Mobiata has updated its flight tracking and status app for iOS devices adding a number of new features and improvements. FlightTrack 4.1 adds a new Travel Details section where users can label their flights and record their own notes such as flight confirmation numbers, seat numbers and more. The new version also includes an integrated calendar view for picking flight dates, a new preferences section for more easily managing settings, and the ability to automatically remove old flights from the flight list and calendar. The user interface for syncing with iOS Calendars and TripIt (available in FlightTrack Pro) has also been simplified and the app performs better with large numbers of flights and when working offline or with a poor network connection. The update also fixes a number of bugs related to scheduling and display of recurring flights in certain time zones and managing long lists of flights. FlightTrack is available in both standard and Pro versions; FlightTrack ($5) includes a full set of flight tracking features including weather radar, gate and baggage claim information, flight delay forecasts and SeatGuru charts; FlightTrack Pro adds push notifications, airport delay and closure information and TripIt synchronization. Both apps are universal and require an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 3.0 or later.
