Like the concept, but it needs significant work on the interface, which doesn't follow a number of conventions. For example, entering times - one can't enter in 24 hour time (eg 1600 for 4pm), but need to type 4, then tab to 00, then tab to the AM/PM field and then use the mouse to choose am/pm. The date fields are also problematic. You can't type in 3/27 and have it complete it as 3/27/07, you have to type in 3/27/07. It doesn't pre-populate the arrival date, either - you'd think it could figure out that a flight that leaves at 0600 and arrives 1000 was arriving on the same day, just as a flight that leaves at 2300 and arrives 0600 was arriving on the next day.

There are other more problematic issues. I entered a flight a couple of times only to find the data lost when I clicked elsewhere in the window. The interface needs to be more clear on what you need to do to save the record. Hitting 'enter' on the keyboard doesn't save the data entry as it should but instead appears to lose the entry.

Overall a nice concept, and something I'd use (I fly over 100k miles a year and would love a database for my frequent flyer miles - it would be great to have the ability to track FF miles by carrier), but it's not ready yet for prime time.

Actually, you CAN enter 24-hour time. The time preference of 12 or 24 hour time entry and display is selectable in in the iFly>Preferences... menu. Date entry on my computer DOES work with 3/27. When you tab out of the field, the year is entered. If it does not work on your computer according to your localized settings, please file a bug report. As for the arrival date not filling, tabbing out of the flight date field will automatically fill the arrival date field when you have a valid date specified in the flight date field.

For saving a record, there is a Save button in iFly. Hitting enter does not save a record by design. In iFly you need to enter several required fields and explicitly Save the record to prevent the database from filling with incomplete, useless records.

The program calculates kilometers for each route segment. Though many frequent flyer programs use miles, most of us appreciate seeing how many kilometers our segment is.

If you have problems with crashing, please file a bug report with the developer. The program is in beta and we want to make improvements and correct problems as soon as possible. If it crashes on you, what MacOS are you running, how much memory, etc.
