Cool idea, poor results
by Cb005 on 2020/02/21 21:36
App never updates my flights, thought it just didn’t find all previous flights, but even all new flights don’t make it onto my profile... I’ve taken about 30 flights so far in 2020 and it still says ZERO... I’ve linked all my email accounts but it doesn’t link to all frequent flyer accounts, so the data isn’t accurate.
Love the app it’s very easy and useful
by ahay24127 on 2020/02/20 21:11
Great app
Amazing!!!
by Quadruplee4 on 2020/02/20 14:07
Hey I already rated this app on my other device that has now crashed. But this is an amazing app! It has flight alerts, it has videos, it even has Loyalty Programs! This is an amazing app if you fly. Download it now! Do not wait until after you’re next flight!!!👍🏼
Beats Apple wallet
by Not the developers friend on 2020/02/19 17:17
I’m all for any app that makes my life simpler. This one does. I use it for all my travel. Only down side is that it doesn’t recognize some of the smaller foreign airlines in my inbox so updates aren’t automatic. But that’s a minor detail.
Started out well but showing problems over time
by VariableChart on 2020/02/19 14:32
One major problem with flight detail extraction and one minor problem with usability 1. It’s missed flights and worse it jumbled up the flights to and from (Update: this happens but with much lesser frequency than before) 2. It doesn’t show passenger list so it’s hard to figure out whose flight it is some times (Update: This is still a problem)
I like it

Good app that is in real time. Only draw back is they’ve ask me 5 times in less than 12 hours to rate.
Nice helpful tool!
by 13rian89 on 2020/02/16 19:30
Helps me track my loved ones flights itineraries; so I know when they’re flights are on time, early or delayed.
Great App!

Works well and keeps you organized
Moving backwards in interface
by mlnd2 on 2020/02/15 12:23
I’ve always found this app very helpful in organizing my “flight life” but the recent updates in look and feel are like ten steps backwards, with lots of extra taps to see information that was previously readily available. For example, it’s disappointing to have to now click in to see the details of itineraries that were previously conveniently laid out on screen. Similarly it is extra effort to look up details of upcoming itineraries and other individuals’ itineraries. I appreciate the effort to improve the app, but “fixing” the things that aren’t broke isn’t an improvement.
Love it
by Mom2rsm on 2020/02/15 12:10
Love the this app ! I always know gates, departure times, updates, even luggage carousel numbers before anyone else I travel with. Score one for mom!

Best app ever

Gives an organized flight plan with all sorts of extra info. Perfect!
Love this app but can be better
by Hassaan22 on 2020/02/13 22:03
I wish we could control what we would like to be notified of. I keep getting dumb notifications for arrival gate changes and stuff like that, which I do not care about at all. Also, I wish it did a better job in syncing and not having me sort my flights every time I refresh! It’s so annoying.
Great app ruined
by content_BK on 2020/02/13 05:47
The recent update changed the way the data is presented and was a change for the worse. Seriously disappointed and looking for alternatives

Bueno
Used to Be Good
by Frustrated Faster on 2020/02/12 13:12
At this point, all of the important features have stopped working. Somehow they managed to take a very good app and make it worthless. Email parsing doesn’t find flights anymore, expense reports don’t export all transactions, past flights have somehow been marked as future flights and various other issues have cropped up. Sorry that I made a “lifetime” purchase. There should be some accountability for companies who sell you something on a “lifetime” basis and then let the quality of that product go to zero.
Great Travel App
by EURR on 2020/02/11 17:36
I’ve been using the app for about a year and it’s a great tool to help keep your travels organized and display your year to date & overall lifetime statistics. The world map showing all your travels and the video it generates is a super cool feature I really enjoy from the app. I’d recommend for more American based airlines to be added to the loyalty program section as American, United, & Delta are currently missing but it’s not a deal breaker for me. I encourage and recommend this app to other worldly travelers & it’s a great app to use alongside other airline/travel apps. Edwin R.R
Useful

Have been keeping up to date with the emails of flight bookings. Pretty useful in managing my upcoming and past flights. Wish I could have the premium at a cheaper price 🤪. Thank you developers.

App in the Air is in it to win it
by Collaborator on 2020/02/09 03:13
I fly over 120,000 miles a year and so get heavy use of App in the Air. Clearly, App in the Air is in it to win it. It’s on the ball, steadily improving its functions, look, and style.
Cool
by ahammer24 on 2020/02/08 19:34
I travel frequent enough that this app is useful, especially on my Apple Watch. I love that everything is easily accessible in one spot! I do wish it could pull the boarding pass from the wallet app. So far, seems “simple enough” but still kind of an information overload! But I am pleased...tonight will be my initial test! Thanks!

From Amazing to Horrible
by starbrightsurfer on 2020/01/31 01:16
I have had this app from the day they started. In fact I was lucky enough to get a very cheap lifetime membership(I grandfathered in). I travel nonstop, on planes 8-10 times a month. This by far is the best app on the market. Without it, I would be lost. However, this last update was nothing more than grabbing for something to submit. It's HORRIBLE!!! You can tell the developer ran out of ideas for an update and did whatever. There's a saying ”if it ain't broke, don't fix it”. Please put all the settings like they were before. If not, I will have to he forced to search for another app.Oh and please fix all the mistakes the new update produced.
Doesn’t work
by jmdidday on 2020/01/30 00:11
I wanted this to work as it has a nice interface and Apple Watch support but...it doesn’t get my enterprise exchange emails and thus no corporate flight info, and I can’t add United Mileage Plus to pull flight in that way. And it breaks up connections so that they appear as separate “trips” requiring way too much maintenance on my side. I can see myself spending hours editing flight info which isn’t how I want to spend my time.
Caution of iCloud Sync Feature
by Ramseju on 2020/01/29 20:13
Recently resolved a big issue with app by learning that by default App in the Air is installed with iCloud sync active by default. If you also sync your iCalendar with ur iCloud account, App in the Air will pull in all of the flights (going back years) from your calendar and will put them into an “Unsorted” status. Then, you’ll have to manually disposition all of those flights bc the app doesn’t know if the trip was your trip or that of another person. In my case, the app had 668 unsorted flights. Uff!!! To resolve, I had to delete the app, reinstall, turn off iCloud sync for the app and then re-link it with Trip-It. I can see why the app may need to link with iCloud if you manually add flights...this way ur data is safe. But if your flight data comes from other sources (emails, TripIt, etc), having iCloud sync enabled can cause a lot of data and performance issues.
Very nice!

Imports
by skb35 on 2020/01/26 14:36
Updating review: Back to emailing easily and using this app daily. They changed the email address to send itineraries to and I did not get any notice. But they reached out to me and gave me new address so all good. This is a fun app to keep track of your travel. This used to be my favorite app and I switched from tripIt because this one was fun. BUT about 2 months ago, it can no longer import by forwarding the confirmation emails from American or delta. It used to be able to do this, but no longer. So options now are fill out this spreadsheet first that they provide or give them access to my entire inbox. No thank you. Going back to trip it.
Latest Release falls short
by Sunfyre84 on 2020/01/25 20:47
The latest release makes trips look visually appealing but functionality falls flat. No longer have at quick glance the gate to gate route for a layover. Trips are no longer being read, and some trips are showing completely incorrect city pairs. While I used to look at the app every time on layover and before flights, I find myself no longer using it.
Great app!

Love this app. Links to TripIt and gives timely and accurate updates on flight status. Also keeps me informed about progress of flights I’m following, especially of friends and family flying somewhere. Definitely better than the others out there and I’ve tried them all. Deleted all of them from my phone except this one.
So worth it!!!

Add sharing in app

One of the best tracking apps now, and I feel like I‘ve tried them all. The only thing it lacks is a „where is my plane now“ feature. But otherwise very helpful alerts and very accurate tracking
Wants WAY too much information

Hit and miss
by Harmakis7 on 2020/01/07 15:45
I use to love this app, had great info and kept everything together. The Apple Watch app was great too. However I can NOT get it to load any more of my trip data. I have tried countless times and it won’t find my email from SWA in my inbox and import anymore. It use to have a email you could use to fwd the email but can’t find that with new updates. Sad that I can’t get this to work anymore.
1st time use

Great App! Get it!
by EthanA75 on 2020/01/05 01:58
I love this app. It is amazing and does everything. From checking in for you to a breakdown of timing to notifying family members of your progress. I have recommended this app countless times and will do so in the future. I have the pro subscription and I absolutely recommended it. Here are some features in particular I like: -Loyalty Card Management -Flight time breakdown -Offline flight progress -Gate change notifications -Family notifications -World rankings with your time in the air. To cut it short get the app! It is amazing and it is a life savor. It is even better for first time flyers, yet still amazing for frequent flyers as well.

Easy to use and reliable

This app is easy to use, has many useful functions and is reliable.
Has Potential
by AuburnB on 2019/12/31 14:48
This app has potential. But no matter what I try it will never have all of my flights stick. Every time I log back in my flights from my email have to be sorted again. I’ll add a new flight manually and it won’t track. My review video and my stats never line up. Will be a great app if they can get some of the basics to not be so buggy.
Good and getting better!
by Mfitz911 on 2019/12/31 01:14
Much potential and looking forward to many additional features and updates upcoming.
We’ll always have Ushuaia
by Dowshpdx on 2019/12/29 16:17
Standing in line for hours during an airline strike in Ushuaia. Screen right next to agent says plane leaves in 45 minutes. App says planes leaves in 11 hours. I say, ok I’m going with your screen right there. Response: “Oh don’t do that. That App is more reliable and accurate. We are on strike”. True story. And yes App was spot on. Confirmed it 11 hours later.
Issue in the lasted update
by AmirHamzaSikandar on 2019/12/29 15:38
There seems to be an issue with the latest app update whereby the years are not shown against your travels. Or perhaps I am not able to locate that new setting? Used to display just fine until before this latest update. Help needed!
It works.
by Irked Bear on 2019/12/29 05:58
The onboarding bit is clunky, but it’s doing interesting helpful things now. It’s similar to other apps I use to optimize travel, but better UI in the looks department.
Great App for a frequent traveler!!!
by Jeffersonreed71 on 2019/12/27 22:53
I travel almost every week for work. This app is great!!! It not only tracks your flight, but let’s you know how long it takes to get to the airport. Very handy in cities you’re not normally in!!!

