What's New in Version 1.6
- white screen bug on iPhone fixed.
First usage, mixed results
The app has some great reviews, and I was particularly taken with the screen shots on the app page. I love the quick access: it simply asks for the airline and flight number, and off it goes. No painful sign-up and login requests. Now the downside: I entered my airline and flight for my first app use and it immediately found my flight (UA 5903) - but didn't show my flight's portion. That is, it showed the afternoon flight (ORD to Greenboro I think) but didn't show my flight (Little Rock to ORD), even though the flight was still four hours from my departure. Very disappointing. I tried again a couple of times and then got the "sorry, only 3 attempts per day with the free version...sign up for the pay version. That's too few opportunities to learn a new app and I'm sorry they move to the paid version option so quickly. It could be a great app...but not sure I'll ever know.
This app saved me!
This app saved me from worrying myself crazy! My boyfriend was flying privately on our jet and he was not responding to my text..long after he should have landed (He is notorious for responding to texts immediately and always lets me know when he's landed safely from a flight. With Flight Tracker, I was able to see that he had landed safely, he was just having cell service issues. The great part was that I was able to track a private jet flight from a tiny private airport in Mississipi!
Not very friendly
I am looking for a new flight tracking app since FlightTrack pulled a seriously d!ck move by updating to "version 5" and forcing people to pay again for their app with minimum/superfluous updates. I am in the travel business and used to use FlightTrack exclusively until now.
Unfortunately this one does not fit the bill. One should be able to search by flight number or destination or origin or any combination of factors. This is limited to only flight number. That automatically prevents it from being useful to anyone except the casual tourist or complete rookie who knows their flight info by heart because they are terrified of missing their once in a life time flight to Branson.
