Infinite Flight Released to Google Play, $5 for Some Top Notch Flight Simulation

Infinite Flight

This week on Google Play, one of the top flight simulator apps for mobile devices, Infinite Flight, finally launched to Android. From the boom in sales and positive feedback, I’d say it’s safe to say that this is a good one. For $5, the app features 27 different aircrafts to choose from, as well as the ability to fly around all major airports with accurate runway and taxiway layouts. 

There are a ton of features that I know nothing about, so go give it a look over and get to flying.

Play Link ($4.99)

Cheers David!

  • just say so

    Bought the game, played a few hours, now im ready to fly real AIRCRAFTS.

    • xpyroxcorex

      seems legit

  • Larry Bublitz

    Seems like plenty of content for $5… will grab if I ever get a game controller for Nexus 7 (1st world problems, I know.)

    • just a friend

      Root, sixaxis app, ps3 controller.
      The only way to game on the N7!

      • Larry Bublitz

        Thanks! Will do! :-)

  • Roberto Taylor

    Queue the paranoid people saying how this realistic game is going to help terrorists…

  • Ian Smith

    Aircraft is both singular and plural e.g. the pilot boarded his aircraft and took off; we watched as aircraft of all shapes and sizes filled the sky.

    This is not top notch flight simulation haha. PMDG 737 NGX, that’s top notch flight simulation. If anyone can buy it and fly it without reading 3,000 pages of documentation, it isn’t top notch.

    • morpheus282

      If I want to read 3,000 pages of documentation, I’ll get a real pilot’s license. If I want to open an app and have a little fun, I’ll get this app which appears to offer a top notch flight simulation for a mobile device.

      As Trin Tragula’s wife often said to him – sometimes as often as thirty eight times in a single day – “have some sense of proportion!”

    • Matt

      Dev here, we’re doing the best we can considering we’re running on a mobile platform. Ultimate goal is having PMDG style details, but there’s a long way to go :)

      • jt

        I didn’t mean to sound insulting, I was just pointing it out. I certainly don’t expect an aircraft of the same level that runs around 25 FPS on a 2.93ghz i7 computer with 16 gigs of ram and a brand new video card with 2 gigs of video memory will run just as well on a phone haha!

    • Ryan

      FYI, the PMDG 737 NGX is only an aircraft, not a flight simulation all by itself.

      Though I have flown the original for FS2004, good aircraft though. But I’m having reserves about purchasing their aircraft right now. I can’t say anything about the FSX version, but so far, the LSH Maddog MD80 is by far the most advanced aircraft on the market from all the paywares I’ve flown.

      I don’t expect this to reach the level of what FSX is capable of considering its for the mobile platform. I love to fly, but think I’ll keep it on the desktop as I fly pretty well with the joystick I use.

        Why did Microsoft have to go and screw up that franchise??? I live Flight Simulator. The new “Flight” is awful.

        • Ryan

          It’s Microsoft, need I say more? =P

          • Nick V

            I wish you didn’t have to, but… ;)

            Still, Flight Simulator was the one thing they did right every other release. It was a great application, and I still use FSX once a week or more.

          • Ryan

            Flight Gear is an ok Open Source Flight sim I played a few years ago, but I can’t say the community for it was the best. There’s only so few aircraft that are even fully featured. Of course, much could change since I last played it, but I think I’ll stick to FS9 or FSX. (I honestly prefer FS9, I had like 25 different payware addons for it, all defunct due to an OS reinstall..)

            I think the only reason Microsoft Flight failed pretty hard was because it was catered to be a bit more user-friendly and was a different step than its predecessors. Who knows, I haven’t even touched it due to the negative reviews it was getting within the Flight Sim community.

          • Nick V

            I tried MS Flight, and it was downright horrible. They are moving towards IAP for more planes and terrain. I just want a relaxing flight sim. X-Plane is great, but it is so much work, you forget to relax.

      • jt

        True, the NGX is not a simulation all by itself, but really all FSX alone gives you is another crappy flight simulation software. You’ve gotta get tons of addons for it to be realistic. If you really get into it, you get to the point where all FSX is giving you is the flight module, which some aircraft have their own. To the guy earlier saying if you want to read 3,000 pages of documentation you’ll get a real license. I’ve been simming for 6 years and am now training for my license, and both of it is a lot of fun, but if you really get into simulation, and you read those 3,000 pages, you learn so much. I went into my flight school with a decent knowledge of aviation because of my simming. I haven’t thought about finding a good payware MD-80, just because I really don’t wanna spend all that time learning such an analog aircraft, even though it’s a totally different experience. Coolsky has a PMDG level DC-9, which looks like a lot of fun to fly, but I’ve spent so much time in the NGX it’ll be hard for me, and it’s very difficult not having FS2Crew in advanced aircraft, especially such a manual one like a DC-9. Flying SIDS and STARs without a GPS by yourself in a 2 man aircraft. That’s tough.

