    I was a heavy FlightTrackPro user but was forced to change over. This app improves every day and in some was better than FTP. The best out there and very close to 5 stars.
  • Best Option Available, and room for improvement

    Developer is very responsive. This is a big plus. I wanted something that would store my flight schedule, sync between devices, and automatically update my calendar. This app does all. The GUI is a little bit clunky and without the eye candy I have become accustomed to, but I suppose it is a matter of ones opinion. The notifications seem to be accurate and it has loaded 99 percent of my flights correctly. Also I usually get duplicated calendar events. Not quite sure why this happens.
  • Helped me to get over the loss

    I used to have Flight Tracker Pro, which I loved. But it stopped working!!! Turns out, it was bought by Expedia, which killed it. Found a review by David Pogue who recommended Flight Update as a replacement. Tried it out today, and found it to be helpful, reliable, and accurate. Tracked a flight my wife was to take to return home. It told me about a delay before the airline even told my wife! We're off to a really good start with this app. Now, just don't sell out, like TTP did and we'll be fine. Nice app!

    This App tells you about the delays before the airlIne or airport tells you, so you can get inline to change your boarding pass before everyone else.
  • Simple & VERY User Friendly!

    The new format and information is so much more helpful. Since I travel a lot, it is nice to finally have this information at my fingertips.

    Valuable tool for a frequent traveler. Works great for international travel as well as US domestic. Great customer support. I had an issue with programming and the developer identified the problem and helped me resolve the problem the same day I reported it. Thanks!
  • Flight Update Pro features not working

    Flight Update Pro features not working Have notifications on. Have push notifications on. Had 3 gate changes, no notification. Departure and Arrival, no notification. Entering confirmation number and notes in trip detail does not carry over to trip info. Have to enter it twice. Why one star. 1) Notifications is a feature prominently advertised and missing in action. 2) Having to enter data twice. 3) Purchased on the last day of the trip. App will not let you enter a flight in the past. Half the trip is missing. Saw another app where the luggage pickup carousel is shown, this app does not provide it. Would be nice but the dings above, especially #1 is a deal killer. Might as well just use the flight boards that the airport provides. Are refunds given.
  • Not "validating" flights

    Like everyone else, I used to use Flight Tracker. I switched to this app & it's hit or miss. When it works, it's great but more & more frequently I'm getting a message that it's "unable to validate flights" which means there's no information on the flight status available (yes, I have wifi up & working but also have phone service available- it won't work with either). This means that more & more frequently I have to download the app for each individual airlines to keep track of flights & it annoys me to no end. I can't say I'd recommend this to anyone until that glitch gets fixed.

    I like to track my friends’ flights and also my own. My old favorite app for this was closed down. This one leaves a little to be desired in terms of visual design, but the functionality is great! And the TripIt integration makes it even easier to enter flights
