    Is there a list of apps which are already available for the phantom 3 and upcoming apps as the DJI pilot app is really barebones as to what it can do

    Do you want to narrow this down to iOS or Android?

    I thought there was one developer who had an app for the P3 buy I can't find it, if there is. There are a few for Android.

    However, while these Android apps support some ground station features, these won't work until DJI's next firmware release.

    To be honest, most of these Android apps don't look very good right now as they were designed from the Phantom 2 SDK. I'd say the exception is Vision Pilot which looks better than the others.

    There was a company that made an iOS app for the Vision Plus that looked great. I thought they were working on one for the P3 but I can't find it if they were.

    There's an app developer here in Austin who built the Autopilot for Phantom app for P2V+
    He is updating his app for P3 but it's not out yet.
    Pix4D should have their app updated to work with the P3 soon too.

    I do notice that the AutoPilot app does not have WayPoint autonomous flying as features. If you're looking for something like this then I think Pix4D or similar drone mapping apps will fulfill your need.

    Waypoint mode will be coming in a future release. Right now we are focusing on adding support for the P3 and Inspire and don't want to delay v2.0 any further. If you are interested in joining the beta, email support@autoflightlogic.com

    I live in Austin and went to the Meetup that y'all hosted a few months ago. I'd be happy to try out the beta app. I fly with an iPhone 6 or iPad Air 2
