Travelling internationally? The concierge at your hotel in Marrakech might not know if your afternoon flight is delayed, but FlightTrack will. This well-designed $5 app provides real-time information for departures, delays, and cancellations at more than 16,000 airports around the globe. It includes zoomable, live flight-tracker maps, weather forecasts, and even information on alternative flights. FlightTrack's offline mode allows you to view the app's maps even when you're not connected to the Internet, such as when you're cruising at 30,000 feet on a plane without Wi-Fi.

re: 10 Great Summer iPad Apps
Another thing to remember when you are using your iPad for summer activities is that when the heat is out and you are being more active, that protecting your device is really quite important as well. I cannot even tell you how many times I have felt like my device was in danger either because the kids were going wild, the weather changed, or some other unforeseen circumstance arose. All of these apps are great, but I would also enjoy having a device that works. There a few options that I like including a company called Maroo that is all about protecting the device from bumps and bruises. Feel free to check out what I am talking about....
