Default [App][10/Jan/10][v1.1] SpoonUKFlights - Flight arrival and departure application

SpoonUKFlights - Flight arrival and departure application

Introduction
This is a lightweight application which downloads flight data from BAA's websites. Arrival and Departure information is available for the following UK airports:

England:
  • London Heathrow
  • London Gatwick
  • London Stanstead
  • Southampton
Scotland:
  • Aberdeen
  • Edinburgh
  • Glasgow
Features
  • Full arrival and departure information. Including time, code, location and status
  • Colour coded flight status entries
  • Finger friendly controls
  • Two touch Airport selection
  • Minute-by-minute automatic refresh option
Version History
v1.0 02/01/10
Initial release

v1.10 10/01/10
Added: Icon, thanks to Artua.com
Added: IATA codes to list
Fix: Cancelling airport selection does not cause download
Fix: Does not load Stansted at initial startup
Internal refactor: Support for non-BAA airports (not yet coded)
Side-effect: Unsorted airports due to missing comparer interface

note:I update little and often. dont be surprised if I update a lot, then go quiet!

Requirements
* Windows Mobile 6 or higher. (Developed on 6.1)
* Needs .NET Compact Framework 3.5+.
* Untested on Windows Mobile Standard.

Donations are gladly accepted. Thanks!

Nice, thanks DotNetCoder....
....What are your plans for epanding the app to include other UK or indeed worldwide airports? I mainly fly to Cork, my point here is that the app is only useful on one leg of my journey.

Default US Flights and HD2

Just installed it and tried it briefly, lovely app.

I couldn't seem to find any US flights on it (or is it just me being blind)

Also, I've installed it on the HD2, but can't get the application back after awakening the phone. I have to end task in task manager and re-start it.

Any clues?

Great wee app, especially as i have some flying to do in the next little while. Two thoughts, can you give it a pretty icon, i just get the standard white exe icon.

Also another request for additional airports, the two Belfast ones would be really useful for me.

Thanks for the feedback guys and gals.

I originally only intended this for UK BAA airports, as they use the same code.. but after looking at some of the other suggested airports - they shouldn't be too hard to add.

There's lots of places, so I will focus on UK and Ireland international airports, then move onto the US, and then back to Europe.

This project could be quite lengthy - if any other VB.NET coders are reading this and want to help me write HTML parsers that would be v cool. Get in touch via PM if you can (of does anyone know of RSS feeds for this data?).

Before I release any more airports, I'll fix the update code - at the moment it locks out the GUI when refreshing, this will move into the background.

A globe icon has been added, so no nasty white spaces in the next version!
