An app to make air travel both easy, and fun (!) again
Harkening back to a kinder, gentler time when air travel "felt special" and dudes didn't wear tank tops on planes, Flying's a just-dropped iPhone app from a group of Dutch developers who want to "bring back the elegance and panache" of soaring the open skies. How? The app pretty much does two things -- one useful, one social
It even lets you compete with friends by generating a ranked leader-board based on how much time you spend in the air, showing how you can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.
And now, because moving pictures can be so much more engaging than boring old words (sigh), watch throwback footage of people flying while you learn how the app works.
