IGC Reader is an iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad application to view and play IGC flight log files. You can open IGC files from websites and supported services or import them via iTunes and other supported applications.
Open any IGC file and position the baro to see the altitude, rate of climb, and speed at any given location. Zoom in on the map to see a more detailed flight line.
Supports metrical, imperial, and nautical units. Go to the general settings and switch from kilometer per hour (km/h) to mile per hour (mph) and even knots (kts).
Press the play button and watch the animated flight as it happened. Keep the marker centered or let it fly over your map.
Two for the price of one. You only need one application for both your iPhone/iPod and iPad, IGC Reader is built for both.
The baro graph gives you the full flight at a glance: it visualises altitude over time and distance. Double tap on the baro for a more detailed view.
Choose the Google map you feel best with. Switch the view between map, satellite, hybrid, or terrain.
There are four ways to import an IGC file:
From a website
Some websites publish IGC files from flights (e.g. Soaring Spot). Tap one of these links to open the IGC file in the application.
Copy & paste an URL
If the website doesn't detect the file automatically you can copy the URL (tap, hold, and copy). Open the IGC Reader application, tap the Import button and paste the URL.
You may have some IGC files on your computer which aren't available online. Open iTunes and connect your iPone, iPod Touch, or iPad and click the Apps tab in iTunes. Now select the IGC Reader app in the File sharing section. Choose the IGC files by clicking the Add… button. The selected files will be copied to your device and are available in the Files list in the application.
From a supported online service
New Dropbox integration
Open your files directly from your Dropbox account. And if you have the Dropbox application installed you can simply save your IGC file to a Dropbox folder.
