    Thank you for the link. I haven't used their mobile app yet, but signed up anyway. Maybe this will be my new go-to app. I've been using flightaware for a while now on my computer.

    I applied. I used to alpha and beta test for a job. It would be nice to do it for something that actually interests me.

    Their current mobile app is pretty cool, has very similar features to the paid app flight track (ability to search flight number and see maps), but also has some cool features like being able to look up stuff by tail number and view routing information. You can also share with facebook and twitter, which is kinda of fun. Occasionally it is buggy especially with the social networking stuff, and flights at least on United Express have to be looked up by the operator, ie Skywest. Obviously that is what they are using with ATC, but it would be nice to have expanded support so you can search by any flight number, partner or operator. Anyway, here are some screen shots of the current app to give you a better idea-

    a live link you post on twitter or facebook will show them this ;) you can also customize the text when you share to say something like "I'm enjoying a mai tai on my way to maui, b****es", but that is mean. :p

    Thanks for the link.

    The weird thing was it asked how much time you would be able to spend on the application between May 1 and June 15. But then in the Thank you for applying part it said we'll notify you by June 1st. :confused:

    Dont see the mobile app on the Android market. But I used it alot over the last month on my RTW trip on my Droid 2 Globals web browser. It worked great.
