Airline Seat Guide (CNET 100: iPhone Apps)
If you're like me and you're picky about your airline seat, Airline Seat Guide is a good substitute to Web sites like Seatguru.com. It displays full seating maps for aircraft from most major U.S. and foreign airlines with a color code--green is good, yellow is average, red is bad--for finding the best place for your behind. You'll see the leg room (aka pitch) and width of each seat class, and some entries even tell you which rows are missing a window (a particular pet peeve of mine).
Unfortunately, Airline Seat Guide doesn't tell you why a particular seat is bad; you just know that it is. Also, the type of information displayed isn't consistent. But even so, the range of covered aircraft is pretty extensive and I like that the data for the most popular aircraft and airlines is stored directly on the phone. For the less common entries, however, you'll need an Internet connection.
