted this is a knowledge issue. No ETA on fix. This was over a month ago. Wing X used to be the best. No longer is.
  • The new release is a big regression

    WingX used to load and react to user input much faster than ForeFlight. This new release has made the maps so slow and sluggish, almost unusable. Even foreflight is faster than that!
  • Disappointed

    All the hype of a new release was extremely disappointing. No new look , no new features to keep up with the competition (Foreflight ). A stagnant company that seems to have no interest in improving their app. I’ve been a long time user of WingX for the about 5 years , which I used with my DUAL XPGPS 170, and then recently purchased a Stratus 3 for the AHRS as a back up for my Cherokee. That’s about the only thing new with the new release as it now works with the Stratus AHRS (kinda) The apereo Stratus Horizon app is still a better , more consistent app for the AHRS. So , all in all , not very impressive on Hilton’s so called new release. I think I will be switching to Foreflight.
  • Killed my EFB. Beware won’t work on iPad Air 2

    No warning whatsoever about non functioning maps on older machines. Unacceptable. Have been a loyal user for many years. That’s done. beware

    Downloaded the update today, and am still waiting for the TERPS alternate mins and takeoff mins to become scrollable documents. Anyone else like to see this? I’ve been asking for 3+ years.
