American Airlines WP7 App to be Updated Soon – “Fastest Info on the Planet”July 12, 2011 No Comments
Kicking off Microsoft Corp.â€™s annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), CEO Steve Ballmer and corporate vice president, Tami Reller took the stage to address many topics under the Microsoft umbrella. One thingÂ they mentioned was the fact that the American Airlines App will get an update soon that will make it the fastest way to get flight information in the planet. The press release states:
“American Airlines will soon update its application for Windows Phone, which will provide â€œthe fastest delivery of flight information data on the planet,â€ according to an American Airlines spokesperson. The update will allow real-time flight status information, including gate changes and baggage claim areas, from Americanâ€™s reservation system to be pushed to a cloud-based Windows Azure system, which can then push the flight status notifications directly to the applicationâ€™s Windows Phone Live Tiles. American Airlines customers who download the application and pin it to Start will have instant access to their most current travel information on the top-level user interface of their phone, eliminating the need for text message, email or phone-call updates. The application was developed in conjunction with Microsoft partner migration mobi of Austin, Texas.”
Placing real time flight information right on your live tile will be amazing, especially when those last minute changes are made.
