What’s New

Version 7.60

*** Version 7.60*** (late July 2021)
* Improved support for diverted flights. Interestingly, there are flights diverted every day that our customers are tracking and we wanted to improve support for this. This also included changes to our servers too.

Back in April of 2020 we added additional measures to our flight status servers to detect when a flight has been cancelled to give you more advanced notice. Because of the pandemic, flight cancellations have been more frequent and it was clear this addition was necessary.

If you ever have any comments, complaints or compliments, please go into the Prefs screen within the app and tap the "Email the Author" field. You will always get a response in a timely fashion.

Nice app

Very nice app and great customer services. Developed actually responds to your queries.
Happy that the airline list has grown I the recent update. Thx guys.
Update 2019*** it’s a little out of control now will all these subscriptions. Ow you can’t even seem to add 5 connections to 1 flight if you are travelling around Europe. Come on guys this is not the USA Europe is totally different and many of the countries are nearby. You should reconsider this.
Are you are aware there are many other apps out there offering a similar service free? I’ve been with you for quite a few years so please I urge you to reconsider some of these subscriptions.

I purchased the pro version of this sometime ago. Now it requires a subscription for over five departures a month. I had set up a particularly important travel from a student of ours from Ecuador who has multiple flights. When I said no to the subscription it deleted two of her three flights including the last one arriving in UK. Because it was linked to my calendar it is now delete them out of the calendar and now I have to go and find the email for many months ago dream put the manual into my calendar.

I am really upset and once this particular trip is over I will not only cancel the trial subscription but cancel and delete the app completely and make sure I do things manually in future. After all I can find flight details from hundreds of other different websites and put them in the calendar manually which I will do in future ... if there isn’t another app that does a similar thing to this one.

Very useful - the occasional blip.

Generally I find flight update extremely useful, and I use it a heck of a lot.
It quite frequently seems to ‘know’ things like gate changes and delays before the airline staff and airport information sources do!

There are some odd glitches in its calculation of ‘departs in...’ and layover times. These are occasionally *wrong*, I think connected to time zone issues but I’ve never quite figured out the pattern.

But that aside, it’s very good.
