I don't know anything about these bits of software, but the first few hits on Google provide

CR3 Flight Computer - Android

Aviation YAWS - TAF METAR Data - Android

What part of the world, or worldwide ? IFR, VFR or both ?

Do you need something quality like Jepp with updates etc. for actual briefing, or will you be cross-referencing to a non-Android recognised source and just want the Android app for quick research of potential ideas ?

Something like Hilton WingX or AirWX perhaps ? Or if you're in the US, one of the FAA AeronNav digital products ?

I run this on my Android phone and, using Bluestacks, on my Windows 7 Laptop.


I just had a play and it would be fair to say that it isn't brilliant for South America, but it has some stuff and you can do worse than at-least have a play with it, given that it's free.

Not an app but a website, but you could also take a look at Great Circle Mapper

If you simply want to read Jepp charts and text on your Android phone/table, you really don't need an official Jepp app. Plenty of freeware and payware PDF readers will do the job if you can get the charts in PDF format.

To do things legally, get your airline's IT or dispatch department to "print" the charts as packs from JeppView to a PDF file. That's right, you can "print" your charts so they automatically save as PDF files. Many ways to do this, CutePDF Printer is one.

Providing these charts are used by the airline employees and updated when changes occur, there is nothing illegal about this, unlike the many "cracked" Jepp installations on iPads out there.

Jeppesen Terminal charts are available on Android (Jeppesen Mobile TC):


for some (marketing?) reason only officially supported on Galaxy Samsung Tablets 8.9'' and 10.1'' - not sure why; my Galaxy S2 phone resolution is 1280x720, 8.9'' tablet's is 1280x800 - so it cannot be that...

I didn't try it, but obviously you need a Jeppesen subscription...

Got told AFTER I purchased electronic Jepp charts that their app does not work with the latest android programme, Jelly Bean. Worst thing was they told me there was nothing coming in the near future to deal with this issue either.
There are basically 2 major operating systems for Tabs, Android and Apple, Jeppesen have really dropped the ball on this one.
BTW, if anyone has any ideas on how to get Jepps onto my Galaxy tab 2, would be greatly appreciated.
