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

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.

Uninstalled previous version because it was giving incorrect plane info. New version full of intrusive ads. I realise they have to make money which is why I haven't given it fewer stars. But the reality is I've uninstalled it.
