Need a quick summer getaway? Hipmunk, created by Alexis Ohanian (co-founder of Reddit), is a new tool for finding cheap flights, pulling data from sites like Orbitz and airline sites. The iPad app shows available flights, ticket prices, and departure times in an easy to read graph. You can even pick flights based on agony—the length of layovers and connecting flights.
