SuperTrafficBoard for IOS


Recommended Posts

Hi Simon,

I've been enjoying Supertrafficboard for P3D since it was in beta. It really is an unmissable addon for the simulator.

However, if I may come with a suggestion, would you consider developing an app for the tablet users among the simmers?

There are some apps out there showing real time position / weather etc, but it would be really cool if one could track the traffic on ones Ipad.

I would even pay separate for an app like this.

Just a humble suggestion to make a great product even greater. :-)

Hi Bob,

It's an excellent suggest, but has some huge challenges:

1) I don't own an ipad or a tablet of any description for that matter;

2) STB is a .net application, and there isn't a native .net for iOS. There are third party implementations, but the starting price for that is $1000;

3) There isn't a simconnect client for iOS. Now other third parties have created FSX add-ons so must have implemented the client natively, but it's no small undertaking to do so;

4) As soon as I start down one path, I'm sure the Android community will want one also!

Times like this makes me wish the whole thing was done in Java or a Javascript technology like GWT or Sencha Touch. Portability would be much less of an issue, but that is not the Microsoft way I fear.

So I agree with you, but at the present time the obstacles are too great.
