AOPA Editor's pick: Top 10 apps for 2012-- There's some great Ideas here, several are inexpensive


I didn't want to plagiarize the whole article from AOPA-- instead, I'll just tell you what their Top-Ten were, and give you the link to their article (they should like that):  HERE  It's short and has really good advice on these apps, they're cheap, and I think I'll pick up a couple-  The survival one, the ATC Radio One and maybe X-Plane for iPad (he said you can learn a lot from playing with it)--I already have Garmin Pilot- love it!
