FlightTrack 5


Tracking flights has never been easier. Stay informed of your air travel details 24/7 with timely notifications on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Even when you're not the one in the air, you can be well informed about the flight status of your friends and family.

FlightTrack also provides real-time departure and delay information, timely push notifications with flight updates, and gate numbers (when available). We’ll even inform you of cancellations and help you find alternate flights.

You can add flights to track manually (by number, route or airport), or we can do all the hard work for you. Just sign up for a Tripdeck account in the app, forward your confirmation emails to trips@expedia.com, and we’ll take care of the rest!

The no longer have Tripit integration ... a show stopper for me.
They have TripDeck integration now. I guess it's a service through Expedia but it works in the same way, i.e. forward the itinerary to an email address and it automagically adds it to the app.

Doesn't work with Tripit, only Expedia. I'll stick with the old version.

I don't use tripit, but I will try it based on how much you like it. I have the old version to go back to if needed. Yes flightrack is great :)
