    "I use Flightview Plus anytime I'm traveling or have a traveler coming in for a visit. I've tried others, but they just don't compare. This app is so easy to use and reliable. Any flight info you need or changes to flights, it is there, always updated! It really is better than any other flight app I've tried."

    "A very useful app if you fly a lot. There is a yearly subscription fee, so it's not worth it if you only fly once or twice a year. But if you fly a lot, it's very convenient and works with most airlines/airports. So you don't have to have half a dozen apps on your phone for each airline, or try to use a web browser and the airline's site. It auto updates you on flights, sends reminders, and even has airport guides- very helpful when you're trying to make a connection in an unfamiliar airport!"

    "I don't travel that much but I hate having to refresh the airline's website for flight updates because it lags so much. FlightView gets me updated quickly when I'm in a hurry to pick someone up."
