    The only downside I see at the moment is you can't print. Occasionally I like to print my references when building a certification package for instance. Otherwise I love the search features. Saves a lot of time. Thanks!!

  • Great for looking something you already know, but not much else.

    by Southernboy214

    This is a great idea and the information is current. I pretty much used this constantly during my classes as a reference for my flash cards app more than directly studying for it. There's two reasons why I wouldn't recommend this app: 1. You cannot highlight anything. 2. You cannot make bookmarks. I was coming from the kindle version of my FAR's and I probably would not have bought the iPad version had I known that I couldn't do this.

  • Nice!!!

    by Eamador

    Very pleased, it saves you money just to buy this app rather than FAR book, and AC 43-13.

  • Decent for now

    by Global CMS

    This app has a lot of great content but lack useful tools such as the ability to create bookmarks to quickly find frequently used regs as well as the ability to export/email specific chapters.

  • Great app!!

    by RackoTech

    Excellent app, I was looking for an app like this for a loooooog time, thanks!!!

  • Functional

    by MeganT2009

    This app does have the FAR and works independent of internet access. That was my main reason for paying for the app. However, there are some issues that make it difficult to use. Some of the text formatting doesn't follow the outline structure of the FAR's (paragraph (a) is immediately followed by sentence (1) on the same line) which can make difficult finding the topics. Could be much better if the referenced sections and parts were hyperlinked for easier navigation. Bookmarks would be helpful.

  • Descent but...

    by AAmech

    So this app is pretty good though a little overpriced. Especially when the 'updates' appear as amendments and not in the main text of the Parts. And the updates are not even all there. The app says it is recent from April of 2011, but is missing information that is present in books that are using info from June 2010. Please update the content. The UI is basic but solid.
