Travel Apps :: Live Flight Tracker

flight trackerI've known about flight tracking apps for awhile, but never bothered to download one---why I don't know---because they can be extremely helpful. These apps are valuable planning and tracking tools, and definitely something the travel app-obsessed should have in their toolkits! Recently flight status apps came back on my radar when my mom asked about options as she filled her iTouch with apps the night before she set off for a multi-city, multi-segment trip to China. There are a few flight status apps on the market. The highest priced, FlightTrack ($9.99 Pro/$4.99 Regular) is the most robust and a frequent international traveller's dream come true. Casual jauntsetters will like the free FlightAware app.
