Auto Day/Night Transition
Customizing ForeFlight themes and color inversion settings is now a lot easier. The new theme manager provides you with convenient centralized control over all of the individual theme and color settings throughout the app. Select from Day, Night or with Auto mode, ForeFlight will automatically transition between the Day and Night themes at sunrise and sunset, helping your eyes adjust to changing light levels with no app interaction needed.
Bullseye™ in Military Flight Bag
ForeFlight Military Flight Bag (MFB) pilots can now access Bullseye, a powerful feature for measuring distances and directions from an arbitrary point on the map. Bullseye is specifically designed to enhance mission planning and tactical decision-making by providing a secure frame of reference that can be shared among many pilots.

Flight Planning Enhancements
Continuing our drive to make flight planning in ForeFlight more powerful and efficient, this release also includes a number of noteworthy improvements to flight planning and filing workflows:
- You can now enter multiple comma separated email addresses into the Email field at the bottom of the filing form to send flight plan information and updates from ATC, like expected route notifications, to fellow pilots or crew members.
- ForeFlight now sends SMS text messages in addition to emails and push notifications to provide updates regarding your flight plan, such as ATC rejections and flight delay notices, slot allocation messages, and overdue VFR flight plan reminders.
- Use the new INFO button on Flights to view detailed information about your departure, destination, and alternate airports.
- Tap-hold on the FILED and EXPECTED route strings in the flight plan filing form to copy them to your device’s clipboard and share them with others.
