I can’t brig a sentence with a digit. Can’t. Consequently, the site Mac Observer has to have a name check in the headline there. It’s as if they knew I’d be quoting them.
The rest of the headline tells you all you need to know except this: the article is US-centric and the route finder they mention, Waze, is less of a big deal in the UK.
Also, I prefer FlightTrack Pro to their plane choice. But I’m in absolute agreement about TripIt. That recently came out in a one-off payment version instead of either free with ads or an annual subscription. I don’t travel enough to make use of the subscription benefits but I do use TripIt more than enough to find the ads a pain.
