FlightHero iPhone App Review.
You just woke up and you find a text on the phone saying that you have to be in another city or country by the end of the day. What do you do, and where do you look for flights on such short notice? You could, of course, turn on your computer, go through all types of official airports and airline sites, call your friends, ask them about the nearest airport, search for flight conditions, and ultimately panic. Or, better yet, you can pick up your iPhone or iPad, and straight from the comfort of your bed, check all these stuff out using a single app. This is FlightHero and you can find it in the AppStore.
How it works
FlightHero is a must-have app, especially if you travel a lot. It's the easiest way to find the flight you are looking for at the nearest airport. Search for flights, check out routes and flight conditions, find out what airports are near your location, and make the best flight choice with FlightHero. Taking into consideration all the information that FlightHero provides, I think that one thing is certain: the Amazing Race will never be the same, once the contestants find out about this app.
FlightHero's main purpose is to make it easy for you to find the flight you need. You can search for flights by Flight Number or by Route. That is if you already have a destination in mind or you already bought your ticket and just want to confirm all the details. If, however, you're interested in checking out all the flights at the nearest airport, just insert the name of the country or city you're in, and a list of airports will pop out on the screen. Choose the airport you want, and find out all there is to know about today's flights. And if you don't quite know which one of these airports is the nearest, there's no need to worry. For every airport, there's an Info Option that you can access to see its exact location on the map.
Get all the information you need with one app
And there's still more information that FlightHero can help you with. Besides the exact location of the airport, you can check out the current temperature and visibility status, plus the airport plan, so that you get an idea of where you have to go once you get there. As for the flights, you'll get the exact departure and arrival times, the airline and flight number, and find out the current status of the flight. Also, you should be able to see the terminal and gate you have to go to, but I haven't quite figured out how to do this, while testing the app. And, in case you're looking to share all this information, you can do so via Facebook, Twitter, E-mail, and even through a text message.
FlightHero can actually be your hero, especially when you're in a hurry to find the best flight. The only thing I was surprised not to find were the flight prices. I, for one, tend to also take into consideration the flight price when making a choice, so I think it would be useful to include this as well. Also, actually being able to buy your tickets using FlightHero, or having FlightHero redirect you in some way to a ticket counter, would definitely make this app even better and truly worthy of the name Hero. However, in the meantime, FlightHero is still a pretty good app when it comes to finding your flight and getting the information you need to know about it.
