I love this app.
About 13 years ago or so, my flight from PIT-STL was cancelled due to mechanical issues. I got on FlightAware and found another flight from PIT-CLT-STL and told the gate agent about it. She found it and I was the only one that was added on that flight in the early AM and everyone else had to go later in the PM. Saved me like 12 hours.

I love the FlightAware app. It provides information about the inbound flight, gate changes, delays, and cancellations before the gate agent or airline app does. I was waiting for a flight during the winter at DEN when the agent announced the flight would be delayed about a half-hour. I looked at the inbound flight and it was still sitting at a gate 5 hours away. I called the airline and changed to the next flight out before any other waiting passengers knew what was going on. I also use the ATCLive app. The two of these provide great situational awareness especially at DEN during the winter.

Great app, I use it to research aircraft I'm considering buying, or previous owner registration. Very useful tool(s) to assist in so many ways.
