HOW IT WORKS Most aircraft today are equipped with ADS-B transponders that transmit positional data. Flightradar24 has a rapidly growing network of 20,000 ground stations to receive this data that then shows up as aircraft moving on a map in the app. In an expanding number of regions, with the help of multilateration, we’re able to calculate the positions of aircraft that don’t have ADS-B transponders. Coverage is subject to change at any time. CONNECT WITH FLIGHTRADAR24 We love getting feedback on FR24.

I just found this app on TikTok
Lacks a large percentage of planes
by KJ235 on 2021/12/02 19:37
I fly a drone for surveying purposes and need to know what’s flying in the area. Flightradar 24 shows about 50% of the planes and helicopters that come through an area where I am flying drone.Some of the smaller planes and helicopters are flying at low a GL and I get no information on them from flightradar 24
Great, but room for improvement!
by Someone247536 on 2021/11/28 18:54
This app sometimes fails to find registration and correct aircraft type for aircraft without a flight plan, while the ADS-B Exchange almost always has it. Otherwise, the app has a few bugs here and there but overall it’s well designed and could easily be THE best flight tracking app out there!
love this app
by toastedmarshmallow969 on 2021/11/28 05:57
i downloaded this app a couple months ago and im obsessed with it. it’s super cool lol
Ugly but Great
by ARS01 on 2021/11/26 22:57
Many cool features not found elsewhere. I would give it 5 stars when they correct an annoying defect - the planes are often miles off course offering erratic flight paths making it at times very inaccurate. Planes often fly sideways! Backwards, side to side! This is obviously a programming error. Other sites have tracking right so it can be done. For what I am paying, I am very disappointed.
Best app
by Prekwent plyer on 2021/11/25 05:20
I am greatly satisfied with this highly accurate tracking app. Being a premium subscriber, I am absolutely happy with no pop up advertisement intrusion.

by Rvhyhhf on 2021/11/17 05:00
Outstanding app and overall functionality.
Not so good anymore
by TerminalWX on 2021/11/14 14:28
Intrusive pop-up ads and the crippling of formally included features, a disappointing experience. Banner ads acceptable. When I am able to use the app it seems to work smoothly, does a fair job of reporting aircraft location, the graphics are nice.
What happened?
by Radar O'Reiley on 2021/11/13 23:40
I’m a PREMIUM member and since mid-October 2021, helicopters and a lot of nearby flights at an airport near me have gone “invisible.” I did nothing to change settings during any update and now, some aircraft just don’t show up like they did. I can see helicopters on two of my other flight apps but can’t when I’m using FlightRadar24.
Phenomenal
by Testing Gameplay on 2021/11/07 01:34
This app is great it's so cool to see what planes are flying at first I didn't know if it was real but now I go past my local airport KSAN and look on the app and see a Southwest landing so I look on the app and it's there, IMO anyone who is into planes should get this
Apple store policy violation
by 78954eye on 2021/11/05 12:05
Bought the app years ago and just started using it again but now it’s subscription based? Can I get the app I paid for back?
Does not work
by Tyler Andersen on 2021/11/04 04:38
AR mode does not work like the old version of the app.
Keep going
by baseballboi4465 on 2021/11/04 00:52
Heads up I’m an airplane enthusiast. I love this app so dam much and I use it just about every weekend. I go to my nearest plane spotting location and use this app to see the planes on final approach and the ones on that taxiway too. This app is basically what makes plane spotting enjoyable. I do have some complaints though. For some reason there is this glitch where when a plane lands on this app, occasionally it will keep going beyond the runway even though the plane is safe in real life. It’s not that big of a deal, but I do find it kinda annoying when you are trying to find realism in the app. I also think that the prices for the memberships are reasonable, but it would be really awesome if it were a bit lower. But overall this is a great app and I totally recommend it to just about anyone who has somewhat of an interest in planes. I use it to watch my relatives fly out over the radar and like to think about what they are doing on the flight. I would love to see at least one more perk added to the basic membership just to make things better. But yes I love just about everything about this app.
Why
by Teeeeeed off on 2021/10/30 17:34
Why am I interrupted with ads after paying for this app 4 years ago? Can I get my money back?
Planes
by ganajdgve on 2021/10/23 21:26
You guys need to add more planes for filters
iPad Pro performance is abysmal
by Keltonhalbert on 2021/10/22 19:00
When looking at the whole continental US, the map is basically unusable, slow, and glitchy.
Horrible app
by tc101899 on 2021/10/21 16:34
Does absolutely nothing. Gives no information other than what you already know.
Like this one A LOT
by Nomoretryz on 2021/10/21 16:17
BUT: the ads are long, there’s a Heavy Plane over head that I can hear (because I’m hard of hearing) but cannot locate and don’t see it on the screen because the Ad is still running and the X to stop it is Camouflaged not to be found.
If you are interested in this app, just get it.
by Aviris on 2021/10/19 22:23
What’s not to like? I have no reason to have this app other than curiosity. I liked the first version and this is better. More than most apps I get the need for a subscription model since it is providing an information service that requires constant attention. And what great information. The UI is pretty straightforward considering all the data it is possible to view. Like airplanes? Enough to want to track them, identify any you happen to see flying by? Get the app already.
Stupid
by LOLGEVOS on 2021/10/16 20:50
You want to show me ads? Fine. But this app shows me ads as I’m searching for information. If I’m searching for the information then that means I need it now. Why not show me ads after I’ve had a few seconds to view the information I’m looking for? I’m fine with seeing ads to maintain a free experience, but showing them while I am searching for information is infuriating. Blah blah blah “we offer a subscription” blah blah blah. And I’m offering this one star review.

by Entrprise sh on 2021/10/10 11:39
I track where the NASA and ESA planes arrive to give a heads up to the teams working on the Spacship. I love the fact it shows an actual photo of the old s Shuttle runway. We track flights out of Patrick AFB also. This is a wonderful app!

Adds for a paid app?
by AussieTechnoGuru on 2021/10/02 22:26
Its a decent app but not good when you pay for the upgrade a few years ago and over time features change and diminish and now adds start to appear. Let me guess I need to buy it again?
This app is the best
by ddejjcfjvfkcdkce on 2021/10/02 14:47
A pilot needs this app and don’t listen to the people that say it’s bad because It amazing
Superb app
by Saint Head on 2021/09/29 21:55
This app really blew me away in terms of features and intuitive interface. Definitely recommend!
Great app for ADHD people like me who love aviation 😆
by DiamondGirl💎💩😎 on 2021/09/26 16:44
Okay, so this review may not be entirely what it’s meant to be for, but I get bored often and get easily distracted. Whenever I hear a plane or helicopter or something I literally drop everything to look where it is, and then proceed to find it on the map being the nerd I am. I personally only use it for looking at planes, so I don’t really have a use for the subscription, so I cant say much on it. I often find myself staring at this app very frequently, the most I have ever is 27 minutes, haha. It’s a great app, highly recommend especially for people like me😁
Wft
by pilotpal2 on 2021/09/26 14:41
This app used to work well. Now it does not track my airplane at all! I paid for the upgrades got nothing. N2446k does not show up nor does other ga aircraft why When trying to access says my email is not valid but it is contacting owner of app difficult!
Continues to deliver
by swilmerct on 2021/09/22 14:27
I have sat on my deck in Connecticut and on Prince Edward Island, Canada enjoying being able to identify planes as they go by. This often opens a discussion of travels to far away destinations. Love this app.
iOS15’s dark-mode map support needed
by Asteras.g on 2021/09/22 12:20
It’s the best app of its kind. I just would like developers to bring to the iOS app as much love as they bring it to the Android app. Adding dark-mode maps that are now available on Apple Maps system-wide, would be a nice step towards it.
Strange
by Uhgffgkkhfsdfhjkkbvfd on 2021/09/21 14:50
This App will work one time and doesn’t respond the other time , what’s wrong ? Can’t figure it out
Love this app!!
by Ksjdjsjjsjxjckckdks on 2021/09/20 08:22
I know nothing about planes but I love sitting outside at night and watching them fly over. With this app it’s so interesting knowing where they’re going as you watch them. It’s so accurate!
Not accurate at all
by That guy113425673 on 2021/09/20 01:37
Don’t download this app. It’s glitching, inaccurate and the play back feature is a joke! I can see in real time aircraft with a blocked registration on the app and over head… check the play back feature and it shows nothing… shady app
Always malfunctions…
by O-6JA on 2021/09/18 16:25
I’m paying for a GOLD Level subscription on a new iPhone (12 Pro Max) with plenty of memory and no other malfunctions - and it never gives me access to the Gold level features. Very irritating.

Truly a great app for plane spotting
by nicnname 1004995773 on 2021/09/14 00:40
Truly a great app. The data is live, I can look outside my house and see a plane and bring up the app and it’s right there with a full id and destination. I can see which way traffic at ORD is flowing and there’s just something very pleasant about knowing exactly what plane is flying over head. It may sound odd but to a plane spotter it makes perfect sense.
Obnoxious adverts
by cjdjdjfr on 2021/09/13 10:46
Advertising is one thing. Pestering, obnoxious ones are another.
Can’t close ads
by zzzzzz3425rz123 on 2021/09/11 03:50
Can’t close full screen ads. You have to quit the app.
FILTERS
by SSTconcorde on 2021/09/09 02:51
Please fix the filter for saved airplane filters, when applied nothing changes. Thank you , a great App!
Great but has one problem
by Sevyn13 on 2021/09/01 14:11
When you are in the main screen you can choose the type of map you want to see, such as road, terrain, or hybrid. But when you select an aircraft and do a playback of its previous flights the only map type that shows is terrain with no city names and is practically useless. When I’m trying to find out where my aircraft has flown, being able to see cities, borders and roads and their names would be helpful. Please add this feature and I’ll give 5 stars till then you only get two. Any update on this? Seems a very easy fix to add this in. Technically you aren’t even adding another map, you are just making it available when on the flight play back screen. I’m considering canceling my subscription over this and finding another app that does what I need.
Fix iPad version please!!
by Orldad1996 on 2021/09/01 13:37
For several months now the iPad version has not worked AT ALL! I’m a gold subscriber and prefer iPad over iPhone. Literally does not work, once you open the app and immediately crashes.
Very undependable
by MaineCapt on 2021/08/31 11:40
So often I check for a specific N-number and Flightradar24 comes back with “no flights found” then I go to FlightAware and all the flights for that N-number pop right up. I have canceled my GOLD subscription for this reason.
Good app but,
by 2K6GTO on 2021/08/25 13:56
Paid for this app a couple of years ago to get rid of the adds. Now they’ve upgraded the base app to include adds again. They want annual subscriptions, fine because they include extras. I just want my base app back with no adds. Wish I’d never of updated.
Great app
by howndi on 2021/08/22 23:52
I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Big help during fire season. I live in the typical flight path from the local airport. When I hear the planes overhead I can open the app and get the approximate location of the fire. Thanks to all the fire fighters, aircraft, etc trying to contain the fires keep up the fight.
Visibility settings
by Miser 321 on 2021/08/22 17:54
What is the story. Each time I open the app it says “filters and visibility settings are disabled”. Do we need an update or something to clear that up ?
Business ethics
by Mferjones on 2021/08/21 03:40
Paid money for this app years ago…now I get to enjoy their adds! It’s a great app but the business ethics are questionable….refund??
Great paid app BUT also has ads
by Brian31714 on 2021/08/18 18:47
Not sure how you get away with pushing ads all the time and charging for this app.
Love this app
by orelakeriviera on 2021/08/18 15:33
I use it daily just to see what’s coming over the house. It’s so fun.
Doesn’t show airplanes.
by Ebiquitous on 2021/08/16 02:59
Perhaps I selected a setting somewhere that caused airplanes to stop showing up. I can see them and hear them, but they don’t appear on my iPhone screen. Before the planes vanished, it was an enjoyable and utilitarian app.
Frustrating!
by miotio on 2021/08/14 07:16
I love flightradar24 but it takes FOREVER for the maps to appear! It’s not unusual for it to take 30 to 60 seconds of looking at the grid before the map finally fills in. With every other app and website that I frequent that utilize maps the maps appear instantaneously. Hopefully this frustrating issue is being addressed.
App freezes
by energy4us on 2021/08/13 15:23
I am encountering an issue every time I open the app in IPad Pro 14.7.1 First app works very slowly. Cursor or touch then freeze until the app and entire IPad crashes. Once it's crashed none of the controls on the iPads work any longer. 4-5 minutes later, and repeated side button pushes, it resets to Home Screen. Apart from that app would be very good.
Great World Traveling Companion!
by Scott Pulliam on 2021/08/11 16:03
I have lived in 3 different countries and flown many flights. This app has always been fun to use and useful at times. But ever since the pandemic it’s been incredibly helpful! I’ve used it to check out airports and different airlines and routes to see how often they’ve been cancelling flights, and using the data to make more sure fire decisions on who to fly with and which route to take to elevate risk of cancelled flights.
Helicopters? Edit
by sneak__e on 2021/08/11 08:43
Correct me if I’m wrong , but I could have sworn this app also tracked helicopters. What happened? Edit 8/11: After reaching out to the developers they did assure and explained to me that helicopters are still indeed shown on the app.

