... the open-source glide computer

XCSoar is a tactical glide computer originally developed for the Pocket PC platform. In 2005, the originally commercial software was given to the open-source community for further development and has constantly been improved since. It is now a multi-platform application that currently runs on Windows, Windows Mobile, Unix and even Android devices.

100,000 pilots using XCSoar
( 9. Oct 2016 by max)

According to Google Play statistics, there are now more than 100,000 pilots flying with XCSoar on Android. (We do not know how many people downloaded XCSoar anonymously from this website.)

When I announced the 50,000 pilots mark two years ago, I thought our growth would be over eventually, and I could not imagine we would ever reach 100,000 pilots. Here we are, even more proud of our success!
