“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.”
Tyler created something beautiful, usable and enjoyable for the user, but there was a problem: current boarding passes are printed with thermal printers which means it has its limitations. Also, airline companies are a massive business, so the more they can save the better.
Flight Card was born.
We thought that we could follow Tyler’s idea and totally redesign the boarding pass, but optimized for the iPhone. On this device we don’t have ink or paper constrains and it can be dynamically changed to display the proper and updated information only when needed. After a few months of sketches and mockups Flight Card was born. This application is about user experience and simplicity, and we think there isn’t anything similar on the App Store right now.
We are using the great service provided by Flightstats to be able to track flights all around the world. Of course a high quality service has a cost for us, which means an increased price of the application.
We had fun doing this project, and we already have much more ideas to improve Flight Card. Thanks to all our beta testers and your great support! Check our product page and download!
