Mobiata introduces mobile app that mimics airport flight boards
Ann Arbor software startup Mobiata is introducing a new mobile application that allows travelers to instantly view the flight boards at 4,000 airports and 1,400 airlines throughout the world.
Mobiata said the new application, called FlightBoard, costs $3.99 and is available starting today on Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The company expects to develop the app for other mobile devices, as well.

Mobiata, the region’s largest company focusing exclusively on mobile software, recently signed a lease for office space on the second floor of Ann Arbor shopping corridor Nickels Arcade. The firm, moved from Minnesota to Ann Arbor in early 2009, expects to have nearly 20 employees by the end of the year, though some are located outside of Michigan.
The firm’s popular FlightTrack application, which allows travelers to keep tabs on flight status, helped the firm top $1 million in 2009.
Kazez, who founded the company, was recently nominated as one of Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s top 25 “best young entrepreneurs” of the year.
