Any fight tracking apps recommended? I only know flighttracker.
I use flightaware.com. It's free unless you want historical data.
You can also just enter the flight number in Google and it will pop up the current status data.
Here are CNET's reviews of iPhone Apps:
A very different tool, and it serves a different purpose, is planefinder.net
You can, for example, use it to identify the planes flying overhead. I'll sometimes spot an interesting one coming up low over my house, so I can go outside with my camera to catch it. That's how I caught this JAL plane.
I've had FlightTrack Pro ($10) for a few years and love it. The basic version is only $5, but the extra $5 for the TripIt integration is well worth it even for a mostly leisure traveler like me. Just forward your flight emails to firstname.lastname@example.org and it automatically logs your flights into FlightTrack along with confirmation #. As the review about talks about, it's got a beautiful interface with a lot of information.
I can't speak for any of the other apps, though, as I haven't tried them.
The basic version of FlightTrack is free now (at least the Android version is). I installed it about a month ago. Great tool for when I know guests are coming. Few things I wouldn't mind if they improved it, but overall, very useful.
Haven't tried other apps, but might if there are some recommendations.
I used to use Worldmate on my old Windows phone several years ago and I liked it. I haven't tried the Android version yet - any one have any thoughts about it stacks up against flighttrack or others?
I could forward confirmation e-mails and it would ingest them, give updates, and give alternate options in case of irrops. It also had weather reports, and I think it can track hotel/car rental reservations too.
Has anyone here compared this and tripit head to head?
+1 for me, although I got in at a much cheaper price... I think I might've gotten it for free from Starbucks one day.
