Mobiata was founded in 2008 when Founder and GM Ben Kazez had an aha! moment while fumbling for various travel documents in the Minneapolis airport. He realized that there should be a mobile app to handle everything he needed while traveling. He set to work and launched FlightTrack for the iPhone in November 2008 and within days it was the best-selling travel app. FlightTrack has remained one of the top-grossing travel apps to this day. In November 2010, Mobiata was acquired by Expedia, Inc. and now develops Expedia’s mobile apps as well as leads the development and research in all emerging platforms for the company. And we still innovate and iterate on Mobiata apps as well.
