The Google Play Store currently has a free AR Flight Simulator. No payment is required and no advertisements shown. Might be a good opportunity for you to try Augmented Reality if you haven't :)

EDIT: Apologies for posting the wrong link. The issue has now been fixed.

 

DISCLAIMER: Although I am not making any profit from this app, it is worth mentioning that I am the creator of the game.

This is self promotion. You left out the part where you say it's your game like in all the other cag forums you're posting this in.

Yes, because I assume this forum is meant to be short. And besides, why does it matter? I am not making a cent out of it.

 

EDIT: I posted the wrong link. So sorry about it!

Because you sound disingenuous when you neglect that it's YOUR game

So, how much of our personal data does your app steal? You must be getting something out of it. There's no such thing as a truly free app. They are chock full of ads, or other spyware.

No data :D I am not an experienced mobile developer, so I don't feel it deserves to generate any profit at the moment it is purely my submission for an academic course. The only permission it requires is an access to the camera, so the device can scan the environment, and can place the aircraft in it. I will see if I can explicitly disable network functionality in the next update, so users can feel more confident using the app and not be afraid of spyware. Thanks for your feedback!

Yeah, I made it clear now. I believe that this knowledge should be accessible free of charge to people who are curious about these technologies. I am also making ad-free videos regarding theoretical computer science in YouTube, because I want this knowledge to be accessible. I believe that my revenue will come later when I master some of the fields that curious me.

 

Sorry for omitting that part, I thought the post should be as short as possible, when writing here.

I would believe that if some of your past posts weren't longer and more detailed. Hell one I saw you point out the different payment options you took

I never took payment for this app, it is only one day old... I understood that in this particular section of the forum, you need to be write short posts as possible.
