Best of the lot

I use Flightaware often to track family members in the aluminum tubes, and friends piloting the smaller flying machines. It works well, though at times the app tries to refer me to a scheduled flight that doesn't depart until tomorrow, overlooking today's flight by that number that is enroute. Once you figure out the user interface, Flightaware can be quite useful — meeting someone at the airport, for example. The tracking is accurate down to the minute, as long as ATC centers and tracons have radar coverage. Using Flightaware has saved me time and has reduced my mental stress.

Awesome, functional and fun...

Whether it's for down and dirty business travel, leisure or just the fun of plane spotting - the app doesn't disappoint. I always use it to SMS my aircraft times that are invaluable if I'm on the flight or meeting it. Using it as supplemental info often provides better, more timely information than from the airlines themselves. Sitting outside an airport you can track when your favorite airframes come home or leave. Just plain coool.

First stop for flght info

I use Flight Aware regularly. It typically has more up to date informaiton than the airline's own apps on my flights, it's also very useful for tracking friends flights and my own personal flights. It's easy to use and provides all the information I need when I'm using it as a passenger and most of what I am looking for, post flight, when I'm a pilot.