Privacy Nightmare, Cancelling Sub Cancels Trial
by Phil in Colorado on 2019/12/24 17:27
I’d have enjoyed running App In The Air through its paces for a couple weeks during the free trial period, but some functionality disappeared once I instructed the subscription management NOT to start charging me. Expense tracking stopped working. I had a general sense that this app demands WAY too much private information. It wants me Facebook, my Google, even my email and banking login info! What they call “manual” input of lodging info requires separately searching the hotel address to even save the info, a nuisance if someone else sets up the trip. I get that privacy is a lost cause these days, but at least give users the clear and simple option to manually type in info, search for and locate hotels whether booked or not I really wanted to love this app. After hitting multiple roadblocks, and having been spanked (through diminished functionality) for not permitting the automatic rollover into a paid subscription (HATE the subscription model, btw!) I’ve now deleted it.
Great app
by inspirationseeker on 2019/12/24 05:09

Nice app and Suggestion! 5 Stars!
by pmayland on 2019/12/24 04:45
Very useful to have everything in one spot. Is there any way you can incorporate a way to find places where you can purchase international 4G hot spots not only On the plane but where they can be purchased internationally? For example I went to Germany recently and I was unable to find a SIM card to call back to the states. I have to pay cover like $2/ minute just to call home. Is no problem with an International Plan at home in the States but traveling to Europe can be a pain in the butt if you want to use your phone outside of someone’s WiFi which still doesn’t give you access to be able to make a regular card without a SIM card. Just a suggestion. It was my first Time ever traveling and I found that to be the worst part of the trip. lol
Pretty cool!
by greg on the go on 2019/12/23 19:45
I send all of my flight info to my calendar, but it doesn’t necessarily find them all. Just spent an hour catching it up. I do a lot of private jet travel as well and do not know how to enter those types of flights. It does not recognize corporate terminals. Hard to believe I am in the top 1% of travelers globally. I wish airlines treated me like that! Lol Fun to look at stats once in a while. Thank you for the reply Noel, I appreciate the instructions on how to enter private flights. Note; I hade only 5 commercial flights last year that were not imported into the app.

One of the top two travel apps ever made!
by PhilipCardwell on 2019/12/18 00:12
App in The Air is my second favorite travel app ever (the first, and in my opinion the best is Flighty). While most of the REALLY good travel apps have “upped their game”, App in The Air and Flighty have gone above and beyond to stand out and supply you information that is not only useful, but also necessary, accurate and nicely displayed. I’m a premium subscriber to both apps and I believe that paying for the premium subscriptions is well worth it, if you fly more than a couple of times a year. It’s also worth noting that the “really good” travel apps (such as these) spend a lot of money to provide their apps with the timely and accurate data feeds that provide the end user (that’s me and you) with all of this detailed travel information that we’re seeing.

Interesting approach to booking: liked best match functionality. Please add support for more airlines for in-app booking
Good, but tries to do too much
by K. M. Peterson on 2019/12/15 17:44
Very handy. However, I have the impression that to fully utilize the functionality it needs a _lot_ of sensitive access - for example, I found its import from Tripit wasn’t complete when I added plans to Tripit after my initial connection to the service. That is all I’m willing to give it now. Also, it’s kind of a hacker’s playground. I see the features, but I’m too technical to want to find out what doesn’t work without knowing how things are implemented before I spend time (and get “locked in” to) a new thing. I wish the documentation was better, but I realize that most people will just be sold on it and give it a try without my level of expectations and privacy concerns. To wit: I’m wary about letting any app simply try to parse through my email continually looking for travel receipts. If it is possible (and it may be, but wasn’t obvious) to set up an address just from which plans could be email-forwarded (as with Tripit) it would be a fine alternative. If I were paying for Tripit’s subscription features, and it was clear I could set up an address as mentioned above (accept and process forwarded mail, but you aren’t getting credentials to pull from that account), I’d be very inclined to drop Tripit for App In The Air, but my needs at this point don’t justify it. I like the app, wish you luck, and will look forward to seeing it get better.

Such a fun app
by amriccardi83 on 2019/12/14 01:20
I’m loving this app
One of the top two travel apps ever made!
by PhilipCardwell on 2019/12/18 00:12
App in The Air is my second favorite travel app ever (the first, and in my opinion the best is Flighty). While most of the REALLY good travel apps have “upped their game”, App in The Air and Flighty have gone above and beyond to stand out and supply you information that is not only useful, but also necessary, accurate and nicely displayed. I’m a premium subscriber to both apps and I believe that paying for the premium subscriptions is well worth it, if you fly more than a couple of times a year. It’s also worth noting that the “really good” travel apps (such as these) spend a lot of money to provide their apps with the timely and accurate data feeds that provide the end user (that’s me and you) with all of this detailed travel information that we’re seeing.
Hit and miss
by G-Mo on 2019/05/31 05:21
Automatic checkin was really handy on my first check in, but on my second it changed my pre-selected “main cabin extra” seat 8A to 25C (which shouldn’t even have been possible if I *didnt* have a pre-assigned seat given my auto checkin preferences). That makes auto check-in useless (I had to go into the American app and reselect my seat, which was fortunately still available). For flight info and updates it’s handy: automatically detected my reservations from my email so there was no data entry. It didn’t pick up the correct seat assignment from my American Airlines reservations (e.g. 12F instead of 12B somehow on one flight), but it was easy enough to edit that, and I’d use my boarding pass on the plane anyway. It also let me know about a lounge at STL I didn’t know about before, although it wasn’t in the terminal I was going to. It’s managed to replace Kayak as my source of flight info, although Kayak is free. I hope auto checkin gets more reliable, because it would be handy if I could trust it to not thoroughly screw up my prepaid seat assignment.
Good app but some UI improvements needed
by DocNartman on 2018/12/15 03:18
I fly >100k miles a year with a mix of international and domestic destinations. This app is great to predict potential delays and also track my overall progress and other stats (types of planes, milestones, etc). The only negative is how it displays the current flight status as tiles where I have to swipe to see the anticipated arrival gate, etc and the location of the plane midnight doesn’t provide a map since I’m not hooked up to the internet. This is where Tripit and FlightRadar24 best this app out respectively. Tripit provides a really quick snapshot of what I have to do and where I need to go. While FlightRadar pretty much provides near real time data on the plane among other things. True, flightradar also needs WiFi, but it provides far more useful information when connected such as weather along the flight path, where other flights are coming from, etc. I typically use this app, flightradar, and Tripit to predict delays. I wish there was one app.
Good, but tries to do too much

