Lots of flying and lots of time running through airports! If that's your lot in life - have a go at getting a copy of this little app! Took a chance - very happy with it!Had a query and Patrice was so quick in his reply and advice that I had to warn him that soon he'd put Microsoft's support out of business.Well done Patrice for a really nice app!
Cannot live without it anymore... by FSouza - United States - 1.2 - (12/01/2011)
Great App, very useful and well conceived. It saves unnecessary trips to the airport when a flight is cancel or delayed and that alone is already worth the affordable price of this app. Great job ! 5 stars.
