    I'm actually waiting for a price drop, at least to 7.99. I feel more confortable buying games at that price somehow:eek:

    Well i can see it from both sides, but calling added in game advertisements "improvements" is crazy. I'm sure it's an improvement for the dev though... I love that freeverse gave me the option to turn them off in Burning Monkey Casino.

    Just out of curiosity (cuz I don't own either app): There was a promise at some time to add helicopters to X-Plane. Has this happened? Or did they just release X-Plane-Helicopter instead and make you pay for the helicopters?

    That just sucks! It looks like they outright lied.
    :mad:

    I thought maybe X-Plane-Helicopter was a "light" version of sorts and those who have the full version would get the Choppers for free.

    yeah. and airliners were supposed to be in the full version too. and is in a seperate app. i will calm down if they put at least the different locations in the full version.
     
  9. This is even more of a piss-take now isn't it? Seriously not happy with this dev now.

    According to what he said, I doubt he will.

    I'm going to email him links to the heli thread, this thread, and the article on the TA blog. All of these have negative comments about his latest decisions. Maybe we may get some answers then.

    [EDIT] Hold on- I just read the info on the X-Plane app page. There does seem to be a fair amount of amendments to this update. Not exactly earth-shattering, but more than just advertising. I can't exactly accuse him of neglecting this app.

    Thats true. I especially appreciate the lower memory usage. Now its not so much of a chore to reboot the iPhone before playing X-Plane. But given he promised new maps, I am really surprised that he didn't load in Grand Canyon map into the original X-Plane too. This leads to this next question: Will X-Plane Airliner have yet another map that will only be on that app?

    He did not specifically say that the airliners and helicopters were going to be updated into the first X-plane. I believe he has all the right to put them in as whole new apps. Also, you should stop harassing him.

    Either way I won't be getting any of these apps, in fact I regret the $10 I spent on xplane, there isn't even good ground effects of the planes shadow, I mean come on... And this.. I just feel cheated.

    I'm okay with helicopters being in a different version. I do wish they'd add the Grand Canyon to the original though. That would be great.

    he may not have specifically said he would add new planes helicopters, but he certainly implied it. what you can't argue with is the apps description in iTunes. It says [said-he removed it today] that those who buy the app should expect FREE updates including more locations AND maps!

    Where are they? I'm considering posting all of the emails I have exchanged with him today (9 or so). He says some pretty interesting stuff.