Caution of iCloud Sync Feature
by Ramseju on 2020/01/29 20:13
Recently resolved a big issue with app by learning that by default App in the Air is installed with iCloud sync active by default. If you also sync your iCalendar with ur iCloud account, App in the Air will pull in all of the flights (going back years) from your calendar and will put them into an “Unsorted” status. Then, you’ll have to manually disposition all of those flights bc the app doesn’t know if the trip was your trip or that of another person. In my case, the app had 668 unsorted flights. Uff!!! To resolve, I had to delete the app, reinstall, turn off iCloud sync for the app and then re-link it with Trip-It. I can see why the app may need to link with iCloud if you manually add flights...this way ur data is safe. But if your flight data comes from other sources (emails, TripIt, etc), having iCloud sync enabled can cause a lot of data and performance issues.
Really helpful app!!
by Ash-01 on 2019/06/24 18:43
I was researching what apps to use for my upcoming trip to Florida and I had a layover so I figured it was best to be prepared Incase any gate changes happens. This app was the best thing I’ve ever downloaded because the day before I was flying out, it already had what gate my flight was departing from. The best thing was that the night before the flight it told me what gate and number my flight was departing from, what gate my flight was landing at, and what gate + number my other flight was departing from. Not even the own airline had all of that information!! The airline just told me the basics like what gate Im supposed to be at, not the number. Will definitely remember this app whenever I’m flying. Thank you so much, don’t know how you guys get that information but it’s very useful!!
Essential for air travel
by Gilamath on 2019/11/14 09:16
Look, planes are hard. I’ve been flying my whole life, and I’ve seen both best-case and worst-case scenarios in air travel. You can never guarantee the best, but App in the Air gives you the tools to avoid the worst. Ticket info, boarding pass, flight times, delays, local weather and traffic conditions, airport/airline info, and especially travel timelines are all necessary to have, but keeping track of it all (and more) is awfully stressful. App in the Air does it all for you, meaning you have less to worry about. I figured out for myself through repeated failure that worry is its own sort of baggage on airplanes. It’s cumbersome, unnecessary, and should be minimized wherever possible. To that end, App in the Air is a flyer’s best friend!
Needs a lot of work
by NotExiled on 2018/03/15 06:27
I downloaded the app in order to try it out (and had to give my credit card information to do so - very bad) and tried it with a trip I’m on now. The SMS alerts, the part I find most useful, are wrong and annoying. I got a message two days before my flight saying check in was open. It wasn’t until a day before the flight. I received many messages yesterday, the day of my first flight, telling me that the arrival terminal had changed. It hadn’t and one would have been enough. I got one of those at 1:30 in the morning, around 12 hours after I had arrived. During the day yesterday I received this series of messages, in this order: arrival terminal changed, flight landed, status changed to landed, arrival terminal changed, (after 5 hours) flight takes off in 15 minutes, arrival terminal changed, (at 1:30 am) arrival terminal changed. Too many problems, more annoying than helpful.
Nice synching with Apple Watch
by Armaced on 2018/06/19 23:28
I don’t fully understand all of the features yet, but I love the integration with the Apple watch when trying to get between gates. Note - I had previously written a harsh review due to some double charges, but Apple eventaully gave me a refund, so I am updating my review. Just be careful: If you subscribe to the 14 day trial, then decide to opt for the lifetime subscription, you WILL still be charged for the Annual subscription when the trial has ended. Also, trying to get a refund out of Apple involves negotiating a lot of dead ends, but ultimately paid off. It appears that none of my issues were the fault of App In The Air.
Good, but missing two must-have features
by rfarwell5 on 2017/12/05 18:53
Hi, overall, I really enjoy this app. But I have two major concerns that I hope can be rectified in a future update: (1) I think there should be an option to have “Boarding at Gate XYZ” display on the iPhone and Apple Watch complication BEFORE boarding begins. It’s super unhelpful that Gate information doesn’t appear until it’s literally time to board. (2) As a big aircraft nerd, I’m really disappointed that the “Aircraft” tab of bookings is almost always blank. This is public information, so I do not understand this oversight. It would be really nice to have the Aircraft section actually work, with illustrations of the aircraft model, and also, seat configurations, which I now have to use a separate app for. If these concerns were addressed, I’d gladly rate this app 5 stars instead of 3.5 (which rounds down to 3).
False advertising and underhanded charges
by SourceChild on 2019/01/04 03:26
I want my money back!!! The sole reason I wanted this app was because I saw their promotion displaying AA flight info on Apple Watch. Well I found out after paying that a user cannot actually subscribe to AA accounts. So that’s strike 1. Then I was sorely made aware that there are actually dozens of travel service companies that I cannot link to. It was a lie! The big one that hit me today.... The subscription period... The screw you because they do not actually offer a year. Instead they charge for a calendar year and they do not pro rate. So I first signed up mid December. When I found out I was shafted $30 I was angry but figured it was my own bad luck. However today when I was charged another $30 because it’s a new “calendar year” is when I became really angry. This app is a scam and a piece of crap. It’s false advertisement and a rip off and I’m not only reviewing but reporting to Apple.
Consistently gets dates and time zones wrong
by Jimalaiyah on 2018/09/05 06:09
I was super excited to integrate App in the Air into my daily routine. I’m a heavy business traveller. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work. Specifically, it posts flights to my calendar ON THE WRONG DAYS... and AT THE WRONG TIMES. As far as I’m concerned, this falls into the “you had one job” category. It also has cities in the US, which are in the same time zones, categorized in different time zones. Apparently, Raleigh, NC and Miami, FL are in different time zones (they’re not). I had a flight from the US to India show up on completely wrong days, and because I just trusted the app, I very nearly missed a flight and scheduled a number of meetings around incorrect information at great personal expense and embarrassment. If you plan to use the automatic calendaring feature, do not use this app. Maybe it’ll change, but it hasn’t yet. I submitted a support request and got nothing in return. Deleted.
Great info/interface, Poor database coordination
by Gfb1 on 2017/12/24 17:23
I was very excited when I first read the reviews and downloaded/opened the app: great, intuitive, and slick interface, useful data, and the opportunity to upgrade for additional useful features at a reasonable price. However, I was sadly disappointed by the weak database integration. Well over half of the flights that I wanted to enter did not populate using the airline, flight number, and date; I needed to enter these flights manually, including the time of departure and time of arrival. These were a mix of domestic and international flights, mostly on AA, but also involving other carriers: there was consistently weak access. Please note that my test of some 10 flights was mostly historic; but, all within the last 2 months. This is an app that I would love to use. However, it is not yet ready for me. Update 24 Dec 2017 I keep playing with the app: I want to find justification to use it. But, unfortunately, my update is to indicate that what I had indicated to be over half of the flights entered did not sync with the database proved to be a gross underestimate. Of the 44 flights that I logged into the system for 2017, no more than six or seven were recognized: all others needed to be entered manually.
Use it for over a year (50 flights a year), so-so
by dk379 on 2019/09/29 10:54
The goal of this review is to communicate to developers what works and what doesn’t. Overall it’s a nice app and annual subscription is worth it. Let me start from good things: automatic search by origin-destination, flight number. Reminders. Map of flights on globe. Now for broken or disfunctional: After update white theme has too much of flight info, only 2 flights fit on big XR screen. In comparison, older version fits 3 flights on 6s. Always forgets my personal passport number and sometimes asks for “National ID” (don’t have it) in addition to passport number/expire. If you paste PNR (6 letters) from email it adds space by itself then complains it’s malformed. Automatic checkin works with major airlines but hit or miss with Wizz Air with no warning. No search or filter by date or city. Shame. Most important and this is why 3 stars and not 4: they killed automatic calendar update! I was relying on App in the Air to add those quite useful calendar entries, with reminders to leave for airport. Now it’s gone! My older iPhone 6: still has previous “blue theme” app and it works.
Good app. Helps me keep track of all my flights.
by Derpoet on 2019/02/28 19:50
I find the app does lots of good things. I fly lots of different airlines, and it keeps me organized. The only thing I would streamline, and I’m not the only one who has said this, is a function while I am making transfers. I want one screen that says “You are arriving on flight xxxx at gate xxxxx. Your next flight is xxxx departing for xxxx from gate xxxx in xxxx minutes.” All that information is in the app, it’s just not super easy to get to. And if it was on my Apple Watch that would be even better. On the watch you’d just need the next flight, the gate, and a countdown timer.
App in the air
by adrian8572mac on 2017/08/30 15:22
It was my first time using this app. It's absolutely amazing (on iphone and watch..sometimes on watch when you open the app directly from "complication" it's say "add flight from iphone" and you have to completely close the ⌚️ app and opening again. But overall I'm really glad that I've install this app. It's even works "offline " with airplane mode activated on both devices still works (iphone widget and complication on ⌚️ it's showing how much time left until landing or departing). Thank you all the team who's working on this beautiful app that actually works.
Imports
by skb35 on 2020/01/26 14:36
Updating review: Back to emailing easily and using this app daily. They changed the email address to send itineraries to and I did not get any notice. But they reached out to me and gave me new address so all good. This is a fun app to keep track of your travel. This used to be my favorite app and I switched from tripIt because this one was fun. BUT about 2 months ago, it can no longer import by forwarding the confirmation emails from American or delta. It used to be able to do this, but no longer. So options now are fill out this spreadsheet first that they provide or give them access to my entire inbox. No thank you. Going back to trip it.
Useful App, but...
by PilotSkippy on 2017/12/08 05:25
I’ve been using this app for over a year now. Even though I’m overall happy with its performance and its ability to pull booking information from my email and calendar accounts, it’s missing a few “little things.” I’d love to have the ability for the app to either pull or let me manually add additional hotel and rental car information when my trips are broken up within the same travel stays. An example: I’m traveling to NY this month. Staying on Staten Island a few days then, moving across the river to stay in Manhattan. I have two hotels and two rental cars booked during my but, the app only either allows or shows only one car and one hotel. Like I said. Little things.
Great Travel App
by EURR on 2020/02/11 17:36
I’ve been using the app for about a year and it’s a great tool to help keep your travels organized and display your year to date & overall lifetime statistics. The world map showing all your travels and the video it generates is a super cool feature I really enjoy from the app. I’d recommend for more American based airlines to be added to the loyalty program section as American, United, & Delta are currently missing but it’s not a deal breaker for me. I encourage and recommend this app to other worldly travelers & it’s a great app to use alongside other airline/travel apps. Edwin R.R
Fix the issue with delay status.
by swnby on 2019/07/04 01:01
Great app, but, you don’t allow users to update delay status unless we immediately state such within minutes of original departure. When my flight is 10 minutes delayed you block users from updating and the stats to show an accurate departure which screws up the purpose of the app. Please allow us to manually update delays for up to a couple hours after the original flight time (or longer). When my flight is delayed 10 minutes and I try to update the delay (as we’re waiting) the user is locked out from applying an update! Quick fix for a major annoyance. Thanks. Update: Developers day they will fix this...
Not an improvement from existing tools
by blue hawk on 2019/03/04 08:11
I was stoked to try this out. I’ve flown 250K+ miles in the last few years across many different airlines. It’s a bit of a pain to log every flight manually as well as remember to check in to flights. I thought App in the Air would be the one stop shop I was looking for. Unfortunately it misses pulling in the occasional flight, doesn’t include some aircraft information so I have to go to flightaware and openflights anyway. I splurged on the auto check in since I thought it would be extremely useful. From my experience it doesn’t work at all. Also, the very most popular US airline loyalty programs are not available. I’m sure there’s a good reason for it but at this point, it’s not useful to me.
Fun & Informative
by garyfowler on 2018/03/12 05:41
This app helps make some of your business travel more fun by showing you maps of where you have flown and how much time you have spent in the air; how many aircraft you have been on, and how many airports you have been to (among many other things). It also has some useful features like automatic check-in and flight tracking. I really like the app and have used it for a couple of years now. I recommend it for business travelers, especially those that like to track metrics in their life (like steps, .etc).
Best travel to have
by Tinker two sticks on 2018/04/09 10:15
This app has made traveling so much more convenient with being able to keep all the details needed in the same place. The auto check-in feature is also really convenient with with airlines that use your check in timing to determine your boarding position. I also really enjoy that all my travel is automatically added to this app through my email. If you travel a little or a lot, this app will make the experience a bit easier.
Amazing concept, but lots of bugs
by russiancreamej on 2018/05/11 09:47
This app’s concept and idea is great and I’m really excited to see what they have in store b/c I can see this app improving and developing in many ways. The opportunity with this app is great, I really hope the developers get on top of these bugs and maybe apply a cleaner interface on the home screen, as well as an option to create folders to organize flights. P.S. The automatic video of flight history has a lotttttttt of work needed to it but I like the idea. I could see it turning out really interesting and fun. The AR feature is easily the most fluid and appealing feature of this app
So far so good
by Gr8ki$$eR on 2018/06/10 07:58
Day 1 - all the data entry is worth the time and effort. The time I'm going to save in the airport so far is almost 30-40min. BUT, I've not had this app long enough to make an opinion worth reading but gimme a couple of weeks and I will.. stay tuned ............... 10 months later and I am really digging the app it’s not always the happiest app when it uses my google acct for sign in and itinerary parsing but for more good than bad. YOU MUST HAVE THIS APP IF YOU TRAVEL FREQUENTLY! I am on the road 9 months out of the year it does a lot for making the most time spent on where your at vs where your going...
Gave me the wrong terminal in Dubai!
by Yoni Z on 2019/10/12 22:40
If it was any other airport this wouldn’t be a huge deal but in Dubai you could miss your flight. My flight was in Terminal 3 but the app said terminal 2. I went to terminal two just to find out that that was incorrect and had to come back to T3. Mind you, terminal 2 and 3 are not close to each other in Dubai. They are not connected by shuttle buses or a tram system between them. I had to get another Taxi and drive about 10-15’ to T3. If I didn’t give myself enough time by heading to the airport early it could have been a worse outcome. All in all though I really enjoy this app and would recommend it.
Most useful travel app
by CFI Pilot on 2018/12/22 15:20
I travel 3-4 times a month, so I spend a lot of time in travel apps. I typically use TripIt to track my travel info, but it is not very real-time. I just discovered App in the Air and love that it brings in flight info from TripIt and adds a lot of additional information. I haven't tried the auto-check in yet, but will do that for my next trip. I don't fly Southwest a lot, but that could pay for the subscription alone if you can get a good boarding position.
Better than the competion. Wish more free features were included.
by Caleb L6 on 2017/09/04 21:07
I like this app. I've used a few like TripItPro and others. This is an all-in-one type app. Accurate and works with the iWatch but I'm not sure it provides as much value as it should. We're not business travelers otherwise I think the paid feature would be beneficial. For that reason we don't want to pay the fee. We travel often enough that this is a go-to app just wished some basic features like alerts would be included with the free version.
Good app
by Rivotril86 on 2017/12/14 23:44
It’s a great app I love I can keep track of my past flights since I flight a lot. I just don’t know why someone would have to pay to receive notifications, or to auto-check in. I mean, when you buy a flight ticket you receive an e mail sending you the information of the flight, on my iphone my calendar gets the info and keeps sending me information and notifications about the flight for free, I also can auto-check in on the airline’s internet page for free too, and so my family members. I know who created this good app need to get a profit for doing this but I just don’t see my self paying for something I already have for free. Besides that, is a good app I have used it more than 50 times, I would definitely pay to have it, but I will never pay for a subscription, it just doesn’t make sense.
Big Fan
by InlettecluatMall on 2018/12/05 16:50
I have been a fan of App in the Air since its conception. It was great before and has only gotten better at flight tracking. You do need to buy push notifications, but I think they present it in a way that makes sense. I travel about once every other month and just pop my flight info in after purchasing my tickets. This way I know where to look when the date approaches and I don't need to scour my emails for an itinerary.
Subscription doesn’t make sense for most
by Jade Kahn on 2019/10/06 03:01
I like this app for the most part. I like glancing at my Apple Watch and seeing how long a flight has left. But since I travel 2 to 3 times a year, the subscription model makes zero sense. I would be happy to toss a few $ for a causal version to get live updates, but not at the cost of $3 a month. Maybe $3 for 10 flights or something. I wonder how much money they lose because casual travelers won’t pay for a subscription when they only need a few flights. Obviously they are only targeting frequent flyers with their subscription
Great UX and overall soliton but ...
by GROSH10 on 2019/09/29 00:09
I think the overall idea of the app is fantastic. The UX between iPhone and Apple Watch is really good . I would appreciate if you can give me feedback about the following “limitations “: 1.- Import trips . i don’t want to give full access to my email (hotmail) to import trips . Why don’t you guys offer the possibility to receive the itinerary via email and then you guys import it to my app directly ? Others like TripCase do this very well . 2- Departure time vs Contdown When is see my flight details I do see a remaining time to fly like 4 hrs , 25 min instead of my departing time . . So when someone ask me , ey a what time is your flight I need to calculate back based to remember my exact despartirme time. Can you guys offer both options or at least the separarme time first ? 3- security issues to impart flight My Hotmail account doesn’t allow me to grant you access to my email so I cannot import my flights Thank you !
Feature-rich but nags for paid upgrades.
by Fitztacular on 2018/07/16 21:43
This app contains a plethora of features and is immensely useful for travel but they utilize "dark patterns" in attempting to get you to sign up for a paid subscription. For instance, they ask you if you want to receive push notifications for your flight and if you click "Yes", iOS asks you to confirm your new paid subscription. Nowhere in the previous alert does it mention that push notifications are a paid subscription, but clicking "Yes" begins a checkout process for a fairly expensive subscription. This is just one example.
The best. Period. There is no better
by Pewh on 2019/11/15 12:52
I used my first flight tracking app with my iPhone 3 just after the App Store launched in 2008. FlightTrack Pro. I was saddened when Expedia bought that company and killed that app. However, this project far exceeds my expectations what possible. Like revealing to me how many flights I had taken on a 737 MAX before it was grounded. Scary good design and always interesting use of data I didn’t realize was good to store and see from time to time. Great job.
Best airline app!
by tugger99 on 2019/10/23 00:15
Have used it for almost 3 years and love it. I am a lifetime member. It keeps excellent tracking of your flights and it is fun to replay the 'video' of your trips. Tracks time to boarding, departure, arrivals and everything else you will ever need. Customer service is excellent and fast responses give you confidence in the technical team of developers. Frequent travelers who use United/American need to petition their airlines to allow input of data! Excellent APP, very pleased with the value. JT
Good but not the Best
by Prometheus641 on 2019/05/20 15:14
This app is pretty decent. It has great, up to date info about almost anything I could want at a glance for my flight. However, the memberships area is confusing to me. Not only does it not have my primary company’s loyalty program (United Air Lines MileagePlus program) but it also doesn’t seem to do anything other than tell you you’re in that program. Can this be an area that fast links to the app? Or even just has the membership number? That would be super helpful.
like an ultra-efficient secretary
by acwooo on 2019/11/15 15:32
this app was great when it first came out but it’s incredible now with all of the added features- i’ve come to depend on it whenever i travel especially since i get notifications about delays and flight changes faster than from any other platform or service (including the airlines themselves). aside from not cluttering important flight information, i’m glad that the app makes it easy to figure out what the relevant weight limits/flight restrictions are per carrier. with flight details, it works a treat with the apple watch app since it means i have all of the information i need on my wrist and no longer have to fumble through a litany of emails, texts and websites. more complications for the watch would be awesome.. but otherwise great job!
Visually Cluttered, Gives the Wrong Type of Information
by SPTrask on 2018/04/23 20:33
I don’t really get the excitement over this app. Visually it’s a mess. It’s difficult to find the important information that you need, and most of the time the information you need is only given in and indirect way. It never just tells you basic things like what time boarding starts. Instead it tells you how many minutes from now boarding ends. So you need to try to extrapolate from that how far from now boarding probably starts, and then do the math to figure out what time that would be. This is not how anyone want a flight tracking app to work.
Unintuitive
by Kleinias on 2017/08/11 08:42
I agree with some of the other reviewers here: 'App in the air' is unintuitive and does not present clear information at a glance. When I have multiple same day flights it's somewhat unclear as to which flight I'm looking at and what information corresponds to their respective flights. The stand out feature of this app are the alerts which I have found to be very fast and clearly display what is occurring (for instance flight delayed for 30 minutes). The alerts have so far been reliable and the fastest of any of the flight apps I've tried so far.
Moving backwards in interface
by mlnd2 on 2020/02/15 12:23
I’ve always found this app very helpful in organizing my “flight life” but the recent updates in look and feel are like ten steps backwards, with lots of extra taps to see information that was previously readily available. For example, it’s disappointing to have to now click in to see the details of itineraries that were previously conveniently laid out on screen. Similarly it is extra effort to look up details of upcoming itineraries and other individuals’ itineraries. I appreciate the effort to improve the app, but “fixing” the things that aren’t broke isn’t an improvement.
Great Concept, still needs work
by Dissapointed Watch User on 2019/12/08 01:32
I love the concept and all of the information in one place and largely hands off, but it still seems to be fairly glitchy. It doesn’t handle cancellations and flight changes well without manual intervention, and I seem to occasionally get notifications for flights I’ve never booked (wrong date) or wrong times for flights. Just this weekend the notifications for my outbound flight were two hours off and then I started getting notifications for my return flight the wrong day.
Alert badge
by TFHome on 2019/11/27 00:22
When a notification happens the badge indicates it but when I clear all it does not change the badge indicator. Keeps display alerts. I have deleted app and reinstalled no change. I have a lifetime subscription and it is frustrating that I have to continually check if there are new notifications on my flight only to find there are none. That being said the app is great just let me know how to fix it as others may experience as well. Thanks
Fantastic app!
by Ikershaw on 2018/09/14 02:11
This is the travel app you've been waiting for. It provides flight info, airport info, and even automatic checkin (which works). While other apps do this, it offers more than competitors like TripIt and tripcase with comprehensive travel tracking over time. I love seeing the miles flown, airports visited, airlines flown, plane types, countries visited and of course the map of it all. Thank you for bringing out this app and I hope everyone uses it!
Privacy Nightmare, Cancelling Sub Cancels Trial
by Phil in Colorado on 2019/12/24 17:27
I’d have enjoyed running App In The Air through its paces for a couple weeks during the free trial period, but some functionality disappeared once I instructed the subscription management NOT to start charging me. Expense tracking stopped working. I had a general sense that this app demands WAY too much private information. It wants me Facebook, my Google, even my email and banking login info! What they call “manual” input of lodging info requires separately searching the hotel address to even save the info, a nuisance if someone else sets up the trip. I get that privacy is a lost cause these days, but at least give users the clear and simple option to manually type in info, search for and locate hotels whether booked or not I really wanted to love this app. After hitting multiple roadblocks, and having been spanked (through diminished functionality) for not permitting the automatic rollover into a paid subscription (HATE the subscription model, btw!) I’ve now deleted it.
Confusing app
by confused/annlyed on 2019/03/11 12:56
Hard to look for and follow basic travel info. To many messages prior to flight take off to review and clear. Stick getting this one because it looks like all the others have stopped making updates. I want to be reminded of flight take off and arrivals and what gates. As well be able to send info to family. This can send but I’m not sure how it looks when it does. Not user friendly at all. I hope they fix to Hebe a better experience. I travel a lot and I don’t find this app useful but again forced to use because my other ones faded out updates. I could go on and on about negatives, but I usually don’t do reviews.
A must for traveling. Integrates with your Email for flight info.
by bstef on 2018/11/30 14:49
I been using this app since it came out and it's nice to have all your flight info in one place. It's been improved over time and very easy You can integrate it with your email and TripIt (another great app) to pull your flight info and also shows you the stats of your flights over the years and to brag to your friends where you been.
Absolutely love it
by emoragrega on 2018/10/13 19:10
This is my #1 app when traveling. It has been improving a lot since I started using it. Continue adding new features to make it more useful every day. The only request I would like to make is to be more accurate when planes get delayed. I have been in 3 planes delayed in the past months and the app doesn’t work that well when these situations happen. Thank you
Best App Out There
by katandjazzy on 2019/01/24 20:16
I’ve never written an app review but this is my favorite iPhone app and watch app. The notifications are FASTER than the individual airline apps. I’m shocked but it’s amazing! And it makes traveling fun. If you have the watch I recommend making a travel watch face with this in the center. Then you just glance at your wrist and it automatically tells you the time plus how long until you board/land/takeoff. Sweet!
Merry Christmas to you all.
by DopeBiz6-9 on 2018/12/28 06:05
I just like to say. You know what your life looks like when you have your own way to make positivity louder and your future is a better life than the other things that were in there. Someone needs some help with the new business and a lot of things to do with my family this coming year . Merry Christmas and Happy is always the way I wanna see you. #F1st.#PositivityAlwaysWins

