FlightView Real Time Flight Tracker

flightview FlightView is a cool app that costs too much for regular users. The $4.99 app gives you the ability to track upcoming and in-air flights. You can even view a map of where the plane is currently. You also get notifications when the flight status changes and it is all integrated into the BlackBerry calendar.

The convenience of the app may be worth it for regular flyers but for most people you can just use one of the multitude of free websites or even Google to check flight stats. Many sites like FlightStats offers free email or SMS notifications on flights you are tracking. Other agencies like Orbitz will send you messages or even call you for free.

Still if you absolutely need to convenience you can check out FlightView at this link or in the App World at this link.

  1. Should be free

  2. Bet this is a “Top 10 App” on a terrorists BlackBerry Blog.

  3. Use the mobile website (http://mobile.flightview.com) for free access! 😉

  4. It is true that free flight tracking mobile web sites fit the bill in some cases – especially when you have a single flight to track just one time. FlightView has a great mobile site with flight tracking and airport delay status, as Tom kindly mentioned: http://mobile.flightview.com. But the FlightView app can win over a free flight tracking web site, and be worth the $4.99 when:

    1. You want to reference your flight more than once, maybe to check for minor delays or gate changes that aren’t normally alerted on or you want to reference someone else’s flight more than once because you are picking him/her up at the airport and you want to check his/her flight’s progress. Then it’s nice to be able to save these flights to a list for quick reference in the future. At a free mobile site you’d have to keep re-typing in the flight number each time.

    Not to mention, the alerts! Instead of having to manually punch in flights each time you want to check a flight’s status, you get notified of any changes in plans, immediately.

    2. You want to track multiple flights – either you have connecting flights, are picking multiple parties up from the airport, going to a conference where colleagues are flying in from other places, or going to family reunion. Again, at a free mobile site you’d have to type in the different flight numbers each time you want to track the flights.

    3. You want to type in a few notes concerning your trip for quick reference on your mobile phone – like the phone number for the taxi/shuttle/limo company that’s picking you up or your car rental reservation number.

    4. You live by your calendar and want to plan around your flight’s arrival/departure – especially when you’re flying across time zones so you need to plan around hard-to-calculate departure/arrival times.
