It doesn’t matter where you go or how you get there, an app is available to you. If you travel a lot like I do it’s very convenient to be able to get all the information you need at your fingertips. Pretty soon most flights will be offering you Internet access and just how amazing that’s going to be remains to be seen. When you think back to 911, you might wonder how many lives could possibly have been saved if all flights had Internet access.
I admit that’s looking at the extreme and at the moment, all I can think about is how much less boring a flight would be if you could access the Internet. My friends and I travel a lot and we have many good ideas for our own apps. We just need to get our act together and go out and see an iOS developer and run through a few of our thoughts with him. There must already be 1000 applications that relate to flying, such as travel, airports, and flights so we will need to be rather creative to come up with something new.
If you have had a few ideas yourself and have done a little bit of travelling, you can find out here about how to get some of your ideas put into applications. Just take a look at some of the more amazing apps that are out there and that will help you get your head around thinking of some great variations. One of the best apps is called Fly Pro but it’s a bit pricey at $4.99 and there are a number of apps, not quite so good, but free.
From my investigations into app developments, I would suggest that you go to this website and find out as much as you can that might help you get your app vehicle on the road. In the meantime take a look at an app called Gate Guru, which is free, and with partnerships with airport management companies from around the world, it allows you to pull out information on shops, restaurants and other amenities in both domestic and international airports.
One thing we all hate but is an absolute necessity of flying are the security checkpoint lines which really try your patience. Download MiFlight and this collects information on waiting times from over 50 airports around the world. The app is fed information from disgruntled passengers who want to know: “Has the line moved yet?” Whatever you are doing at an airport, somebody has thought of an app that is going to either save you time or money. Imagine being able to do that with your own app and being paid for giving it to people free!
