Review of Skyscanner for iOS Devices – Search-Based App to Use to Look for the Cheapest Flights

There was a time when searching for a cheap flight was a tedious process, and any regular traveler or plane commuter could easily relate to these sentiments. Today, anyone voicing out such sentiments will likely be advised to add the Skyscanner app in his or her mobile phone device. It’s a search-based application that provides the most flexible information, about the cheapest airfares being offered by more than 600 airlines. It covers a wide range of flight schedules going to and coming from different locations worldwide, at anytime and on any date. It’s an Apple app which owners of iOS devices running on Versions 5.0 and up, can download and install at no cost at all.

What Can Skyscanner Do?

Skyscanner works like a quick draw travel engine that gives straightforward information about the air flights to any location or destination. If you’re a last minute traveler, you can’t expect airfares to stay the same as they were when you last took the flight. If you’re a plan-ahead air traveler, you go through all the tedious process of researching for the airlines offering the cheapest fares, so you can book a flight based on the date that the lowest-priced flight is available.

In both cases, Skyscanner can make it easier for you, because it allows you to make those last minute, or plan-ahead searches by simply using the app’s wide-ranging search capabilities. You can use the search box  and type-in your travel route and date as reference. If you don’t have a specific flight date, tap on the month and day in which you intend to take the flight. Explore the charts when looking for the cheapest airfares available for your route (point of departure to point of destination.)

The high bars represent the flights with high fares, while the low bars are for the flights with the cheapest fares. Since you’re looking for the most inexpensive flight, tap on the bars with the shorter range as this will come up with search results for the lowest-priced flights you could choose from. Tap on a particular flight and the app will show you the details, such as the flight date as well as the time of departure and arrival. You will be provided with details  for both outbound and return flights. Once you’ve decided on a particular flight schedule, choose the “Book” button and you’ll be able to book the flight with the airlines or a travel agent.

If you’re the kind of traveler who’s planning to travel but with no particular date and place in mind, you can browse through all the flight schedules by using the airport nearest you as your search word. The search results will furnish you with various flight schedules for different countries and the corresponding low-priced airfares. Tap on the country and it will show you the cities to where the cheap flights are bound for. Choose a city so you can get more information regarding the scheduled date and time of departure/arrival for both outbound and return flights. Once you’ve pinned down your choice, tap on the “Book” button.

By having this free Apple app right in your iOS device, looking for the most inexpensive airfares won’t be as tedious and time-consuming as it used to be.
