    Airports have been slower to embrace mobile technology than airlines and online travel agencies.
    Few have developed their own apps although their facilities are ripe for the type of information that can be delivered efficiently via smartphones: navigating complex terminal layouts, avoiding choke points and long queues, and what's available at shops and restaurants.
    Several independent app developers are stepping up to fill the vacuum in hopes of wooing travelers with useful, real-time information and perhaps getting them to spend more money.
