Can anyone recommend any iPad optimized aviation Apps? Also, how would you rate your experience with the iPad in the cockpit? Is it all you thought it would be, or it becoming too cumbersome? How do you like flying with it so far?

Fella at our last chapter meeting says his iPad works great in flight
using GPS without 3G on. Another guy said his multiple XPDR altitude
reporting problems requiring frequent "ground checks good" trips to the
avionics shop stopped after ATC told him to turn OFF his cellphones (not
just stop using, turn the switches off) and his mode C instantly
corrected the 4500 feet it had been off.
Do NOT use the 3G feature in flight. I called the FCC this morning.
3G frequencies are for cellphones, and no matter what the manufacturer
calls the device, if it uses cellphone frequency bands, it is subject to
CFR 47 section 22.925. Period. Do not transmit in flight. End of
argument. Don't go all caps on me, I didn't do it, look it up for

Not that is directly in line with the topic, but here's something I've noticed about taking people with cell phones flying. Almost always AT&T phones cause interference with the avionics in the planes I fly. I've never had an issue with the Verizon phones. Most of that has to do with the difference network technologies they use. The GSM networks seem to always cause issues.

I have ForeFlight on my iPod Touch and love it. I thnk it would be freakin' awesome on a iPad with its much larger screen.
