If you travel on airlines from time to time or are a frequent traveler you might be interested in this smartphone app from TSA. This app will let you search for items that are allowed to carry onboard an aircraft, as well as items allowed only in your checked bags. The app will also tell you what items are not allowed to bring with you at all.
The app also gives weather reports and app users at airports can report security line wait times. Another feature is the ability to “bookmark” your favorite airports by clicking on the star to the left of the airport name.
For more information about this app and to download it please visit the TSA website.
