Boston-based flight-tracking software firm FlightView said it has launched an updated version of its Android (NASDAQ: GOOG) travel app FlightView 3.
According to the firm, the new release extends FlightView´s coverage globally and includes powerful itinerary management functionality.
FlightView 3.0 gives Android users the ability to automatically upload trip itineraries by forwarding itinerary confirmation emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, eliminating the need to track down confirmation codes and manually select flights within the app.
It also allows user to track flights all across the world, regardless of start and end points. FlightView said it now offers coverage for nearly 90% of all airline seats in the world — more coverage than any other mobile or online flight tracker.
Users can also access trip information and profiles across different devices. Travelers can edit their profiles and trips on one FlightView property (like FlightView.com) and see the changes on a different property, like an Android smartphone or even an iOS product, such as the iPad (NASDAQ: AAPL).
FlightView is the provider of real-time flight information solutions for the aviation and travel industries.
