Flight Status is a popular travel app over on the iOS (opens in new tab) and Android (opens in new tab) systems from Touchmeme (opens in new tab) and we're getting word that a Windows Phone version is in the works. According to Touchmeme,
We don't have any more details beyond that. Nothing on features, pricing or appearance for the Windows Phone version. But, if you look at the iPhone version's features and layout, Flight Status doesn't look too shabby.
Flight Status's features over on the iPhone include:
- Check the status of all flights worldwide
- Supports 4300+ Airports and 1200+ Airlines
- Displays Terminal, Gate & Baggage Claim Information
- Provides estimates for Arrival, Takeoff and Landing
- Provides information about Flight Delays & Cancelations
- Searches flights by Flight Number, Route & Airport
- Zoomable Maps for all flights worldwide
- Four Map Style options available to choose from
- Trips module lets you manages your flights
- Live airport temperature and weather forecast information for worldwide airports
- And much, much more
You also have push notifications, sharing options, and calendar sync (hopefully this will carry over to the Windows Phone version).
Our tipster considers Flight Status as the best flight status app and based on the feature set the iOS version holds and the iOS screenshots, we can see the appeal. There wasn't any time frame on when Flight Status might find its way on to the Windows Phone Marketplace but we'll keep an eye out. In the meantime, you can take a peak at the iOS version of Flight Status over at the iTunes Store. (opens in new tab)
Thanks, pr0phecy, for the tip!

No prob George! The app looks (and works) really good and I can't wait for Touchmeme's Flight Status to release for Windows Phone!
The app can all that and is still missing the one crucial feature... Live tiles. Hope they fix that for the WP version :-)
I'm still looking for a good flight tracking app. I'm excited about this app if it truly does everything as described!
I haven't tried Flight Status but FlightAware has come in handy and its free. FlightAware just came available on Windows 8 as well.
If you're in the market for a flight tracking app with live tiles, maybe take a look at FlightPredictor? (full disclosure: I'm the author!) http://m.wpcentral.com/windows-phone-app-review-flightpredictor