Cool idea, poor results
by Cb005 on 2020/02/21 21:36
App never updates my flights, thought it just didn’t find all previous flights, but even all new flights don’t make it onto my profile... I’ve taken about 30 flights so far in 2020 and it still says ZERO... I’ve linked all my email accounts but it doesn’t link to all frequent flyer accounts, so the data isn’t accurate.
Love the app it’s very easy and useful
by ahay24127 on 2020/02/20 21:11
Great app
Amazing!!!
by Quadruplee4 on 2020/02/20 14:07
Hey I already rated this app on my other device that has now crashed. But this is an amazing app! It has flight alerts, it has videos, it even has Loyalty Programs! This is an amazing app if you fly. Download it now! Do not wait until after you’re next flight!!!👍🏼
Beats Apple wallet
by Not the developers friend on 2020/02/19 17:17
I’m all for any app that makes my life simpler. This one does. I use it for all my travel. Only down side is that it doesn’t recognize some of the smaller foreign airlines in my inbox so updates aren’t automatic. But that’s a minor detail.
Started out well but showing problems over time
by VariableChart on 2020/02/19 14:32
One major problem with flight detail extraction and one minor problem with usability 1. It’s missed flights and worse it jumbled up the flights to and from (Update: this happens but with much lesser frequency than before) 2. It doesn’t show passenger list so it’s hard to figure out whose flight it is some times (Update: This is still a problem)
I like it

