What's new in version 7.87
*** Version 7.87 *** (Early August 2022)
* Fixes an issue when sometimes displaying the terminal in the flight details.
* Fixes a display issue in dark mode.
* Other minor bugs.

IMPORTANT: This version (and the previous vesion) supports Time-Sensitive Push Notifications. You need to be using iOS 15, using the iOS 15 Focus feature AND enable this within the Flight Update Pro's Prefs screen. We want to hear if we can do more to better support this feature. At this time if you have Focus enabled, a push notification from Flight Update Pro will "break through" and still alert you. We welcome your thoughts on this. (ie Do you still want a push notification alerting you that your flight will be departing in 8 hours to "break through"?)

Back in April of 2020 we added additional measures to our flight status servers to detect when a flight has been cancelled to give you more advanced notice. Because of the pandemic, flight cancellations have been more frequent and it was clear this addition was necessary.

If you ever have any comments, complaints or compliments, please go into the Prefs screen within the app and tap the "Email the Author" field. You will always get a response in a timely fashion.