        • Ryan

          Indeed. Microsoft really is the only company to bring any decent flight sim though. There is IL-2 though, but that’s more for specific tasks where MS Flight Sim is a general simulator. I haven’t played MS Flight myself, but I have heard some negative things about it.

          The MD-80 is a good aircraft in its own right. I mainly like it for two reasons: engines are in the rear of the aircraft, and its relatively easy to fly either way. I actually don’t fly with FS2Crew myself. I did for a while during my FS9 days until an OS reinstall just about wiped anything good of my install and I switched to FSX since I found a good deal for the Gold edition. Other than that, fly a Boeing and you’ve about flown them all with a little bit of a learning curve.

          • jt

            You probably will no longer look at this as I just remembered this post, but don’t bother with MS Flight. It’s not flight simulation, it’s a game. It has great graphics and stuff, but it’s a game. Simple as that. A new version of FSX with some of the behind the scene things flight has would have been AWESOME! The future of flight simulation is far from dead though, with the possibility of a civil aircraft version of DCS, and depending on what Lockheed Martin does with Prepar3d, it could be very nice. Right now prepar3d sucks, since it’s a lot of money for something not all that better at the time, but if they’re working on a totally new updated sim, and especially if it supports FSX aircraft like it currently does, that would be SWEET! Hey, I trust Lockheed a lot every time I fly with weather briefings, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on flight simming.

          • Ryan

            I get email notifications.

            Anywho, I looked into Prepar3D actually, but its way too expensive for me. But I do like Lockheed Martin, considering they have built some of my favorite military aircraft. I think it does have some support for FSX aircraft, but others may be glitchy. I know some airports have support, such as the FSDT ones. Still waiting for whats next from FSDT actually, they made a great KDFW airport. Just wish they could update KLAS or something.

  • Chris Schmucker

    Heads up! Very glitchy on the Gnex (which is understadable considering the hardware) think twice before buying.

    • Matt

      We’ve received good feedback from the Galaxy Nexus users, what kind of glitches are you seeing?

      • Chris Schmucker

        It would run smooth for a few seconds followed by a few seconds of a glitchy animation and keep doing that. As if the processor is really struggling to keep up with the graphics.

        • Matt

          We’ve seen this happen on some devices for various reasons, most popular being a background task using the CPU or the CPU/GPU overheating.

          • Chris Schmucker

            Ill try that and update you. Assuming your the developer, kudos for being involved/proactive with the forums

          • Matt

            Yep, I’m one of the two devs working on this app. We try our best to keep up with our users and catch problems early :)

          • Chris Schmucker

            Closed all apps. Still glitchy. And my phone gets ridiculously hot! I wont uninstall it though seems like a fun game.

          • Matt

            Thanks, it’s work in progress, it’s very CPU/GPU intensive, there’s no way around the heat problem. For the glitches, we’ll try to find the cause and reduce them to a minimum.

  • wickets

    thanks for the heads up….now if only goog play had a wish list via desktop etc

    • Mallahet

      Seriously. I hate having to open the store on my phone/tablet just to wishlist something..

      • michael arazan

        I purchased Air Navy Fighters for half the price, F!* simulators are Free in the Play Store, and a lot of fun, Carrier landings are freaking hard as hell

  • http://www.theprogrocker.com/ John

    I may buy this just to crash planes…Can anyone verify that crashing planes is awesome in this app?

    • breadable

      No fly list here we come!

      • aye_winchell

        Asiana Air here we come…Too soon?

    • Brent Cooper

      Downloading as I type. I’ll let you know soon as i get in the game!

    • Brent Cooper

      It just stops the game when you crash. Nothing fun about it. However, The flying is very fun!

    • Matt

      Dev here, you can definitely crash but there’s no visual destruction of the airplanes. You can however review the flight leading up the crash with a replay system that supports slow motion :)

    • decidedtochangename

      Careful, PRISM is watching.

  • Jimbo

    Plural form of aircraft is also aircraft. :)

    • atcchris

      Totally beat me to it! Aircrafts is like “deers”

      • Ian

        Or sheeps!

        • I-Troll-U

          Or goats!!

          Oh wait…

    • http://www.theprogrocker.com/ John

      it doesn’t sound right though (I know aircraft is the correct plural version) but still. It’s like explaining a past thunderstorm “It was thundering and lightening out”…sounds goofy as hell.

    • morpheus282

      If the plural form of goose is geese, why isn’t the plural form of moose referred to as meese?

      • David Verba

        Another fun fact: It’s Canada Goose & Geese. Not Canadian.

        • deadpenguins

          Ha! I have now acquired my daily bit of trivial knowledge for the day.

      • that’s racist

        It is in ebonics.