Nice helpful tool!

Helps me track my loved ones flights itineraries; so I know when they’re flights are on time, early or delayed.

Best app ever

Gives an organized flight plan with all sorts of extra info. Perfect!
Love this app but can be better
by Hassaan22 on 2020/02/13 22:03
I wish we could control what we would like to be notified of. I keep getting dumb notifications for arrival gate changes and stuff like that, which I do not care about at all. Also, I wish it did a better job in syncing and not having me sort my flights every time I refresh! It’s so annoying.
Great app ruined
by content_BK on 2020/02/13 05:47

Used to Be Good
by Frustrated Faster on 2020/02/12 13:12
At this point, all of the important features have stopped working. Somehow they managed to take a very good app and make it worthless. Email parsing doesn’t find flights anymore, expense reports don’t export all transactions, past flights have somehow been marked as future flights and various other issues have cropped up. Sorry that I made a “lifetime” purchase. There should be some accountability for companies who sell you something on a “lifetime” basis and then let the quality of that product go to zero.
Great Travel App
by EURR on 2020/02/11 17:36
I’ve been using the app for about a year and it’s a great tool to help keep your travels organized and display your year to date & overall lifetime statistics. The world map showing all your travels and the video it generates is a super cool feature I really enjoy from the app. I’d recommend for more American based airlines to be added to the loyalty program section as American, United, & Delta are currently missing but it’s not a deal breaker for me. I encourage and recommend this app to other worldly travelers & it’s a great app to use alongside other airline/travel apps. Edwin R.R
Useful

App in the Air is in it to win it
by Collaborator on 2020/02/09 03:13
I fly over 120,000 miles a year and so get heavy use of App in the Air. Clearly, App in the Air is in it to win it. It’s on the ball, steadily improving its functions, look, and style.
Cool
by ahammer24 on 2020/02/08 19:34
I travel frequent enough that this app is useful, especially on my Apple Watch. I love that everything is easily accessible in one spot! I do wish it could pull the boarding pass from the wallet app. So far, seems “simple enough” but still kind of an information overload! But I am pleased...tonight will be my initial test! Thanks!

From Amazing to Horrible
by starbrightsurfer on 2020/01/31 01:16
I have had this app from the day they started. In fact I was lucky enough to get a very cheap lifetime membership(I grandfathered in). I travel nonstop, on planes 8-10 times a month. This by far is the best app on the market. Without it, I would be lost. However, this last update was nothing more than grabbing for something to submit. It's HORRIBLE!!! You can tell the developer ran out of ideas for an update and did whatever. There's a saying ”if it ain't broke, don't fix it”. Please put all the settings like they were before. If not, I will have to he forced to search for another app.Oh and please fix all the mistakes the new update produced.
Doesn’t work
by jmdidday on 2020/01/30 00:11
I wanted this to work as it has a nice interface and Apple Watch support but...it doesn’t get my enterprise exchange emails and thus no corporate flight info, and I can’t add United Mileage Plus to pull flight in that way. And it breaks up connections so that they appear as separate “trips” requiring way too much maintenance on my side. I can see myself spending hours editing flight info which isn’t how I want to spend my time.
Caution of iCloud Sync Feature
by Ramseju on 2020/01/29 20:13
Recently resolved a big issue with app by learning that by default App in the Air is installed with iCloud sync active by default. If you also sync your iCalendar with ur iCloud account, App in the Air will pull in all of the flights (going back years) from your calendar and will put them into an “Unsorted” status. Then, you’ll have to manually disposition all of those flights bc the app doesn’t know if the trip was your trip or that of another person. In my case, the app had 668 unsorted flights. Uff!!! To resolve, I had to delete the app, reinstall, turn off iCloud sync for the app and then re-link it with Trip-It. I can see why the app may need to link with iCloud if you manually add flights...this way ur data is safe. But if your flight data comes from other sources (emails, TripIt, etc), having iCloud sync enabled can cause a lot of data and performance issues.
Very nice!
by Goldman_O on 2020/01/27 12:23
Useful, nice and fun
Imports
by skb35 on 2020/01/26 14:36
Updating review: Back to emailing easily and using this app daily. They changed the email address to send itineraries to and I did not get any notice. But they reached out to me and gave me new address so all good. This is a fun app to keep track of your travel. This used to be my favorite app and I switched from tripIt because this one was fun. BUT about 2 months ago, it can no longer import by forwarding the confirmation emails from American or delta. It used to be able to do this, but no longer. So options now are fill out this spreadsheet first that they provide or give them access to my entire inbox. No thank you. Going back to trip it.
Latest Release falls short
by Sunfyre84 on 2020/01/25 20:47
The latest release makes trips look visually appealing but functionality falls flat. No longer have at quick glance the gate to gate route for a layover. Trips are no longer being read, and some trips are showing completely incorrect city pairs. While I used to look at the app every time on layover and before flights, I find myself no longer using it.
Great app!

by Louie's Dad on 2020/01/17 17:05
Love this app. Links to TripIt and gives timely and accurate updates on flight status. Also keeps me informed about progress of flights I’m following, especially of friends and family flying somewhere. Definitely better than the others out there and I’ve tried them all. Deleted all of them from my phone except this one.
So worth it!!!

One of the best tracking apps now, and I feel like I‘ve tried them all. The only thing it lacks is a „where is my plane now“ feature. But otherwise very helpful alerts and very accurate tracking
Wants WAY too much information

Hit and miss
by Harmakis7 on 2020/01/07 15:45
I use to love this app, had great info and kept everything together. The Apple Watch app was great too. However I can NOT get it to load any more of my trip data. I have tried countless times and it won’t find my email from SWA in my inbox and import anymore. It use to have a email you could use to fwd the email but can’t find that with new updates. Sad that I can’t get this to work anymore.
1st time use

Great App! Get it!
by EthanA75 on 2020/01/05 01:58
I love this app. It is amazing and does everything. From checking in for you to a breakdown of timing to notifying family members of your progress. I have recommended this app countless times and will do so in the future. I have the pro subscription and I absolutely recommended it. Here are some features in particular I like: -Loyalty Card Management -Flight time breakdown -Offline flight progress -Gate change notifications -Family notifications -World rankings with your time in the air. To cut it short get the app! It is amazing and it is a life savor. It is even better for first time flyers, yet still amazing for frequent flyers as well.

Easy to use and reliable

This app is easy to use, has many useful functions and is reliable.
Has Potential
by AuburnB on 2019/12/31 14:48
This app has potential. But no matter what I try it will never have all of my flights stick. Every time I log back in my flights from my email have to be sorted again. I’ll add a new flight manually and it won’t track. My review video and my stats never line up. Will be a great app if they can get some of the basics to not be so buggy.
Good and getting better!
by Mfitz911 on 2019/12/31 01:14
Much potential and looking forward to many additional features and updates upcoming.
We’ll always have Ushuaia
by Dowshpdx on 2019/12/29 16:17
Standing in line for hours during an airline strike in Ushuaia. Screen right next to agent says plane leaves in 45 minutes. App says planes leaves in 11 hours. I say, ok I’m going with your screen right there. Response: “Oh don’t do that. That App is more reliable and accurate. We are on strike”. True story. And yes App was spot on. Confirmed it 11 hours later.
Issue in the lasted update
by AmirHamzaSikandar on 2019/12/29 15:38
There seems to be an issue with the latest app update whereby the years are not shown against your travels. Or perhaps I am not able to locate that new setting? Used to display just fine until before this latest update. Help needed!
It works.
by Irked Bear on 2019/12/29 05:58
The onboarding bit is clunky, but it’s doing interesting helpful things now. It’s similar to other apps I use to optimize travel, but better UI in the looks department.
Great App for a frequent traveler!!!
by Jeffersonreed71 on 2019/12/27 22:53
I travel almost every week for work. This app is great!!! It not only tracks your flight, but let’s you know how long it takes to get to the airport. Very handy in cities you’re not normally in!!!
Great app!

by AoVoo🍎 on 2019/12/26 14:32
I’ve downloaded the app today and it seems to be a good app to gather flight info. However when I tried to search the flight thru the app, it just crashed. I’m using iPhone X and ver 13.3.
Excellent App

Best flight tool for travel
by F173638 on 2019/12/25 14:35
Provides the most useful information on gates and boarding times. The Apple Watch component is the best. Really helps keep track of how much time to get to gate.

