Tracking Your Flight – FlightTrack Pro iPad App Review

FlighTrack Pro is an essential iphone app for the mobile warrior. It’s probably the best $10 you will ever spend it you frequently fly. The iphone app allows you to keep your entire friends, family, and co-workers up to time with your flight position. You can automatically coordinate your flight schedule by forwarding your airline verification emails to plan (at) tripit. com. Within a short while, your travel itinerary will automatically appear in your iPad’s FlightTrack Pro software. Additionally, the software functions as an organizer where you can write down all notes and any information needed for your vacation or business trip. The software program automatically alerts you with real-time flight information even if the iphone app is not open so you will not likely miss any schedule changes. If your flight is delayed, or you are merely looking to find another flight, FlightTrack will inform you alternative routes and can help you plan your trip. While this might be overkill, Trip track will allow you to view the air time, aircraft, and spend & altitude (in US only). http://www.flightradar.co.uk/

My favorite feature was the incoming flight system that predicts if your flight will be on time. On my trip from Los Angeles to Ny last week, We were able to use FlightTrack to gauge my departing time and it was just 8 minutes off.
