Everyone has a need for information of all types! You may need to catch up on local, regional or world news. You may need to know what the local weather is going to be. You may also need to find out how your stocks or your favorite sports teams are doing! You may be looking for a movie to go see or a TV show that you want to watch from the comfort of your home. IF you’re about to travel to some place in the US there’s even current Airline info available in Pocket Express!
Pocket Express will allow you to access all these different areas of information in this well designed and organized program right in your iPhone/iTouch device!

Page One on the Pocket Express allows you to select from 9 categories of information. There’s also a "share" button to send current information via e-mail to a friend on their hand held device. The "Feedback" button allows you to send questions or suggestions to [email protected]








When you select "News" a page will appear that allows you to select from 5 areas of information on the bottom access bar.












When you choose "Sports" you can catch up on current scores, standings and schedules of your favorite sports teams.












If you choose "Weather" you will be presented with the local reports and can even choose radar readings for up to date weather conditions.

"Finance" will display "Market News" articles about current financial news. You can also access "Business" Financial news or "Hot Stocks" from the access bar at the bottom of the window.

"Entertainment" will display all types of  ShowBiz news . You can select from"Movies", "Music" or "TV" for pertinent information about each area.

There is a "Movies" selection that takes you to an area where you can select movie theaters that are near your current location. They also display details about the movies and even box office totals for popular movies.

A soon to be completed "Travel" selection will supply you with information about your local airports and your favorite carriers. You can examine the area even now with a web based version of travel information including all the airlines available for your travel needs.

"Horoscopes" notes the current Birthdays of famous personalities for today. It also allows you to read your personal horoscope as well.

Finally, there is an "Assist" link to access FAQs, Techical Support and the creators of this program.

Quick Take: Pocket Express is a very well designed and organized "one stop" program that can present you with a wealth of information about many topics of interest to the person on the run. News, Sports, Weather, Finance, Entertainment, Movies and Travel are all available at your fingertips.

Learning Curve: The access bar at the bottom of the window will take the user to every aspect of this program

Who is it for: Any person who needs a wide range of information on a moment’s notice will love this program

What I like: The convenience of having so much current information right in my iPhone/iTouch device.

What I Don’t: There were a few little locations that didn’t have the back to "Page One" button in the upper left of the window. A minor fix that I’m sure they will address soon.

Final Statement: Pocket Express is an extremely well organized source of information for your every need. I can’t imagine anyone who’s busy with daily life and travel not wanting this application in their iPhone/iTouch library.
