Apple iPad
I had the opportunity to test SkyVector.com on a new Apple iPad yesterday. The display is great, even readable in direct sunlight. The problem with SkyVector.com is, however, that the iPad uses the same type of browser as the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch and therefore has the same issues with SkyVector.com as those devices (see the earlier posts about iPhone). Specifically, I could not get the following things to work: - grab-and-drag a course line or a waypoint in the Flight Plan - right-click (to get info or add a waypoint) This means that working with SkyVector.com on iPad is very difficult. I understand that fixing this will not be easy. My question is: does anyone have a workaround for these issues to make SkyVector.com usable on these devices? Just being able to simulate a right-click would help enormously. Rene PS: I suspect that the source of the problem is twofold: a) There is no way to generate a right click because there is no right mouse button and no way to simulate a right mouse button and b) there is no way to grab-and-drag (or click-and-drag), because the iPad's browser or operating system intercepts all finger gestures and interprets them as navigation input, rather than passing them to the JavaScript application of SkyVector. Specifically, click-and-drag is used to scroll and pan the display.

sounds like skyvector needs to create an app for iPad. Hope they do. I will go buy one right now!

Why does skyvector have to
Why does skyvector have to create an app? This is typical Apple arrogance. Why not fix the Ipad / Safari to work like safari on the Mac and explorer on Windows.

It's not apple's fault
There is no click-and-drag on the iphone/ipad. We need to work on a unique solution for this.

I'd like to see an iPad App or fix
If you need someone to test any iPad-related fixes or an iPad app, consider my hand raised. Would love to see either an app or a fix. I don't need flight planning features but am lost without the drag to scroll capabilities. SkyVector does look beautiful on iPad.

cancel & change SkyVector course lines
I have a MAC PowerBook...How do I eliminate prior course lines ? thks.

Couple of ways
1.You can click on the waypoint dots, then click "Delete" Open the Flight plan panel if it isn't already open by clicking on "Flight Plan" 2. As you mouse over the icon for each waypoint you should see a small red delete button appear. Click it to remove a waypoint; 3. You can clear the entire plan by clicking on the "Clear button" Watch video for more on editing flight plans.

This explains the browser
This explains the browser behaviour in Safari on the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad. It has to do with the fact that the touch interface is NOT a mouse pointer, therefore the click-and-drag paradigm does not apply. http://www.quirksmode.org/blog/archives/2008/08/iphone_events.html If any 'anonymous' people don't understand what's described in that link, they aren't qualified to comment on what Apple "ought" to do with Safari. It's not "Apple arrogance", it's technology evolving and the web catching up. Just like it has done with many other changes since 1995.

I got two words for this Backwards Compatibility. All manufactures do this. Apple in their arrogance did not. To quote Webster: "An attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions". Sounds like Apple to me, and a lot of other people.

click and drag on iPad
I have seen "touch hold and drag" in iPad apps. This is very similar to "click and drag".

An app similar to the Google earth app for the iPad should do the trick to format the iPad to navigate Skyvector. Google earth works great after you download the free app. Bill www.sportairnewengland.com

Drag on ipad
Skyvector could develop an app that lets you drag a map. Foreflight did this and it works great. also apple COULD implement a drag function. the excellent remote desktop app Jump Deskto let's you both right click and click and drag. Rt clicks you just hold the finger down for a second, drag is quick tap followed by a drag. they also have a neat little mouse circle control to move the mouse pointer with you finger offset. Apple could add this to safari to make it more compatible with various websites - maybe a toggle to turn it off or on.
Dave
It's coming soon
We've got an ipad and are busy working out the "touch gestures" which are available to the browser, just different from the old mouse events. Hopefully we'll have something for you to test soon. -dave

iPad App
What am i missing... I can not/do see a SkyVector App for the iPad in the App Store... Please where can i find it?
Dave
Not done yet
We know that many users are eager to use an iPad App. We are working hard to build a quality product that complies with all of the app store guidelines. As much as we would like to be done, this is not a process that can be rushed.

One problem is that the
One problem is that the iPhone iPad gps doesn't seem to work in airplane mode. To make matters worse you need a cellular connection to download maps that are not already stored (i.e. Google Maps). I'm kicking around the idea of writing an app that uses in a plug-in GPS but the challenge is that without maps it wouldn't do much good. SkyVector, any interest in a joint venture?
Dave
GPS can still work.
You don't want airplane mode, you can just turn off wifi and and cell data. We are already working on an app that will work "plugs out" with maps stored on board.

READING A NY TERMINAL AREA CHART ON MY IPAD
I realize this is very basic stuff but can anyone help me the following so I can make use of the NY TAC on sky vector I can navigate through sky vector far enough to click on TAC's, then on the NY area. What comes up is only a piece of the entire chart and I am unable to scroll left to right unless I decrease the scale but if I do that the graphics/ print become too small to read. If I choose the scale that shows the whole chart and use my fingers like on an iPhone to expand any one area of the chart I want to zoom in on then that area becomes so grainy I can't read it. Is there a better way? Also, how does one remove the top bar of sky vector options/ data from the chart so I can see the area covered up by it? What about green dots for westher which is very cool- when does that wx update? Can I get the newest wx by refreshing somehow and if so how? Right now all I'm looking to use the site for are VFR sectionals and TACS on my iPad. I would really appreciate any input on the above! Many cheers and happy flying! Mark rblauson@aol.com

Working now.
Sorry it took so long, but the iPad (and iPhone and iPod) are now supported.

Skyvector App for iPad
I guess by "working now" you mean on Safari. Of course you need to be connected to the net via wifi or 3G for Safari. Are you planning to deploy an App that would run on the iPad without a net connection.....something we can take flying with us?