by Jacques ❤️ on 2021/08/05 22:30
Ever since they killed the old app, I’m back to what is essentially a ‘free’ version with ads. I PAID to get rid of these, and then you just changed the app? This is NOT customer friendly at all, and it feels like a rip-off to me 😡 The app itself should get a 5-star review, but given the bad customer handling, I’m at 1 ...

AR BEEN BROKEN FOR YEAR PLUS
by OwlSeeing on 2021/07/31 04:49
AR has been broken (showing the windows with plane info popping up in top left corner barely showing just a sliver of the window cant quite click it) been like this ever since i first downloaded it for iphone 6splus n now on my iphone 11 pro max and both ipad 7(i think ) n ipad 12.9 newest. So more than a year most likely 2 or three years i noticed it. Been paying for this app yearly for awhile n just kept assuming itd be fixed but never did so i might look elsewhere to see if i can get full years worth of advertised features somewhere else....still no response on this more than 2 year long issue andi notice handful of others saying same thing.... this will be my final subscription, i have waited long enough. 3 plus years gold member user (on diff icloud accounts at one time i had two gold memberships year long on 2 diff iclouds.. but 3 plus years for me using..yes i am a sucker lol )
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
by nah gjeshejdhwud on 2021/07/21 16:37

by AllSystemsNoooooo on 2021/07/21 16:05
The most recent update has screwed things up majorly! I can’t pull up any radar of any planes. Just a map with airports but no planes. I’m paying $5 a month for this blank map? Fix this ASAP please!

AT THIS CURRENT UPDATE... no planes are showing up....
Dishonest
by Star czar on 2021/07/18 16:05
Firstly, this is a great app! The problem is with the developers/ Sales people. I had it, free, then I bought it to get all the extra perks and I used it once or twice and next thing it is cancelled and you have to get the new one. This is a dishonest ploy to take a person’s money for the same thing with some improvements that should have just been offered in an update. Very disappointing.
Inaccurate aircraft descriptions
by Sandmanpatt on 2021/07/17 19:15
I like searching for any old war birds flying around. Today, I clicked on an icon of a small aircraft and the description said Cessna 172…the picture of it, an F4Phantom. Yesterday, I happened to find a Submarine Spitfire, bouncing between 48k and 50k feet altitude…couldn’t make up it mind. Sometimes whiles watching the screen, some aircraft go wiggy, the suddenly deviate from their path, twist, and turn a different heading.
First and one of the best apps I’ve used
by Deviledegg22 on 2021/07/15 11:30
This was the first radar app I downloaded. Subscriptions I can’t stand (normally) but I’ve been using Flightradar24 for a couple years now. This is one app that I’ll pay for yearly. It’s worth the money and is great for my photography and plane spotting.
Ads make me grumpy
by Samiboarder on 2021/07/15 05:22
As a paying customer for the past few years, I don’t understand the switch to extremely annoying full page ads that interrupt what you are doing! Mayyybe a banner ad could be excusable, but this latest update is awful. Please reconsider this change or else I will have to reconsider using the app. Other than that, this app has been very nice to use and packed full of features. *update* The previously mentioned changes were removed soon after so I am back to being happy with the experience. Thank you to the development team for listening.
Get this app now!!!
by foxyt10 on 2021/07/15 01:48
It’s a great app when you have the upgrade. If you don’t have the upgrade it has random ads and when you try to tap on something you end up on a website. We use this app to see where the fire planes are going. Supper easy to use!
Ads are intrusive
by Bswartz95 on 2021/07/14 13:32
I don’t mind seeing some ads (banners), but these ads are obnoxious. Full screen ads that don’t go away - missing what you opened the app to watch on the first place.

Unreliable
by cornboy08 on 2021/07/05 18:46
So many times this has screwed me over when I wanted to go spotting. It will show as canceled but then as I disappointingly drive by the airport I see it pushing back. And just this day it showed that one as departing at 2:59, but then I see it’s departed 20 minutes early! And with no update from the app. Also the adds are unbearable. I’d just like it to be a bit more easier and reliable.
Targeted Ads can’t opt out
by Kirdetzoff on 2021/07/04 13:24
Not acceptable in 2021!
Awesome app! UPDATE- New glitch though! App “forgets” I have a subscription?
by QueenoftheBigBlue on 2021/06/29 07:21
I’ve been using this app for almost three years in my plane spotting hobby, and it truly is unparalleled. Hands down the best out there! However lately, although I have a Silver subscription, sometimes, when I open the app and tap a plane for details, I see ads- I shouldn’t since I have a sub. Is this a glitch? It’s as though the app “forgets” I have a subscription- I go into the app and see ads when I tap a plane. The sub symbol will be white, not gold as it should be. Again, I have an active sub, paid till next year, so why is that happening? Great app though! ✈️🛩
Logged Out Constantly
by ef724 on 2021/06/29 03:04
I’ve been a FR24 user for years and pay for the gold subscription. I now get logged out and burdened with ads every time I open the app after the latest update. Horrible.
Ads
by Boeing0727 on 2021/06/29 01:42
Why am I getting ads when I pay for premium ? Developer I need a response ?
Ads Reappeared Despite Subscription
by Li'l Boss on 2021/06/28 22:33
I have used this excellent app for a long time now. I paid for a Gold Subscription that is good through the end of the year. Today…suddenly…useless Google ads began to appear in a bar across the top of the screen. I can’t get rid of them! What is up with this?
Restore my purchase
by ericsas on 2021/06/28 18:49
I purchased the gold pkg and used it for less than a month. Now it is asking me to “upgrade to gold”And theimage is now static. The biggest problem with this app is that there is no way to communicate with the developers.
Why am I now getting ads?
by SimonNS1 on 2021/06/28 14:32
Have been a huge fan of the site for years (5 stars) but today, I’m now seeing ads despite paying the Gold subscription. Please don’t do this: I’d rather pay a little more every month than have the screen cluttered.
Fun App
by Danny1978d on 2021/06/28 07:05
Love this app. Makes me use my imagination to travel to different places around the world. It would awesome if you can add radio traffic to the app. So far I listen to a different app regarding radio traffic and monitor flight radar app at the same time.
Nearby Flights in Books?
by Tinathir on 2021/06/25 14:34
As functional as this app is, it’s a bad iOS Citizen. Why does it offer a no removable option for nearby flights in the share menu?
Disappointed
by Jgshake on 2021/06/23 20:07
The first flight I need to track AA 2357 isn’t available on the app?? I can find it on other trackers - WTH?
Really good flight tracker just update To Airplane-Photos.net
by nmbmj,nmbmnjgbjbhb on 2021/06/23 16:58
I really like the tracker just the website of the photos jetphotos does not have the private jets however Airplane Photos.net does have it I mean it’s really good every time I see one heading towards me I believe it good flight tracker
Ads are annoying
by eeyyeehbeee on 2021/06/22 00:15
The ads on this app are super annoying when I want to track something real quick. I have to exit the app to get out of the ad and be able to track. I refuse to pay for this app again after I paid for the old version only to not have my benefits come to the new version from a year or 2 ago
AR View Broken
by unkown_user_404 on 2021/06/20 21:07
I recently got a new IPhone, and the AR view is broke. I can enter AR view, but I can’t see any planes even on full radius, and I’m right next to an active airport! I also realized that it did work, just when I tried to point my camera at a nearby plane, the thing that pops up when a plane is by on AR mode is in the top left hand corner and I don’t know why. Please fix this issue on IPhone 7!!!!!
Great App
by w3p999 on 2021/06/19 13:01
I love Flightradar24 and how easy it is to use. It’s really helpful and enjoy using it, but up till the recent update, if you don’t have premium, there are ads almost after everything you touch. It gets really annoying but I hope there may be less in the future, but great app!
Lags so hard it restarts my IPad
by 7878o87878 on 2021/06/15 18:41
When I open flight radar 24, it lags so much that it forces my IPad to restart. Btw I’m using a 2020 IPad Pro.
Really good app
by jared pendle on 2021/06/14 20:57
It really does live track I’ve seen planes fly over my house on the app and have seen the planes it helps me see what kind of plane fly by my house because I get anything from brush planes to b52 sratofortresses and other military aircraft

