SkyGuru provides passengers with detailed explanations of everything happening in flight in real time, and keeps you busy on board. ---------- Imagine sitting next to a pilot who could explain every sound, every turn, every sensation you are feeling, notified you about any upcoming turbulent areas, and just turned your flying experience into a conscious process.

All in real time. - Unique helpful methods and exercises that to assist passengers in overcoming fear and making their flight more comfortable. --------- IMPORTANT NOTES! 1. Speed and altitude are only available with GPS signal. 2. The app is designed to be used ONLY on a REAL flight. 3. If you have any questions, we are always happy to assist 24/7..

    I have never, ever left a review for an app before. I feel that reviewing this app is so important because of how crippling flight anxiety is. I have struggled with a fear of flying most of my life but haven’t wanted to stop flying because I enjoy traveling. Recently, my tween children have started showing fears as well and I realized I need to truly get help. Medicating with Ativan and Xanax helps but only temporarily and leaves me groggy at the other end of the trip. Enter SkyGuru. I tried it on a whim, but was unsure because of cost and was worried because of reviews about it not working. Here’s some tips: Downloading will work right away, but the flight won’t access until closer to departure. The app says within 24 hours but I found it to be closer to 12. Also, my Delta flight needed to be entered as DL 9999 instead of just 9999 so those letters need to go first. As soon as it connected to my flight I began receiving the most interesting and helpful data regarding my flight!!! It knew when I checked into the airport. The history of my plane and it’s safety stats. I took a hair tie and anchored my phone to the arm of my seat and it calibrated to the plane. I put the phone in airplane mode when we began to taxi. I learned more about the flight than I ever have in my life. It told me all the feelings I was feeling and warned me of turbulence and how long I would be feeling it. I was able to share this with my nervous children and even with other passengers. I did all my usual things, earplugs, slow breathing, a small amount of anxiety meds (1/3 of my usual dose), but this app has changed everything. I am so grateful for this app. I feel that all anxious travelers should be using it and would readily shout it from the rooftops!!!

    I’m a frequent flyer but I have a crippling illogical fear of flying. All I can say is wow and thank you so much for this incredible app. It made me understand the procedures and different flight tactics that take place throughout the flight with a very impressive messaging system that updates you live. It felt as if I had the pilots ears and eyes and I knew exactly what was happening when it was happening. All I can say is if you have flight anxiety give this app a chance. It truly changed my life and how I perceive flying on one flight! Thank you so much and please keep up the amazing work at Sky Guru.

    Never could get registration to work. I don’t need an unstable, non working, amateurish app on my iPhone. So called support unhelpful and basically ignored me. Do not waste your time and certainly do not let them take your money.
  • App does not work at all- no response from their “Support” team

    As other reviewers have noted, the app does not work: in all instances I have tried to use it, I get the message “an internal error has occurred; please contact Support.” Of course, there appears to be no actual Support team. I reached out to them to request help, no response. I have had to file a complaint with my credit card co. at this point to get my money refunded. It is sad that these people are taking money from people they are promising to help. I call that “theft.”
  • Best App Ever!

    This app is one of the first things to actually help my fear of flying! It was so reassuring to have all the information in real time during the flight. I have told all my friends about it! I will definitely use it every time I fly from now on.
  • Didn’t work

    I paid for the 3 flights and the app didn’t work at all. Tried multiple times before my flight and throughout my flight. Wouldn’t even start the process. Needs to be fixed. Waste of money
  • Don’t bother

    The free version of the app provides almost zero value, tells nothing of what you’d actually get by buying it, and is essentially just a really complicated way to get no helpful info. To the app dev team, provide some clue first then ask for money. Also, any pathway in the free version totally resets your search...let my parameters persist so I don’t have keep entering in the same flight info again and again. Deleting this now.
  • Thank you

    The program is amazing! I have a fear to fly since I’m 15 and now I’m 24! I know about creator and I would like to speak with him about my problems in the future, because he is amazing psychologist and aviator! He did a great job to help people! So if you want to control your flight, go ahead and use this program! You will see and know a lot of stuff about your airplane and your flight! Thank you a lot! 👍🏻
