The reason it works is because you don't have to do anything at all ever. Just tap the app and there's your flight information. It also picks up info from any email with travel info in it that other people send you and adds that. So your friends are flying in for the weekend and forward you the "woo hoo booked our tickets" email, it adds that, then you know what airline, when it lands, etc for when you gotta run to dia to get them. it's free for the regular version which I use. The pro version tracks and manages all of your frequent flyer miles and rewards.
Thanks for the tip, Kipper. Our company provides the Pro version for free for employees, so I just spent the last 30 minutes getting it set up. Looks really cool.