Too many invasive ads
by justwannabeheard on 2021/06/11 01:06
I deleted this app because the number, length and content of the ads became just too much.
Good and Bad
by unhappy_app_customer on 2021/06/03 21:24
If I’m just looking around at flights for fun, it’s a 5-star app. If I’m actually trying to follow a specific flight, such as a friend or relative coming to see me or going on a trip, it’s a 1-star app. Get a text message? Need to look at some other app? Every time you return to this app, the flight you were watching is GONE and you need to go through the process of searching for that flight again. Incredibly annoying.
Amazing!!!!
by Igl112907 on 2021/06/03 16:25
As a teenager who loves aviation this app is incredible! I can track flights and identify planes that live by my house! it has all the information one could want even without the subscription!
Subscription models…
by ACTG on 2021/06/01 05:18
…. are a total ripoff. And no, I do not want a “we hear you but had to go this way” type of reply from the developer. Just nonsense.
M1 iPad Pro - Freezes Entire Tablet
by briandreed on 2021/05/31 12:43
While I love this app on my iPhone, it is completely unusable on the M1 iPad Pro. Launching the app completely freezes the entire iPad, requiring me to do a full forced reboot.
Pilot Must Have
by Renderfi on 2020/05/16 19:36
This app has gotten better with every release. If you are a pilot or a super nerd aviation enthusiast this is the app for you. If you also get the app for monitoring aviation radio communications it becomes even more fun. Watch the plane fly it’s route and monitor approach or departure frequencies and try to pick out the plane your following. I have a private pilot license and this have a backup VHF radio..sometimes I will monitor my local airport, watch planes coming over my house and listen to radio communications until they land. It’s super fun for us aviation nerds. It also helps get familiar with local approaches for IFR flying by allowing you to watch the aircrafts flight track. This can be super helpful when flying for real. Great job on the app guys!! Work on importing a higher resolution cockpit view and showing more ground details. GREAT APP!! fun app. When you fly commercially and have internet access on the flight, fairly standard these days, it’s cool to hear you own pilot work his way through heaven traffic. Now the radio monitoring app may not have all the handoff radio frequencies, but you know they will eventually be handed off to tower..:-) happy flying to all!!
8.10.2 Update has glitches
by CChamberlain4444 on 2020/11/20 05:09
Love this app but the recent update 8.10.2 has some glitches, the biggest is it lags on the location of the aircraft. For example it will show the aircraft several miles away from where it actually is then it will catch up to the correct location but then go back to lagging/delaying the location. The second major issue is the location jumps, this is not the same as the issue I just mentioned. For example if a helicopter is circling in a particular an area, it will show the helicopter’s line of history in one area as a bunch of circles but then a second later it will have the helicopter in a completely different town then a few seconds later it will completely shift back across the screen to the original location where the circular line of history is - which is technically the correct location. The third issue is it will show an aircraft traveling then all of the sudden the aircraft will completely disappear as though it was never in flight (in the air). For certain reasons in my area I know when an aircraft has or has not landed and when it is still actually in flight, so it didn’t disappear due to it landing, it disappeared due to an issue with the app.
Keep going
by baseballboi4465 on 2021/11/04 00:52
Heads up I’m an airplane enthusiast. I love this app so dam much and I use it just about every weekend. I go to my nearest plane spotting location and use this app to see the planes on final approach and the ones on that taxiway too. This app is basically what makes plane spotting enjoyable. I do have some complaints though. For some reason there is this glitch where when a plane lands on this app, occasionally it will keep going beyond the runway even though the plane is safe in real life. It’s not that big of a deal, but I do find it kinda annoying when you are trying to find realism in the app. I also think that the prices for the memberships are reasonable, but it would be really awesome if it were a bit lower. But overall this is a great app and I totally recommend it to just about anyone who has somewhat of an interest in planes. I use it to watch my relatives fly out over the radar and like to think about what they are doing on the flight. I would love to see at least one more perk added to the basic membership just to make things better. But yes I love just about everything about this app.
✈️aviation enthusiast or not - get this app✈️
by jhouseal on 2019/10/27 22:46
Non-avgeeks and avgeeks read - there’s stuff for both of you! I’m an aviation enthusiast and i have been for too long to remember (3-4 ish years) I got this app when there was a lite and a pro version a long time ago. Having experimented with the lite version, i upgraded. The reason for me telling you this is that i have experience with this app - Anyway this app is really great, especially his version. Easy to use, not slow or laggy (unless you zoom out to the whole Earth), and it is great overall. Click on a plane and it will give you route, type of plane, departure city and arrival city along with times, flight time, previous and future flights of the plane you clicked on, general line of the route, and a bunch of other great stuff. There is a subscription plan to get even more info about aircarft age, ATC data, and other avgeek stuff. You can check your flight times and see where your plane came from, search random flights and know info about them (if i searched PHL- JFK it would give me a list of different flight numbers from all the airlines that service the route). This app is really great especially for aviation enthusiasts. In addition to everything above - it allows us to know what is arriving what day and when, what’s departing, wind info and runway info. Incredible for planespotting Definitely get this app.
Bait and switch
by Outsidrm on 2018/04/02 15:54
I was extremely happy with the app as I paid for it before the subscriptions were in effect to remove ads and unlock all the features. I had shared the app with many others touting how many amazing features it had. Now I feel I’ve been cheated because even though I paid for all those features to be unlocked, I’m back to a free version essentially and have to pay a subscription if I want ad free and all the features unlocked. It’s wrong to treat the consumers that put money into your app before it got as popular as it is now. Update*** 4-2-18 I still feel cheated, the amount of users that are asking for cross platform compatibility is minimal. Anyone using iOS can re-download via previous purchases to use the original paid app on iPhone or iPad. Most users that use iOS are not asking for cross compatibility as they prefer the Apple echo system. The bare minimum you as developers could of done for your supporters that started your success by buying the original app is giving complimentary ad free option to those that purchased the original pro app. The subscription based model just spits in the face of those that brought you success. What about when iOS changes their file system again in the future and the original paid app is no longer supported. Those that paid are just out of luck?
Flight Radar
by Aquamisty on 2020/04/17 19:07
My previous version of FR24 was much better than the new version. In 3D view, pertinent flight data were displayed and constantly updated on screen especially track, altitude, speed and vertical speed. Track was especially helpful to know which runway was chosen. The new version shows none of the flight data on screen requiring having to leave the 3D view. These data should be displayed on screen like the old version. The new 3D view has a much slower response on my iPhone (6S) and terrible color display with the runway and highways appearing washed out while with terrible detail. The new version should be updated to provide the option to view the old version display along with the new 3D view. This app would be great if the 3D display could more accurately track a plane especially while landing. My experience is that the view shows the plane landing along the runway centerline about one in ten landings. Most landings are left and occasionally right of the runway and frequently too high. The creators of this app would get my highest praise if the landing accuracy could be improved. With the suggested changes and improvements, this app would be my favorite.
Goodbye Flight Aware Hello Flightradar24!
by Kalei75 on 2018/01/13 03:47
I’m an aviation geek and loved Flight Aware but for the longest time, I always wished I could know the tail numbers and registration information of an aircraft I was viewing from my lanai. I would often go online, look up all of the registration numbers of a particular aircraft in a fleet and try to find which one I was looking at. I remarked to a friend of mine how I would look up these aircraft and that’s when he introduced me to this app. Now I can easily point my iPad or iPhone at an approaching or departing aircraft and find that information. I also love the feature of being able to see recent and past photos of that very same aircraft! Just a remarkable, easy to use app! I’d HIGHLY recommend this app to ANYONE that’s an aviation geek like me or for someone a lot more advanced such as pilots, ground crew and flight crew.
Undo update
by Monkey8snow on 2020/12/06 19:35
I love this app. I use it to help track inbound flights of people I’m picking up to know when to start heading in to the terminal. No waiting allowed inside LAX so it’s real time flight info and the ability to watch planes taxi to their gate is perfect to keep lanes clear and then swoop in as they’re walking out. It’s such a wonderful tool to have. BUT.... Whatever you did yesterday to fix what I didn’t know was broken, please undo it. I can no longer see helicopters, specifically police helicopters. There’s one buzzing around over my head and I’d prefer to know if it’s LAPD or Fire or Medical or whatever without having to go outside and look up. This was such a huge part of my love for this app. Please put it back and I’ll let it slide when a helicopter icon is used but a picture of a plane comes up when you select it. And vice versa. Love the loons and the occasional ground vehicles. But please put the cop choppers back up. Thanks
Rip off!
by Fototico on 2018/09/27 22:47
Hey developer, how about if you let people that paid you use the new app ads free and with the same basic functions we had in the paid app we purchased? Even if all the other new features do not work. That is OK. Give me what I paid for and I’ll be happy. I don’t need the new features, whatever those are. - I purchased the original Flight Radar. Me and others made it possible through our purchase of the app to get the app to where it is today. Now greed has taken over the developer and they want a month or yearly subscription. Hey refund the money you took for the original app and we’ll call it even. How about that? To add insult to injury, they are offering a “free” three month subscription to their service. Really? No sweetie, it is not “free,”it cost us what we paid for the app. I do have to give the greedy developer credit for at least giving us old timers at least three months of “free” service. Because unlike other developers that have become greedy, at least they gave us three months rather than just giving us the finger.
If your a plane spotter, you need this app
by RefuseKid15 on 2018/07/15 22:20
Flightradar24 is an outstanding app for those who have a love for aviation or an average business traveler who wants to keep track of their flight’s departure and arrival times. And anyone in between. Personally, I’m a plane spotter, it’s one of my favorite hobbies, and having the power to track in bound flights and departure times at any airport on Earth in my own hands whenever I want is just incredible and super handy. And this app does more than simply track flights, it tells you their altitude, speed, heading, distance and time from destination, it tells you a specific aircrafts age, when it was built, and an aircraft’s history of recent flights, as well as give you alerts on specific flights that you can personally select with your finger tips.
Option to hide sidebar; hold focus
by LAX20531 on 2017/12/05 22:26
I love everything about this app. It definitely can consume a lot of time depending on your interests. I paid for the Gold option and feel the app differentiates itself more than its closest competitor. Enhancement request: The ability to hold focus on a selected and temporarily slide or suppress the sidebar. I love the sidebar but it does consume a lot of space so having a toggle for this would be helpful. Finally I’d remiss if neglected to see the negative reviews from those who previously purchased the app. It is not reasonable to expect an app purchase is tantamount to a lifetime license including all upgrades. There are real costs associated with development and operating costs for data, systems. and support. That’s capitalism at work. I’d much rather pay for the app than see it go away. The devs set their pricing based on its value and the competing marketplace.
In a word, “Wow”!
by Mr_Movie on 2018/05/10 17:57
I was curious about all the noise I was hearing caused by low flying commercial aircraft overhead. I discovered this app in the process of researching airport flight information. The free version of the app is amazing. I can identify what is flying over, how high it’s flying, where it is coming from and where it is going. Hats off to the developers! The “bummer” is that if you want to unlock some of the other cool features you have pay for a subscription. I would gladly pay a few dollars for this app, maybe more, but the subscription model is deal breaker for me (-1 star for that). Others have commented that the app could be purchased outright in the past and the subscription service is relatively new. I know businesses need to make money, but a subscription is not cool with an “app” in my book.
AR BEEN BROKEN FOR YEAR PLUS
by OwlSeeing on 2021/07/31 04:49
AR has been broken (showing the windows with plane info popping up in top left corner barely showing just a sliver of the window cant quite click it) been like this ever since i first downloaded it for iphone 6splus n now on my iphone 11 pro max and both ipad 7(i think ) n ipad 12.9 newest. So more than a year most likely 2 or three years i noticed it. Been paying for this app yearly for awhile n just kept assuming itd be fixed but never did so i might look elsewhere to see if i can get full years worth of advertised features somewhere else....still no response on this more than 2 year long issue andi notice handful of others saying same thing.... this will be my final subscription, i have waited long enough. 3 plus years gold member user (on diff icloud accounts at one time i had two gold memberships year long on 2 diff iclouds.. but 3 plus years for me using..yes i am a sucker lol )
Please reign in some of the advertisers
by Rpgustavson on 2020/08/04 19:16
Except for some oddities, such as planes of landed several miles off the runway, the app helps me understand what’s going on in my area as there are a lot of police flights and I’m near an airport. I understand and appreciate that the free version has to be supported in some manner, But please reign in some of your advertisers such as the hero wars and Township. Having to suffer through what seems to be five minutes of mostly misleading before being able to go on, you still have to be very careful about touching any place on the screen as it will take you to the download webpage. I have absolutely no problem with advertisements as I cannot afford a subscription, and I have even followed up on a few, but these advertisements in particular make me dread using the application.
great app! some suggestions
by _ricq_ on 2018/07/04 14:32
this new Flightradar24 is a great improvement over the previous version, the “AR”-style feature is useful, especially with lots of traffic and low visibility for IDing aircraft, the 3D view is a strange waste of space imho. some suggestions: as a Ramp Agent at an airport, I track several flights at once. it would be useful to have a bookmarks-type folder or list where I can add several flights to track and switch between quicky, without having to re-search or go through search history. perhaps also having the featue of adding my own notes, such as parking locations, who is assigned to duty, etc. also useful would be the ability to sort said flights in this hypothetical folder by distance, STA, ETA, etc.
Once a 5 star App now a mediocre 1 star App
by GevouxMedici on 2021/02/13 23:52
I am so disappointed in your decision to go down this road of turning this once great app into an advertising billboard. Not only did you add these terrible ads you added ads that specifically do not allow you to exit out them, and purposely make you have to click on the ad in order to close it. Also you have made these ads appear in a strategic way where a user will accidentally click on a ad when trying to open something completely different on the app. SHAME ON YOU FOR RUINING A ONCE GREAT APP. I’ve even in the past spent money on the app to unlock the features before you decided to turn a great app into a trashy one, because back then, I respected the app and enjoyed using in, but now I wouldn’t even spend a cent on it because of your decision to choose greed over providing a consumer friendly app. If you want to make money, then simply charge a one time download, instead of ruining the whole app.
Ads make app unusable
by NnnIIiiCCKKk on 2019/01/10 02:51
The app is by far the best at tracking planes, and being able to filter by airport, airline, equipment, etc. my favorite is the option for arrivals only as well as departures from specific airports. Now to the bad: while I’m perfectly fine with the ads, got to get paid somehow. There is one major design flaw, when you use the search button to filter, when tracking your intended flight on the live view map. The banner on the top blocks the menu buttons on the top, meaning your only option is to force quit the app every time instead of using the back button behind the ad. Maybe that was the purpose but ads aren’t supposed to break the app which this doing. Upgrades are supposed to entice you gain more information with in the app; not make it work how it was intended.
Great App
by MOMS SUNSHINE GIRL on 2019/06/06 04:44
I’m sure happy I discovered this. I love aviation and it’s so nice to be able to see what planes are flying in my area. My niece is a flight attendant and it’s a lot of fun to see her land and take off at the various locations. Also, the other night my dad who lives outside of Las Vegas was watching plane after plane fly in to McCarran airport - or the string of diamonds as it is often called. I was able to look on the app and tell him the description and size of each plane that was flying overhead that he could see, as well as the ones coming. We both had a lot of fun and he called the next night and wanted to do it again. There are so many advantages to having the app and these are just a few. I also appreciate being able to be alerted when a plane has in emergency situation. It would be nice to know what the emergency is but at least this is nice to have. It seems to freeze occasionally when planes are landing or taking off but overall seems to be very accurate. I’ve tried other aviation apps and this seems to meet my needs the best.
Caveat emptor on trial upgrades
by Too big to fail NOT on 2020/11/03 04:52
I use this App for tracking my own airplane flight. It's really quite useful for this application. I can play back my flight up to several days after I land. It displays on a map. I decided to see if I could make it display on an aviation sectional map and found an option for ATC (air traffic control) boundaries, but I had to upgrade to gold. There was a selection in the APP on my iPad where I could do a 7 day free trial. Selecting that took me to the Apple App store, however, when I selected that option my card was billed and Apple would not refund my purchase. I wouldn't have minded provided I got the map with real ATC boundaries such as Class B airspace, but those options with enhanced information are worthlless. What is needed is an ability to overlay aviation sectional charts in place of street maps in order to make a flight tracking tool useful. I am surprised the developers don't understand this.
iPhone ok...iPad no way
by BaubR on 2019/08/09 21:22
This app was clearly written for the iPhone. When you use the iPad in portrait mode, the flight information takes up the whole left-hand side of the screen which gives you half of the screen for the map. If you get rid of the flight information box on the left-hand side of the screen, you stop tracking your flight. Why the developers didn’t allow you the ability to slide up and down the aircraft information to show it or hide it and give you almost a full screen of the map, as they did on the iPhone, is a great question. If they did that, my reading for the iPad version would go to a 4 or even a 5. Thus, my two star rating is for the iPad version and I would give it a four for the iPhone version. I guess the intent is not to have you be able to look at a large view on an iPad.
If tracking a flight is all you need...
by KainhaCC on 2018/04/22 05:47
...then this app is for you! I downloaded this app when my children traveled abroad for their vacation. Being the over-concerned person/mom that I am, I thought I’d feel a *little* better knowing where they were while in flight. Did it help calm my nerves? You betcha! Was I less concerned that they were so far away from me and that there was nothing I could do about it? Not a chance! I was really impressed with how accurate the information was. For instance, for one flight it said it would land 20 min early than the ETA from the airline so (naturally) I called them as soon as the app said the plane had landed and they called me back within 5 min! Satisfied! 👍🏻
Perfect for the Aviation Enthusiast!
by csmith980 on 2021/04/23 15:40
This is hands down the best app on the entire App Store. It gives you all of the flight details you could ever imagine and then some. They don’t constantly force the upgrade subscription options on you if you’re using the Basic version, however I would highly recommend upgrading because it makes the app that much better (if that’s even possible!) I pay for the Gold subscription and it’s worth every penny. I would highly recommend this for my fellow aviation enthusiasts, frequent travelers, or just someone who wants to look up at the sky and know where a plane is headed!
Great but has one problem
by Sevyn13 on 2021/09/01 14:11
When you are in the main screen you can choose the type of map you want to see, such as road, terrain, or hybrid. But when you select an aircraft and do a playback of its previous flights the only map type that shows is terrain with no city names and is practically useless. When I’m trying to find out where my aircraft has flown, being able to see cities, borders and roads and their names would be helpful. Please add this feature and I’ll give 5 stars till then you only get two. Any update on this? Seems a very easy fix to add this in. Technically you aren’t even adding another map, you are just making it available when on the flight play back screen. I’m considering canceling my subscription over this and finding another app that does what I need.
Great information
by Greg DoubleU on 2019/09/13 07:19
I’ve often found myself struggling to remember how to get Siri to show me a list of nearby aircraft. Now, I don’t have to! It’s all here. Since I’m not a pilot, I don’t know if there’s more info than what I have here in this app, but I’m satisfied to see what details I do have access to. It’s a great way to check out what’s visible and get to familiarize myself with recurring flights. The only details I haven’t found yet is more specs on the particular aircraft, like the normal # of crew onboard and max passenger capacities. I also enjoy knowing the max speed and altitude. Short of those, I’ve found everything I know about! Great app! To me, worth the cost!
Awesome app! UPDATE- New glitch though! App “forgets” I have a subscription?
by QueenoftheBigBlue on 2021/06/29 07:21
I’ve been using this app for almost three years in my plane spotting hobby, and it truly is unparalleled. Hands down the best out there! However lately, although I have a Silver subscription, sometimes, when I open the app and tap a plane for details, I see ads- I shouldn’t since I have a sub. Is this a glitch? It’s as though the app “forgets” I have a subscription- I go into the app and see ads when I tap a plane. The sub symbol will be white, not gold as it should be. Again, I have an active sub, paid till next year, so why is that happening? Great app though! ✈️🛩
Love it
by Noah3739 on 2019/04/03 14:27
I love this app! I live right next to the Grand Rapids airport, so I like to see what plane I’m looking at. It tells you all kinds of info like type, flight plan, tail number, and airline. Although sometimes the AR doesn’t work great, because I can see a plane, but it says it’s in a completely different direction. One thing I would like to see on this app would be plane crashes highlighted. Other than that, it’s a fantastic app. One more thing, I want have a filter for flight diversions. Okay, so the AR is working much better now, and O figured out that emergencies are highlighted. But, one thing I want next would be to see reports of what’s going on if at all possible on the emergencies.
Amazing!!!
by Batman2287 on 2018/10/03 04:36
What an amazing app! I followed my wife’s flight all the way to DIA and even watched her taxi to the gate. I knew she was at Concourse A. I knew when she stopped because her speed reached zero. Sure enough, she let me know she was there right at that moment. I also knew the flight was going to be early because it tells you when the plane will arrive as you follow it. This app is awesome and it is very accurate and in real time!!! Great Job on this app! I wish it was one price to upgrade instead of subscriptions. I would pay for it but I won’t do subscriptions. I don’t know if you can have an alert set when the plane lands, but that would be an awesome feature. Thanks!!!
Too many advertisements
by Closetmonst3r on 2019/02/24 15:20
I fell in love with this app years ago and paid (don’t remember how much) for the ad free version, which was a one time payment. Fast forward a few years and Flightradar24 updates/upgrades their app to a subscription based model and plasters their app with advertisements. I realize they need to make money but what happened to my payment I made? Basically they tossed all of us loyal users (who paid) out the window. They didn’t even offer some sort of discounted upgrade for people who already paid for their original app. I, in my opinion, feel they made a mistake in doing this. First, I’m sure the majority of Flightradar24 users are aviation enthusiasts, which means we enjoy using the app but by no means need to pay for increased functionality. I’m not even sure who WOULD need to pay monthly, for ever, to use this app. I certainly can’t justify paying even a couple dollars a month (it’s more than that for their lowest monthly subscription), to use their app maybe, on average, 2 times a month. I decided to give a review and give one star, when I opened up the app this morning and was greeted with a full page ad, not just a rotating ad banner on top or bottom. I hope this review makes it to Flightradar24 HQ and they rethink their revenue model.
Airline Pilot recommended!
by AAL787 on 2018/12/31 15:29
I absolutely love this app. I’m a captain on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner for the largest airline in the world. To see and use this technology is so enjoyable and engaging. No matter where you are you can look up at the sky and be able to see what kind of airplane is flying overhead and where it’s going. The additional flight parameters and information are also entertaining to see. When I’m waiting for an inbound flight I can quickly check its position to coordinate my own outbound preparations. If I could make any improvements to this app I would create the ability to tag a future outbound flight to text me any delay notifications. I’d also create the ability to tag specific outbound airline and fleet so I’ll know if all of the airplanes of my fleet and base have departed or are delayed. It would help when I’m on call and could prepare for possible re-crewing of an aircraft. In any case, the developers of this app have done an absolutely wonderful and commendable job and I happily send my regards and compliments on a job well done!
Personal ATC

