OK app, could be improved
I was using this app since it's been released and find it useful, especially sync with TripIt. There a are problems like delayed updates of flight information, the inability to enter into InstaFlight flights that have departed yesterday (which is important for overnight flights), and that when the flight is complete the app 'forgets' all details rather keeps them for further reference. So when I received the invitation to rate it I was prepared to give it four stars. But then when I've opened the App Store somebody already wrote a draft for me praising the app. This is annoying to say the least, and is cheating the App Store to misrepresent what actual customers think. So now I am giving it only three stars.
Enough is enough.
I've used this app for 5+ years having upgraded to the paid pro version because I liked it so much. However, I increasingly find that the information displayed is inaccurate especially when compared to data available to me to me from Flight Aware - which is free - or from airline websites. For example, right now looking at Delta flight 221, it shows that flight en route and due to arrive in Atlanta at 9:52 PM. In fact, that flight has been significantly delayed and is not arriving until almost midnight. It was easy to find this current status from the other sources I mentioned above. Even the option of showing the "incoming to your gate" info I once greatly valued rarely works anymore. So time to free up some space in my phone.
I have been using this app for years and loved it. A few months ago I had a sync issue with Tripit,I sent an email to customer service and the attention I got to resolve my issue is unprecedented. Not only the app is outstanding but when you get the kind of support I got from Scott (app author), you know that your investment is well worth it.
