any update on those cool new features that were going to be announced at Osh Kosh?
I hope that Osh Kosh was a big hit for you. The Ultimiate planner is interesting - but I was really hoping for some announcements around the more signigicant issues - like customer support etc...
I hope that you had a successful trip to the big airshow. In the weeks leading up to Osh Kosh you mentioned that serveral big things were being announce there and that we'd hear about them when the show was over....
well of all of my wishes - this one is lower on the list :)
But think of it this way. Currently i print out regular 8.5 x 11 sheets. The pages print in order - and if I use two sided printing - I end up with a nice package (albiet alot of pages). I staple it down the left side and I have a handy little 'flight booklet'.
But it's too big.
If it was just like that but on smaller paper (half sheet) that would be awesome. The 'kneeboard' option now allows me to print it off two to a page - but then you have to manually cut the pages in half- collate them back in order - and put them together as a booklet - that works pretty good also - except there is no two side printing.
I'm just looking to 'shrink' it down - if that makes sense.
There is an interesting third party app called ClickBook [http://bit.ly/9lFmef] that provides a bit of a work around - but it does scale the PDF pages oddly and the maps distort a bit.
Thanks for staying with this one :) but again, as wish list items go - this one falls much farther down the page that some of the other things we've discussed.
I'm looking forward to your post OshKosh updates....
that was an original goal .... i just like that half sheet format better
Thanks for the response. It is good to know that you are working on new stuff. I won't be at OshKosh - but i'll hold on till after that to take a look at the new stuff.
For what it's worth - a couple suggestions....
While I appreciate your respone to my note - it did take you 8 days. In the world of web based internet applications - that's like lifetimes. Perhaps you should think about beefing up your aeroplanner staff with a volunteer or two that would spend some time on the forum every day - responding to comments, providing announcements - at the least letting people know there is someone on the other end of those posts. While it is quite possible that your staff is simply too busy to check the fourm - the perception is gives is that you don't care.
Consider changing up the front page now and then. That way when people log in - they will notice changes - and that will instill some confidence that there are actually live people at aeroplanner.
Let us peek behind the scenes. Start a blog and give a weekly snapshot of what's happening, bios of some of the employees, teasers about new features.
Aeroplanner is a good product - but it's stale. The web interface is generations old and support is nearly non-existant. I suspect your churn rate is growing (though that's just a guess).
I don't want to see this fade away ......
I've been a paying premium member for some time now - but I'm beginning to lose faith. I haven't seen much new in awhile, there isn't much happening here in the forums, I never get the 'newsletter', and I'm beginning to wonder if $150 a year would be better spent some other way. I plan a flight and end up with 70+ pages of TripTick that seems cumbersome and not all that useful (although it is what hooked me in the first place).
Additionally, I've gotten a few too many error messages - or site time out issues lately.
Is there anyone here that can help convince me to stay? Is there anyone out there with a 'I love this thing' story? Can someone show me the value I’m getting for my $12.95 a month?
I'm totally serious here - no sarcasm intended. I think the product is way cool - but not way useful.....
That's a bit better. Nice work around...
I'm just wondering how other users are doing here. Do you print out and use the entire PDF trip tick? A typical 3-hour flight for me generates 75 pages...
How do you use the trip tick when you fly?
Love the kneeboard view and the ability to print the two up - BUT - why not allow me to print on half sheets (5.5"x8.5"). I don't like the folding and unfolding required when they are printed 2up.
