Flight Update

COST: $4.99
DESCRIPTION: Lifestyle, Native, Travel
..RELEASED: 6/2/09, VERSION:3.2 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..

The details and coverage of Flight Update have impressed me tremendously. Travel is such a difficult thing these days, and the more informed and prepared you are, the more peaceful and hassle-free your trip will be. First of all, you should know that Flight Update carries information on over 1,400 airlines worldwide (including all continents), thus making it a must-have and powerful flight application for your device. Simply enter any flight number so you can track that flight. When you enter the airline, travel day and flight number, Flight Update will go to work for you by verifying the flight and filling in the details you need. In this app, there is both a manual and an automatic update button. Tapping this button will update all flights and bring you current with the required details. I used the FIND feature that allowed me to search up a flight based on the departure airport (you can do this too for arrival). This is a must-have feature when friends and family don't supply you with all the information you need prior to arrival in your home town! Additionally, other helpful features are: ongoing flight status, gate and terminal notes, baggage claim, flight cancellations and delays, and flight tracking for US based flights. I particularly like the e-mail feature that will allow you to quickly send off a mail with your flight status if you are trying to alert your friends regarding your pick-up time. I appreciate this app because it lets you input the information you need on a simple, unadorned screen so that you can read without being cluttered with irrelevant information. The options of picking trips by route or airline is wonderful. Flight Update is a must for your travel plans.

"Flight Update uses Flight Stats, the world leader in flight status information. It is the only app that will: add flights months into the future with the airline and flight number, and the app will retrieve all flight details, provide meal information for the flight, and allow viewing of seating charts for the aircraft. Flight Update combines status information with an additional service that allows us to validate and pre-fill each flight, even if it is several months up to a year away."

--Note:  This app requires OS 2.2 or later. Rated 4+.

--Tech Jargon: smurf - A network security breach in which a network connected to the Internet is bombarded with replies to PING requests. A smurf attacker sends PING requests to an Internet broadcast address. The return address of the request itself is spoofed as the address of the victim, so all the hosts receiving the PING request reply to the victim's address rather than the real sender's address.