For someone who has more than a passing interest in aircraft, this is a must. I know the display “jumps” from time to time (install your own radar on the roof maybe), and it doesn’t tell you “everything” about “every” aircraft but if ya go out to the airport sometime (Dallas/Fort Worth) you can see the aircraft coming from Tulsa and Tulagi, from St. Louis (MO) and Saint Petersburg (Russia). I live 9 DME on the Ft. Worth (FTW) Localizer. It’s interesting to know who’s landing (and who doesn’t have the needle centered) when I’m outside working in the yard and just sitting on the patio having a beer I turn the iPad orienting to North and can see everybody in that portion of sky. OK, maybe I need to get a “life” but this is a fun Ap!
Favorite app!
by Nathanielllll on 2018/05/02 01:18
I love this app. I geek out with it all the time, causing much embarrassment to my wife in front of friends. App correctly identifies planes and helicopters every time. Flight and plane history is super interesting, and it's a great app to have while traveling as you're able to see where your plane is even when it's several legs away. If you want to know what you saw from the plane on your trip, use the flight playback to see exactly where you went. The uses for this app are endless for nerds like me. Only suggestion: flight playback map currently only has a satellite view. Please add options for hybrid or standard map views!
I am likely leaving this app
by jdawgnoonan on 2018/06/06 21:22
I have enjoyed using the version of this app that I paid for, but I am not interested in paying a subscription of $0.83 a month just to get rid of ads. I do not care about all of the features, I just like seeing the radar. I am insulted by the lack of an ad free version that I can pay less for to just access the radar. $0.83 a month is more than I am willing to pay for that, since I do not care about the other features and I only used this app a few times a year anyway, therefore I will be getting rid of an app that I have enjoyed when I did use it. I do not allow ad supported apps to exist on my device. I am giving you three stars because your app is good, but I am disappointed and would like to give you two.
Great app for ADHD people like me who love aviation 😆
by DiamondGirl💎💩😎 on 2021/09/26 16:44
Okay, so this review may not be entirely what it’s meant to be for, but I get bored often and get easily distracted. Whenever I hear a plane or helicopter or something I literally drop everything to look where it is, and then proceed to find it on the map being the nerd I am. I personally only use it for looking at planes, so I don’t really have a use for the subscription, so I cant say much on it. I often find myself staring at this app very frequently, the most I have ever is 27 minutes, haha. It’s a great app, highly recommend especially for people like me😁
Need to change weather settings
by eepisski on 2018/02/05 16:57
Good app. Noticed barometric pressure is in hpa. Wonder if could change to inches of mercury. Also, we have a lot of regular small aircraft, carry about 10-20 people flying over. I live by the Mackinac Bridge. Mackinac island is 5 miles out in Lake Huron, currently lake is frozen, so have flights flying people back and forth from county airport to island airport. Wondering if developers could show smaller aircraft as know they show drones in some areas. We do have bigger airports in Pellston and Sault ste Marie which are 20 and 50 miles away respectively. During winter months Mackinac County Airport in St. Ignace is busier than Pellston and Chippewa County airports combined.
A Great Application.
by Assfjkl1234 on 2020/12/31 17:09
As the title says, this is a great App. There is an incredible amount of information contained here. I held a private pilot license some years ago and if this application was available then it would have been a great learning tool for ground school. That’s in addition to the vast amount of current live information available now. My recommendation is everyone should download this application if you find one better suited to your needs use them both. I want to thank my son in law for turning me on to this very fine application. This is a Richie🐝 “straight up” review.
Would like to see another particular filter...
by cdw25si on 2019/09/16 14:43
I have had the paid version of this app on IOS for a few years and do love the app. I live in an area where we have the only level 1 trauma center for up to 250 miles. I am also a Firefighter/Paramedic and have flown in medical helo’s. I would love to see a filter where in the app you can select the type of aircraft to watch include in it an option for various makes of helicopters like the Eurocopter H130, H135, H145, Bell 429, and other Bell medivac helo’s. I’m also having problems with being alerted for the aircraft I have saved in alerts. Otherwise I love the app. I use it in conjunction with scanners and the Live ATC app.
Great app....but!
by Mrneely357 on 2018/01/03 21:55
I think this is a wonderful app. I have used it on many many occasions because I am an airplane enthusiast and I like to go down to the airport and watch planes fly in and fly out. When I am about to fly for vacation I can definitely count on finding out if my plane is on time or delayed or when I have Friends or family flying in I can track their flights coming from their destination. But, the only thing that really frustrates me is when I use the 3-D view how buggy it is when it gets down to the airplane about to land somewhere around two or 3000 feet and the app either Locks up or the airplane goes nuts and is all over the map. That aspect is very buggy. Could u please look into a fix for that. Thank you!
Used to work
by linleyj on 2019/04/11 06:37
I have been extremely happy with this app until about a month ago. I thought the problem was with something on my end because I would load the app and it would show no planes in my area. I would move the map a little to view Houston and it would show none (which never happens). I uninstalled and reinstalled the app thinking it was a glitch. It fixed it for a little while but I am now having the problems again. It used to allow me see what kind of helicopters were flying over and now more than half the time not even all planes show up. I pay for the gold version because I enjoy getting to see what’s going on but now it seems I am just throwing the money away. When I attempted to “contact the developer” by clicking that option it took me to a website that didn’t work either!
Did the upgrade, had the newest version
by 123bob897 on 2018/11/22 00:28
So I did the upgrade, and had the latest paid version and paid for the Silver. It gave me the high resolution 3D showing the cockpit view and the view just behind the aircraft. Really slick, loved it. A few days later my iPhone showed I had App Store upgrades available on a few of my apps, including FlightRadar. So I did the upgrades. It upgraded my FlightRadar back to my original FlightRadar24. I no longer have the enhanced features of the paid version, which I assume I’m still paying for. Whats going on here? Likewise when I go to iTunes it doesn’t show I’m paying for anything. It seemed to have reset everything back to the free version. Really disappointed in your product.
Best app for aviation geeks
by GeekyAviation on 2020/09/28 22:10
This app is absolutely incredible. I live pretty close to a major airport, so planes fly over my house all the time, and it’s really cool to see the planes info, and seeing where it came from around the world. I use this every single day. I honestly haven’t really ran into to any major problems. The developers did a wonderful job. You can really tell they are trying to make they’re customers happy, not just trying to get money. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about downloading. Great app, keep up the amazing work.
Terrific Support
by StanSien on 2019/07/04 02:03
I love this app for all the information it provides about flights. One of the best features is the augmented reality where you can lift your phone to the sky and it shows the flights above and then you can click to find out more. For some reason it started not to work. I contacted support and within the next day I had my answer. Seems my settings on the phone changed and after a few clicks I was back to observing the flights in my neighborhood. Love the Pro version. Worth the price and I like to know I support the developers.
Great app
by ajj093 on 2019/01/12 07:33
I use the app for work since I work at the airport, having the notifications when the plane leaves (notification must be set up specifically for certain flights like tail number or flight number or airline company) is a awesome feature, knowing where the plane is when it’s taxing is a huge plus. Of course there’s a little lag between the plane and the phone showing it’s location but over time it’s been getting better. If only you can upload pictures of planes instead of going to the 2nd website they use and uploading pictures there.
Ads make me grumpy
by Samiboarder on 2021/07/15 05:22
As a paying customer for the past few years, I don’t understand the switch to extremely annoying full page ads that interrupt what you are doing! Mayyybe a banner ad could be excusable, but this latest update is awful. Please reconsider this change or else I will have to reconsider using the app. Other than that, this app has been very nice to use and packed full of features. *update* The previously mentioned changes were removed soon after so I am back to being happy with the experience. Thank you to the development team for listening.
If you are interested in this app, just get it.
by Aviris on 2021/10/19 22:23
What’s not to like? I have no reason to have this app other than curiosity. I liked the first version and this is better. More than most apps I get the need for a subscription model since it is providing an information service that requires constant attention. And what great information. The UI is pretty straightforward considering all the data it is possible to view. Like airplanes? Enough to want to track them, identify any you happen to see flying by? Get the app already.
Surprisingly good for the free version!
by BookerTAS on 2020/05/09 19:55
Interesting to use, as I’m near a small airport and under the flight paths of larger commercial airlines. The only negative (and it’s not significant) is how many flights list “N/A” for the origin of the flight when you can clearly see it by the line showing from where it came. Other than that, no complaints. While sitting outside, my girlfriend will often point at a passenger jet and ask, “where do you think that’s going?” I usually make up something unlikely. Now I can tell her for certain!
Way of the World
by iloveiphone123 on 2019/06/28 14:17
I purchased this app when you bought a full subscription before the “member levels”. Before developers were able to charge higher cyclic prices. The early days of Apple. 99 cent apps to 3.99 apps, never more than 9.99 one time charge. When apps were making life more easy for users while the big bucks weren’t making someone wealthy. Of course, this was not really the way of this world. No...just early in the iphone app era. Commercialism has set in now...great apps are charging subscription fees...its becoming big business...and everyday users looking for information apps to make life a bit easier or entertaining have to pay the subscription fees. Always comes down to money. I used to love this app along with others....just pitiful.
Okay but
by kevcg on 2021/05/17 15:21
It’s okay since I have cousins who are pilots and flight attendants so I can easily track their travels yet the only thing that bothers me is when their flight is delayed it doesn’t give an update for the departure or arrival how inconvenient because what if you are a connecting passenger and don’t have the right info your going to miss your connection also the ads are annoying I have to close out every time then reopen the app to continue the process wish it could just be a completely free app instead of paying all the time it’s getting really annoying.
How to treat your customers
by fishbomb3r on 2020/04/26 15:15
Dear Developers, In business you have to treat your customers with respect. There are many other one star ratings due to your decision to change to a subscription model. You probably had good reason. Maybe the free data that you get from the Government wasn’t good enough for you. Maybe, like Accuweather (check out Last Week Tonight), you thought the value you add to this public data was far beyond what everyone else does. Maybe your data feed, which continues to cost less than when you started, was starting to starting to strain under the features you kept adding. That’s fine. Whatever it was, there were those of us in the traveling public who paid for an app that no longer functions. Now, I’m not saying that I want to start a class action against you with what appears to be several thousand others. What I am saying is that you have an opportunity to make things right first. We, your loyal users, who have recommended your app in airports, bars and disgusting rental cars from Fox Rental Car deserve better. Please return our function version without ads. Thanks
Love this app.
by CaptainLyday on 2020/04/07 21:37
Hello. I really LOVE this app! I use this app mutiple times a day and it is so cool to trick my friends into wondering how I know that a plane is flying over their house. There is just one feature that I really wish could be in the app. It would be so cool if we could filter timetables at airports to a certain airline or aircraft. If im looking for something specific at a busy airport like ATL, it would take me forever to scroll through the entire thing just to find one flight. I would truly enjoy this filter feature and use it quite often.

