If you're looking for an app that tells you what flights are overhead, this might be good. But its limited features, clumsy navigation, and cap of five future flights make this product pretty weak. You can get more than five flights of you pay ..... $20/month! Uh, no. Response: Yes, I know I can delete flight alerts after I'm done with them. But I want to track more than five, and I don't want to pay a ridiculous recurring charge to do so. It's ok, you don't need to provide this. I found a competitor app that does it for free. And for a mere one-time $3.89 charge, I got it without the ads.
App worked great until a week ago. Living on the flight path for TPA, always fun to see who is overhead and when the heavies are landing. Now, when I look at anything specific, it crashes. A map, specific flight, tail, etc. Crashes. Something happened on the back end. Have submitted Pixel Android logs to FlightAware with no response. Will take rating back to a five when it's fixed.
Love this app. I always wondered about those planes flying over, where they're from and going. Now I know! Also tracks flights my friends and family are on so I can pick them up at the airport precisely on time. .
Necessity for any traveler! I couldn't fly without this app. So simple to use and way more informative than the airline. Has helped me numerous times when my flights have been delayed, and the alert feature helps not only me but my family and friends who are meeting me at the airport or just want to track my flight!
Don't bother with the app. FlightAware's website is far more interactive and offers a much richer user experience than the app. The mobile website provides you with more information, laid out in an easier to digest manner. It's as if FlightAware hired an A-level team to do their website, then paid a bunch of low-rate contractors to write an app that scrapes the website for data and then presents a limited set of that data.
Useless Freezes up. Can't log out. Won't show my fights, airports, alerts. Nothing works. Going back to flight radar24. Just as well it's free, that's what it's worth.
