Free App to Find Where Your Flying Buddies are Flying and Post Your Flight Status

SORRY GUYS, I ACCIDENTALLY CLICKED THE "MARK SOLD" BUTTON AND IT CLOSED MY THREAD! Here is the original post:

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:

www.whowhereapp.com

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).

COMES OUT ON ANDROID JAN 12, 2013

Good Job Man - I was thinking to create something similar for a while now but never had time :-) Once it's available on Android, I will try it out.

I just downloaded the app. I will give it a try. I also sent a notice out to our club. It's a great idea.
Thanks.

Help

Could someone with an android please post step by step exactly how to download this app. Please no "go to the apple store and download it free" comments. I have downloaded many "apps" but just can't figure this one out. I write 2~3hrs of code per day...just can't get this one.
Thanks
Mike

I did a search earlier and it did not come up..... will check again in a little bit.... They should make a search option for people that do not have buddies to fly with and want to find people in our area...... no?

Guys, my dev team authorized me to release it at midnight and then I went to sleep! I woke up to a message that they needed to add code to make it compatible with guys running the iOS version! SHEESH!! So I pulled it down from Google.

Here's the deal: we updated the Android version so you can enter a start and end time to your flight plan and so you could schedule more than one visit to the same field at a time. The iOS version doesn't have this and it takes Apple a WEEK to approve changes. Rather than have bugs on both apps, we have made the difficult decision to wait until we get BOTH versions equal (next Wednesday) and then release Android AFTER Apple has approved the iOS version.

Believe me, I'm ticked off at the whole thing and do appreciate your patience with us.

In future cases, go to http://www.whowhereapp.com
for updates and status. Click "Updates" for that info. Thanks again for your patience and understanding!
