Laminar Research releases X-Plane for iPad


    Laminar Research has released an iPad version of its acclaimed X-Plane application. X-Plane for iPad combines many of the features of the X-Plane series of iPhone apps into a single application; the iPad version includes all 9 regions and 13 aircraft from the existing iPhone applications with 12 more regions and 27 more aircraft listed as “Coming Soon.” Users can choose to fly a wide range of different aircraft types including a Cessna 172, Boeing 747, F-22, ASK21 glider, Blackhawk Helicopter or even a Space Shuttle. Due to the larger iPad screen and more powerful CPU on the iPad, X-Plane can now display a full virtual cockpit view and more detailed, higher-resolution aircraft textures and terrain, including 3D buildings. Virtual cockpit interfaces also provide more detailed and completely interactive controls. X-Plane for iPad is available from the App Store for $10.

    I downloaded the update for xplane for iPad last week.  Ever since then it loads but does not run.  I had also downloaded the space launch app.

    Is there a fix available?  Help.

    I downloaded X-Plane on my I-pad.  It worked fine until you released an update about a week ago.  Now it loads,  shows the X-Plane log, and then the screen goes blank.  Then it exits from the application.

    We also downloaded the moon launch app with it. 

    Is there a fix coming?  How can I get it to work again?
