  1. Hi, Is the app open source ? I’m new in android programming and use some packages that aren’t practical in real world! So I’m looking for some android codes that be used to covers airport diff services and I need help to teach and use android codes in airport environment.

  2. Hello Mohammad,

    Thanks again for your comments. Your question asks is ‘the’ app open source. But their are five apps reviewed. To which of the five apps are you referring? Let me know and I will see what I can do.

    In the mean time, here is a link or two for open source Android codes…



    also check out InfoQ.com for further insights.

    Best regards,

  3. Hello again,

    And special thanks Mr.Martin for your answer. I think in list of this page’s android apps ,”FRA Airport App” can be practical and useful. Also I was just visit your directed links. The open source apps can be useful, but as I said before It’s very good to find an app that covers airport services virtually that implement in android platform.

    Also in Android market(or “play.google.com”) there are another apps such as “Stansted Airport Ltd” that are very graphical and more-covered services and I think that can be better choice !


  4. Hi Mohammad,

    You are welcome! Thanks for the clarification. Now that my Ginkgo has taken effect, I further conclude that while it is likely that most of these apps will be based on open source code, it is also likely that the code is tweaked enough to render them no longer open source apps.

    Plus, these companies wish to earn money from the sale of them, so they likely won’t want to share their coding. However, most of these are probably small concerns and would be willing to listen to any offers that you might have for them to customize their app to suit your needs.

    Happy flying,

  5. 🙁
    You mean there are no way to recognize some procedures of the apps?

    I was just think that you have access to some of these software. OK,Thanks a lot Mr.Martin.

  6. Hello Mohammad,

    Best thing to try would be to download the apps, get acquainted with their use and contact the vendors.

    I only review them.

    Good luck!
