Windows 8 App – Highlight: The Tower For American Airlines

  It also provides information on the layout of the terminals, if flights are currently on schedule, and other information that could not only be helpful if you are awaiting someone’s arrival but just in general for those who are aviation enthusiasts, this is pretty cool.   The only thing that could make a good app even better would be the ability to take the longitude and latitudes given for each flight as the progress (which is shown), and have them connect to Metro’s map feature to let us know exactly where these locations are. This probably wouldn’t have practical applications for everyone, but for aviation enthusiasts this could be a welcome feature. While I question how truly useful this app is for flight management at this stage, I don’t think that was really the point, it was instead a showcase item to show off the Metro UI and create a fun little app. In this area they succeeded. As a test bed it shows what a well-designed flight management tool could  look like with Metro, even if it doesn’t quite hit the mark in its current test form. Overall, I was glad I tried it out.]]>
