How does Plane Finder work?
Plane Finder receives real time ADS-B and MLAT signals sent by aircraft to transmit their positional data to land based receivers. This technology is faster than traditional radar and is used for air traffic control and navigation. You can check our worldwide flight tracking coverage for free at

Great flight tracking app. Real-time "live" and accurate tracking. I like the map and labeling options. Seems to use less system resources - runs in the background less than others. Very good deal for the year subscription. Extremely friendly and helpful customer support. Of course there are ads in the free version, that's how products work. No ads for pro/paid version. And I saw other reviews stating the presence of ads on their paid version. So I double checked and there definitely are't any.

This "Lite" version is more of an ad delivery system than a trial or representation of what to expect from the paid version. First it starts off on the opposite side of the world, and you have to manually navigate to your current location. I should say attempt to. The app crashes every time you swipe very I cannot try the app in my location. The ads load flawlessy every time though.

Excellent app - the only thing I'd say needs adding is the route each plane will be taking to complete its journey, as it currently only shows the route taken so far. Otherwise excellent.
