TSA App tries to ease air travel pain

NEW YORK (AP) - November 23, 2010

Called My TSA, short for Transportation Security Administration, the free app lets users fill in the blank to ask if they can bring various objects through the airport security checkpoint.

The app also lists wait times for security lines for U.S. airports, as submitted by users, shown either as a map or a list. Users can also search for specific airports.

A recent check for "pie" yielded five results, showing that under the TSA's rules solid pies can be either checked or carried on, though they may be subject to additional screening. "Turkey" was not found.
