Very Informative and Well Presented
I really don't understand the low rating. This app gives detailed information on what is and isn't allowed through airport security.
Wait times are USER POSTED!!! So stop complaining that they're not accurate. The TSA is already spending 110% of their budget to keep things running smoothly so that wait times aren't being measured by hours.
Overall it's a professionally crafted app, optimized for iOS 6 and soon 7, and has never crashed while I have been using it.
Great Compliment to airline Apps
Starting as a crowd sourced resource about security line wait times, this App has grown in capability and usability. Now it has near-real time information on airport delays and On-Time Performance of each airport. It is more than just a list of prohibited carry-on items. If its been a while since you tried it, give it another try.
Zoom the Airport Status map. In addition to Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Nome, there is status for Kotzebue, Alaska.
Functional but needs users
Wait times are crowd sourced, which is a decent idea...but there is not a great deal of participation, so current data is sparse. Could benefit from some type of data aggregation to give average wait times by day and time to compliment the user updates.
App seems to function well, no crashes or major bugs. Some responsiveness lags, but ok overall.
