3 apps to make your flight easier

Whether you fly once a week for work or once a year for a vacation, you can bet that all areas of your trip are being monitored by smart phones. While it isn't hard to find an app with your flight info, some apps make the process of flying a lot simpler.

FlightTrack 5

An app for the frequent flyer, FlightTrack 5 monitors thousands of airports, airline and also gets delay information from the Federal Aviation Administration.

If you're connected to in-flight WiFi, you can watch your plane's progress while you're in the air.

When you're back on the ground, the app also has airport terminal maps.

FlightTrack 5 is available for $4.99 from Apple or Android stores.

JustLanded

If you're not the one flying, there's an app for you too.

JustLanded condenses arrival times and gate information into just what you need to pick someone up after their flight. The app even pulls local traffic information telling you when you need to leave for the airport.

JustLanded is available from the Apple store for $1.99.

GateGuru

Lots of apps manager your flight times, but GateGuru aims to also manage your time on land.

Check the weather for where you're landing, confirm terminal and gate information, check out which restaurants will be nearby when you land and even arrange a rental car using the app.

GateGuru is available for free from Apple and Android stores.
