The most recent AWR for aviation shows that there is a single Samsung tablet that you are able to fly with, however I have never heard of anyone using it. I personally don't like Apple products and was wondering if anyone here has used it and could tell me how well it works i.e. that apps available for it, ease of use. Is it a hindrance to go with Samsung over Apple?

iPads are very intuitive in my opinion. I have little complaints about using the IPad during flight in both Army rotary and fixed wing. I have not heard about an android product being allowed in the cockpit. Only AWR I’m aware of is strictly for GOVT issued iPads. If you do hear something, please share as I am now curious
I am not an aviator but I will give you the position of someone in Information Technology. I understand why some people shy away from the Apple interface over Microsoft. The simple facts of the matter are these. Apple had the windows interface first and the Apple variant is much better engineered than the Bill Gates hacked copy of it. The Bill Gates version is more susceptible to viruses, system breakdown, and needs infinite upgrades and with each upgrade comes a interface or UI change to enhance profitability. If it was my life at stake and I was buying the product I would buy Apple. Apple OS is also more stable than the Microsoft OS. Microsoft software also consumes significantly more in disk space and memory than does Apple.......increasing your costs of hardware.
