Putting split-screen to good use with JeppView

Just wondering if you use split-screen with JeppView on your iPad EFB.
If so, can you let me know which applications you share the screen with? e.g. Calculator, Logbook, Spreadsheet, Aeroweather, OPT, etc.

Its never occurred to me to try. I suspect Id find it to be too small to be usable though. Now if wed get the 13 inch iPads, thatd be a different matter entirely

It did not occur to me either until a short time ago, but it seems very useful. Some Apps don't work with split screen though.
I've tried having the QRH on split screen, worked out fine.

It's actually just a spreadsheet that I use for those Non-Precision approaches where there is no height vs distance table.
The 'Airports' App has a similar approach calculator in the tools section.

Where does one put the EFB? On the yoke for a Boeing. I have no idea on the Airbus?

Use a suction cup mount and stick it to the window.

A Boeing yoke is big enough to fit a full sized ipad?

I very much doubt that would be approved.

I don't know what a full sized iPad even looks like!
I do PC and Android I have several CR3s and a few E6Bs, because I'm an unashamed Neo-Luddite
Thanks guys!

This is how a previous company did it in an Airbus. The EFB, (not an iPad), slid back on those rails to clear the window opening lever, but I personally think it was a very poor fitment.

Uplinker, I still see a paper Jepp plate below the EFB!

Yes, this was a company home-brewed EFB, and it was awful ! We originally had to keep paper plates, hence the clip on the EFB !

In a previous company on 737, A320 and A330 the iPad EFB was held in a suction mount on the side window. Destroyed the window shades quite fast if pilots were not careful. Seen several other installation, including aircraft fixed mounting systems (require certification unlike the suction mounts as those are a change to the aircraft) including power delivery, usually on the lower part of the side window, in no case installed that they would interfere with the opening lever at all. Best one was easily rotatable from landscape into portrait mode which is quite nice for displaying approach charts.

Sadly, not all apps do allow split screen use, could be especially useful to have the charging app on one side and the OFP on the other in cruise, or charts on one and performance calculation on the other.

Unlinker, that is just a mess of a setup.

Dadanawa, a few of our authorized apps have split screen functionality. I have tried it but find I am magnifying and scrolling to much. I use the “four finger swipe” or swipe up with company apps fixed to the Dock to quickly cycle between apps.

Thanks Mongo, I never tried that. It's good to share ideas on this forum that may benefit us all. The application on the right is Web Manuals.

1024 pages in a QRH!

I thought ours was massively over the top, and it’s only half as many.

We had suction mounts on A320. They could allow the EFB to fall off the window, as happened to me - and it fell directly onto the A/P disconnect button on my side-stick. Peaceful cruise one minute; sudden cavalry charge and A/P disconnect the next !

I'm using Pro X ver 4.3.3. Jeppesen supports split screen, but some other apps don't. In that case, split screen would not be available with Jeppesen.
