IPhone App For Aviation News

Sun Jan 01, 2012 3:33 pm

I am wondering if there are any good iPhone apps for aviation/airline/airport news or forums. I looked around in the app store but most news sites were linked to expensive subscriptions or were based in specific countries. I am a little addicted to my new phone, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Flightglobal does has a app. But it's horrible.

You might also consider using Twitter, following various aviation news sources, airlines, industry bloggers, etc. Lots of Twitter apps available for the iPhone.

To start, I have an android so my info. may be way off. I just bookmarked A.net and can access everything I can on my laptop. Don't know if iphone will do that, I would think it could.

Thanks for the ideas. The only problem with a.net as far as I can see there is no mobile app so you have do a lot of resizing to see or read what you want. I might try the twitter route.

I use 'Skygrid' which can be programmed to follow topics of your choice - I have mine set up to collect any articles relevant to 'aerospace' or 'aircraft', but it produces a lot of useless garbage too. Haven't tried the flight global app or ATW though.

Works just like the android. Good topic thou. I just found the not free liveATC app on a side note. Can't get enough of it. Makes me think I'm flying UA all the time. Anyone know if there is a delay in the feed?

Hi sir... U can check in the apple store...the best aviation news in my perspective but its payware. Not much though

I dont know how to copy the link via iphone but you can search for it through this name: aviation airline news.

Its a picture of a green plane in the app store
