It stopped working! I loved it when I used it, I got it to work for 1 flight and it helped me with my anxiety a lot. I used the paid version, which was definitely worth it. However, when I tried to use it for another flight it either won't load or gives me an error message. If it worked I would gladly pay to track more flights and update my review to 5 stars. Hope there is a fix for this- when the app works properly it is fantastic!

This app is kind of B.S., I'm glad I only purchased one flight. It claims to use algorithms and calculations to tell you what is going on during the flight, but everything seems to only be on a schedule of when the plane SHOULD be doing certain things. Our flight was slightly delayed due to de-icing and the app thought we had already took off and everything including the route map was completely off the entire flight. The information provided during flight is cool, but not really that useful.

In order to detect take off the app analyzes ambient noises , gyro , accelerometer, baro pressure and gps signal if available . If your device doesn’t have barometer , and there is no gps sygnal , so the takeoff may be detected mistakenly based on pitch change , if you move the device .

Fun app! It's can be little difficult to find your flight to load your flight, especially when flying on Regional Jets (America Eagle). However, one you find your flight and get it to load, it's very informative and fun. Different views, it knew when I had turbulence and when we started our decent. A little pricey, but it's spot on!
