iShows Finally Adds a Landscape Mode for both iPad and iPhone Apps

My favorite apps to track TV Shows and Movies are iShows TV and iShows Movies respectively. Although there are several alternatives available out there, I prefer the overall experience that the iShows apps offer and have stuck to them through the years.

After recently adding a new ‘Watch Now!‘ feature to the app that lets you instantly know where a TV show is available for streaming, the developers have now finally added a landscape mode to the app. Yep, the app was only available in a Portrait design before this update, even on iPad. The Landscape view is available both on iPhone and iPad, but I’m sure iPad users will welcome it way more.

iShows TV and iShows Movies are available Free on the App Store, with a $3.99 IAP to unlock premium features.

Mobiata is Sunsetting FlightTrack, The Best Flight Tracking App for iOS

<Sad Trombone>

We have some bad news to report : FlightTrack — the very beloved and probably the best flight-tracking app, is being shut down. Mobiata, the developers who are part of Expedia, will be moving some of FlightTrack’s features to the Expedia app itself.

What does it mean for those of us who use FlightTrack? Well, the app is, as of 16th of February, off the shelves in the App Store and the Google Play Store. From the 1st of March onwards, the supporting servers will be switched off, meaning that the app will no longer get flight updates or flight status notifications after that.

For those customers who have bought the app recently, the developers have outdone themselves with a very commendable gesture:

We do want to honor your recent investments in our apps. From February 22 to March 21, 2017, we are offering users who purchased FlightTrack 5 or FlightBoard after August 1, 2016, a $10 iTunes App Store or Google Play voucher per app (within 5-7 business days).

Detailed instructions on claiming the voucher are available on the website.

We’re really sad to see FlightTrack go. Join us, as we mourn another fantastic app lost to the great CDN in the sky.
