FlightTrack iPhone App Released
iPhone Users Can Now Download Real-Time Flight Tracking App
BOSTON (November 17, 2008) - FlightView is pleased to announce the release of FlightTrack, a real-time flight tracking application for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch. Developed by Ben Kazez, FlightTrack is powered by FlightView's accurate flight information and flight tracker maps with current radar weather. "Being able to watch the airplane travel across the screen in real-time is the biggest differentiator," said Kazez. "No other iPhone or iPod touch competitor can currently offer that capability".
Now iPhone and iPod touch users can download FlightTrack on the iPhone App Store and track flights for themselves, friends, family and colleagues in real time. Users can search for flights in any number of ways - by departure and arrival city name or airport name/code, or by airline and flight number. Another unique feature is the ability to check last known flight information while offline - useful for checking on the schedule of a future or connecting flight, or picking someone up at the airport if you don't have good cell or Internet coverage in your area. Other exciting features include:
- View current weather radar & its potential impact on flights
- See current aircraft speed & altitude
- Track & store multiple flights
- Save last known flight information for later viewing while offline, even while sitting on an airplane
- Search schedules of upcoming flights
According to Kazez, usability and appealing interface design were key factors in the development effort, which "yielded an interface that fits right in with the beautiful apps that come with iPhone and iPod touch."
