WindowSeat − Flight Tracker / Timer
By AppOven, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Thanks to WindowSeat’s patent-pending technology, air travelers can now track flights in flight without needing GPS or a persistent network connection.
To use WindowSeat, all you need to do is select your flight and enter your actual wheel-up time. WindowSeat then does the rest. As you fly, update your travel time for an even more accurate tracking and anticipated arrival time.
WindowSeat is the perfect companion in any air traveler’s itinerary, whether you’re a frequent flyer, heading on vacation, or traveling with children. En route, you can see pictures and read abstracts as you fly over landmarks, geographic locations and other points-of-interest in WindowSeat’s database.
No matter where you’re sitting, WindowSeat provides a great view.
WindowSeat’s key features include:
✈ WindowSeat is a universal app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
✈ High resolution map accessible offline, during the flight.
✈ Track any commercial flight throughout the contiguous U.S.
✈ WindowSeat calculates your position and anticipated arrival time based on the assigned route and airtime of your flight.
✈ Update your position based on your flight’s true performance, and WindowSeat recalculates your flight time.
✈ View images and read descriptions about the points-of-interest you pass on your flight.
✈ When an observed point-of-interest isn’t in line with WindowSeat’s flight tracker, simply drag your flight to match, and the application will recalculate your time.
✈ Committed to making future versions even better! Send suggestions and feedback that will help improve WindowSeat.

** If on the rare chance you experience a crash upon launching, please delete the app and reinstall on a reliable network connection **
This app is amazing. I travel quite frequently and found it to have very good accuracy considering you have no GPS or Internet going. While not a 100% due to pilot variances in course and speed, it is uncannily close most of the time. I've had flights where I made no corrections and have literally touched down within a minute of the estimate. Additionally, the app has never crashed and it has always had my flight listed. Bottom line: if you travel and like to know where you are, don't hesitate to get this app!
Unlike others below, works great on ios6. Simple to use. Tracking works great and is amazingly accurate. Highly recommend this app.
Wish it saved favorite airports, rather than one recent. By definition if I fly somewhere I'm not going to be at the last airport I departed from. Also wish it would use location to determine current airport rather than needing to type it in. Lastly wish the maps were higher res, but realize it would make them huge.
Know where you are
Always nice to know where you are when flying, especially if there isn't inflight wifi.
Good tracking and points of interest.
Nice to know when you'll overshoot the airport as it is part of the flight path.
Well designed interface. Looking forward to future enhancements!
