7.6 app additions
- Airport Maps. This is a long requested feature from almost every traveler we’ve talked to. We’re proud to include links to Google Maps for every airport that we have listed. You can now zoom into your location, see stores around you, and if you have location-awareness turned on, you can see directly where you are on the map.
- Specific locations. What we learned is from users is knowing that Butter London in SEA was in Concourse C didn’t help them much – they wanted to know where in Concourse C. With that, we’ve added specific locations you know exactly where – near Gate C3! We’re working on adding to our over 150 airports – we’re at 1000 and counting.
- Going international! With the growing coverage and requests from users, we couldn’t wait any longer to open up flightSpeak to our international users. We’d like to give a warm welcome to our 18 newest international additions: Brazil (GRU), Canada (YEG, YUL, YVR, YYC, YYZ), China (CAN), France (CDG), India (DEL), Japan (HND), Singapore (SIN), Taiwan (KHH,TPE,TSA), Thailand (BKK), Turkey (IST), UAE (DXB), and the UK (LHR).
7.6 app improvements
- Faster, faster, FASTER. We heard time and time again that previous versions of the app were just too slow. In addition – our users were in a state of stress and constant movement, so waiting for app features to load was completely unacceptable. Our engineering team took the feedback to heart and doubled down on improving the performance of the application. Airport lists, store listings, stories and sightings all load over 10x faster than previous builds. We’re delighted about this development!
