Look, no one likes flying. No one. With the possible exception of that guy who's racked up a billion airline miles and takes a round trip from JFK to Dubai just to get free cocktails. But since you've got to fly now and then, it's nice to have an aesthetically enjoyable way of keeping tabs on your flights and connections. Mobiata has a new, free version of the FlightTrack app, which is more than you can say for the dry sandwiches on your last non-stop Delta flight. And more than that, it's actually pretty awesome - this is easily the most visually appealing app of its kind on the Google Play Store.
Popular travel companion app FlightTrack received an update today that brings a few bugs fixes, as well as support for Honeycomb tablets. The updated interface really takes advantage of the screen real estate provided by most tablets, offering a large map-based overview of all flights that are being tracked and two new widgets. The flight search has also been optimized, creating a more intuitive experience across the board.
The standard version of FlightTrack will set you back $4.99, and the Pro version an additional $4.99, but judging by the near-five-star rating in the Android Market, it seems to be well worth the money.
