No matter if you’re a frequent buyer of air tickets or not, but you’re always looking for the cheapest rates available. The problem with air tickets is that there are hundreds of flights taking off in between your desired route on the same day and the rates vary over a great range of money. If you miss one, it’s very much possible that you end up suffering a loss of thousands of dollars. That’s because there are many variables such as the airlines, plane, flight duration, travel-class, route, etc which vary from one flight to another. Also, many times there are some special offers by some airlines and if you know where to find them, then you can bag one. So you need such a client who can get you such useful information quickly and anytime you want and we have one such client tonight with us.
I am talking about the latest Android app called Flights that has been developed by Aviascanner. The app is compatible with all the Android devices running Android 2.1 or any later version of the OS. As the name suggests, the app deals with air tickets and its booking but itself isn’t a ticket-booking service. Let’s find out what it actually is.
With Flights, you can check all the cheapest flights available for you. Just enter the destinations between which the flight is to be scheduled, departure date and other such details and you’ll get what you want. Try to add more and more such information so that the app may filter out the best for you. For example, if you haven’t decided for the duration of the flight and you want a direct flight, then the app will list both the direct and indirect flights. There are many more such filters like number of stops, connections time, etc so that you can find the best flight suitable for you.
Now as I said earlier, the app is not a ticket-booking service i.e. it doesn’t host the booking service itself. When you’re done finalizing the flight you want to book, then it takes you to the original website related to that ticket which is offering it. So you can buy a ticket from the website and the app has got nothing to do with it; there are no hidden charges.
The UI of the app is a clean chit. I don’t think it can be anything better than it currently is. There are many filters to choose from and you can change them individually. The flight rates you get here are some of the best that you can find anywhere and therefore you can rely on the app for the cheapest rates. Just one thing that if there could be an option for choosing the plane you want to go on, then it would have been better. It doesn’t matter to everyone especially if you’re going for a cheap flight, but still it could have been an option.
Pros: intuitive UI; cheap flights available; free.
Cons: model of airplane not possible to choose from.
I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
