I don't have an iPhone, but I can tell you what it can't do. It will NOT get your flight from Chicago to Newark off the ground any sooner. I'm calling bullshit on that one. Newark is my home airport and Chicago is probably the destination to which I fly most often, and when you involve two of the 10 busiest airports in the country, you're not going to be able to go online and look at a Weather.com satellite image and convince anyone that it's OK to release your plane. Since it's a rather short flight -- not even two hours when you're flying east -- it's also an easy one to hold on the ground when air traffic gets backed up or a weather system moves through either area.
Sorry, Apple, you'll have to do better than that one.
