** Just Released ** JF App V2.0 for iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch – and Android

Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch Users:

Since September 2019, we have been working to obviate the sometimes inconvenient and unacceptable issues created when iOS updates occur, as they do – inevitably. We actively sought a long-term solution to address all future iOS updates.

We are proud to announce the release, overnight, of the Jacobson Flare App V2.0 for the iPad, iPhone and  iPod Touch, with additional content and improved functionality, appearance and descriptions.

What’s New?

A comprehensive update, comprising

Enhanced diagrams

Additional topics
– Going around
– Reference Groundspeed technique (RGS)
– Summary of the Problem Issues with the 100yo Conventional   Techniques
– Summary of the Advantages of the Jacobson Flare

New base software and layout to facilitate future app development

Videos and 5 operating calculators are hosted externally
– These now require internet connection, to access; (this is to minimise in-flight risks – the rest of the App is installed on your device.)

Removal of bugs


Important Notes for previous Jacobson Flare App for iPad Owners

 If you have previously purchased The Jacobson Flare App on your iPad, you can download it for free on all your other iOS devices, including iPhone, as long as you’re using the same Apple ID.

On some devices the ‘cloud’ icon will appear, acknowledging a previous purchase of the JF App and the app can be downloaded.

However, on other devices, (including our own!) we have learned that the App Store sometimes falsely displays the purchase buttonAs long as you’re signed in to the same Apple ID, you can just go ahead and download the app, even though the App Store falsely displays the purchase button, displaying the current price. Just go ahead and select that button, as though you intend to purchase the app. A pop-up window should appear, as displayed here, below right and no additional charge should be made.

If you have any doubt:
please reach out to Appstore Support at https://getsupport.apple.com/?caller=cups.
Select Apps & software > App Store > Subscriptions & purchases.

If you have already been charged, please have your Apple ID and your Order ID on your Receipt ready. An AppStore agent will guide you and process your refund. You may select chat or schedule a call back whichever one is more convenient for you.


Android Users:

There is some great news for you, too!

We have also taken this opportunity to answer the many requests received and are about to release the NEW Jacobson Flare App for ANDROID V1.0.

Our team is completing the set-up and final testing and planning to release by early March, 2020. 

We shall keep you informed of progress. (It was released on 9 March 2020 –dj)
