FlightTrack - App Review

 

This is a sister App for FlightBoard which we have previously reviewed. With this App you can track the progress of a flight. Not only do you have actual departure and arrival times but the actual current position. It enables you to annotate your flight details and also (but only with certain carriers), see the seating plan for the aircraft, so that you can select the most 'comfortable' seat... regardless of the information the airline might provide.


Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
It's a cinch to add a flight, even with only partial information; you can easily search for the actual exact flight you are looking for. The direct route path is then displayed on a map of the world which can be zoomed however you want. If you have a lot of flights (and some are in the past), it is useful to delete some, as the display could become a bit like an intricate knitting pattern. Any flight entered will display the time it actually left the gate, as well as the actual arrival time.

Cost
This is a low cost App.

Indispensability
If you already have FlightBoard then you need to consider how the modest cost compares to the additional features. It also very much depends on how much scheduled air travel you are involved with.

Dependability
The App works perfectly but obviously the data is subject to the information provided by airports.


Security
No issues.

ACIDS Test Rating:

A neat App for travellers.
