Miss a connecting flight on the way to meet a client? Forget standing in line waiting for a customer service rep. FlightBoard will get you back on track in seconds. This clever app, which resembles the airline listings at the airport, pulls up every flight leaving from major airports across the globe from Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Ca. to Barajas Airport in Madrid. Pull up gate numbers, airline, and whether it’s on time, late, en route or still scheduled. You can sort by destination or arrival location, and even track a flight in mid-air for an extra fee. Workable on iPad, iPhone and Android devices, the app even tells you the kind of aircraft for the flight — helpful for those who prefer to avoid those regional CRJs for something with a tiny bit more legroom.
