    The Qantas app announced at MIX 11 overnight sounds pretty sweet – as well as letting you remotely check in and receive a digital boarding pass, it uses the phone’s location software to estimate travel times.

    The app will take advantage of the upcoming background processing functions of the phone, which means it’s probably months and months away from launch. But it could be exceptionally useful for frequent travellers – the screenshot shows the app offering alerts as to when you should leave in order to make your flight.

    I saw that, might encourage me to get a capable phone in due course!
