    What's the best Flight Sim App for Ipad?
    The most realistic if possible.

    I have Backyard Pilot but that's pretty lame.

    Anyone tried Microsoft Flight Simulator?

    Thanks,

    Susie:)

    Flight Sim

    Now repeat after me Jeff "I will not buy any more game apps" But I used to love Flight Sim x Oh dear, off to the app store again:) I'm guessing this would be best played with a joystick too?

    x-Plane is awesome. Graphics are good, runs smooth on the iPad 2, and takes full advantage of the gyroscope. There are tons of planes to choose from, fully customizable weather situations, can also change the time of day. The one down side is the map areas are kind of small. For example you can't fly from New York to Chicago. You can pick NY or Chicago and many others areas and fly around that area, which are rather large. Not a huge draw back by any means. Also you can fly the space shuttle and for an extra 5 you can fly the apollo missions. The response of the plane or helicopter is very sensitive so one does not have to move the ipad around a lot to get the plane to respond. It took me a few days to get used to how much or little I had to move my device. Defiantly worth the 10 or 15 bucks. I also got a co-worker to buy this for his iPad 1 and he didn't have any complaints about how it ran with the A4 processor. He did suggest to kill all the other apps running in the back ground for the best experience.

    Quick question for anyone who can help. I've recently tried to download metalstorm and x-plane which are of course both flight sim apps, and when the download process starts the icon disappears and the app never downloads. I've been able to download every other app I've purchased without any problems. What is the deal with these flight sim apps not downloading!?! Do I need to change something in my settings so they'll download?

    sorry to resurrect such an old thread but I've just found Infinite Flight and it's an excellent sim. Great controls and life-like behaviour. Beats X Plane airliner hands down in my view.
