Tech For Life: More apps and gear for air travelers

We're still stuck at the airport, but not to worry -- we've got the right apps and accessories on hand

We're still at the airport, and as pleasant as the confines of Mineta San Jose International Airport may be, it's no fun waiting around for a delayed flight. In this episode of Tech For Life, we'll look at even more apps and gear aimed at air travelers, with an eye toward staying on top of those inevitable flight delays.

Frequent travelers need a good flight-tracking app to keep tabs on departures, arrivals and delays. We like FlightTrack Pro, available on both iOS and Android platforms, for its extensive features. If you find yourself with more time than you expected before a flight, an Android/iOS app like iFly Pro can help you find your way around the terminal with guides for more than 700 airports. (Since we're at San Jose's airport, we also take a look at FlySmart, a free download for Android, Blackberry, and iOS with airport-specific info.)

The gear we look at in this episode includes Incipio's iPad Kickstand, an iPad case that allows for hands-free viewing of your own in-flight entertainment, and HyperJuice Plug, an external battery that can keep you powered up on cross-country flights.

Our thanks again to Mineta San Jose International Airport for giving us a place to put these apps and accessories to the test.