Privacy Nightmare, Cancelling Sub Cancels Trial
by Phil in Colorado on 2019/12/24 17:27
I’d have enjoyed running App In The Air through its paces for a couple weeks during the free trial period, but some functionality disappeared once I instructed the subscription management NOT to start charging me. Expense tracking stopped working. I had a general sense that this app demands WAY too much private information. It wants me Facebook, my Google, even my email and banking login info! What they call “manual” input of lodging info requires separately searching the hotel address to even save the info, a nuisance if someone else sets up the trip. I get that privacy is a lost cause these days, but at least give users the clear and simple option to manually type in info, search for and locate hotels whether booked or not I really wanted to love this app. After hitting multiple roadblocks, and having been spanked (through diminished functionality) for not permitting the automatic rollover into a paid subscription (HATE the subscription model, btw!) I’ve now deleted it.
Great app

Nice app and Suggestion! 5 Stars!
by pmayland on 2019/12/24 04:45
Very useful to have everything in one spot. Is there any way you can incorporate a way to find places where you can purchase international 4G hot spots not only On the plane but where they can be purchased internationally? For example I went to Germany recently and I was unable to find a SIM card to call back to the states. I have to pay cover like $2/ minute just to call home. Is no problem with an International Plan at home in the States but traveling to Europe can be a pain in the butt if you want to use your phone outside of someone’s WiFi which still doesn’t give you access to be able to make a regular card without a SIM card. Just a suggestion. It was my first Time ever traveling and I found that to be the worst part of the trip. lol
Pretty cool!
by greg on the go on 2019/12/23 19:45
I send all of my flight info to my calendar, but it doesn’t necessarily find them all. Just spent an hour catching it up. I do a lot of private jet travel as well and do not know how to enter those types of flights. It does not recognize corporate terminals. Hard to believe I am in the top 1% of travelers globally. I wish airlines treated me like that! Lol Fun to look at stats once in a while. Thank you for the reply Noel, I appreciate the instructions on how to enter private flights. Note; I hade only 5 commercial flights last year that were not imported into the app.
Cool

Liked the app and it seems very helpful. It automatically adds your trips and hotel bookings and gives all the details about your trip at one place, which becomes very convenient.

One of the top two travel apps ever made!
by PhilipCardwell on 2019/12/18 00:12
App in The Air is my second favorite travel app ever (the first, and in my opinion the best is Flighty). While most of the REALLY good travel apps have “upped their game”, App in The Air and Flighty have gone above and beyond to stand out and supply you information that is not only useful, but also necessary, accurate and nicely displayed. I’m a premium subscriber to both apps and I believe that paying for the premium subscriptions is well worth it, if you fly more than a couple of times a year. It’s also worth noting that the “really good” travel apps (such as these) spend a lot of money to provide their apps with the timely and accurate data feeds that provide the end user (that’s me and you) with all of this detailed travel information that we’re seeing.

Booking

Interesting approach to booking: liked best match functionality. Please add support for more airlines for in-app booking
Good, but tries to do too much
by K. M. Peterson on 2019/12/15 17:44
Very handy. However, I have the impression that to fully utilize the functionality it needs a _lot_ of sensitive access - for example, I found its import from Tripit wasn’t complete when I added plans to Tripit after my initial connection to the service. That is all I’m willing to give it now. Also, it’s kind of a hacker’s playground. I see the features, but I’m too technical to want to find out what doesn’t work without knowing how things are implemented before I spend time (and get “locked in” to) a new thing. I wish the documentation was better, but I realize that most people will just be sold on it and give it a try without my level of expectations and privacy concerns. To wit: I’m wary about letting any app simply try to parse through my email continually looking for travel receipts. If it is possible (and it may be, but wasn’t obvious) to set up an address just from which plans could be email-forwarded (as with Tripit) it would be a fine alternative. If I were paying for Tripit’s subscription features, and it was clear I could set up an address as mentioned above (accept and process forwarded mail, but you aren’t getting credentials to pull from that account), I’d be very inclined to drop Tripit for App In The Air, but my needs at this point don’t justify it. I like the app, wish you luck, and will look forward to seeing it get better.

Hit and miss
by G-Mo on 2019/05/31 05:21
Automatic checkin was really handy on my first check in, but on my second it changed my pre-selected “main cabin extra” seat 8A to 25C (which shouldn’t even have been possible if I *didnt* have a pre-assigned seat given my auto checkin preferences). That makes auto check-in useless (I had to go into the American app and reselect my seat, which was fortunately still available). For flight info and updates it’s handy: automatically detected my reservations from my email so there was no data entry. It didn’t pick up the correct seat assignment from my American Airlines reservations (e.g. 12F instead of 12B somehow on one flight), but it was easy enough to edit that, and I’d use my boarding pass on the plane anyway. It also let me know about a lounge at STL I didn’t know about before, although it wasn’t in the terminal I was going to. It’s managed to replace Kayak as my source of flight info, although Kayak is free. I hope auto checkin gets more reliable, because it would be handy if I could trust it to not thoroughly screw up my prepaid seat assignment.
Good app but some UI improvements needed
by DocNartman on 2018/12/15 03:18
I fly >100k miles a year with a mix of international and domestic destinations. This app is great to predict potential delays and also track my overall progress and other stats (types of planes, milestones, etc). The only negative is how it displays the current flight status as tiles where I have to swipe to see the anticipated arrival gate, etc and the location of the plane midnight doesn’t provide a map since I’m not hooked up to the internet. This is where Tripit and FlightRadar24 best this app out respectively. Tripit provides a really quick snapshot of what I have to do and where I need to go. While FlightRadar pretty much provides near real time data on the plane among other things. True, flightradar also needs WiFi, but it provides far more useful information when connected such as weather along the flight path, where other flights are coming from, etc. I typically use this app, flightradar, and Tripit to predict delays. I wish there was one app.

