What is the best Flight Simulator app ?

There are millions ( well not quite ) of flight simulator apps for the iphone and ipod touch, but the one question that many users ask is ' which is the best ' Many people comment and recommend the games like X-Plane or Infinite Flight etc, but which would you recommend and why ?

Hi,

Being one of the developers of Infinite Flight, I'm obviously biased about which of the sim is the best

However, what's cool about Infinite Flight is:
- Detailed airplanes
- Liveries
- Good flight physics
- Flight Planning
- Tons of cameras
- Autopilot and more...

I'd say the most important is that we're 100% behind this project. We've released updates every month or so, every time with new airplanes and features.
We also have a feedback site where users can leave suggestions and vote on existing ones so we can prioritize which things go in the sim first.
Our users can collectively shape the future of the simulator. Of course, there are things we can't do at the moment for lack of performance on the devices for example, but we know we'll implement them later.

The feedback site:

Here's a video of the latest version in case you haven't seen it:

Let me know if you have any questions about the app

Cheers,
Matt

X-Plane-9 HD is my favorite flight sim. Well worth the price for the content you'll get. The Apollo IAP is worth getting too.

Have you tried Infinite Flight? I'd love to know what you prefer in X-Plane over Infinite Flight, thanks

Infinite flight looks like containing more advanced Aircraft controls but when comparing to that X-Plane is good as it contains more features like shuttle craft and carrier landing

We don't have shuttle take off but we do have shuttle landing missions

Thanks for the feedback, we're hard at work on our next update, many things will change, and we've got tons of things planned for 2013!

Infinite Flight is well worth trying. The best thing about it is that the developers listen to your feedback and try to change things so that everyone is satisfied with the game
