    I see that yesterday the iOS V+ Booster app was updated (I updated my iDevices with it this morning). Does anyone know exactly (details) what the update does?

    based on FPVLR's comments in that thread, appears primary improvement is coding changes to improve the ability to ignore 2.4 interference from various wifi sources, which if true, should extend the range of quality FPV for the Phantom +

    I can't find any such app on the iOS app store. What's the FPVLR app official name?

    Searching the app store for "V+ Booster" yields zero results.

    OK. So the official name is "FPV Booster for Vision+"
    That I can find on the app store.
    Thanks


    Can you give us an idea of what specific changes the app makes to the Extender and Phantom WiFi configuration?
    Besides just boosting the power, which several apps also do.

    What does "- Better FPV performance in urban area" mean?
    Are you changing the channel? or enabling some other features?

    The new V2 equips with an interference control algorithm. It boosts extra 50% FPV range with the same Wifi power comparing to V1, especially in urban area.

    Looks like PVFlyer (above) is the one involved in developing the app.

    I don't think anyone is trying to "fool" anyone. I think FPVLR and FPVFlyer look similar and people are simply making an honest mistake when they confuse the two.