I just found this app on TikTok
Lacks a large percentage of planes
by KJ235 on 2021/12/02 19:37
I fly a drone for surveying purposes and need to know what’s flying in the area. Flightradar 24 shows about 50% of the planes and helicopters that come through an area where I am flying drone.Some of the smaller planes and helicopters are flying at low a GL and I get no information on them from flightradar 24
Great, but room for improvement!
by Someone247536 on 2021/11/28 18:54
This app sometimes fails to find registration and correct aircraft type for aircraft without a flight plan, while the ADS-B Exchange almost always has it. Otherwise, the app has a few bugs here and there but overall it’s well designed and could easily be THE best flight tracking app out there!
love this app
by toastedmarshmallow969 on 2021/11/28 05:57
i downloaded this app a couple months ago and im obsessed with it. it’s super cool lol
Ugly but Great
by ARS01 on 2021/11/26 22:57
Many cool features not found elsewhere. I would give it 5 stars when they correct an annoying defect - the planes are often miles off course offering erratic flight paths making it at times very inaccurate. Planes often fly sideways! Backwards, side to side! This is obviously a programming error. Other sites have tracking right so it can be done. For what I am paying, I am very disappointed.
Best app
by Prekwent plyer on 2021/11/25 05:20
I am greatly satisfied with this highly accurate tracking app. Being a premium subscriber, I am absolutely happy with no pop up advertisement intrusion.

Outstanding app and overall functionality.
Not so good anymore
by TerminalWX on 2021/11/14 14:28
Intrusive pop-up ads and the crippling of formally included features, a disappointing experience. Banner ads acceptable. When I am able to use the app it seems to work smoothly, does a fair job of reporting aircraft location, the graphics are nice.
What happened?
by Radar O'Reiley on 2021/11/13 23:40
I’m a PREMIUM member and since mid-October 2021, helicopters and a lot of nearby flights at an airport near me have gone “invisible.” I did nothing to change settings during any update and now, some aircraft just don’t show up like they did. I can see helicopters on two of my other flight apps but can’t when I’m using FlightRadar24.
Phenomenal
by Testing Gameplay on 2021/11/07 01:34
This app is great it's so cool to see what planes are flying at first I didn't know if it was real but now I go past my local airport KSAN and look on the app and see a Southwest landing so I look on the app and it's there, IMO anyone who is into planes should get this
Apple store policy violation
by 78954eye on 2021/11/05 12:05
Bought the app years ago and just started using it again but now it’s subscription based? Can I get the app I paid for back?
Does not work
by Tyler Andersen on 2021/11/04 04:38
AR mode does not work like the old version of the app.
Keep going
by baseballboi4465 on 2021/11/04 00:52
Heads up I’m an airplane enthusiast. I love this app so dam much and I use it just about every weekend. I go to my nearest plane spotting location and use this app to see the planes on final approach and the ones on that taxiway too. This app is basically what makes plane spotting enjoyable. I do have some complaints though. For some reason there is this glitch where when a plane lands on this app, occasionally it will keep going beyond the runway even though the plane is safe in real life. It’s not that big of a deal, but I do find it kinda annoying when you are trying to find realism in the app. I also think that the prices for the memberships are reasonable, but it would be really awesome if it were a bit lower. But overall this is a great app and I totally recommend it to just about anyone who has somewhat of an interest in planes. I use it to watch my relatives fly out over the radar and like to think about what they are doing on the flight. I would love to see at least one more perk added to the basic membership just to make things better. But yes I love just about everything about this app.

