Kuwait Aiport website new redesign

The app is working fine now. If you find some problem, please let me know.

So the website is changing their design. So my application will not work anymore. I decided to unpublish my application until I can get the data back from their website.

Basically, they are not doing something big on the arrival and departure page. But unfortunately, the YQL couldn't get the status of each data which I don't know why. So I will need to create a parser by myself to get all the data. It will be much faster, but I am afraid they will noticed that my server taking their bandwidth.

Let me see on 2 or 3 days later. I should put some redesign on my app as well.

Hello to Qatar

After not very good response with Kuwait market, I would like to try another market in the middle east. When looking around the websites from across the gulf countries, I find Qatar Airport website is very good when providing the data.

So based on the Kuwait Airport app, I developed Doha Airport and Qatar Airport. The Doha Airport is paid application for $1 and the free version is Qatar Airport. The free application only allows you to get 20 results without search functionality. While the paid application will give you 60 data with search functionality.

I will wait for about 1 month to see the result. If the result is good enough, I will be happy to create another app for Qatar.
