    With WindowSeat from Portland-based AppOven, LLC, air travelers in the continental U.S. can track their flights as they fly, learn more about places below them, and even share information with online friends and followers without needing GPS or a persistent network connection.

    WindowSeat’s simple interface, patent-pending technology, and affordability – just $6.99 – makes it a must-have for all air travelers. Upon entering departure and arrival airports, users can choose from one of five flight paths based on up-to-the-moment historical data between cities. Once they enter their wheel-up time, WindowSeat provides a view into the flight’s location and tracks how much time remains.

    During the flight, users can adjust the flight time, and the app will recalibrate the plane icon’s location on the map. Users can also adjust the plane location, and WindowSeat will recalculate the remaining flight time. Once an adjustment is made, WindowSeat automatically calibrates the flight’s speed.

    Key app features include the ability to track all commercial flights throughout the continental U.S., regular updates to ensure greater accuracy to flight predictions, and the points-of-interest database that includes descriptions of landmarks and geographical areas users can learn about when they fly over. *In addition, users can let their online friends and followers know about the points-of-interest they’re flying over with a simple update to their Facebook and Twitter.

    WindowSeat is available worldwide on the App Store:

    WindowSeat is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch. *Requires iOS 4.1 or later.

    I can't imagine my iPhone would get very good GPS reception in an airplane. My handheld geocaching GPS devices never did when I tried them in the past.

    I only tried my standalone GPS unit a couple times on a plane, but it seemed to work fine. The trick was to turn it on while on the tarmac so it gets a fix....shut it down when they tell you to turn off electronics, then turn it back on when you can turn electronics back on. I had window seats and held it up so it had a "view" out the window, but it worked fine.

    Good to know. The view out the window part is critical even for a hiking gps receiver.
