Flight tracking mobile phone application

"FlightView's development team worked with us to create a best-in-class Flight Tracking application just for Palm Pre users," said Pam Deziel, vice president, Developer Marketing, Palm. "The result delivers what Palm Pre smartphone users want: an easy-to-use, highly functional, reliable Flight Tracking application that maximizes their mobile experience." The FlightView application gives users up-to-the-minute mobile information on where a flight is, - tracked by flight number or by departure and arrival cities. Travelers can online check flight status before departing for the airport, loved ones can monitor the flight while it's in-air and arriving passengers taxiing to the gate can check connection status and gates.


Flight tracking & Flight status alerts

In addition to flight tracking, the functionality unique to the Palm Pre mobile phone includes flight status alerts giving travelers immediate notification of changes to the flight; status changes, delays or cancellations. The FlightView application uses Palm Pre notifications to update the user of status changes or delays - whether it is opened or closed - giving users the information they need to act on.
