OnTheFly ITA Matrix App Gone?

Hello,

Changed my phone and now the ITA Matrix app is gone and I don't see it in the store - where can I find it to bring it back into my life?

Thank you.

The mobile version is called OnTheFly.

It's available in Google Play and the App Store.

OnTheFly is one word.

Did you try the link I posted to download it in iTunes?

The link is to the US store, it won't work if pduck01 is presently outwith the United States.

On the fly ITA matrix app disappeared?

i travel a lot for business and have used the ITA matrix software on my laptop and the identical iPhone app called On The Fly for years. A couple of weeks ago, my iPhone broke and when I downloaded the backup to my new iPhone the app is gone. Poof. It's not in my purchased list or anywhere. There is an app called on the fly in the App Store but it's totally a different thing and not the ITA matrix software search. I really want this back because it was great to search across airlines and could sort by arrival departure or duration of flights. You couldn't buy flights through it but it was great for knowing what flights are available. It was stripped down with no advertising or sales pitches. Anybody know what happened to this app? Thanks so much.

Is this what you are referring to? I clicked on the App Store link, which opens up iTunes. But then I get the message saying the app is not available. I wonder if Google is only allowing this for Android phones. Or perhaps the iOS app has not been updated and was pulled off the App Store.

Yes this is the app I had. Thank you for your reply. It still works on the full web version but the app seems to have gone. Just the best app ever and a huge time saver for me.

I've had a similar issue with a different app. Now I have to access the webpage on my phone. A bit slower but I can live with it.

Not only does it seem to be gone from at least the US and Canadian App Stores, but if you have the app already installed, it is no longer able to search. All searches come up empty. That make me suspect this is a Google move on their back end, rather than Apple yanking a stale app or similar.

does anyone have a recommendation for a similar app? That will search across airlines, sort by departure parameters, arrival parameters, duration of flight, nearby airports, etc. I especially liked this one because it was simple and fast and free of ads. Most apps I see are geared to cheapest flight which is not my main concern. Time savings is more important usually. Maybe there is another app I just don't know about...

Mine is still working but I can't find it in the App Store any more as well.

I also use the Kayak and Skyscanner apps which both have quite a few sorting and filter options, but of course they're mere metasearch engines.

I take that back. I tried again and searches seem to work. I don't know if the problem was temporary on their side, or a bad search on mine.

I still can't find it in the App Store anymore though.

I use OnTheFly daily so it definitely still works if you have it.

In my experience I have been able to resurrect purchases of no longer available apps by doing the following.

Open the App Store on you iPhone
Select updates
Scroll to the top and select purchases.
Select not on this iPhone.
Scroll down and look for app and download

This has worked for me in the past with things like the FlyerTalk app for example. Otherwise if you have backed up on a computer you should be able to bring it back and you may be able to find it by accessing your previous purchases on the App Store through the web.
