After having tried almost all the others - more than once - I find that this app is the only one that is consistent in its refresh rate and accuracy of aircraft positioning. I use the app, solely for that reason; it is accurate to less than about 60 seconds out. Most of the others I've tried have about a 5-minute lag! Also, it has the most intuitive/thorough interface and it's very clean looking!
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?
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.
Anyone with an interest in aviation will get a kick out of this app. Pluses include smooth scrolling graphics, plenty of icons for everything from ground (chase) vehicles to volcanic activity to the largest passenger jets in the sky. Tracking is pretty cool, especially when you begin to see how airspeed and altitude affect each other. My personal favorite thing about the app is snooping around airports in countries all over the world. You never know what you'll find. Negatives include not enough activation for buying the product, missing flight info for flights you know took place, and the satellite map is several years old. Needs more up to date photos! Overall, flightradar24 is a great and mostly unique program anyone can enjoy.
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.
