From my experience with major updates and given the fact that Laminar is working an a rather big update for XP10 mobile too...don't expect the betas to start within the next two months - at least. But this year is a viable expectation.

I still don't get the X-plane mobile thing. Do people really use that?

Yes, when they can't text when driving, they fly.

I read some figures somewhere and there is pretty good money in it.  After all, Laminar is a business.

I don't even have a mobile phone - does a touch-screen laptop count as a mobile device?  Whatever - can't see doing it that way after using a big monitor, yoke, throttle and pedals, but I guess if that's all you have ...

 

If they are supporting development of the "real" version, I'm all for it.  :rolleyes:

You can't compare it really to a desktop simulator.

 

But it's a game, and games get played. And after all, Laminar also developed this:

It's not really a bad game either (and free until you start adding aircraft) if you consider that it requires a lot of not so real screen touching to work controls, etc.  But those who play games on tablets/phones have pretty good dexterity.  It may develop interest in the real simulator and that has been known to develop interest in real flying.  This, and it probably brings in pretty good cash to be put back into development on whatever Laminar needs to spend on at the time.   Makes sense really.  I don't see that they have neglected the X-Plane community.  How many updates did MS put into FSX?

Yes, and it was XP9 on my iPhone that made me get back into flight simulation after leaving in 2007, and made me purchase XP9 desktop and later XP10. So it does work.

I'm building a 32gb RAM computer for the DSF textures this Christmas so I hope 10.40 is out by them. I also hope the 980ti is out, I really don't want to spend $1,000 on the Titan X!!!

Yes, but think of what you can do with 12GB of VRAM.... :P
