I don’t know what’s happening but our flight is taking off soon and the app won’t even let me sign in to set it up, please help
The app simply refuses to login. Completely unusable
Pretty sure this app is the only reason I’m enjoying my honeymoon. Over the past few years I had a sudden fear of flying that was filled with dread and illogical thoughts. I came across this app a couple weeks ago since I have a lot of flights to go on this month. Having this app saved me from cancelling a month long honeymoon! I felt like I had a friend/pilot/therapist on the flight with me reassuring me about every sound and sensation, the safety , the tools , the sense of control is 10/10. Even explaining why there is fear of flying vs the reality of what is happening on the flight just makes me feel so safe and comforted. I haven’t had any glitches yet maybe once where it restarted and I had to re buy a flight but it was still worth it for me.
I’ve been a user of this since it’s development. I’m an anxious flyer and it has helped me so much but recently neither of the apps (old and new version-I prefer old version) have worked well. I really want this app to work and hope the developers continue to perfect this app because it’s so informative and works wonders for anxious passengers. Please keep this app going!
The old version was great! The new version is a chatbot that frequently has server errors or restarts.
Never able to find flight numbers and you have to enter in all flight info manually. Once It asks my for the time of flight the app just stalls out and never works. Regret buying 10 flights.
I was so excited about this app which was helpful on a couple of flights. However, I purchased another flight before an international trip and spent 30 minutes starting over because it kept logging me out. There is no way to reach a human either. I was panicking because I was relying on the app to help me through the flight. Now I’m trying to get a refund. There is absolutely no way to contact anyone. I’m was do hopeful, so I’m very disappointed. I have a lot of specific feedback I could give the designers, too, but there’s no way to reach anyone.
Charged me twice gave me no information about my flight. $12 down the drain
The estimated turbulence map from weather maps is great as a "psychological tool" to see roughly what to expect. However, the app is unreliable, many "server error"s and flight not found errors. Also the message-based ui feels like a cool experiment that is not very usable (it's very linear and cluttered).
This app is so hard to use. There’s no ability to go back. You get stuck in a virtual chat. It automatically fills info that you didn’t enter. Just completely frustrating.
