The FlightOptions iPhone application is now available in the Apple App Store. 1 out of 4 flights get delayed or cancelled - the FlightOptions application allows a traveler to quickly view flight scheduling alternatives when trouble arises. The application is also useful as a planning tool before or during a trip to view the various flight options between any two airports in the world.
The FlightOptions application allows an iPhone traveler to view the best flight options between 2 airports with a unique, easy to use graphical display. The traveler can tap a flight to get details such as flight number, departure/arrival times, airport codes, flight duration, and number of stops. Both direct and connecting flights can be viewed, including the ability to see what connecting flights to the final airport destination are viable based on the selected originating flight.
FlightOptions for the iPhone is available as a $0.99 download from Apple's App Store on both iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