Caution of iCloud Sync Feature
by Ramseju on 2020/01/29 20:13
Recently resolved a big issue with app by learning that by default App in the Air is installed with iCloud sync active by default. If you also sync your iCalendar with ur iCloud account, App in the Air will pull in all of the flights (going back years) from your calendar and will put them into an “Unsorted” status. Then, you’ll have to manually disposition all of those flights bc the app doesn’t know if the trip was your trip or that of another person. In my case, the app had 668 unsorted flights. Uff!!! To resolve, I had to delete the app, reinstall, turn off iCloud sync for the app and then re-link it with Trip-It. I can see why the app may need to link with iCloud if you manually add flights...this way ur data is safe. But if your flight data comes from other sources (emails, TripIt, etc), having iCloud sync enabled can cause a lot of data and performance issues.
Really helpful app!!
by Ash-01 on 2019/06/24 18:43
I was researching what apps to use for my upcoming trip to Florida and I had a layover so I figured it was best to be prepared Incase any gate changes happens. This app was the best thing I’ve ever downloaded because the day before I was flying out, it already had what gate my flight was departing from. The best thing was that the night before the flight it told me what gate and number my flight was departing from, what gate my flight was landing at, and what gate + number my other flight was departing from. Not even the own airline had all of that information!! The airline just told me the basics like what gate Im supposed to be at, not the number. Will definitely remember this app whenever I’m flying. Thank you so much, don’t know how you guys get that information but it’s very useful!!
Essential for air travel
by Gilamath on 2019/11/14 09:16
Look, planes are hard. I’ve been flying my whole life, and I’ve seen both best-case and worst-case scenarios in air travel. You can never guarantee the best, but App in the Air gives you the tools to avoid the worst. Ticket info, boarding pass, flight times, delays, local weather and traffic conditions, airport/airline info, and especially travel timelines are all necessary to have, but keeping track of it all (and more) is awfully stressful. App in the Air does it all for you, meaning you have less to worry about. I figured out for myself through repeated failure that worry is its own sort of baggage on airplanes. It’s cumbersome, unnecessary, and should be minimized wherever possible. To that end, App in the Air is a flyer’s best friend!
Needs a lot of work
by NotExiled on 2018/03/15 06:27
I downloaded the app in order to try it out (and had to give my credit card information to do so - very bad) and tried it with a trip I’m on now. The SMS alerts, the part I find most useful, are wrong and annoying. I got a message two days before my flight saying check in was open. It wasn’t until a day before the flight. I received many messages yesterday, the day of my first flight, telling me that the arrival terminal had changed. It hadn’t and one would have been enough. I got one of those at 1:30 in the morning, around 12 hours after I had arrived. During the day yesterday I received this series of messages, in this order: arrival terminal changed, flight landed, status changed to landed, arrival terminal changed, (after 5 hours) flight takes off in 15 minutes, arrival terminal changed, (at 1:30 am) arrival terminal changed. Too many problems, more annoying than helpful.
Nice synching with Apple Watch
by Armaced on 2018/06/19 23:28
I don’t fully understand all of the features yet, but I love the integration with the Apple watch when trying to get between gates. Note - I had previously written a harsh review due to some double charges, but Apple eventaully gave me a refund, so I am updating my review. Just be careful: If you subscribe to the 14 day trial, then decide to opt for the lifetime subscription, you WILL still be charged for the Annual subscription when the trial has ended. Also, trying to get a refund out of Apple involves negotiating a lot of dead ends, but ultimately paid off. It appears that none of my issues were the fault of App In The Air.
Good, but missing two must-have features
by rfarwell5 on 2017/12/05 18:53
Hi, overall, I really enjoy this app. But I have two major concerns that I hope can be rectified in a future update: (1) I think there should be an option to have “Boarding at Gate XYZ” display on the iPhone and Apple Watch complication BEFORE boarding begins. It’s super unhelpful that Gate information doesn’t appear until it’s literally time to board. (2) As a big aircraft nerd, I’m really disappointed that the “Aircraft” tab of bookings is almost always blank. This is public information, so I do not understand this oversight. It would be really nice to have the Aircraft section actually work, with illustrations of the aircraft model, and also, seat configurations, which I now have to use a separate app for. If these concerns were addressed, I’d gladly rate this app 5 stars instead of 3.5 (which rounds down to 3).
False advertising and underhanded charges
by SourceChild on 2019/01/04 03:26
I want my money back!!! The sole reason I wanted this app was because I saw their promotion displaying AA flight info on Apple Watch. Well I found out after paying that a user cannot actually subscribe to AA accounts. So that’s strike 1. Then I was sorely made aware that there are actually dozens of travel service companies that I cannot link to. It was a lie! The big one that hit me today.... The subscription period... The screw you because they do not actually offer a year. Instead they charge for a calendar year and they do not pro rate. So I first signed up mid December. When I found out I was shafted $30 I was angry but figured it was my own bad luck. However today when I was charged another $30 because it’s a new “calendar year” is when I became really angry. This app is a scam and a piece of crap. It’s false advertisement and a rip off and I’m not only reviewing but reporting to Apple.
Consistently gets dates and time zones wrong
by Jimalaiyah on 2018/09/05 06:09
I was super excited to integrate App in the Air into my daily routine. I’m a heavy business traveller. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work. Specifically, it posts flights to my calendar ON THE WRONG DAYS... and AT THE WRONG TIMES. As far as I’m concerned, this falls into the “you had one job” category. It also has cities in the US, which are in the same time zones, categorized in different time zones. Apparently, Raleigh, NC and Miami, FL are in different time zones (they’re not). I had a flight from the US to India show up on completely wrong days, and because I just trusted the app, I very nearly missed a flight and scheduled a number of meetings around incorrect information at great personal expense and embarrassment. If you plan to use the automatic calendaring feature, do not use this app. Maybe it’ll change, but it hasn’t yet. I submitted a support request and got nothing in return. Deleted.
Great info/interface, Poor database coordination
by Gfb1 on 2017/12/24 17:23
I was very excited when I first read the reviews and downloaded/opened the app: great, intuitive, and slick interface, useful data, and the opportunity to upgrade for additional useful features at a reasonable price. However, I was sadly disappointed by the weak database integration. Well over half of the flights that I wanted to enter did not populate using the airline, flight number, and date; I needed to enter these flights manually, including the time of departure and time of arrival. These were a mix of domestic and international flights, mostly on AA, but also involving other carriers: there was consistently weak access. Please note that my test of some 10 flights was mostly historic; but, all within the last 2 months. This is an app that I would love to use. However, it is not yet ready for me. Update 24 Dec 2017 I keep playing with the app: I want to find justification to use it. But, unfortunately, my update is to indicate that what I had indicated to be over half of the flights entered did not sync with the database proved to be a gross underestimate. Of the 44 flights that I logged into the system for 2017, no more than six or seven were recognized: all others needed to be entered manually.
Use it for over a year (50 flights a year), so-so
by dk379 on 2019/09/29 10:54
The goal of this review is to communicate to developers what works and what doesn’t. Overall it’s a nice app and annual subscription is worth it. Let me start from good things: automatic search by origin-destination, flight number. Reminders. Map of flights on globe. Now for broken or disfunctional: After update white theme has too much of flight info, only 2 flights fit on big XR screen. In comparison, older version fits 3 flights on 6s. Always forgets my personal passport number and sometimes asks for “National ID” (don’t have it) in addition to passport number/expire. If you paste PNR (6 letters) from email it adds space by itself then complains it’s malformed. Automatic checkin works with major airlines but hit or miss with Wizz Air with no warning. No search or filter by date or city. Shame. Most important and this is why 3 stars and not 4: they killed automatic calendar update! I was relying on App in the Air to add those quite useful calendar entries, with reminders to leave for airport. Now it’s gone! My older iPhone 6: still has previous “blue theme” app and it works.
Good app. Helps me keep track of all my flights.
by Derpoet on 2019/02/28 19:50
I find the app does lots of good things. I fly lots of different airlines, and it keeps me organized. The only thing I would streamline, and I’m not the only one who has said this, is a function while I am making transfers. I want one screen that says “You are arriving on flight xxxx at gate xxxxx. Your next flight is xxxx departing for xxxx from gate xxxx in xxxx minutes.” All that information is in the app, it’s just not super easy to get to. And if it was on my Apple Watch that would be even better. On the watch you’d just need the next flight, the gate, and a countdown timer.
App in the air
by adrian8572mac on 2017/08/30 15:22
It was my first time using this app. It's absolutely amazing (on iphone and watch..sometimes on watch when you open the app directly from "complication" it's say "add flight from iphone" and you have to completely close the ⌚️ app and opening again. But overall I'm really glad that I've install this app. It's even works "offline " with airplane mode activated on both devices still works (iphone widget and complication on ⌚️ it's showing how much time left until landing or departing). Thank you all the team who's working on this beautiful app that actually works.
Imports
by skb35 on 2020/01/26 14:36
Updating review: Back to emailing easily and using this app daily. They changed the email address to send itineraries to and I did not get any notice. But they reached out to me and gave me new address so all good. This is a fun app to keep track of your travel. This used to be my favorite app and I switched from tripIt because this one was fun. BUT about 2 months ago, it can no longer import by forwarding the confirmation emails from American or delta. It used to be able to do this, but no longer. So options now are fill out this spreadsheet first that they provide or give them access to my entire inbox. No thank you. Going back to trip it.
Useful App, but...
by PilotSkippy on 2017/12/08 05:25
I’ve been using this app for over a year now. Even though I’m overall happy with its performance and its ability to pull booking information from my email and calendar accounts, it’s missing a few “little things.” I’d love to have the ability for the app to either pull or let me manually add additional hotel and rental car information when my trips are broken up within the same travel stays. An example: I’m traveling to NY this month. Staying on Staten Island a few days then, moving across the river to stay in Manhattan. I have two hotels and two rental cars booked during my but, the app only either allows or shows only one car and one hotel. Like I said. Little things.
Great Travel App
by EURR on 2020/02/11 17:36
I’ve been using the app for about a year and it’s a great tool to help keep your travels organized and display your year to date & overall lifetime statistics. The world map showing all your travels and the video it generates is a super cool feature I really enjoy from the app. I’d recommend for more American based airlines to be added to the loyalty program section as American, United, & Delta are currently missing but it’s not a deal breaker for me. I encourage and recommend this app to other worldly travelers & it’s a great app to use alongside other airline/travel apps. Edwin R.R
Fix the issue with delay status.
by swnby on 2019/07/04 01:01
Great app, but, you don’t allow users to update delay status unless we immediately state such within minutes of original departure. When my flight is 10 minutes delayed you block users from updating and the stats to show an accurate departure which screws up the purpose of the app. Please allow us to manually update delays for up to a couple hours after the original flight time (or longer). When my flight is delayed 10 minutes and I try to update the delay (as we’re waiting) the user is locked out from applying an update! Quick fix for a major annoyance. Thanks. Update: Developers day they will fix this...
Not an improvement from existing tools
by blue hawk on 2019/03/04 08:11
I was stoked to try this out. I’ve flown 250K+ miles in the last few years across many different airlines. It’s a bit of a pain to log every flight manually as well as remember to check in to flights. I thought App in the Air would be the one stop shop I was looking for. Unfortunately it misses pulling in the occasional flight, doesn’t include some aircraft information so I have to go to flightaware and openflights anyway. I splurged on the auto check in since I thought it would be extremely useful. From my experience it doesn’t work at all. Also, the very most popular US airline loyalty programs are not available. I’m sure there’s a good reason for it but at this point, it’s not useful to me.
Fun & Informative
by garyfowler on 2018/03/12 05:41
This app helps make some of your business travel more fun by showing you maps of where you have flown and how much time you have spent in the air; how many aircraft you have been on, and how many airports you have been to (among many other things). It also has some useful features like automatic check-in and flight tracking. I really like the app and have used it for a couple of years now. I recommend it for business travelers, especially those that like to track metrics in their life (like steps, .etc).
Best travel to have
by Tinker two sticks on 2018/04/09 10:15
This app has made traveling so much more convenient with being able to keep all the details needed in the same place. The auto check-in feature is also really convenient with with airlines that use your check in timing to determine your boarding position. I also really enjoy that all my travel is automatically added to this app through my email. If you travel a little or a lot, this app will make the experience a bit easier.
Amazing concept, but lots of bugs
by russiancreamej on 2018/05/11 09:47
