    Manage Travel Itineraries – with the updated My Trips feature, users can save grouped flights together, record reservation information and personal notes, and sort saved flights by trip name or date.
  • Plan for Flight Delays -“ with the upgraded airport delay map, including the new “Low Traffic” indicator, users can get first looks at probable delays in departures or arrivals -“ ahead of airline announcements.
  • Conserve Battery Life -“ by optimizing FlightView’s servers, the new Android app allows users to track numerous flights at the same time, share travel information through social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, and quickly rebook when flights are delayed or cancelled -“ all without draining the smartphone’s battery life.

“Since its launch, our Android app has consistently been one of the top-rated apps -“ based on both its functionality and affordability,” said Mike Benjamin, CEO of FlightView. “The latest version of FlightView for Android gives users more power to manage their day-of-travel decisions.”

Along with the core features that come standard on every FlightView mobile application, an update of FlightView’s iPhone app in July provides users with even more social media sharing capabilities, the ability to easily call the airport and reschedule flights and a faster, more user-friendly startup.

FlightView’s top-ranked application is also available for iPhone and BlackBerry users for $1.99 and $4.99 respectively. FlightView for the BlackBerry, a choice travel tool for business executives, integrates directly with users’ BlackBerry calendar, placing travel information into a traveler’s daily agenda. Labeled by the media as “one of the most useful apps a business traveler could download,” FlightView’s BlackBerry app sends customized alerts whenever there is a change in flight information, even when the app is closed.
