App in the Air is your personal “Flying Assistant”. It keeps you up-to-date with your flight: real time status, airport tips and in-airport navigation maps, flight profile with all your flights logged. It also keeps track of the loyalty programs: frequent flyer miles amount changes, importing your flight history.
The app works offline (gate changes and flight status updates are delivered via SMS which requires no data roaming). You can even automatically check-in. It also updates you on delays and changes in flight schedule well before you arrive at the airport.
Integration with TripIt helps to import your itinerary and vice versa: smoothly synchronize your itineraries across TripIt and App in the Air. Track your loyalty programs, and get full control of your air travel.
App in the Air is a boon and a must for frequent flyers!

OpenSignal is an award winning app, packed with features to help you accurately measure the everyday experience you receive on your mobile network. It includes download speed, upload speed and latency test, test speeds on cellular or wifi. It also retains a history of speed tests, visualized on a map or list.
The speed test allows you to find out the location at which the signal is strongest, and also compare cellular and wifi speeds. Network availability and speed stats are stored and listed based on your own experience as well as the experiences of others – whether on your own service provider or on other networks.
Coverage maps are available for all operators and zoom in to street level. The coverage maps are based on the signal experienced by users. The data is collected by crowd sourcing and is fairly representative. You could use this information to download maps before visiting areas with weak or no signal.
Overall, a very useful tool to understand your mobile connectivity efficiency.
