App Update: X-Plane 9

On September 24, 2008

Jim is a HUGE fan of X-Plane 9.

The app just received an update tonight. The quick summary, in the words of the developer is that

…this version is faster, smoother, more flexible, and a bit easier to use… have at it! You really should get this update to further tune your flying experience!

Included in the update are…

–25% higher frame-rates 

–a calibration screen for the accelerometers.

–higher contrast to make it easier to read.

–re-organized interface that is more powerful and easy to use.

–instruction reminder in the center of the screen to invoke view and settings controls.

 I’ve tried it too and… good thing they aren’t REAL planes.
