Best Flight Tracker App
I have the pro version and that is definitely with the extra if you use TripIt. I had a problem where my app data file was corrupted somehow and caused the app to crash when selecting certain flights. Scott (app author) was great in tracking down the problem and providing me a fix that stop the app from crashing. So nice to have very responsive support for the app. I own several other flight tracking applications but this is my goto app when I travel.
Super Useful App
I fly weekly and plan trips as well in spontaneous mode! The app shows me all the information I need.
Sometimes it shows no flights when I know there are some. Sometimes when I swipe to delete an app, the app closes/crashes. Overall, my most used travel app!!
Wtih 14yrs in the airline industry I've tried most of the flight tracking apps out there, and this one consistently proves itself to be the best. I especially like how the flights are separated into "trips" and as you open a trip it's only the flights within that trip that get updated. Saves bandwidth, saves time. Calendar mirroring is another excellent feature - enter the flights once in this app, choose which calendar to sync with, and they all appear in it.
The developer is super responsive. Any time I've had a question he's always been ready and willing to help, although the app is so well written I've not had to ask much!
I had an interesting issue with synchronization between my iPhone and iPad. Because I was running different OS's on each the iCloud backups weren't talking to each other. This was an Apple thing - iOS8 upgraded iCloud Drive and my iPhone was still on iOS7. However the app also syncs with TripIt (you don't need the pro version to do this) so now my two devices stay in sync perfectly.
This app comes highly recommended.
