For kids, parents or keen travellers of any age who like to keep track of their flights and trip information,
there’s now a dedicated iPad app for that. The
Flyers Logbook
replaces the old-fashioned logbook by
keeping a customised, up-to-date record of where you’ve been, hours spent in the air and distance
travelled. In the Trip page, simply record all important flight details, then use the Notes section to add other
memorable information and images. Have fun and enjoy your trip, and then share the record with friends
and family. Versions for iPhone and Android will be released shortly. Find it in the iTunes app store for $8.
