Thanks I got my old app back but I'm also loving the new upgraded version. The new version works great on my phone but needed the the old app on my tablet because it runs more smoothly. Great app. UPDATE:. I don't know what's been going on with the flight server but it's been very erratic the past few days. Also aeronautical charts aren't showing up and I'm logged in. UPDATE: Why do it seem like everything is smaller now including the icons?
Love the app. Great for spotting planes, seeing if someone your picking up from a airport is late or just watch planes via the app (like me). One thing I do have a concern about is if I don't have a compass in my phone (a Moto C) how can I do the AR feature? Also, please make it easier to view planes via the app on terrible weather. Still rating 5 stars but can you make it so a basic user be able to make at least 1 custom alert? I have seen a lot of strange stuff with planes and I haven't been able to post them unless I have silver or gold. Ads don't make it bad so yeah. Thank you for reading if you did. That's all I have.
Update..... although I am disappointed that, with the new version of this app I am required to pay monthly to have it ad free, yet I paid for that privilege previously with a once off fee.. I appreciate the quick response to my feedback and the fact that the old version of the app is still available for me to download. Thankyou for getting back to me so promptly..cheers
I LOVED the previous app... But then they went and changed the business model with this new one. It looks great, sure, but I'm not prepared to pay a subscription. I'd pay another one-off fee for new features but monthly into the future?! Nope, I'm sticking with the old version and the features I paid for on there.
I'm not confident in this app. I get ghosts crafts, showing on app, but nothing flying over and missed crafts, I'm looking at a helicopter at very low altitude about 1/4 mile in front of me, but it does not show on flight radar. When it DOES register crafts accurately or at all, it usually tracks pretty well, But again, it show crafts that aren't there and doesn't show crafts that are.
I discovered Flight Radar 6 years ago, and its the first app I downloaded on every phone I have had since! love it, especially the Gold upgrade. Sometimes aircraft fly backwards when I'm watching the real thing, have wondered about that, but that's not a major issue, but I would like to see the 3d show closer to ground level on approaches. It levels at I estimate around 1000 feet visual. Otherwise I have no real complaints. Excellent app, I have recommended to several people at airport where I work, ( KDFW, and now KDAL),as well as passengers in terminal, even gate and ramp agents! Love it!!!
