    I have not tried it out but for iOS there's Side Pilot. It seems to be the only app for the Solo and I intend to try it. It is nowhere near as developed as Solex but the developer seems to be active with regular updates which is improving things on a weekly basis.

    If you want to be a power user today it would seem you need to buy an Android phone.

    I expect it has to do with @Kelly Schrock wanting to have a life rather than developing for two disparate platforms. Powerful custom or niche apps are non-trivial to maintain on two operating systems.

    Though maybe if someone throws hardware and copious amounts of cash/beer at him he might acquiesce....
    Or maybe not.....

    Give SidePilot a go, I am updating it regularly, and other than Smart shots (it currently has its own versions of Follow, Orbit and Cable Cam which I will be working on making better over the coming weeks), it offers much more functionality than the stock app.

    Check out the manual over on the website SidePilot - iOS Ground Station for a full list of the features
