Hey, new pilot here, Newcastle NSW Australia.

Bought a tello as my first drone, it’s been great fun so far, I’m pretty impressed by it. Looking to make some mods then progress to building my own drone.

I know I’ll be buying a wifi extender and some extra props but that tellofpv app is only available on Android, I guess my first major question for the pros would be, what’s the best iOS alternative to the stock tello app?

Long post already, my bad, thanks in advance for your help

Sadly there is no alternative to the Tello app in iOS.

If there’s enough support, I might build an iOS tello app. The desktop one I’m building is almost complete (not accounting for machine vision and autonomy features). Also depends on what kind of features are wanted in the iOS version.

Why not partner with the developers of the android versions and port that to iOS. I know little to nothing about programming, but if the groundwork is done, it shouldn't be that hard to do the port. Right?

Android apps are programmed in Java/Kotlin where as iOS in ObjectiveC/Swift/Swift2. Porting would be effectively a rewrite from the ground up. The logic is straightforward anyway.

Are you on official tello owner fb group? More people there. Im sure prople got heaps of ideas and support for you in there. There are people asking for better ios app there including me. Ryze seems to be fairly incompetent at making the stock app function properly.
