If you’re a frequent flyer, this app is definitely worth the price. You will appreciate the real-time updates that keep you from wasting time waiting for delayed/canceled flights or missing flights due to gate changes.
- Live flight status and gate information
- Live flight tracker maps (including speed, altitude, and location)
- Homescreen widget with latest flight status
- Offline mode
- Data synchronization with TripIt Travel Organizer (only with TripIt Pro, paid upgrade)
A couple great aspects of this app are the ability to share flight information directly from within the app via email, text message, and twitter. This is a great way to keep loved ones updated on your status. Also, the option to select a flight as a “repeating flight” is great if you’re often making the same trip over and over again (or if you work for the airline!).
- Notifications from the FAA, airline, or airport when there’s a change in gate, departure, or arrival, plus any time changes that are greater than 10 minutes apart
- Widget keeps you informed from the homescreen
- Data automatically refreshed every 5 minutes
Areas for improvement:
- Flight information not always accurate, but not really the app’s fault
Conclusion: A must have app for any business traveler or frequent flyer. Don’t be caught off-guard again!
