If you're into flight simulators and you haven't tried X-Plane 9 now is the time to do so. The popular app is now free in Google Play instead of it's normal $2.99.
I've been a fan of the app since day one, and it gives us pretty much the best flight sim experience possible on Android. You initially get to choose from 10 different types of aircraft to fly but there are in-app purchases available with 43 more planes up for grabs. Whether it's a passenger jet, a small aircraft or a state of the art fighter jet there is a load of fun to be had with X-Plane 9.
With a selection of different viewing options you really can tailor the app to suit your needs. Take my word for it - you need X-Plane 9 on your Android phone or tablet. Features of the app include:
- 6 scenery regions included (15 more available for purchase)
- 10 different aircraft of varying types (43 more available for purchase)
- Fly Dawn, Day, Dusk, Night
- Fly in VFR/IFR conditions from clear skies to overcast.
- You control the weather!
- Simulated system failures!
- Bird Strikes!
- Multiplayer over WiFi!
