Developer Snapshot: "Traveling, dropping off or picking up passengers? Get live Arrivals and Departures information for all commercial flights at any given airport in the World."

One of the most important duties in life for a business associate is to arrive on time for all meetings, fully prepared with the necessary appointment materials. These meetings may be on home ground, in another state, or even in another country. As we all know, airports are thoroughly scrutinizing passengers and baggage these days, so we need plenty of time to arrive early for inspection checkpoints. The flip side is that planes delayed due to inspection points, inclement weather or faulty parts can delay flight departures. You are then stuck in limbo, knowing that business associates or family members are awaiting you on the other end of your flight. Your blood pressure starts rising! This is when you need to open up your World Flights app to take the stress off yourself and check the exact timing of your flight. So what exactly are the benefits of World Flights? Well, this app provides worldwide departure and arrival information to commercial flights passengers, as well as information to those dropping off or picking up passengers. Here are some of the features of the very helpful iPhone travel app, World Flights:

- Provides accurate and up-to-date information about commercial flights to and from any airport, or based on any given route
- Identifies the nearest airport to a specific location
- Allows users to save their most frequented airports and routes as favorites for quick access
- Displays flight tracking information on a map

On opening World Flights, you may select from among several options. Choose Pick Nearest Airport from the map displayed, conduct an Airport Search or Route Search. You can then also load your airport into Favorites. On picking my closest airport, I was then given many sub-option such as Domestic Departures, International Departures, Domestic Arrivals, International Arrivals, Search by Airline or Route and Airline Information. All options are clearly worded and require only a tap to navigate to your chosen field.

When I tapped Domestic Departures, for example, a list of all the flights from my selected airport to all national destinations appeared with its flight number, destination city and flight status such as Landed, Delayed, or Scheduled. This is an amazing amount of helpful data and applies to all the other travel options. You can see the flights scheduled for the Next Day in addition to those from the Previous Day. Tap the airplane icon to go back to previous menus.

If you conduct an Airport Search, you may query by Country, State, City, Airport or Airport Code, while if you Search By Route, you may query by Origin and Destination Name. The information provided is worth its weight in gold, in my opinion and will inform the traveler, or the one meeting the traveler, of exact arrival times, including any dreaded delays.

Whether you travel twice a year or twenty times a year, this travel app will give you the confidence and peace of mind you need to track your flights, and be prepared at all times. Use this app to take the stress out of travel, and make alternate plans in the event of delays that may affect your business or even personal appointments out of town. World Flights is accurate, works quickly, smoothly and well to get you the flight information you need immediately, right in the palm of your hand.
