Is it possible in the IFD simulator app to fly a commanded heading? Or will it only fly direct to the next waypoint?

It will fly a heading if there is not a gps flight plan loaded in the FMS.

Hmmm.  Not having a flight plan defeats what I am trying to do.  I want to see how the IFD reacts/sequences when I intercept an approach at various points.
Not to throw mud, but I recall that the GNS530 PC simulator allowed this, so I was wondering if a similar function exists in the IFD simulator app.

Sorry, the simulator doesn't have a heading mode.

One option you may want to try is to create a user waypoint where you want to intercept and then do a direct-to that waypoint.  Then, enter your approach after the direct-to.  Then, go into OBS mode (you should still be on the direct-to leg) by pressing the upper right knob.  Then, dial an OBS course to simulate your intercept course to the approach.  Once you get close enough, activate the desired leg of the approach.