This app’s concept and idea is great and I’m really excited to see what they have in store b/c I can see this app improving and developing in many ways. The opportunity with this app is great, I really hope the developers get on top of these bugs and maybe apply a cleaner interface on the home screen, as well as an option to create folders to organize flights. P.S. The automatic video of flight history has a lotttttttt of work needed to it but I like the idea. I could see it turning out really interesting and fun. The AR feature is easily the most fluid and appealing feature of this app
So far so good
by Gr8ki$$eR on 2018/06/10 07:58
Day 1 - all the data entry is worth the time and effort. The time I'm going to save in the airport so far is almost 30-40min. BUT, I've not had this app long enough to make an opinion worth reading but gimme a couple of weeks and I will.. stay tuned ............... 10 months later and I am really digging the app it’s not always the happiest app when it uses my google acct for sign in and itinerary parsing but for more good than bad. YOU MUST HAVE THIS APP IF YOU TRAVEL FREQUENTLY! I am on the road 9 months out of the year it does a lot for making the most time spent on where your at vs where your going...
Gave me the wrong terminal in Dubai!
by Yoni Z on 2019/10/12 22:40
If it was any other airport this wouldn’t be a huge deal but in Dubai you could miss your flight. My flight was in Terminal 3 but the app said terminal 2. I went to terminal two just to find out that that was incorrect and had to come back to T3. Mind you, terminal 2 and 3 are not close to each other in Dubai. They are not connected by shuttle buses or a tram system between them. I had to get another Taxi and drive about 10-15’ to T3. If I didn’t give myself enough time by heading to the airport early it could have been a worse outcome. All in all though I really enjoy this app and would recommend it.
Most useful travel app
by CFI Pilot on 2018/12/22 15:20
I travel 3-4 times a month, so I spend a lot of time in travel apps. I typically use TripIt to track my travel info, but it is not very real-time. I just discovered App in the Air and love that it brings in flight info from TripIt and adds a lot of additional information. I haven't tried the auto-check in yet, but will do that for my next trip. I don't fly Southwest a lot, but that could pay for the subscription alone if you can get a good boarding position.
Better than the competion. Wish more free features were included.
by Caleb L6 on 2017/09/04 21:07
I like this app. I've used a few like TripItPro and others. This is an all-in-one type app. Accurate and works with the iWatch but I'm not sure it provides as much value as it should. We're not business travelers otherwise I think the paid feature would be beneficial. For that reason we don't want to pay the fee. We travel often enough that this is a go-to app just wished some basic features like alerts would be included with the free version.
Good app
by Rivotril86 on 2017/12/14 23:44
It’s a great app I love I can keep track of my past flights since I flight a lot. I just don’t know why someone would have to pay to receive notifications, or to auto-check in. I mean, when you buy a flight ticket you receive an e mail sending you the information of the flight, on my iphone my calendar gets the info and keeps sending me information and notifications about the flight for free, I also can auto-check in on the airline’s internet page for free too, and so my family members. I know who created this good app need to get a profit for doing this but I just don’t see my self paying for something I already have for free. Besides that, is a good app I have used it more than 50 times, I would definitely pay to have it, but I will never pay for a subscription, it just doesn’t make sense.
Big Fan
by InlettecluatMall on 2018/12/05 16:50
I have been a fan of App in the Air since its conception. It was great before and has only gotten better at flight tracking. You do need to buy push notifications, but I think they present it in a way that makes sense. I travel about once every other month and just pop my flight info in after purchasing my tickets. This way I know where to look when the date approaches and I don't need to scour my emails for an itinerary.
Subscription doesn’t make sense for most
by Jade Kahn on 2019/10/06 03:01
I like this app for the most part. I like glancing at my Apple Watch and seeing how long a flight has left. But since I travel 2 to 3 times a year, the subscription model makes zero sense. I would be happy to toss a few $ for a causal version to get live updates, but not at the cost of $3 a month. Maybe $3 for 10 flights or something. I wonder how much money they lose because casual travelers won’t pay for a subscription when they only need a few flights. Obviously they are only targeting frequent flyers with their subscription
Great UX and overall soliton but ...
by GROSH10 on 2019/09/29 00:09
I think the overall idea of the app is fantastic. The UX between iPhone and Apple Watch is really good . I would appreciate if you can give me feedback about the following “limitations “: 1.- Import trips . i don’t want to give full access to my email (hotmail) to import trips . Why don’t you guys offer the possibility to receive the itinerary via email and then you guys import it to my app directly ? Others like TripCase do this very well . 2- Departure time vs Contdown When is see my flight details I do see a remaining time to fly like 4 hrs , 25 min instead of my departing time . . So when someone ask me , ey a what time is your flight I need to calculate back based to remember my exact despartirme time. Can you guys offer both options or at least the separarme time first ? 3- security issues to impart flight My Hotmail account doesn’t allow me to grant you access to my email so I cannot import my flights Thank you !
Feature-rich but nags for paid upgrades.
by Fitztacular on 2018/07/16 21:43
This app contains a plethora of features and is immensely useful for travel but they utilize "dark patterns" in attempting to get you to sign up for a paid subscription. For instance, they ask you if you want to receive push notifications for your flight and if you click "Yes", iOS asks you to confirm your new paid subscription. Nowhere in the previous alert does it mention that push notifications are a paid subscription, but clicking "Yes" begins a checkout process for a fairly expensive subscription. This is just one example.
The best. Period. There is no better
by Pewh on 2019/11/15 12:52
I used my first flight tracking app with my iPhone 3 just after the App Store launched in 2008. FlightTrack Pro. I was saddened when Expedia bought that company and killed that app. However, this project far exceeds my expectations what possible. Like revealing to me how many flights I had taken on a 737 MAX before it was grounded. Scary good design and always interesting use of data I didn’t realize was good to store and see from time to time. Great job.
Best airline app!
by tugger99 on 2019/10/23 00:15
Have used it for almost 3 years and love it. I am a lifetime member. It keeps excellent tracking of your flights and it is fun to replay the 'video' of your trips. Tracks time to boarding, departure, arrivals and everything else you will ever need. Customer service is excellent and fast responses give you confidence in the technical team of developers. Frequent travelers who use United/American need to petition their airlines to allow input of data! Excellent APP, very pleased with the value. JT
Good but not the Best
by Prometheus641 on 2019/05/20 15:14
This app is pretty decent. It has great, up to date info about almost anything I could want at a glance for my flight. However, the memberships area is confusing to me. Not only does it not have my primary company’s loyalty program (United Air Lines MileagePlus program) but it also doesn’t seem to do anything other than tell you you’re in that program. Can this be an area that fast links to the app? Or even just has the membership number? That would be super helpful.
like an ultra-efficient secretary
by acwooo on 2019/11/15 15:32
this app was great when it first came out but it’s incredible now with all of the added features- i’ve come to depend on it whenever i travel especially since i get notifications about delays and flight changes faster than from any other platform or service (including the airlines themselves). aside from not cluttering important flight information, i’m glad that the app makes it easy to figure out what the relevant weight limits/flight restrictions are per carrier. with flight details, it works a treat with the apple watch app since it means i have all of the information i need on my wrist and no longer have to fumble through a litany of emails, texts and websites. more complications for the watch would be awesome.. but otherwise great job!
Visually Cluttered, Gives the Wrong Type of Information
by SPTrask on 2018/04/23 20:33
I don’t really get the excitement over this app. Visually it’s a mess. It’s difficult to find the important information that you need, and most of the time the information you need is only given in and indirect way. It never just tells you basic things like what time boarding starts. Instead it tells you how many minutes from now boarding ends. So you need to try to extrapolate from that how far from now boarding probably starts, and then do the math to figure out what time that would be. This is not how anyone want a flight tracking app to work.
Unintuitive
by Kleinias on 2017/08/11 08:42
I agree with some of the other reviewers here: 'App in the air' is unintuitive and does not present clear information at a glance. When I have multiple same day flights it's somewhat unclear as to which flight I'm looking at and what information corresponds to their respective flights. The stand out feature of this app are the alerts which I have found to be very fast and clearly display what is occurring (for instance flight delayed for 30 minutes). The alerts have so far been reliable and the fastest of any of the flight apps I've tried so far.
Moving backwards in interface
by mlnd2 on 2020/02/15 12:23
I’ve always found this app very helpful in organizing my “flight life” but the recent updates in look and feel are like ten steps backwards, with lots of extra taps to see information that was previously readily available. For example, it’s disappointing to have to now click in to see the details of itineraries that were previously conveniently laid out on screen. Similarly it is extra effort to look up details of upcoming itineraries and other individuals’ itineraries. I appreciate the effort to improve the app, but “fixing” the things that aren’t broke isn’t an improvement.
Great Concept, still needs work
by Dissapointed Watch User on 2019/12/08 01:32
I love the concept and all of the information in one place and largely hands off, but it still seems to be fairly glitchy. It doesn’t handle cancellations and flight changes well without manual intervention, and I seem to occasionally get notifications for flights I’ve never booked (wrong date) or wrong times for flights. Just this weekend the notifications for my outbound flight were two hours off and then I started getting notifications for my return flight the wrong day.
Alert badge
by TFHome on 2019/11/27 00:22
When a notification happens the badge indicates it but when I clear all it does not change the badge indicator. Keeps display alerts. I have deleted app and reinstalled no change. I have a lifetime subscription and it is frustrating that I have to continually check if there are new notifications on my flight only to find there are none. That being said the app is great just let me know how to fix it as others may experience as well. Thanks
Fantastic app!
by Ikershaw on 2018/09/14 02:11
This is the travel app you've been waiting for. It provides flight info, airport info, and even automatic checkin (which works). While other apps do this, it offers more than competitors like TripIt and tripcase with comprehensive travel tracking over time. I love seeing the miles flown, airports visited, airlines flown, plane types, countries visited and of course the map of it all. Thank you for bringing out this app and I hope everyone uses it!
Privacy Nightmare, Cancelling Sub Cancels Trial
by Phil in Colorado on 2019/12/24 17:27
I’d have enjoyed running App In The Air through its paces for a couple weeks during the free trial period, but some functionality disappeared once I instructed the subscription management NOT to start charging me. Expense tracking stopped working. I had a general sense that this app demands WAY too much private information. It wants me Facebook, my Google, even my email and banking login info! What they call “manual” input of lodging info requires separately searching the hotel address to even save the info, a nuisance if someone else sets up the trip. I get that privacy is a lost cause these days, but at least give users the clear and simple option to manually type in info, search for and locate hotels whether booked or not I really wanted to love this app. After hitting multiple roadblocks, and having been spanked (through diminished functionality) for not permitting the automatic rollover into a paid subscription (HATE the subscription model, btw!) I’ve now deleted it.
Confusing app
by confused/annlyed on 2019/03/11 12:56
Hard to look for and follow basic travel info. To many messages prior to flight take off to review and clear. Stick getting this one because it looks like all the others have stopped making updates. I want to be reminded of flight take off and arrivals and what gates. As well be able to send info to family. This can send but I’m not sure how it looks when it does. Not user friendly at all. I hope they fix to Hebe a better experience. I travel a lot and I don’t find this app useful but again forced to use because my other ones faded out updates. I could go on and on about negatives, but I usually don’t do reviews.
A must for traveling. Integrates with your Email for flight info.
by bstef on 2018/11/30 14:49
I been using this app since it came out and it's nice to have all your flight info in one place. It's been improved over time and very easy You can integrate it with your email and TripIt (another great app) to pull your flight info and also shows you the stats of your flights over the years and to brag to your friends where you been.
Absolutely love it
by emoragrega on 2018/10/13 19:10
This is my #1 app when traveling. It has been improving a lot since I started using it. Continue adding new features to make it more useful every day. The only request I would like to make is to be more accurate when planes get delayed. I have been in 3 planes delayed in the past months and the app doesn’t work that well when these situations happen. Thank you
Best App Out There
by katandjazzy on 2019/01/24 20:16
I’ve never written an app review but this is my favorite iPhone app and watch app. The notifications are FASTER than the individual airline apps. I’m shocked but it’s amazing! And it makes traveling fun. If you have the watch I recommend making a travel watch face with this in the center. Then you just glance at your wrist and it automatically tells you the time plus how long until you board/land/takeoff. Sweet!
Merry Christmas to you all.
by DopeBiz6-9 on 2018/12/28 06:05
I just like to say. You know what your life looks like when you have your own way to make positivity louder and your future is a better life than the other things that were in there. Someone needs some help with the new business and a lot of things to do with my family this coming year . Merry Christmas and Happy is always the way I wanna see you. #F1st.#PositivityAlwaysWins
