FlightTrack, which has been featured in Apple advertisements for the iPhone, offers frequent travelers the ability to keep tabs on flight itineraries, delays, gate numbers and cancellations. Like all apps, it had to be reprogrammed to work on a BlackBerry.
Mobiata founder Ben Kazez moved his company from Minnesota to Ann
Arbor in early 2009 to take advantage of the software talent
surrounding the University of Michigan.
Kazez and recent U-M grad Jason Bornhorst are also positioning the company to offer apps for the Apple iPad, which will be released next week.
