What's New in Version 6.02
* Minor bug fix
Have had this app for around 5 years, and it used to be pretty nice, but lately patches make it worse.
An example is when looking at flight history it defaults to your oldest flight instead of recent flights and there is no way to change it. Pretty sure most folks would want to look at most recent flights the majority of the time and not the oldest.
Worst and becoming unacceptable is that some flights that I add crash when trying to look at their details. Same flights crash if you try to use instant status. Program completely crashes. I am about done with it and going to look for another app.
Just What I Need
I’ve had this app for years and tried several others. Although others may have more bells and whistles, I’m just an occasional traveller, and Flight Update has just what I need to save information for different flights. I’ve had a few hiccups with this app over the years, but it seems to be pretty stable now and offers a lot of good features. I’m sticking with this one!
This is a great application. I use it to track flights for all of the people who were coming in and out of town. It has been accurate to within minutes actual flight data. Weather delays also show. I love the live in-flight updates maps to track flights in progress.
