Previously paid for older app plus add ins. Now to get the same I'm expected to pat £40 per year or stick with old never to be updated old app. The new free version gives less detail than the old and if full of adverts and upgrade reminders. Layout is far less intuitive than old version. Very poor way to treat loyal customers, terrible business model and no upgrade path to similar facilities without huge cost. A very bad way to treat customers. A good app has become a money grabbing scandal. There are plenty more of these apps to choose from, i'd rather spend money with another developer than give this cowboy firm any more cash. Only giving one star as cannot give nil stars.
Often sit on my deck eatching planes flying overhead wondering where they're coming from or going to. Now I know exactly their departure and destinations. Awesome app, paid the 10 bucks for the year and get all sorts of flight data, estimated and actual take off times, routes, speed, altitude, age of planes and more. Amd the 3D view is accurate. I'm not an airplane geek, but this is an AWESOME app!
The new version is a complete ripoff I can only agree with all the people who complained about the new fee structure. Why should I have to pay twice and continuously for the features I already bought? As the old version won't get updated anymore letting me keep the old version to enjoy my paid features is a bad joke.
Just purchased this app two months ago and now they decide to "upgrade" to a tiered monthly subscription model. First Mobiata Flightaware app, now Flightradar24. All I want is a simple way to track arriving flights without recurring costs. I guess I'll use the old paid app until they decide to pull the plug just like Mobiata did with Flightaware v4.
The update fixes my only bug bear with this app by bringing the subscription benefits you get online onto your phone. Would like a primary or secondary radar source like the nats airspace explorer to give a truer picture of what's going on in the skies but for anyone with any interest in thr skies, It's a great app
I am pretty disappointed provided that i bought the features and the upgraded to the pro version, they came up a subscription plan for the new app. Yes we can continue using this old app but will it updated with the latest infos, bug fixes and real time data in the future? I am worried that more of the focus will be to the new app. I would appreciate if the developers would give loyal customers who bought all the features a free lifetime for the premium/gold version of the new app.
In this release we have made opening playback links easier. Playback links shared on social media will now take you directly to the playback of a specific flight.
