  • Useless, and a horrible interface

    The user interface for entering flight information is really awful. I was unable to find a way to get it to recognize the flight I was trying to look up, even though I know the flight is valid, because I can look it up on other tools. The other information this app provides is not particularly useful, so this app is very disappointing.
  • No data

    99% of searches ends up with "no results" I found the information on google, using Siri right away. Don't waste your money on this app.
  • All the information you don't need

    The app has lots of information that is of little use to the traveller; eg: there is no information about flights in the air, current updates, or the like.

    Doesn't know the ICAO Codes...couldn't find anything flying between Washington DC and Savannah. Don't think this is ready for prime time.

    This app does not work at all. Re-Loaded it twice. How do I get my $1.99 back?

    Made a mistake. Sorry The app pulls data from their server. Takes a while to load on an iPod!
  • Unresponsive...

    Sorry to say, my experience mirrors others' here. In my case, te app is now completely unresponsive, despite having reinstalled it twice. The lack of response from Wolfram is just as sad; they should be ashamed at the ratings consensus here. Wolfram, you should pull the app if you have any pride.
  • It just doesn't work

    It just doesn't work.
  • A One Star Rating is Overly Generous.

    I agree with the very low ratings. "Flight Seen in the Air" quit returning data several weeks ago; however, the WolframAlpha app returns the data so it is there to be found. I have sent in a report to the developers but so far see no response.
