eSkyGuide Travel App for iPhone

Featured is the eSkyGuide application from American Express Publishing Company and GoldenWare Travel Technologies LLC. This application is compatible with your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. ( iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later.)

As long as your internet is connected, it will update information on flight schedules, flight status and weather updates everytime you use it. The $4.99 price gives you this access for one whole year, giving reminders when your time is running out so you don’t have to worry about getting stuck without the ability to search flight scheduals when you need it most. You can renew right in the app itself.

This month, June 2010, eSkyGuide is offering an iTunes giftcard giveaway to one follower of their Facebook or Twitter accounts. Rules are posted on Facebook (see link below) and periodically tweeted.

For more information, you can check them out on their Facebook page or go to the eSkyGuide for iPhone site. They also have Twitter.

OK, I have to say it. I LOVE Hootsuite. Talk about a saver of time for multiple accounts and it shows you what you need to see. I highly recommend it to anyone.
