One of the most beautifully presented mobile apps ever
There are hundreds of well-presented apps available for the iPad and iPhone, but few can be classed as beautiful. This app is one of the latter, and this is perhaps surprising given the relatively serious nature of the tasks that it performs. It is designed primarily to let you track flights, and whether you are checking to see when a loved one returns home or you need to track multiple flights for work, this app is the ideal tool to get it done. It can, believe it or not, track every single flight in the world at any given time, and can also be used to track flights that are occurring on later dates. You can input flights to be tracked as and when they occur and you can also receive alerts that will let you know if flights have been delayed or if there is a problem. These features alone make the app highly useful, and in the right hands it could become a solution that you use every single day. However, this is just the start of the story.
You can check flights and share details with anyone via email, social networks or SMS. The flights can be synchronised with your calendar, you can label each flight, store specific information and also add your own personal notes. Ten-day weather forecasts are included, and the level of detail at every point is phenomenal.
This detail covers everything from departure and arrivals flight boards, to the ability to find any airport in the world, and even terminal maps for major airports. As if all of this wasn’t enough, the presentation lifts it beyond almost any other solution we have seen. The key parts of the navigation have been built specifically for the task at hand, and the way the route, airport and airline information is presented is breathtaking at first glance. It is highly unusual to find an app that marries practicality, beautiful presentation and consideration all the way through, but Flight+ really does manage to pull off this trick.
A beautifully presented and highly practical solution, without equal.
