Keeping the baggage handlers on the tarmac: TSAzr gives you all the TSA info you need for security checkpoints at every airport
If there's one government entity that people love to hate, it's the IRS. Wait. I mean, if there's another government entity that people love to hate, it's the Transportation Security Administration
---affectionately known as the TSA. From travel delays to inappropriate searches to just general ineffectiveness, it seems that everyone has a gripe or two about the people in charge of keeping our airports secure.
Well now---thanks to Vancouver's Elguji Software
---anyone with an iPhone or iPad can record their experience with the TSA, good or bad, and we'll all benefit from the shared reviews. Meet TSAzr
TSA agent get a little fresh? Did you fly through security with a smile on your face? Was refusing a body scan harder than you expected? Let people know.
Put TSAzr (pronounced "TAY-zer") on your iPhone or iPod Touch and join the ongoing debate about the TSA. We built this app to shed some light on what's really going on at our airports. Rate, describe and share your own TSA experience right at the airport after it happened. Post your results on your Facebook wall, and see what others said. See which airports suck the most, and which ones are civilized and treat you with respect. Get instant news and videos about TSA incidents.
[HTML1]But that's not all. TSAzr also gives you informative graphs on things like which airports received the best ratings (WWD, BDL, PDX), which have the most body scans (MSY, JFK, MIA), which have the fewest pat downs (IAH, ARA, ABI), and a bunch more.
If you travel by air at all, TSAzr is totally worth the $0.99 for the information. What's more, it's just damned pretty.
And while you're at it, you can pick up WindowSeat
too. And have a Portland metro area iPhone app laden trip all around.
TSAzr is currently available in the App Store
