If you’ve ever searched the App Store for travel related apps, it’s likely you’ve come across FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro, two of the consistently top selling iOS apps in the travel category. The pro version ($9.99) is jam packed with features like push notification for flight updates, weather forecast for both arrival and departure airports, and Terminal maps, but the casual (and budget minded) traveller may not require all the premium extras. For those looking for a no frills and free version that provides some basic flight look up functionality, Mobiata has released just that – FlightTrack Free.
I don’t know about you, but I travel quite a lot, and tracking my flights is a pain. I need to enter takeoff time, flight number and all of that other stuff into the calendar manually just to be sure I never miss my plane. And to top it all off, I have to somehow remember to check the weather and if, god forbid, there is a delay, then I usually end up stuck in the airport for hours. Well, Mobiata has come up with an answer for me and all of you frequent fliers out there!
