Default Commuter Flight App for Android

Anybody have any recommendations on an Android App that has good flight information? I'm a commuter and frequently used Pocket Express on my Blackberry to find flights/status for getting to work and returning. Now that I have an Andriod I was looking to see if there's a better app (I can't find Pocket Express for Android). Basically I want to be able to type in MCI-ATL and see what my options are on a particular day.

I never saw pocket express before. Thanks for the idea.

I use FlightStats, I can't remember if I had to pay for it, but it was cheap if I did. There are other programs but I haven't used them.

I just downloaded FlightStats and was kinda disappointed. I can't simply ask it to show me all flights on say, September 15 from MCI-ORD. I would have to figure out what the flight number is, then type it in. In other words, it doesn't access a timetable for all airlines. I can however search flights from MCI-ORD within 3 days out. But if I do this I have to input a time range or it'll return nothing. I can't simply see all flights throughout the day.

Pocket Express was awesome for this. I wish it supported Android.

This may be a little different than what you are looking for.. But I found a useful new Android app that just came out that shows all FAA delay programs like ground stops and such. I really like it, I have a heads up if there are delay problems going to a specific airport. Its called "FAA Delay Scanner"

I use www.mobile.passrider.com. It's not an app but this is the mobile version of the website: passrider.com

Works great for me