Like this one A LOT
by Nomoretryz on 2021/10/21 16:17
BUT: the ads are long, there’s a Heavy Plane over head that I can hear (because I’m hard of hearing) but cannot locate and don’t see it on the screen because the Ad is still running and the X to stop it is Camouflaged not to be found.
If you are interested in this app, just get it.

Stupid
by LOLGEVOS on 2021/10/16 20:50
You want to show me ads? Fine. But this app shows me ads as I’m searching for information. If I’m searching for the information then that means I need it now. Why not show me ads after I’ve had a few seconds to view the information I’m looking for? I’m fine with seeing ads to maintain a free experience, but showing them while I am searching for information is infuriating. Blah blah blah “we offer a subscription” blah blah blah. And I’m offering this one star review.

Adds for a paid app?

Continues to deliver
by swilmerct on 2021/09/22 14:27
I have sat on my deck in Connecticut and on Prince Edward Island, Canada enjoying being able to identify planes as they go by. This often opens a discussion of travels to far away destinations. Love this app.
iOS15’s dark-mode map support needed
by Asteras.g on 2021/09/22 12:20
It’s the best app of its kind. I just would like developers to bring to the iOS app as much love as they bring it to the Android app. Adding dark-mode maps that are now available on Apple Maps system-wide, would be a nice step towards it.

I know nothing about planes but I love sitting outside at night and watching them fly over. With this app it’s so interesting knowing where they’re going as you watch them. It’s so accurate!
Not accurate at all
by That guy113425673 on 2021/09/20 01:37
Don’t download this app. It’s glitching, inaccurate and the play back feature is a joke! I can see in real time aircraft with a blocked registration on the app and over head… check the play back feature and it shows nothing… shady app

Truly a great app for plane spotting
by nicnname 1004995773 on 2021/09/14 00:40
Truly a great app. The data is live, I can look outside my house and see a plane and bring up the app and it’s right there with a full id and destination. I can see which way traffic at ORD is flowing and there’s just something very pleasant about knowing exactly what plane is flying over head. It may sound odd but to a plane spotter it makes perfect sense.

Advertising is one thing. Pestering, obnoxious ones are another.
Can’t close ads
by zzzzzz3425rz123 on 2021/09/11 03:50
Can’t close full screen ads. You have to quit the app.
FILTERS
by SSTconcorde on 2021/09/09 02:51
Please fix the filter for saved airplane filters, when applied nothing changes. Thank you , a great App!
Great but has one problem
by Sevyn13 on 2021/09/01 14:11
When you are in the main screen you can choose the type of map you want to see, such as road, terrain, or hybrid. But when you select an aircraft and do a playback of its previous flights the only map type that shows is terrain with no city names and is practically useless. When I’m trying to find out where my aircraft has flown, being able to see cities, borders and roads and their names would be helpful. Please add this feature and I’ll give 5 stars till then you only get two. Any update on this? Seems a very easy fix to add this in. Technically you aren’t even adding another map, you are just making it available when on the flight play back screen. I’m considering canceling my subscription over this and finding another app that does what I need.
Fix iPad version please!!
by Orldad1996 on 2021/09/01 13:37
For several months now the iPad version has not worked AT ALL! I’m a gold subscriber and prefer iPad over iPhone. Literally does not work, once you open the app and immediately crashes.
Very undependable
by MaineCapt on 2021/08/31 11:40
So often I check for a specific N-number and Flightradar24 comes back with “no flights found” then I go to FlightAware and all the flights for that N-number pop right up. I have canceled my GOLD subscription for this reason.
Good app but,
by 2K6GTO on 2021/08/25 13:56
Paid for this app a couple of years ago to get rid of the adds. Now they’ve upgraded the base app to include adds again. They want annual subscriptions, fine because they include extras. I just want my base app back with no adds. Wish I’d never of updated.
Great app
by howndi on 2021/08/22 23:52
I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Big help during fire season. I live in the typical flight path from the local airport. When I hear the planes overhead I can open the app and get the approximate location of the fire. Thanks to all the fire fighters, aircraft, etc trying to contain the fires keep up the fight.
Visibility settings
by Miser 321 on 2021/08/22 17:54
What is the story. Each time I open the app it says “filters and visibility settings are disabled”. Do we need an update or something to clear that up ?
Business ethics
by Mferjones on 2021/08/21 03:40
Paid money for this app years ago…now I get to enjoy their adds! It’s a great app but the business ethics are questionable….refund??
Great paid app BUT also has ads
by Brian31714 on 2021/08/18 18:47
Not sure how you get away with pushing ads all the time and charging for this app.
Love this app
by orelakeriviera on 2021/08/18 15:33
I use it daily just to see what’s coming over the house. It’s so fun.
Doesn’t show airplanes.
by Ebiquitous on 2021/08/16 02:59
Perhaps I selected a setting somewhere that caused airplanes to stop showing up. I can see them and hear them, but they don’t appear on my iPhone screen. Before the planes vanished, it was an enjoyable and utilitarian app.
Frustrating!
by miotio on 2021/08/14 07:16
I love flightradar24 but it takes FOREVER for the maps to appear! It’s not unusual for it to take 30 to 60 seconds of looking at the grid before the map finally fills in. With every other app and website that I frequent that utilize maps the maps appear instantaneously. Hopefully this frustrating issue is being addressed.
App freezes
by energy4us on 2021/08/13 15:23
I am encountering an issue every time I open the app in IPad Pro 14.7.1 First app works very slowly. Cursor or touch then freeze until the app and entire IPad crashes. Once it's crashed none of the controls on the iPads work any longer. 4-5 minutes later, and repeated side button pushes, it resets to Home Screen. Apart from that app would be very good.
Great World Traveling Companion!
by Scott Pulliam on 2021/08/11 16:03
I have lived in 3 different countries and flown many flights. This app has always been fun to use and useful at times. But ever since the pandemic it’s been incredibly helpful! I’ve used it to check out airports and different airlines and routes to see how often they’ve been cancelling flights, and using the data to make more sure fire decisions on who to fly with and which route to take to elevate risk of cancelled flights.
Helicopters? Edit
by sneak__e on 2021/08/11 08:43
Correct me if I’m wrong , but I could have sworn this app also tracked helicopters. What happened? Edit 8/11: After reaching out to the developers they did assure and explained to me that helicopters are still indeed shown on the app.

by Jacques ❤️ on 2021/08/05 22:30
Ever since they killed the old app, I’m back to what is essentially a ‘free’ version with ads. I PAID to get rid of these, and then you just changed the app? This is NOT customer friendly at all, and it feels like a rip-off to me 😡 The app itself should get a 5-star review, but given the bad customer handling, I’m at 1 ...

AR BEEN BROKEN FOR YEAR PLUS
by OwlSeeing on 2021/07/31 04:49
AR has been broken (showing the windows with plane info popping up in top left corner barely showing just a sliver of the window cant quite click it) been like this ever since i first downloaded it for iphone 6splus n now on my iphone 11 pro max and both ipad 7(i think ) n ipad 12.9 newest. So more than a year most likely 2 or three years i noticed it. Been paying for this app yearly for awhile n just kept assuming itd be fixed but never did so i might look elsewhere to see if i can get full years worth of advertised features somewhere else....still no response on this more than 2 year long issue andi notice handful of others saying same thing.... this will be my final subscription, i have waited long enough. 3 plus years gold member user (on diff icloud accounts at one time i had two gold memberships year long on 2 diff iclouds.. but 3 plus years for me using..yes i am a sucker lol )
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
by nah gjeshejdhwud on 2021/07/21 16:37

Nothing shows up!
by AllSystemsNoooooo on 2021/07/21 16:05
The most recent update has screwed things up majorly! I can’t pull up any radar of any planes. Just a map with airports but no planes. I’m paying $5 a month for this blank map? Fix this ASAP please!
Subscription

AT THIS CURRENT UPDATE... no planes are showing up....
Dishonest
by Star czar on 2021/07/18 16:05
Firstly, this is a great app! The problem is with the developers/ Sales people. I had it, free, then I bought it to get all the extra perks and I used it once or twice and next thing it is cancelled and you have to get the new one. This is a dishonest ploy to take a person’s money for the same thing with some improvements that should have just been offered in an update. Very disappointing.
Inaccurate aircraft descriptions
by Sandmanpatt on 2021/07/17 19:15
I like searching for any old war birds flying around. Today, I clicked on an icon of a small aircraft and the description said Cessna 172…the picture of it, an F4Phantom. Yesterday, I happened to find a Submarine Spitfire, bouncing between 48k and 50k feet altitude…couldn’t make up it mind. Sometimes whiles watching the screen, some aircraft go wiggy, the suddenly deviate from their path, twist, and turn a different heading.
First and one of the best apps I’ve used
by Deviledegg22 on 2021/07/15 11:30
This was the first radar app I downloaded. Subscriptions I can’t stand (normally) but I’ve been using Flightradar24 for a couple years now. This is one app that I’ll pay for yearly. It’s worth the money and is great for my photography and plane spotting.
Ads make me grumpy
by Samiboarder on 2021/07/15 05:22
As a paying customer for the past few years, I don’t understand the switch to extremely annoying full page ads that interrupt what you are doing! Mayyybe a banner ad could be excusable, but this latest update is awful. Please reconsider this change or else I will have to reconsider using the app. Other than that, this app has been very nice to use and packed full of features. *update* The previously mentioned changes were removed soon after so I am back to being happy with the experience. Thank you to the development team for listening.
Get this app now!!!
by foxyt10 on 2021/07/15 01:48
It’s a great app when you have the upgrade. If you don’t have the upgrade it has random ads and when you try to tap on something you end up on a website. We use this app to see where the fire planes are going. Supper easy to use!
Ads are intrusive
by Bswartz95 on 2021/07/14 13:32
I don’t mind seeing some ads (banners), but these ads are obnoxious. Full screen ads that don’t go away - missing what you opened the app to watch on the first place.

Unreliable
by cornboy08 on 2021/07/05 18:46
So many times this has screwed me over when I wanted to go spotting. It will show as canceled but then as I disappointingly drive by the airport I see it pushing back. And just this day it showed that one as departing at 2:59, but then I see it’s departed 20 minutes early! And with no update from the app. Also the adds are unbearable. I’d just like it to be a bit more easier and reliable.
Targeted Ads can’t opt out
by Kirdetzoff on 2021/07/04 13:24
Not acceptable in 2021!
Awesome app! UPDATE- New glitch though! App “forgets” I have a subscription?
by QueenoftheBigBlue on 2021/06/29 07:21
I’ve been using this app for almost three years in my plane spotting hobby, and it truly is unparalleled. Hands down the best out there! However lately, although I have a Silver subscription, sometimes, when I open the app and tap a plane for details, I see ads- I shouldn’t since I have a sub. Is this a glitch? It’s as though the app “forgets” I have a subscription- I go into the app and see ads when I tap a plane. The sub symbol will be white, not gold as it should be. Again, I have an active sub, paid till next year, so why is that happening? Great app though! ✈️🛩
Logged Out Constantly
by ef724 on 2021/06/29 03:04
I’ve been a FR24 user for years and pay for the gold subscription. I now get logged out and burdened with ads every time I open the app after the latest update. Horrible.

