ITA Software’s new iPhone app

Gary posted about ITA’s new iPhone app today, and I downloaded it and gave it a try. For what it’s worth, I’m not very app savvy. I’ve had an iPhone for well over six months, and I’m pretty sure I’ve downloaded all of eight apps. But ITA has always been a very useful tool, so I figured I’d give this a shot too.

First of all, it’s free. What could be better than that? But it actually is quite useful. I haven’t played with it too much yet, but it’s easy to use, fast, and displays information in an easy to read way. As most of you probably know, you can’t actually book a flight through ITA Software, but it’s probably the best tool out there for comparing prices.

So while I won’t be using this as my primary tool to search for flights while on the road, I’ll most definitely be using it to quickly look up the price of a flight I’m looking at taking. The only thing I wish they had was the month-long calendar search.

Extremely well done, though, ITA!

  1. It would also be nice if it would allow forcing it to search specifically for multi segment flights when trying to maximize the number of segments/ miles on a trip like the PC version.

  2. You bought an iPhone months ago? Apple is so 2009… try an Android phone and their apps and you’ll never touch an Apple again. At least you aren’t 2008/Blackberry!
