Features & Use
-Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4.2.2
After launching the app on your device, a small information window appears for a few seconds. Once it's gone, you are presented with the app's main display, which is divided into four tabs.
The first tab presents information about a specific flight by imputing the airline, flight number and departure time, which then brings you to the detailed view. All important information is then made available like the departure and arrival airports, the airline, the plane ( including technical data), other flight codes and the actual status of the flight (whether it's on schedule, its arrival etc.) It's also possible to see the airport's time zone, weather, location on Google Maps and terminal map (only if you've additionally downloaded the internal menu. This is only available for bigger airports).
What's more, the app also displays the statistics, which reflects the flight's performance, as well as an overview of how often the plane arrived on time, was late or got cancelled. Last but not least, you'll also be able to share special flights and its status via Twitter, Facebook, Mail or SMS. Unfortunately, information cannot be shared via the Android internal share function.
Here you can view detailed information about over 16000 airports, as well as see their schedule of departures. You'll be able to filter your search by imputing time, status, airline and other additional information, as well as details regarding specific flights.
Like the airport tab, you are able to search for routes, but this time by imputing departure location, destination and desired travel date. By means of this tab, you'll be presented with a detailed graph with all connections between the start and end locations.
Obviously, here you'll be able to view and save your favourite flights and airports, allowing you to quickly return to them at any point in time. You won't have to re-search for them in the normal search engines, saving you a lot of time.
The settings allow you to customize your Flight Hero by changing your language, various configurations ranging between light and dark themes and activate the notifications.
You'll also be able to switch between the metric or American system and to synchronize your travel plans to TripIT, an online platform. You'll also be able to display your favourite flights in your calender.
All in all, its easy to say that "Airline Flight Status ✈ Pro'' is an app with endless possibilities offering information about more than 16000 airports and 1500 airlines, with many other practical functions. Whether you need information about airlines, flights, airplanes or airports, this app has it all and can come in handy when times get tough.
Those who find themselves often travelling should definitely take a look at this app. The app of the week's price definitely makes it worth your time.
Screen & Controls
Though the design of ''Airline Flight Status ✈ Pro'' isn't bad and is set up for practical use, it could be a bit more innovative and interesting looking. A standard Android design would've been a good solution to this problem.
Speed & Stability
In regards to the stability of ''Airline Flight Status ✈ Pro'', there's not much to complain about. The only thing that I noticed was the slight delay when loading the departure list. Otherwise, everything ran quick smoothly.
Normally "Airline Flight Status ✈ Pro'' costs 4.51 Euros, but the App of the Week (4.3.2013-10.03.2013) is now being offered to you for 2.29 Euros, only here at your AndroidPIT App Center. If there was ever an app, for which you would get an extra bang for your buck, this would be the one, thanks to its many functions and bounty of useful information.
