Awesome Airport Apps You Should Be Using
I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This means part of my makeup is over analyzing and over thinking everything—including when I fly. When I fly everything needs to be in order and I MUST know everything. Airports give me anxiety so if I can know the makeup of the airport, what eateries are available, how long the lines are, etc; then I can function more calmly.
