We didn't have any issues with iOS 5.0, it seems like this started with 5.1. We're looking into it, it'll get fixed eventually, as an avid user myself, this has been bugging me as well

I was quite impressed with the Windows Phone 7 version of Infinite Flight, so I know it's going to get better, but for now I'm a little disappointed.
We're aware of the issues happening when entering unusual attitudes. I'm responsible for the flight model so this is my area. Optimizations of the low lift situations is on my plate for future updates

It's great to see you taking these comments on the chin, and acknowledging them. As a developer myself I hate to write negative comments on a forum like this, but I think it's only fair to be honest. I'm really looking forward to your future updates.

It's only fair, the sim is its early days still, and we're still tuning things. Being on iOS for 4 days has brought more feedback than 11 months on Windows Phone, we need to process it all, prioritize and execute.

We're already fixed the multitasking issues this morning, it won't make it into the next update but the one after that since we already pushed 1.1. And at the moment, I'm working on fixing the rudder and unusual attitude issues. I probably won't be able to fix them all unfortunately but I'll try

Thanks a lot for your comments

If you have a way to consistently reproduce this issue, we'd love to know how

Thanks!

The inverting of the left/right controls happens when I end a flight with a plane and then select another plane. Then the controls will automatically invert. If I go back and select the first plane again, the controls will work again. Sometimes the controls gets inverted when I end a flight and start a new flight with the same settings. So unfortunately I can’t point out a single and specific situation where the problem occurs.

I'm using a iPhone 4S 16 GB with iOS 5.1

Just to confirm, did you change the orientation of the device in the mean time? (home button on the left to right or vice versa)

Thanks

Please, can you add multi-touch support in a future update? When landing, I like to keep my thumb on the throttle so I can adjust it without looking across at it, but then I can't adjust the flaps at the same time.

Yes, that's on my plate, I'm finishing some work on the map and I'll try to stick this one in.
It's bugging me too

No I didn't change the orientation at all. Maybe I should delete the App and install it again? But it's weird if I'm the only one with this problem.

You shouldn't have to uninstall, when this happens, can you go in the menu (tap on screen and tap on "Menu" then "Calibrate")

Let me know if this fixes it, thanks
