Today, we announced the brand new SeatGuru mobile app, now available for FREE at your neighborhood app store. The iPhone app gives users access to our famous portfolio of seat maps (over 700 and counting), chock full of airplane seat reviews from real travelers. Users can also use the app to book cheap flights and get real-time flight status alerts. In short, it’s a must-have for anyone who likes to be “in the know” when it comes to air travel.
This new app is exciting because fans of SeatGuru are always on the go and rely heavily on their mobile phones; in fact, over 15% of all SeatGuru visits online are from a mobile device. So, we’re happy to finally give travelers the reliable advice and peace of mind that they’ve come to expect from using the site. And it’s free… does it really get any better than that?
More details on the app features:
- Color-Coded Seat Maps – Backed by more than 45,000 flier reviews, SeatGuru offers more than 700 color-coded airplane seat maps across 100 different airlines. Each seat map includes indicators for good seats (green), seats with some cautionary attributes (yellow), and seats to avoid (red), as well as detailed hover-over comments from fellow travelers.
- Flight Meta-Search Engine – Powered by TripAdvisor Flights, the app’s flight shopping engine searches for the lowest airfares across online travel agencies, discount airfare consolidators, major airlines, and low cost carriers.
- Real-Time Flight Alerts – The app offers real-time flight status updates, supplied by FlightAware, to alert travelers if their flight is delayed or canceled. Travelers can also have notifications sent to family and friends, so they can be kept updated on flight arrival times and other relevant travel information.
