Hipmunk is a revolutionary application that promises to alter the way people search for flight information in the web. It is the brainchild of Adam Goldstein who used to be a student of MIT engineering and he used his massive industry experience as well as huge network of tech acquaintances to redefine online flight data search. He joined hands with Steve Huffman his old time buddy and started a summer project together. Hipmunk is the result of the project and even though it still has a long way to establish it as a leading application in the segment the initial user feedbacks are quite positive.
As a matter of fact the users find the application very intuitive and it has a no nonsense approach. It displays a colorful and useful grid to display the flight information which makes looking for particular flight information easier. Even the technology review sites have given it their nods. Adam Goldstein said in an interview that he along with his collaborator buddy spent a lot of time in finalizing the interface of the application. He always wanted to develop the application that will enable the users to find information on a flight in the minimum possible time.
The interface the application is clutter free. The cost is shown in the vertical axis of the grid while departure times get displayed on the horizontal axis of the grid. The airlines are displayed in color codes which makes things even simpler for the users.
