ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Mobiata, developers of some of
the most beautifully designed and best-selling travel apps on the market,
released an important update to both FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro today,
offering a brand-new sharing feature. Just in time for the holidays, users can
now offer their complete flight path information via email and Twitter. By
simply sending a link, travelers can share the flight's progress, estimated
arrival time, gate and any information on delays. The update is available on
both iOS and Android versions of FlightTrack 4.5 ($4.99) and FlightTrack Pro
"Having the most accurate, up to date travel information is essential not only
to the traveler themselves, but their family and friends expecting them as
well," said Ben Kazez, GM and founder of Mobiata. "Our new update to
FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro enables users to give anyone their flight
status in real-time, on a beautiful map and without the recipients having to
own the app themselves, or for that matter, even a smartphone. For those less
tech-savvy family members who are still getting used to email, this is the
ideal way to send along your most current flight status."
A clickable link will direct users to a real-time map of the flight in
progress which is displayed on a map with satellite imagery. In addition, the
gate, terminal, airline and flight number are all now available for users to
share as well.
