4.0 out of 5 stars A very cool flight app February 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
This app is pretty freaking cool, and I'm glad it was the FAOTD.

Firstly it worked very well in accordance to the GPS, so unlike some other applications, it seems that this will not be an issue while you're near or inside an airport as long as you have an internet connection. It was lightening fast to my local Airport, and I am probably 20-25 minutes away.

The interface was at first a little confusing to me, but the learning curve is pretty quick. Basically, the flight numbers are in one column, origin in the next column, followed by the gate and arrival/departure time. You can easily scroll through the rows from top to bottom. Once you find the flight you are looking for, you click on the row and all the information you need expands. You see the airport it departed from, airport it is landing to, the times for both, as well as the capability to email or message that information to someone if you so choose. You can do a whole bunch of other stuff with this information if your phone type permutes, as well as track the flight in real-time if you download another app (Flighttrack).

I checked this app alongside my local airport's flight website, and so far everything has been accurate. When you are in the app, the airport's time, the interval of time the list of flight are being shown to you as well as the last time the app updated said list is indicated on the bottom of the screen in small lettering. It is not intrusive, but moves at a constant basis. On the top left status bar is where the name of the airport is located, and to the right of that are two arrows that you can pick to decide if you would like to see departing or arriving flights. You can only see one or the other, not both at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, this is cool! February 7, 2013
By KBieb

I like tools that simply do what they are supposed to do and do it well. This is one of those tools. It will show you a list of all arriving and departing flights at any airport. You can then get additional information on the flight by clicking on it. From there you can send the information by email or text. You can also link to another app that tells even more information about the flight. I don't fly much but if I did, I can see using this on every trip. It will also be useful when picking someone up at the airport.
All in all this is a well made app that works great, looks great and is very useful! Well done devs!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Travel App - Some Kindle Limitations February 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
This truly is an amazing App. All major airports are represented. Begin by selecting data for either arrivals or departures. Data can be refined to display either by alphabetical airline listing, alphabetical destination listing or by event time. Data can also be refined to begin by listing cancellations/delays. Key word searches can be performed (for example city or airline). Terminal and gate information is also available. With an update every five minutes, users of this App are always up-to-date. It would be nice if reasons for delays and cancellations were listed.

I found that with the Kindle, there are direct links to either your e-mail or to your texting Apps. Using these links, you can easily transmit your flight information to others. You can even link your flight information to Skype!

For Kindle users, there are some limitations. First, unless you have a Kindle 4G LTE, you are at the mercy of being near a WiFi hot spot. Also, in FlightBoard there is a pointless link to a sister App called FlightTrack (which allows users to track a flight at any time as well as have access to host of other features). FlightTrack is incompatible with the Kindle (both free and paid versions). You are out of luck if you want to integrate both Apps. Really both Apps should be combined (even if the resulting App has a high price tag). I knocked off a star for the integration issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Indispensable Travel Tool February 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
Don't leave home without it! If you have ever been at an airport gate, wondering where your plane is....wonder no more!

I use it for inbound flights and to get a sense of what is happening at all airports that may affect my travel plans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a useful FAOTD!!! February 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I personally never fly, so this app is of no real direct use to me. I do, however, have a few frequent flyers in the family. I downloaded this app for that reason. Only glanced at it so far, but loved what I saw!

Its nice to see a wider variety of FAOTD's lately too. Utilities like this one and the organizer a few days ago are an excellent "filler" between all the games!

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful to whet your wanderlust June 11, 2012
By Wallaby
Verified Purchase
Very useful for the frequent traveller. Instead of hunting down the displays in the terminal, you can have updated gate info before you step off your flight.

It also has a very cool live wallpaper that plots recent flights out of any airport you wish. Choose your local airport, or one like JFK or LHR to make you want to get out and travel! :-)
