Flight Factory gains smart search, single sign-on and more in latest update

Flight Factory, a great app for frequent fliers, has been updated with several new features, including smart airport and airlines search, single sign-on, a redesigned settings page and more. With Flight Factory, you can track flights right from your phone from more than 1,400 airlines at 16,000 different airports around the world. This update brings a number of great features to the app, including a smarter airport and airline search, which now sorts results by popularity, along with a faster app resume. A full list of features in this version include:

  • Smart airline and airport search. Airline and airport search results are now sorted by popularity, so selecting the airline or airport for your next flight will be even faster.
  • Fast app resume. Need to switch apps for a minute? No problem. When you launch Flight Factory again, we'll take you back to where you left off.
  • Single sign-on, for real this time. After signing in one more time after updating to the latest version, you'll no longer need to sign in again.
  • Calendar time zone fix. We double checked our math, and now we'll correctly add flights to your calendar regardless of which time zone you're in or which time zone the flight leaves from.
  • Seems faster. It wouldn't be an app update without the collection of bug fixes and performance improvements you've come to expect.
  • Redesigned settings page. If you've read this far, you'll probably be excited to hear that the settings page got a facelift to make it easier to find all of the app's settings.

You can grab the latest update for Flight Factory from the Windows Store now. For those not already using Flight Factory, you can purchase the app for just $0.99 now.

  • If only all apps came with a comprehensive update log like this.
  • I was hoping the Windows Central community would appreciate the changelog. :-)
  • Turning this app Universal I hope? I was a little dissapointed to see its mobile only.
  • @mymarcio, i wholeheartedly agree!
  • It's funny when I saw the article I had to see the picture more than once to see if I read that correct. First article with a mention in the picture of my Island (Aruba) on it where I live. Surprised!
  • Sweet! I'd love to visit one day.
  • You should it is an amazing island alsways sunny and windy :)
  • Definitely one of my most used travel apps. Sure, Cortana gives some basics, but I need the details in this app.
  • Awesome to hear! Thanks for using the app, Daniel.
  • This sounds awesome! Is this an app for only Windows 10 Mobile, or does this also work for 8.1 too?
  • Works on Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows 10 Mobile!
  • @epaps, that's awesome!
  • Thank you for this, I am grateful and thankful to hear it.
  • Bought it, as i know it will come handy in the future :).
  • Sweet! Thanks for trying it out.
  • Agreed TechFreak1 and who knows what Universal brings in the future. Bought it too.
