FlyMate is a fresh and unique iOS app which lets users track their flights on a real time basis and keep in touch with other users at the airport, or discussing that particular flight via over 4000 chat rooms, each of which represent different airports. You can easily keep track of when your flights arrive or depart from any corner of the world, as well as about real-time updates from those at the airport, including sometimes, the Airport authorities as well. So, if you’re a frequent traveler, FlyMate is a must-have app which will help you stay more informed about your flights.
FlyMate is an app developed specially for those who are regular flyers and travel all over the world. If keeping track of numerous flights is becoming a headache, then FlyMate is the ideal solution. It can really be annoying when you somehow make it through heavy snow and jamming traffic to the airport, only to realize that your flight has been rescheduled or delayed for a few more hours. This app will save you all that trouble by keeping you updated about the latest schedules of your flights, as well as letting you see what other users, who may probably be already at the airport, are saying about your flight.
This app has a pretty extensive coverage of airports, with over 4000 airports pre-integrated into its database. It allows airlines to post their announcements and updates for all users to view and stay updated with the latest updates on flight schedules with this app.
The user interface is quite simple and easy to navigate. The options are neatly segregated into 4 tabs, which allow you to search flights by entering the departing or arriving city or airport, or choose a date and a particular airline and get all the latest updates on schedules. The details have been fine tuned to include gate number, instant delay details, cancellation details and even terminal number.
One standout feature of FlyMate is the Air-post section. It has a large number of chat boxes, each of which represent a particular airport. You can post or answer queries here on just about anything with regards to that airport. Even airport authorities use it at times to post important updates. Social networking support is also built into the app, letting you create your own mini-blog and upload videos, on which other users can comment real time. There is another My-post section, where you can keep a tab on replies to posts and queries that you have added. Plus you can even share the updates with your friends or family members so that they can stay updated too.
FlyMate is surprisingly easy to use, and first-time users will be able to be up and going in virtually no time. All you need to do is enter your search term in the search box. FlyMate has been developed by RS Smart Media Ltd, and is available for download from the App Store for just £0.69. Which is pretty good for the value that this app can add in terms of making you air-travel so much easier? FlyMate is compatible with all iPhones, iPod Touch and iPads running iOS 4.0 or later.
