Cool
New app to find out where your buddies are flying (and when)...

I know I clearly have too much time on my hands, BUT, my new iPhone app (don't worry, it's coming on Android soon), let's ANYBODY, anywhere find their buddies and see when they are flying. It's called Who's Flying Where and you can get it here:

iTunes Store

Here's what it does:

-Discover who is flying.
-Search by buddy list.
-Tap a buddy’s name for their full schedule.
-Customize your buddy list at anytime by adding or eliminating names.
-Customize notifications from all, some or none of your buddies.
-Discover who is flying at your favorite locations.
-Use a radius search or specific location search for out-of-town events.
-Check to see who’s there at any time.
-Make the spot one of your favorites.
-Make changes to the name, location or permitted activities of the venue.
-Users can create new sites on the fly and edit any site in the system. Users keep the data fresh.
-Log your flight plan for any venue in 5 seconds.
-Setup your flight schedule for tomorrow or the entire year!
-Every venue has a map, list of permitted flight activities and a primary and secondary name field.
-Set your system up to automatically generate a notice the moment you arrive at your flying site.
-Set up buddy notification to receive instant messages when your buddies check into a flying site or schedule an upcoming flight plan.
-Your favorite spots show up first for easy access.
-Automatically post your flight status to Twitter and Facebook.

Give it a try. It's free and I think you'll use it (as long as your friends use it of course).

SORRY guys! I had two "https://" markers in the link. I edited that so it should work now.

Here's the link again: iTunes Store

I assume the email function or notification works when you the GPS matches your flying site co-ordiantes. Does it send an email or notificaiton if the location does not change for a certain time as opposed to just driving by

I'll try it, sounds like a great idea. Hope I can get other club members to install and use it!

Yes, it matches up the GPS. No email; just a notification through the phone (if you activate that feature).
