Latitude Technologies Corporation, a leading provider of satellite-based communication, tracking and on-board aircraft data systems, announced the release of an updated version of their popular Latitude WebSentinel iOS App.
Registered users of Latitudeâ€™s SkyNodeÂ® satcom products who have a WebSentinel service account can now view live and historic flight tracking data, adjust reporting parameters and do two-way text messaging with their SkyNode products using the intuitive interface and high-resolution image quality that AppleÂ® products are known for.
â€œThis updated iOS application is an example of Latitude Technologiesâ€™ commitment to provide our customers with the latest in effective information technologies that link operations and maintenance managers to flight crews and aircraft, no matter where they may be,â€ said Tim Curtis, vice president of information services. â€œSimilar programs are also available for other smartphones and tablet computers, including electronic flight bag (EFB) products.â€
Mikey McBryan is the general manager for Buffalo Airways based in Yellowknife, NWT, Canada. Buffalo Airways, known from the popular reality television series â€œIce Pilots,â€ was the first customer to use the new App.
â€œI love the Latitude Technologies WebSentinel App because the plane information is always in my pocket,â€ said McBryan. â€œWe operate 18 aircraft and fly to the northernmost airport in the world. I began using the App when we were flying aircraft to Turkey. This App makes my life easier.Â Â I have less stress when I am away from the office because I have the convenience of tracking aircraft from anywhere using the App.â€
The App is freely available in the iTunesÂ® App Store and functions on the iPadÂ®, iPhoneÂ®, and iPod TouchÂ® products by AppleÂ®. For users of Latitudeâ€™s existing iOS App, the new version is available as an update.
