Outstanding potential, but needs more...

:
Although there's been much fanfare on the web to promote an app as needed as this one (which really requires pushing to be effective), the product itself still falls short.

I was disappointed to find:
1) I cannot set a paramater/amount that will trigger the push notification to let me know that airfare has been found that has fallen BELOW my defined price.
2) Other than dates to travel, I cannot set other flight parameters beforehand (including the especially important Non-stop/1-stop/etc). A $500 flight to Mexico with 2 stops and 2 days worth of layover? I don't want to be notified of that, thanks.

Right now, this app makes me feel like it's an excuse to see Orbitz's name. I'll follow it but won't be using it at this time.

0/5 stars

Worthless

:
Displays the airfares "published" by the airlines themselves and portends to show availability of the selected dates; however, when the fare returns, rarely is it even remotely close to the initial quote. It uses Orbitz to farm the availability, which leaves me wondering if the app provides some type of click-referral revenue to the author? The only two airfare/travel apps I've seen that are worthwhile are Kayak and a relatively new one from ITA (now owned by Google.)

2/5 stars

Not very useful

:
Couldn't look up fares to/from smaller airports, and the prices were completely misleading, starting out low and going up as you book them.

Also, the booking process simply loads up Orbitz in a web view. Very unenjoyable experience overall.