Why am I getting ads when I pay for premium ? Developer I need a response ?
Ads Reappeared Despite Subscription
by Li'l Boss on 2021/06/28 22:33
I have used this excellent app for a long time now. I paid for a Gold Subscription that is good through the end of the year. Today…suddenly…useless Google ads began to appear in a bar across the top of the screen. I can’t get rid of them! What is up with this?
Restore my purchase
by ericsas on 2021/06/28 18:49
I purchased the gold pkg and used it for less than a month. Now it is asking me to “upgrade to gold”And theimage is now static. The biggest problem with this app is that there is no way to communicate with the developers.
Why am I now getting ads?
by SimonNS1 on 2021/06/28 14:32
Have been a huge fan of the site for years (5 stars) but today, I’m now seeing ads despite paying the Gold subscription. Please don’t do this: I’d rather pay a little more every month than have the screen cluttered.
Fun App
by Danny1978d on 2021/06/28 07:05
Love this app. Makes me use my imagination to travel to different places around the world. It would awesome if you can add radio traffic to the app. So far I listen to a different app regarding radio traffic and monitor flight radar app at the same time.
Nearby Flights in Books?
by Tinathir on 2021/06/25 14:34
As functional as this app is, it’s a bad iOS Citizen. Why does it offer a no removable option for nearby flights in the share menu?
Disappointed
by Jgshake on 2021/06/23 20:07
The first flight I need to track AA 2357 isn’t available on the app?? I can find it on other trackers - WTH?

Ads are annoying
by eeyyeehbeee on 2021/06/22 00:15
The ads on this app are super annoying when I want to track something real quick. I have to exit the app to get out of the ad and be able to track. I refuse to pay for this app again after I paid for the old version only to not have my benefits come to the new version from a year or 2 ago
AR View Broken
by unkown_user_404 on 2021/06/20 21:07
I recently got a new IPhone, and the AR view is broke. I can enter AR view, but I can’t see any planes even on full radius, and I’m right next to an active airport! I also realized that it did work, just when I tried to point my camera at a nearby plane, the thing that pops up when a plane is by on AR mode is in the top left hand corner and I don’t know why. Please fix this issue on IPhone 7!!!!!
Great App
by w3p999 on 2021/06/19 13:01
I love Flightradar24 and how easy it is to use. It’s really helpful and enjoy using it, but up till the recent update, if you don’t have premium, there are ads almost after everything you touch. It gets really annoying but I hope there may be less in the future, but great app!
Lags so hard it restarts my IPad

Good and Bad
by unhappy_app_customer on 2021/06/03 21:24
If I’m just looking around at flights for fun, it’s a 5-star app. If I’m actually trying to follow a specific flight, such as a friend or relative coming to see me or going on a trip, it’s a 1-star app. Get a text message? Need to look at some other app? Every time you return to this app, the flight you were watching is GONE and you need to go through the process of searching for that flight again. Incredibly annoying.
Amazing!!!!
by Igl112907 on 2021/06/03 16:25
As a teenager who loves aviation this app is incredible! I can track flights and identify planes that live by my house! it has all the information one could want even without the subscription!
Subscription models…
by ACTG on 2021/06/01 05:18
…. are a total ripoff. And no, I do not want a “we hear you but had to go this way” type of reply from the developer. Just nonsense.
M1 iPad Pro - Freezes Entire Tablet

