Jeppesen didn't improve with Boeing's purchase. It became more expensive and customer service got worse.

Foreflight, designed and developed with the general aviation pilot in mind, hopefully won't begin to exclude general aviation.

Foreflight has done well in it's development and responsiveness; time will tell how it will do under Boeing.

Hopefully that's not the case, it sounds like from the interviews that Boeing wanted Jeppesen to be a software company, when they never really were. So buying ForeFlight is a solution to that specific problem. Time will tell.
