Medtravel - Inflighto: l’app definitiva per i passeggeri di aeroplani?

Immagina la scena: sei a bordo di un volo e la vista fuori dal finestrino è stupefacente. Sorvoli montagne imponenti ed infinite distese di deserto. Scatti una foto per Instagram, ma quando si tratta di selezionare un tag posizione, ti rendi conto di non avere idea di dove ti trovi. Ecco dove entra in gioco la nuova app Inflighto. Scaricabile gratis nella sua versione base, l’app utilizza la tecnologia di localizzazione dell’aereo  per mantenere aggiornati i viaggiatori. A differenza delle mappe dei sedili posteriori spesso installate nei sistemi di intrattenimento a bordo, che offrono solo informazioni di base su posizione, velocità e altitudine, Inflighto migliora l’esperienza con un tracciamento preciso, punti di interesse e, nelle versioni premium, informazioni meteo in tempo reale.
