Creepster App Lets You Facebook Stalk Fellow Flight Passengers

This is kind of unsettling. A travel app called Quicklet was updated this week with a new feature that allows social check-in, according to a Huffington Post report.
Available for iOS and Android, the app lets travelers quickly book flights with frequent flyer miles and check-in to their flights all from one place (instead of toggling between different airline apps).
And, you can also look up everyone on the flight.
So, you simply check-in with Facebook, look up everyone on the plane, pick the one with the best profile pic who also shares your love of Marnie the Dog, and go sit by them?
Not without your consent (phew). "Only users who approve the social feature will be presented on the flight," a spokesperson for Quicklet told the Huffington Post in an email. In short, you have to check in on the flight, which you can do with or without sharing your name, or you can opt to share your Facebook. Because you love meeting new people while trapped in a metal tube hurtling hundreds of miles per hour in the sky.
We'd maybe be into if it was the Hello Kitty plane. Maybe. (The Huffington Post)
