If you've ever wondered how trustworthy that plane really is, well there's finally an app for that. Am I Going Down answers a very basic question: How likely is your flight to actually go down?

I know that I have a few people in my life who would benefit from an app like this. It doesn't matter how many people tell them that planes are one of the safest way to travel, they'll never believe them.

Am I Going Down manages to say a whole lot more than the bog-standard "planes are safe" answer.

The app actually calculates your odds of "going down." It might sound morbid, but it's actually reassuring.
