Volanta, a free flight tracking and community tool, has just been updated to version 1.3. The all-new version focuses on new ways to import your flights, the ability to tag flights and be faster overall.
One of the most-requested features finally makes an appearance with Volanta 1.3; the ability to import as CSV file. If you have saved flights in that file format, you can now manually import them into Volanta adding them to your collection of flights in the app. Once done, you can now also tag flights allowing you to arrange them into specific categories.
Other new features include the fact that aircraft now have ‘home’ locations, you can now pre-file flights on IVAO and also filter flights based on new conditions. Furthermore, those of you who use FlightGear can now track your flights with Volanta.
Speed also saw a huge improvement with the new update. Finding flights and viewing them is now much faster than before.
Another area that’s been improved with version 1.3 is accessibility. Translations for various languages have been updated, whilst the app is now better for users with screen readers.
You can get the new update of Volanta simply by opening up the app and downloading the new update. If you haven’t already tried it out, you can get access to Volanta for free from their website.
To get the most out of Volanta, you will want to pick up a Volanta Premium subscription. The Premium features include unlimited 4K screenshot uploads, access to schedules, cloud saves and much more. You can sign up for AU$6.35 (excluding tax) per month.
