Anywhere, anytime flight info with FlightCHECK

A new product has just been launced over at YouTXT – its called FlightCHECK.

Based on the same simple principles of providing useful information quickly and easily through TXT, FlightCHECK is an anytime, anywhere flight checking tool. Giving realtime access to any flight arriving or departing NZ. It can be accessed over at http://flightcheck.co.nz or by SMS/TXT.

The coverage is pretty amazing and you can check any flight nationally or internationally by TXT by simply sending the tail number ie NZ1 to 8808. Within seconds you will get back a message telling you whether the flight is delayed, on-time or cancelled.

This is a brilliant new service that is the first in New Zealand to cover every flight, and every airport. As a product it is available to the public, and also available for liscence to any travel or airline industry organisations that want to personalise and market to their own customer base.

What do you think of this new service? Any ideas to make it better or more useful?

Lotto numbers via SMS/TXT

The API is steadily being used to help generate more automatically updated information.

A great source of information setup over at NZPages was providing access to Lotto and Keno results. Simply send LOTTO or KENO to 8808 and get the lastest draw results.

Whats your Network Status?

Another great use of YouTXT – The New Zealand ISP Supra has got YouTXT’ing, allowing cusotmers to check Supra’s Network Status via TXT.

Users simply have to send ‘SUPRA‘ to 8808 and they will instantly get the network status to their handset! Great idea to increase customer service, and reduce support phone calls using YouTXT! Well done SUPRA!
