Quick Tip: Load Airline Entertainment Apps Before Flight

Hopping around the Pacific I have been sampling airline entertainment apps.

Some airlines, including Virgin Australia and Aircalin, do not have airline apps in terms of travel functionality, however they do have entertainment apps. Some other world airlines maintain separate travel and entertainment apps.

I have found performance good, with smooth playback. Battery consumption is understandably high. Like built-in entertainment, PA announcements pause the app and can be at deafening levels.

You can find the apps on Apple and Android app stores.

Readers, any airline entertainment apps you like or loathe?
