TURBCAST // iOS // $ 2.29

TekSavvy Insider - - Mobile Apps -

Fly­ing is great, but there are plenty of folks out there who aren’t par­tic­u­larly fond of the idea of hurtling through the air in a pres­sur­ized metal con­tainer. One of the big­gest wor­ries for th­ese trav­ellers tends to be tur­bu­lence, but with Turbcast, it’s pos­si­ble to pre­pare your­self ahead of time. The app helps re­lax pas­sen­gers ahead of their flights by ex­plain­ing the ins and outs of tur­bu­lence in a bid to help them to, even par­tially, over­come their fears. It uses an as­sort­ment of Neuro Lin­guis­tic Pro­gram­ming tech­niques to work with you to min­i­mize stress lev­els and make your flights at least a lit­tle more en­joy­able. The sec­ond part of the app, and for my money the most in­ter­est­ing part, is the fact that Turbcast taps into an as­sort­ment of avi­a­tion re­sources to of­fer tur­bu­lence fore­casts tai­lored to your flight. By pulling in all the most up to date news and weather fore­casts avail­able to pi­lot, the app is able to give you a full and frank break­down of any tur­bu­lence you can ex­pect on your flight, how se­vere it’s likely to be, and how long it’ll last.
