Ben Franklin famously said, “Nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes,” but were he alive today he might have added, “And being delayed out of O’Hare.” Fortunately, just in time for summer travel, FlightCaster wants to get you off the ground.

This free, user-friendly app for iPhone and Blackberry predicts flight delays and helps you adjust your travels accordingly. Rather than just republishing information from airlines or the FAA, FlightCaster lets you know the likelihood of delay using data like the actual status of incoming aircraft, official airline reports, and weather conditions. Being armed with this info can help save you time and headaches, especially if you have to rethink your travel plans.
