The Android™ apps on this page work great with the vast majority of Android-based mobile phones (smartphones), tablets, and similar devices - however, they are NOT intended for use with your PC, Mac, or iPhone / iPad.
Apps including ours for Android devices are available for purchase via Google's Android App Market and/or Amazon's Android App Store. If you have a compatible Android-based device, you are welcome to purchase our Android apps from the Google Play (formerly known as the Android App Market) and/or Amazon Android App Store.
Our Android apps (programs) have been needed to be specifically designed, programmed, and tested (a process involving hundreds to thousands of hours and specialized skills and tools) to work on Android devices and they certainly do work great on them. However, this also means that they work on compatible Android devices only--purchases made via the Google Play and/or Amazon Android App Store are not compatible with and will not work on, for example, your PC, Mac, or iPhone/iPad.
If you'd like to use a given app for both your Android device and its equivalent piece of software for your PC, Mac, or iPhone/iPad (where one is available), as some people do in order to get 'the best of both worlds', you would need to purchase these separately. This 'a la carte' system ensures that you pay for only that which you intend to use and is fair to all involved.
We thank you for your understanding.

How do I purchase the Android™ versions?
Click on one of the links above. This will take you to the Android™ AppMarket™ where you can purchase it just like any other App for your Android device.
I have an Samsung Galaxy Tab™, Xoom, or other Android tablet / larger screen / higher resolution device Will the graphics be 'matively™-sized?`
Yes! Our RideReady apps are designed to naturally contour themselves to fit a number of screen sizes and resolutions.
Is one of the apps sufficient to prepare me for my FAA Practical Test (checkride?)
While you should always supplement your study with additional sources, such as your aircraft`s POH/AFM/RFM, in general, yes, RideReady can be your primary source for checkride preparation. Thousands of pilots have enjoyed checkride success after seeing that the vast majority of questions they were asked during their checkrides were covered in RideReady. It is a complete checkride oral preparation system.
I want to use both the PC and Android™ software. Can I get a discount?
Unfortunately, the app must be purchased separately if you`d like to use both. The reason is that the Android apps must be purchased via an App Market and there is no effective way for us to fairly integrate sales with our database of PC users.
Are the Android™ apps up to date?
Here's the really cool thing - the Android™ apps feature a built-in update mechanism. What this means is that with just a few clicks, our app will check the internet for updated data and download them to your device as necessary. This is integrated, fast, and free for those who have purchased the app.
Do I need to be online to use the apps?
No, you don't! Once an app is installed on your device (after you purchase it from the iTunes™ AppMarket), you don't need to be actively connect it to use it. This means, for example, that you can spend your time in a passenger seat of an automobile or aircraft studying even when you don't have an active internet connection. Of course, you need to have an internet connection to your device to get updates from our servers from time to time, but as far as everyday use goes, you certainly do NOT have to be connected to the Internet.
When does my app purchase expire?
Pursuant to the terms of the AppMarket EULA, this is a LIFETIME PERSONAL LICENSE to use the app. In other words, it doesn't expire! It will be waiting for you when you need this. Compare this to our competitor whose more expensive product has very short expiration dates, forcing you to pay extortionate continuation fees if you want to keep studying before a test or review later on.
How many questions are in the apps?
The apps feature the same number of questions as the PC software. This varies depending on the title and, occasionally, teh specific aircraft you have selected, but in general for the titles in the airplane and helicopter sections, there are around one thousand questions in each title (a little more for some, a little less for others). For titles in the "other titles" section, it`s closer to a few hundred per title.
