BOSTON, MA (February 3, 2011) - FlightView Free flight tracking application preferred by mobile users for accurately and easily managing flight information for themselves, friends, and family, reached major download milestones in both the Android Market and iTunes App Store this month - combining to top the 350,000 download mark in just 6 months.

Released in July 2010, FlightView's free flight tracking app for Android devices, which was developed in conjunction with 3Beam Technologies, has been downloaded by over 290,000 users since entering the Android market. FlightView's 4-star app powers travelers to track flights, avoid delays and make better day-of-travel decisions, and has quickly become the most popular, user-friendly and reliable flight tracking app on the Android market. Recent user feedback includes:

  • "Up to date and very easy to use - I was notified as soon as my mom touched down." by Dez (January 7, 2011)
  • "Amazing! Found my flight in about 2 seconds. Plus it has an awesome map and gives you weather at both airports. Love it!" by draineo (January 4, 2011)
  • "It worked perfectly for me and gave me instant updates on gate changes, which is a life saver" by Roseline (January 2, 2011)

In less than three months, iPhone users have downloaded the 4.5-star FlightView Free version over 60,000 times. Travelers rely on the app's high level of functionality to manage travel itineraries, assist with airport pickups and see exactly where a plane is en-route, and are expressing their appreciation on iTunes:

  • "The only free app with in-flight status on maps. Great app. Lots of info!" by GioVannaBella (Dec. 5, 2010)
  • "Blows me away how good it is. Best thing is that it can save my flights and I don't have to re-enter the flight info each time I start it up. Better than even the full blown websites that do this." by Racer021 (Jan 8, 2011)
  • "On the way to pick up my brother at the airport I downloaded this app. In minutes I knew the gate # and arrival time. Perfect." by Mryan654 (Dec 17, 2010)

FlightView Free will be available for iPhone users on Verizon in February.
