Having information to hand is crucial when travelling, especially in busy centres such as airports, but the good news is that there are lots of apps available to make your transport transition easier, and this week we are looking at one which offers access to free Wi-Fi, savings on food and shopping, and the all important departure and arrival times, and it´s free.
FLIO – The global airport app created by Air Media Services is available to download in the iTunes store and is now live for European airports.
The app boasts instant Wi-Fi, saying that you will never fill out a sign-up form again. Flio saves your details and does it all behind the scenes. It connects you with the official free Wi-Fi and gets you online in seconds.
Discounts you’ll actually use, with huge savings on food and drink and duty-free shopping.
The app also claims to help you find things faster. Need a place to charge your laptop? Something to amuse the kids? The quickest route from bathroom to boarding gate? Flio has the answers, it says.
It is a relatively new app in Europe and so does not have an abundance of reviews yet. It has had good feedback from the other side of the globe though, so it looks positive. It´s certainly worth a try if you´re about to travel, and it´s free so there´s nothing to lose, just make sure you add your review in the app store to help others decide whether it´s useful or not.
