Redesign looks nice but flight setup stalls when you enter departure time. FIX THIS.
I thought I’d try this, sounds like a great idea. I just downloaded the app and it starts with sky guru texting you asking you when your flight is, flight number etc. but then it says “please repeat your request on a day before your data” when the flight I input was for tomorrow afternoon. Love the idea, hate that it does absolutely nothing
So I am a terrible flyer. I get extremely anxious and the worst thoughts possible come through my head when traveling via airplanes. Take off is actually my biggest issue and where I endure the most fear. I was on my way back home to Chicago 3 days ago and has a pretty terrible anxiety attack to the point where I thought I might die (literally). It got so bad that I wanted to rent a car for the way back and drive to Denver. Well I spent the entire weekend reading about airplanes and my fear of flying and someone stumbled into this app. I can say with confidence that this app saved me from going through the same thing again. The app takes its time to explain to you every single step an airplane takes from the moment you get in to the moment you get out. It tell you when you should expect turbulence and how bad it will be. It explains to you why it’s happening and so many more things. I will continue to use this app for the rest of my life I can GUARANTEE YOU. It told me the altitude of the plan, the pitch, the roll, where in the map I am, it would tell me when I’m crossing points of interests like major airports and cities. It couldn’t get better than that. Yes, the app does have some minor flaws. It could be worked on and made better but I’ll still give it a 5 star rating. It did for me everything that I needed the app to do. Thank you developers for creating a tool that will help me fly from now on.
I found my fear my flights increasing the more I flew as I started to notice more things, experienced flight in harsher weather, etc. My anxiety became debilitating and disruptive. This app gave me peace of mind. It explains everything that is occurring on your flight clearly, even explaining the occurrence of sensations that bother anxious flyers. I couldn’t be more thankful for this app and the peace it has given me.
Paid for and downloaded App. To begin using the app it keeps asking for “the code I’ve been sent”. I haven’t received a code despite many attempts to do so. So no way to use the app.
As someone who is not afraid of flying and absolutely loves it this app is a must! It explains what is going on and is perfect for the curious traveler.
Paid $9.99 for three flights. App didn’t work. Really disappointed.
I was really excited to try this app but I never received the code after I registered.
I really like this app. It helps me with my fear of flying by explaining what to expect next, calming me down during turbulence, gives me information for my peace of mind. Thank you for creating this app.
It really works great during flight with constant information of what is going on -and is so accurate. I like to know what to expect. The AR feature is also cool. However, today when i had already purchased and started a flight the app just logged me out asking to log in again, of course no more WiFi because the plane was taxing. I paid for the feature I did not even get to use . That was a really bumpy flight and every moment I thought I wish it did not crash on me like this... 9 hour flight ahead of me I hope it will not crash on me this time.
