Review Summary:

PROS: Great UI design. Good performance, very responsive. Provides real-time data. CONS: Somewhat overpriced.

If you’re a regular traveler I am sure you’ve got several life-saving apps installed on your iPhone. I remember that each time I travelled to a new city, I was very happy to have an iPhone at my service in order to check maps, public transportation, and many other useful things. You can also find hundreds of highly useful apps in the iOS App Store, designed to help you find your way in a new environment and to get the most of your day.

In today’s article we’ll be taking a look at an application that’s designed to keep you informed about a flight tracking. This app is simply named Flight, and you can download it for $2. Note that this price is currently lowered by 50%, so that the regular price is $4.

Flight app 2

I can assure you that you’ll be amazed by how nicely designed this app is, especially when you open it for the first time. The main idea behind Flight is to provide you with real-time flight tracking, where you’ll be able to see a set of useful information. Even though you’ll get to see some preloaded content after you download this app, in order to add your own data you’ll need to swipe downwards. This will open up a form where you’ll need to choose if you’d like to track a flight according to its code or route. The former one needs information like an airline name, flight number, and date, while the latter one needs From and To input, as well as an airline and date as well. I need to say that I was surprised by how quick and responsive this application is, as well as by its smooth animations.

After you add a flight you want to track, you’ll be able to see the main view which shows you the flight code and terminal/gate, as well as if the flight is scheduled, en-route, or had landed. If you need more detailed information you can simply swipe upwards, which will reveal a new view. This is where you’ll be able to see more detailed weather information, and well as some data about an airplane. What I liked is a smooth animation in the background which indicates the current weather condition. And this is pretty much everything that Flight is designed to provide you with.

I don’t have any doubts that the Flight app will be helpful for the regular travelers. It provides some very useful information and it’s being updated in real time. There’s really nothing more to ask for. What I found a bit problematic is its price of $4. You can find some amazing apps priced at $1 to $2, which are even more useful than this one. I guess you’ll be paying premium price (in terms of iOS App Store pricing) for interesting animations and well-polished interface. This is something that will be up to you do decide, but I am sure that there are many people who are willing to spend a few dollars more on a content like this.
