v7.8.7 - The very last & most amazing update there will ever be!
With our latest update to v7.8.7, we’re now wrapping things up, as this will be the last update to Flying before we will start to close up shop and go out of business. Read here why this is happening and what will happen to your data. Many thanks to our families, friends, fans and co-pilots during our journey!
From now on, you will no longer be able to add new flights as we need to shut down our Data API. Unfortunately, flight-updates will also no longer be supported.
This is all very sad, but hey, we have some final first-class features for you within our very, very last release to land this plane with some jet-set style:
New Distance Pack
We added new interactive animations to the Leaderboard, and then moved the Leaderboard from the “Stream” to the “Lounge” section to combine it with the “Distance to the Moon” visualization as a pack. We also added a map to this pack. With all your flights plotted in semi-transparent paths, you can now visualize how far you’ve made it globally. The darker the path, the more you have flown this route!
Test Pilot Stamp!
We are giving away a very last stamp to say thank you to all our users for using Flying in the last months. Flying with you has been a blast, we have received so much great and helpful feedback from all of you!! :-)
For us, this startup-flight with Flying has been an amazing experience over the last 2 years. We had big dreams, worked hard and had a lot of fun in the process. Therefore, we have named this last update “Dreamliner.” Keep flying and never stop dreaming about a better air travel experience!
As we drink a glass of Vodka-Champagne, we now say cheers, good-bye & good Luck!
