FlyTime App: Get your Flight Info and Everything in Between (Fast Review)July 24, 2011 No Comments
FlyTime is a completely new and free app on the Windows Phone marketplace that lets you track your flights. Yes, we have seen plenty of apps like this before but the difference is what it does in between. You can send information to friends and family, Add twitter and facebook to the mix for a social feel. But that is not all, it is your one stop app for everything revolving around your flight like places to eat, taxi’s, bars and even hotels. To top it all off it also has an integrated RSS reader so you can read from the sites and blogs you love while you wait for your flight.
What shocked me even further was the fact that I can search around my home for places to eat, drink, transit, etc. without missing a beat.
The app is also beautiful done, it makes good use of Metro UI and also to my surprise it is super fast! Why was I surprised? For the simple fact that this app really packs a punch and has tons of features so adding speedy to the list really takes the app above many others. To top it all off – it is completely free in the marketplace.
Track any number of flights simultaneously ! And don’t just track, share flight changes with friends and family, get complete information on departure/arrival updates, terminals and gates and lots more in a clean and attractive interface !
