What's New in Version 1.4.1
Improvements made to the layout and content presentation across the app, including updates to the 'Member Airline' and 'Airport Info' section
Ok but more needed
App works ok but would be nice to be able to sort results by arrival departure or elapsed like oneworld's app does
Also and more importantly we really need the choice to be able to download the entire flight database to use in offline mode while in flight. In planning for delays or the next leg of a trip, this often happens while on an aircraft and it's not enough to rely only on the recent searches and just make those available. If my flight is late arriving and I'm going to miss a connection, I want to be able to know my alternatives before I land so I can get right to work on them.
This function existed in the now-defunct PalmOS app so it should not be too hard to re-create.
I'd say its pretty good. Checking flight status is pretty straight forward, getting airport info is also pretty good. It gives interesting facts about the city and such. WHAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: less loading time when app is launched, add a map view for the airport with GPS, add flight check in for most airlines. These are the things we want. Just a little more work for you guys. Interface is good.
Good app... If you know what it is!
To those who gave bad reviews because they couldn't book flights, etc... Star Alliance isn't an airline! You should know what you're downloading before doing it and don't expect it to do things it's not supposed to do. Good for what it is designed to do.
