X-Plane 9 Flight Simulator For The iPhone

When it comes to flight simulators for the PC there are those who swear by Microsoft’s Flight Simulator, and those who swear by Laminar Research’s X-Plane. And if you’re a fan of the latter, and own an iPhone or an iPod Touch running the 2.0+ firmware, you’ll be happy to hear that Laminar Research has actually released a version of their popular flight sim software for Apple’s touch screen devices.

While the ‘mini’ version of X-Plane 9 is no where near as expansive as the PC version (it weighs in at 6.2MB, as opposed to X-Plane’s PC installer which ships on 6 dual-layer DVDs) you do get your choice of 4 different planes (all light aircraft) and options for controlling the weather and general flight conditions. And instead of a having to rely on a joystick for flying, X-Plane 9 uses the iPod Touch or iPhone’s accelerometer to make the device itself a flight yoke, requiring you to turn or tilt it to steer the aircraft. So far the reviews for the sim seem pretty positive, and at just $9.99 from the App Store it’s seriously making me re-think my ‘free apps only’ policy.
