Summer Travel Series: Great Gear And Apps For The Season!

Summer Travel Series: Airport LifeGreetings fellow iTravelers and iAdveturers! Welcome back to my special Summer Travel series, in which I take a look at great apps and awesome accessories that can make our summertime adventures more convenient and more enjoyable.


Anyone who has done much airline travel -which is most of us, can testify to the fact that it can very easily become quite a stressful experience. Anything to help the process go more smoothly is much appreciated in my book. To that end, I'd like to present to our readers, the helpful new app: Airport Life. This very handy travel assistant is the product of Captain Dan Stratman, and he brings to its development, over 20 years in the industry as an airline pilot.

In preparation for this feature I got a chance to communicate with Captain Stratman. He said, "I have helped many lost, confused, and stressed out passengers during my career. I decided to put all my inside knowledge of the industry into my app in order to make air travel easier for passengers."

We can all be grateful to Captain Stratman for developing this app. With Airport Life on our iPhones we can breathe a collective sigh of relief because, true to its claim, it really is one of the best, most useful airline travel apps out there, and it succeeds in it's goal of making travel less stressful.


With a simple and clean interface, Airport Life puts everything related to airline travel, conveniently at your fingertips. This comprehensive resource alerts you if any of your airline schedules change, helps you find your car in the massive labyrinth that so many airport parking lots have become, informs you of any travel warnings, provides information as to what is and isn't permissible to bring on any given flight and also has a reference as to your rights as a traveler, among many other features.

I'm traveling this evening and I have to say, the Airport Life app makes any airport visits (whether to drop someone off, pick someone up or travel one's self) SOOOO much easier, simpler and convenient. I'm actually looking forward to this trip with Airport Life in pocket!


Airport Life is a free app that includes a few extra perks as in-app purchases. Check it out in the Apple App Store and use it next time you travel. You will be glad you did!


Happy and safe travels to all, and don’t forget to check out our upcoming Summer Travel digital edition of iPhone Life, available very soon in the Apple Newsstand!


As always, thank you for reading!
