    "Gate Guru is a great app. It makes travelling easier. However, it does provide similar services to company-specific flying apps. However, if you fly often with different airlines, this is very helpful."

    "This one is a pretty great airport app for android. One of its best features is a live widget of the next two scheduled flights. However, they are not updating anymore which kinda sucks."

    "Their UI improved, which is a really good thing. But the information on the screen is very limited but there are a lot of emtpy space around the edges. The interface is really not that good."

    "The app seems like a great idea... but there's no indicator to let you know how current/updated the wait time estimate is. Since wait times are socially aggregated based on user input, you're looking at the time generated by previous users... "

    "This app helped us bypass a good part of the long customs line at SeaTac airport. if I had known about it ahead of time I could have saved more time by filling out the information when we landed instead of when we got to the beginning of the customs line."

    " Was really hoping that this would work but the schedule that it keeps giving me makes no sense. It's telling me to wake up at midnight and go to bed at 8 am when I'm only shifting four hours (going backwards). :("
