From getting to the airport way too early to trying to cram your carry-on into the little overhead compartment to sitting in the uncomfortable seats, it's incredibly hectic. But those inconveniences pale in comparison to the stress when your flight is running behind schedule or delayed. When going on a trip a few weeks ago, I downloaded the FlightView app to help me track the flights I was taking. The app, which is free to download, gives you all the essentials you need to track your flight.

GRAND FORKS—Most of us want a safe place to store our photos. But in the world of technology, that can sometimes be difficult to find. One tap of a button can delete hundreds of photos off of your phone in an instant. There are several apps on the market that help alleviate this fear, including the new Google Photos app. Google Photos, available for free for Android and Apple devices, gives users unlimited, free storage for pictures and videos. After downloading, the app walks you through all you need to know about the app.
GRAND FORKS, N.D.—Don Henley and the Eagles have spent an entire lifetime in fast lane.

To save the baby pandas, you fire colored bubbles at a grid, trying to find a group of three or more bubbles to pop. The more bubbles that are popped, the more likely it is that you save the babies. Along the way, you get various power-ups that help clear the board faster.
Launched last year, 120 Sports, a digital video sports channel from Time Inc. and Major League Baseball, aimed to be a game-changer in how sports fans consumed information.
