In the new world people will remain completely mobile, straying from their communities and nation states in an almost continuous pattern. Airports are our central hub, plugging us in to this global network through a mapped out skyroad. This means that our most important transportation method is in this collective form, and the accuracy and timeliness of this is often completely out of our control. Plane delays, security issues, and technical problems are always plaguing our travel plans and changing our schedules independent of us. To keep on top of this we have to constantly check up on our individual flights, often times right up until minutes before take off. The iPhone intends to be a centralizing device that includes most of our daily informational and communication needs. In this model airplane applications are crucial in that they give us this information wherever we find ourselves. Flight, by NibiruTech Limited, promises to retrieve and report information on your flight in a timely manor. There are hundreds of travel applications available for your iPhone at the iTunes' App Store, which means that Flight needs something special to stand out. Though it does not dominate this list, it still remains a viable option for those that need this kind of information constantly.
Right off the bat you are going to find that this free iPhone application has a little bit of an awkward interface dilemma. When you first open up Flight on your iPhone you get a screen that is very similar to the iPhone Stocks feature. Here you will see all the flights you have looked up specifically. You then go to the gear symbol in the lower right hand corner and select it to find an editor for this list. Then you hit the "+" button in the upper left hand corner and add another flight. You can search for this flight by Route or Flight, which is surprisingly accurate most of the time. It then finds the flights that meet the qualifications and you can select it to add it to the list.
Back at the main list you can select the flight you want to retrieve information about that flight. This flight information ends up with just the Departure, Arrival, Map, and general information. It is essentially just these features that make up Flight. This is fine in that you will usually only need this kind of information, and if you need more you may want to go to a computer and look up flight specific information at your carrier's website. For those who want a more complete picture then Flight may not be what you are looking for.
For a free iPhone application the information in Flight is fairly on point. There is an informational disclaimer inside Flight explaining that the information inside simply comes from the Internet and that Flight itself is not responsible for the accuracy of said information. It would be better if Flight itself had an info vetting process that guaranteed things, but that may be too much to ask from this free iPhone application. For the average person this is going to be enough, but it is in no way a leader among iPhone travel applications or free iPhone applications in general.
Three out of five stars.
