FlightView Free app review


FlightView Free

Price: Free

FlightView Free by FlightView Inc. allows you to track flights using real-time information.

With this app you'll be able to use your mobile device to track in-air flights and get status alerts using push notification. Not only that but you can use the app to learn about cancellations, delays, and even your gate assignment while at the airport. The flight map will show you the aircraft's progress.

The app allows you to create notes and flight itineraries and then save the information. There is also an overlay radar weather map for North American airports.

If the flight has one endpoint in North America, the app is able to track it.

Other features include being able to view your baggage claim information, check out where the plane you are about to board is coming from (its previous flight), and find alternative flights using the flight schedules. You can view information on flights up to 180 days in advance.

It should be noted that while you're in the air you'll still be able to use some of the features in the app, but you'll need to set your device to Airplane mode.

FlightView Free was updated on Feb. 12, 2013 and currently has 143 customer ratings with an average rating of five out of five stars.

Because the airport can be a confusing place this app can really help you figure out things like what gate you should be at, if there are any delays, and any other information you should know. This is a very helpful tool that is also very easy to read and use.

For: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad with iOS 4.3 or later
