App In The Air

Today I flew to Stockholm again this morning for a leadership course at work and took a flight back home to Gothenburg and every single time I use the app App in the air. Suprisingly, this might be one of my favorit apps and I will break it down for you and explain why.

  1. All the info I want!
    Yes, that’s right. It gives me all the info that I want, when I need it. When the check-in closes, when boarding starts, what gate I need to be at, when it leaves, when I should arrive and delays of there i any. Just magnificent. This is just how I want technology to work.
  2. Tracks me
    This might be scary to some people but I find in fantastict I can look back and see where and when I’ve been to different places in the world when I’ve been flying. I even gives me home many kilometers and how many hours I’ve spent flying. In fact it even tells me what plane models I’ve flue with and what airlines.
  3. Beautiful and Easy
    The app is just beautiful and shows with great grapics the statistics and the trips I’ve done on a map and then there are small acheivments thats fun to reach and really simple and easy to use.

    Bonus. It works with my Apple Watch which feeds me the most importat info that I want without even have to take my phone out of the pocket.

Summarizing the Apple Event

After months of waiting at least from me Apple had their event. Unfortunately the video feed from Apple had problems so it was very difficult to follow what was going on. But here is the short summary.

There will we two new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. iOS 8 will be released 17th September. However we heard nothing about OSX Yosemite. You can also download U2s’ latest album for free on iTunes.

And one more thing…

Apple watch where presented and it looks great. Right now I really want one but they will start selling early in 2015.

That’s the short summary and I will probably come back to it more later.

Right now I’m looking forward to try the new iOS 8 when it comes next week.
