The Holidays are rapidly approaching which, for many people, involves traveling. Whether you're the one traveling or picking someone up from the airport, Flightboard will help bring some order to the chaos that comes with being involved with traveling. Its purpose is to transform your iPhone or iPad into the Arrivals and Departures board for any airport in the world. The design of the app was inspired by the boards at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and so have a beautiful, old-school feel.
Flightboard includes over 16,000 airports and 1,400 airline worldwide and is updated every 5 minutes to ensure that the information is accurate and true to real-time. The information displayed on an airport's board includes the airline, flight number, destination, gate, departure and arrival times, and the current flight status. Tapping on an individual flight will reveal more detailed information including the departure and arrival terminals and the type of aircraft used for that flight.
Flightboard also lets you share flight information with your friends via Facebook, and Twitter. You can also choose to "Open In..." the Flightboard for other city associated with the flight or Mobiata's other app called FlightTrack that lets you track flights on a map in real time.
I don't know about you, but I'm constantly checking the arrival and departure boards when I fly, so having all the same information on my iPhone would be awesome. Unfortunately, I will not be traveling this Holiday season, so I'll miss out on giving Flighboard and spin while "out in the field". But if you're traveling and decide to pick this one up, please let us know what you think!
