Why would a VFR flight planning app need full IFR planning capability?
Because people like me wish to operate their aircraft inside Class A airspace and operate IFR on a regular basis. The only alternative to SD are American products which charge in excess of £1000 a year for their data base and displays. They are also not ideal for European use.
SD has come a long way from being a simple tablet display to keep you safe on Saturday butty runs. It's now probably one of the world leading flight planning and progress apps. I believe it was said at the last SD presentation I went to that they intend to offer an IFR package but legalities have held them back. It's one thing to sell a product with the caveat that you should look out the window to keep safe, another to have pilots put blind trust in your product.
