Mileways (official site here) is an iPhone app that lets you collect all your airline miles in one place, stay connected with friends while traveling, and track whether a flight is delayed, on time, or canceled.
You can basically put Mileways in two categories. It’s an app that tracks and helps you redeem to your airline miles, regardless of what airline you’ve earned miles on. The Mileways app also aims to help make flying easier by tracking flight info and giving you automated alerts on your flight.
Mileways boasts a really attractive user interface. It’s easy to track your flights, and even easier to get crowd-sourced travel advice about your destination. Want advice about where to eat or the best way to get to the city center? This app can help with that.
Something great about Mileways is how simple the redemption process is. From within the app, you can redeem your miles, making this app a great place to centralize your various airline mile accounts.
One downside to Mileways as it stands now is the fact that you must use your Facebook account to log in. While there are plenty of people who love the ease of a Facebook login, others wish to be more circumspect about the number of apps they link to their Facebook account. It’s a matter of personal preference.
If you want a one-stop shop for all your flying needs, Mileways is an excellent option for tracking miles, checking up on flight details, and even getting some travel tips. If you’re tired of juggling multiple apps to track all your airline data, this is a great app that does the work of several such tools.
Mileways is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