Pilot Must Have
by Renderfi on 2020/05/16 19:36
This app has gotten better with every release. If you are a pilot or a super nerd aviation enthusiast this is the app for you. If you also get the app for monitoring aviation radio communications it becomes even more fun. Watch the plane fly it’s route and monitor approach or departure frequencies and try to pick out the plane your following. I have a private pilot license and this have a backup VHF radio..sometimes I will monitor my local airport, watch planes coming over my house and listen to radio communications until they land. It’s super fun for us aviation nerds. It also helps get familiar with local approaches for IFR flying by allowing you to watch the aircrafts flight track. This can be super helpful when flying for real. Great job on the app guys!! Work on importing a higher resolution cockpit view and showing more ground details. GREAT APP!! fun app. When you fly commercially and have internet access on the flight, fairly standard these days, it’s cool to hear you own pilot work his way through heaven traffic. Now the radio monitoring app may not have all the handoff radio frequencies, but you know they will eventually be handed off to tower..:-) happy flying to all!!
8.10.2 Update has glitches
by CChamberlain4444 on 2020/11/20 05:09
Love this app but the recent update 8.10.2 has some glitches, the biggest is it lags on the location of the aircraft. For example it will show the aircraft several miles away from where it actually is then it will catch up to the correct location but then go back to lagging/delaying the location. The second major issue is the location jumps, this is not the same as the issue I just mentioned. For example if a helicopter is circling in a particular an area, it will show the helicopter’s line of history in one area as a bunch of circles but then a second later it will have the helicopter in a completely different town then a few seconds later it will completely shift back across the screen to the original location where the circular line of history is - which is technically the correct location. The third issue is it will show an aircraft traveling then all of the sudden the aircraft will completely disappear as though it was never in flight (in the air). For certain reasons in my area I know when an aircraft has or has not landed and when it is still actually in flight, so it didn’t disappear due to it landing, it disappeared due to an issue with the app.
Keep going
by baseballboi4465 on 2021/11/04 00:52
Heads up I’m an airplane enthusiast. I love this app so dam much and I use it just about every weekend. I go to my nearest plane spotting location and use this app to see the planes on final approach and the ones on that taxiway too. This app is basically what makes plane spotting enjoyable. I do have some complaints though. For some reason there is this glitch where when a plane lands on this app, occasionally it will keep going beyond the runway even though the plane is safe in real life. It’s not that big of a deal, but I do find it kinda annoying when you are trying to find realism in the app. I also think that the prices for the memberships are reasonable, but it would be really awesome if it were a bit lower. But overall this is a great app and I totally recommend it to just about anyone who has somewhat of an interest in planes. I use it to watch my relatives fly out over the radar and like to think about what they are doing on the flight. I would love to see at least one more perk added to the basic membership just to make things better. But yes I love just about everything about this app.
✈️aviation enthusiast or not - get this app✈️
by jhouseal on 2019/10/27 22:46
Non-avgeeks and avgeeks read - there’s stuff for both of you! I’m an aviation enthusiast and i have been for too long to remember (3-4 ish years) I got this app when there was a lite and a pro version a long time ago. Having experimented with the lite version, i upgraded. The reason for me telling you this is that i have experience with this app - Anyway this app is really great, especially his version. Easy to use, not slow or laggy (unless you zoom out to the whole Earth), and it is great overall. Click on a plane and it will give you route, type of plane, departure city and arrival city along with times, flight time, previous and future flights of the plane you clicked on, general line of the route, and a bunch of other great stuff. There is a subscription plan to get even more info about aircarft age, ATC data, and other avgeek stuff. You can check your flight times and see where your plane came from, search random flights and know info about them (if i searched PHL- JFK it would give me a list of different flight numbers from all the airlines that service the route). This app is really great especially for aviation enthusiasts. In addition to everything above - it allows us to know what is arriving what day and when, what’s departing, wind info and runway info. Incredible for planespotting Definitely get this app.
Bait and switch
by Outsidrm on 2018/04/02 15:54
I was extremely happy with the app as I paid for it before the subscriptions were in effect to remove ads and unlock all the features. I had shared the app with many others touting how many amazing features it had. Now I feel I’ve been cheated because even though I paid for all those features to be unlocked, I’m back to a free version essentially and have to pay a subscription if I want ad free and all the features unlocked. It’s wrong to treat the consumers that put money into your app before it got as popular as it is now. Update*** 4-2-18 I still feel cheated, the amount of users that are asking for cross platform compatibility is minimal. Anyone using iOS can re-download via previous purchases to use the original paid app on iPhone or iPad. Most users that use iOS are not asking for cross compatibility as they prefer the Apple echo system. The bare minimum you as developers could of done for your supporters that started your success by buying the original app is giving complimentary ad free option to those that purchased the original pro app. The subscription based model just spits in the face of those that brought you success. What about when iOS changes their file system again in the future and the original paid app is no longer supported. Those that paid are just out of luck?
Flight Radar
by Aquamisty on 2020/04/17 19:07
My previous version of FR24 was much better than the new version. In 3D view, pertinent flight data were displayed and constantly updated on screen especially track, altitude, speed and vertical speed. Track was especially helpful to know which runway was chosen. The new version shows none of the flight data on screen requiring having to leave the 3D view. These data should be displayed on screen like the old version. The new 3D view has a much slower response on my iPhone (6S) and terrible color display with the runway and highways appearing washed out while with terrible detail. The new version should be updated to provide the option to view the old version display along with the new 3D view. This app would be great if the 3D display could more accurately track a plane especially while landing. My experience is that the view shows the plane landing along the runway centerline about one in ten landings. Most landings are left and occasionally right of the runway and frequently too high. The creators of this app would get my highest praise if the landing accuracy could be improved. With the suggested changes and improvements, this app would be my favorite.
Goodbye Flight Aware Hello Flightradar24!
by Kalei75 on 2018/01/13 03:47
I’m an aviation geek and loved Flight Aware but for the longest time, I always wished I could know the tail numbers and registration information of an aircraft I was viewing from my lanai. I would often go online, look up all of the registration numbers of a particular aircraft in a fleet and try to find which one I was looking at. I remarked to a friend of mine how I would look up these aircraft and that’s when he introduced me to this app. Now I can easily point my iPad or iPhone at an approaching or departing aircraft and find that information. I also love the feature of being able to see recent and past photos of that very same aircraft! Just a remarkable, easy to use app! I’d HIGHLY recommend this app to ANYONE that’s an aviation geek like me or for someone a lot more advanced such as pilots, ground crew and flight crew.
Undo update
by Monkey8snow on 2020/12/06 19:35
I love this app. I use it to help track inbound flights of people I’m picking up to know when to start heading in to the terminal. No waiting allowed inside LAX so it’s real time flight info and the ability to watch planes taxi to their gate is perfect to keep lanes clear and then swoop in as they’re walking out. It’s such a wonderful tool to have. BUT.... Whatever you did yesterday to fix what I didn’t know was broken, please undo it. I can no longer see helicopters, specifically police helicopters. There’s one buzzing around over my head and I’d prefer to know if it’s LAPD or Fire or Medical or whatever without having to go outside and look up. This was such a huge part of my love for this app. Please put it back and I’ll let it slide when a helicopter icon is used but a picture of a plane comes up when you select it. And vice versa. Love the loons and the occasional ground vehicles. But please put the cop choppers back up. Thanks
Rip off!
by Fototico on 2018/09/27 22:47
Hey developer, how about if you let people that paid you use the new app ads free and with the same basic functions we had in the paid app we purchased? Even if all the other new features do not work. That is OK. Give me what I paid for and I’ll be happy. I don’t need the new features, whatever those are. - I purchased the original Flight Radar. Me and others made it possible through our purchase of the app to get the app to where it is today. Now greed has taken over the developer and they want a month or yearly subscription. Hey refund the money you took for the original app and we’ll call it even. How about that? To add insult to injury, they are offering a “free” three month subscription to their service. Really? No sweetie, it is not “free,”it cost us what we paid for the app. I do have to give the greedy developer credit for at least giving us old timers at least three months of “free” service. Because unlike other developers that have become greedy, at least they gave us three months rather than just giving us the finger.
If your a plane spotter, you need this app
by RefuseKid15 on 2018/07/15 22:20
Flightradar24 is an outstanding app for those who have a love for aviation or an average business traveler who wants to keep track of their flight’s departure and arrival times. And anyone in between. Personally, I’m a plane spotter, it’s one of my favorite hobbies, and having the power to track in bound flights and departure times at any airport on Earth in my own hands whenever I want is just incredible and super handy. And this app does more than simply track flights, it tells you their altitude, speed, heading, distance and time from destination, it tells you a specific aircrafts age, when it was built, and an aircraft’s history of recent flights, as well as give you alerts on specific flights that you can personally select with your finger tips.
Option to hide sidebar; hold focus
by LAX20531 on 2017/12/05 22:26
I love everything about this app. It definitely can consume a lot of time depending on your interests. I paid for the Gold option and feel the app differentiates itself more than its closest competitor. Enhancement request: The ability to hold focus on a selected and temporarily slide or suppress the sidebar. I love the sidebar but it does consume a lot of space so having a toggle for this would be helpful. Finally I’d remiss if neglected to see the negative reviews from those who previously purchased the app. It is not reasonable to expect an app purchase is tantamount to a lifetime license including all upgrades. There are real costs associated with development and operating costs for data, systems. and support. That’s capitalism at work. I’d much rather pay for the app than see it go away. The devs set their pricing based on its value and the competing marketplace.
In a word, “Wow”!
by Mr_Movie on 2018/05/10 17:57
I was curious about all the noise I was hearing caused by low flying commercial aircraft overhead. I discovered this app in the process of researching airport flight information. The free version of the app is amazing. I can identify what is flying over, how high it’s flying, where it is coming from and where it is going. Hats off to the developers! The “bummer” is that if you want to unlock some of the other cool features you have pay for a subscription. I would gladly pay a few dollars for this app, maybe more, but the subscription model is deal breaker for me (-1 star for that). Others have commented that the app could be purchased outright in the past and the subscription service is relatively new. I know businesses need to make money, but a subscription is not cool with an “app” in my book.
AR BEEN BROKEN FOR YEAR PLUS
by OwlSeeing on 2021/07/31 04:49
AR has been broken (showing the windows with plane info popping up in top left corner barely showing just a sliver of the window cant quite click it) been like this ever since i first downloaded it for iphone 6splus n now on my iphone 11 pro max and both ipad 7(i think ) n ipad 12.9 newest. So more than a year most likely 2 or three years i noticed it. Been paying for this app yearly for awhile n just kept assuming itd be fixed but never did so i might look elsewhere to see if i can get full years worth of advertised features somewhere else....still no response on this more than 2 year long issue andi notice handful of others saying same thing.... this will be my final subscription, i have waited long enough. 3 plus years gold member user (on diff icloud accounts at one time i had two gold memberships year long on 2 diff iclouds.. but 3 plus years for me using..yes i am a sucker lol )
Please reign in some of the advertisers
by Rpgustavson on 2020/08/04 19:16
Except for some oddities, such as planes of landed several miles off the runway, the app helps me understand what’s going on in my area as there are a lot of police flights and I’m near an airport. I understand and appreciate that the free version has to be supported in some manner, But please reign in some of your advertisers such as the hero wars and Township. Having to suffer through what seems to be five minutes of mostly misleading before being able to go on, you still have to be very careful about touching any place on the screen as it will take you to the download webpage. I have absolutely no problem with advertisements as I cannot afford a subscription, and I have even followed up on a few, but these advertisements in particular make me dread using the application.
great app! some suggestions
by _ricq_ on 2018/07/04 14:32
this new Flightradar24 is a great improvement over the previous version, the “AR”-style feature is useful, especially with lots of traffic and low visibility for IDing aircraft, the 3D view is a strange waste of space imho. some suggestions: as a Ramp Agent at an airport, I track several flights at once. it would be useful to have a bookmarks-type folder or list where I can add several flights to track and switch between quicky, without having to re-search or go through search history. perhaps also having the featue of adding my own notes, such as parking locations, who is assigned to duty, etc. also useful would be the ability to sort said flights in this hypothetical folder by distance, STA, ETA, etc.
Once a 5 star App now a mediocre 1 star App
by GevouxMedici on 2021/02/13 23:52
I am so disappointed in your decision to go down this road of turning this once great app into an advertising billboard. Not only did you add these terrible ads you added ads that specifically do not allow you to exit out them, and purposely make you have to click on the ad in order to close it. Also you have made these ads appear in a strategic way where a user will accidentally click on a ad when trying to open something completely different on the app. SHAME ON YOU FOR RUINING A ONCE GREAT APP. I’ve even in the past spent money on the app to unlock the features before you decided to turn a great app into a trashy one, because back then, I respected the app and enjoyed using in, but now I wouldn’t even spend a cent on it because of your decision to choose greed over providing a consumer friendly app. If you want to make money, then simply charge a one time download, instead of ruining the whole app.
Ads make app unusable
by NnnIIiiCCKKk on 2019/01/10 02:51
The app is by far the best at tracking planes, and being able to filter by airport, airline, equipment, etc. my favorite is the option for arrivals only as well as departures from specific airports. Now to the bad: while I’m perfectly fine with the ads, got to get paid somehow. There is one major design flaw, when you use the search button to filter, when tracking your intended flight on the live view map. The banner on the top blocks the menu buttons on the top, meaning your only option is to force quit the app every time instead of using the back button behind the ad. Maybe that was the purpose but ads aren’t supposed to break the app which this doing. Upgrades are supposed to entice you gain more information with in the app; not make it work how it was intended.
Great App
by MOMS SUNSHINE GIRL on 2019/06/06 04:44
I’m sure happy I discovered this. I love aviation and it’s so nice to be able to see what planes are flying in my area. My niece is a flight attendant and it’s a lot of fun to see her land and take off at the various locations. Also, the other night my dad who lives outside of Las Vegas was watching plane after plane fly in to McCarran airport - or the string of diamonds as it is often called. I was able to look on the app and tell him the description and size of each plane that was flying overhead that he could see, as well as the ones coming. We both had a lot of fun and he called the next night and wanted to do it again. There are so many advantages to having the app and these are just a few. I also appreciate being able to be alerted when a plane has in emergency situation. It would be nice to know what the emergency is but at least this is nice to have. It seems to freeze occasionally when planes are landing or taking off but overall seems to be very accurate. I’ve tried other aviation apps and this seems to meet my needs the best.
Caveat emptor on trial upgrades
by Too big to fail NOT on 2020/11/03 04:52
I use this App for tracking my own airplane flight. It's really quite useful for this application. I can play back my flight up to several days after I land. It displays on a map. I decided to see if I could make it display on an aviation sectional map and found an option for ATC (air traffic control) boundaries, but I had to upgrade to gold. There was a selection in the APP on my iPad where I could do a 7 day free trial. Selecting that took me to the Apple App store, however, when I selected that option my card was billed and Apple would not refund my purchase. I wouldn't have minded provided I got the map with real ATC boundaries such as Class B airspace, but those options with enhanced information are worthlless. What is needed is an ability to overlay aviation sectional charts in place of street maps in order to make a flight tracking tool useful. I am surprised the developers don't understand this.
iPhone ok...iPad no way
by BaubR on 2019/08/09 21:22
This app was clearly written for the iPhone. When you use the iPad in portrait mode, the flight information takes up the whole left-hand side of the screen which gives you half of the screen for the map. If you get rid of the flight information box on the left-hand side of the screen, you stop tracking your flight. Why the developers didn’t allow you the ability to slide up and down the aircraft information to show it or hide it and give you almost a full screen of the map, as they did on the iPhone, is a great question. If they did that, my reading for the iPad version would go to a 4 or even a 5. Thus, my two star rating is for the iPad version and I would give it a four for the iPhone version. I guess the intent is not to have you be able to look at a large view on an iPad.
If tracking a flight is all you need...
by KainhaCC on 2018/04/22 05:47
...then this app is for you! I downloaded this app when my children traveled abroad for their vacation. Being the over-concerned person/mom that I am, I thought I’d feel a *little* better knowing where they were while in flight. Did it help calm my nerves? You betcha! Was I less concerned that they were so far away from me and that there was nothing I could do about it? Not a chance! I was really impressed with how accurate the information was. For instance, for one flight it said it would land 20 min early than the ETA from the airline so (naturally) I called them as soon as the app said the plane had landed and they called me back within 5 min! Satisfied! 👍🏻
Perfect for the Aviation Enthusiast!
by csmith980 on 2021/04/23 15:40
This is hands down the best app on the entire App Store. It gives you all of the flight details you could ever imagine and then some. They don’t constantly force the upgrade subscription options on you if you’re using the Basic version, however I would highly recommend upgrading because it makes the app that much better (if that’s even possible!) I pay for the Gold subscription and it’s worth every penny. I would highly recommend this for my fellow aviation enthusiasts, frequent travelers, or just someone who wants to look up at the sky and know where a plane is headed!
Great but has one problem
by Sevyn13 on 2021/09/01 14:11
When you are in the main screen you can choose the type of map you want to see, such as road, terrain, or hybrid. But when you select an aircraft and do a playback of its previous flights the only map type that shows is terrain with no city names and is practically useless. When I’m trying to find out where my aircraft has flown, being able to see cities, borders and roads and their names would be helpful. Please add this feature and I’ll give 5 stars till then you only get two. Any update on this? Seems a very easy fix to add this in. Technically you aren’t even adding another map, you are just making it available when on the flight play back screen. I’m considering canceling my subscription over this and finding another app that does what I need.
Great information
by Greg DoubleU on 2019/09/13 07:19
I’ve often found myself struggling to remember how to get Siri to show me a list of nearby aircraft. Now, I don’t have to! It’s all here. Since I’m not a pilot, I don’t know if there’s more info than what I have here in this app, but I’m satisfied to see what details I do have access to. It’s a great way to check out what’s visible and get to familiarize myself with recurring flights. The only details I haven’t found yet is more specs on the particular aircraft, like the normal # of crew onboard and max passenger capacities. I also enjoy knowing the max speed and altitude. Short of those, I’ve found everything I know about! Great app! To me, worth the cost!
Awesome app! UPDATE- New glitch though! App “forgets” I have a subscription?
by QueenoftheBigBlue on 2021/06/29 07:21
I’ve been using this app for almost three years in my plane spotting hobby, and it truly is unparalleled. Hands down the best out there! However lately, although I have a Silver subscription, sometimes, when I open the app and tap a plane for details, I see ads- I shouldn’t since I have a sub. Is this a glitch? It’s as though the app “forgets” I have a subscription- I go into the app and see ads when I tap a plane. The sub symbol will be white, not gold as it should be. Again, I have an active sub, paid till next year, so why is that happening? Great app though! ✈️🛩
Love it
by Noah3739 on 2019/04/03 14:27
I love this app! I live right next to the Grand Rapids airport, so I like to see what plane I’m looking at. It tells you all kinds of info like type, flight plan, tail number, and airline. Although sometimes the AR doesn’t work great, because I can see a plane, but it says it’s in a completely different direction. One thing I would like to see on this app would be plane crashes highlighted. Other than that, it’s a fantastic app. One more thing, I want have a filter for flight diversions. Okay, so the AR is working much better now, and O figured out that emergencies are highlighted. But, one thing I want next would be to see reports of what’s going on if at all possible on the emergencies.
Amazing!!!
by Batman2287 on 2018/10/03 04:36
What an amazing app! I followed my wife’s flight all the way to DIA and even watched her taxi to the gate. I knew she was at Concourse A. I knew when she stopped because her speed reached zero. Sure enough, she let me know she was there right at that moment. I also knew the flight was going to be early because it tells you when the plane will arrive as you follow it. This app is awesome and it is very accurate and in real time!!! Great Job on this app! I wish it was one price to upgrade instead of subscriptions. I would pay for it but I won’t do subscriptions. I don’t know if you can have an alert set when the plane lands, but that would be an awesome feature. Thanks!!!
Too many advertisements
by Closetmonst3r on 2019/02/24 15:20
I fell in love with this app years ago and paid (don’t remember how much) for the ad free version, which was a one time payment. Fast forward a few years and Flightradar24 updates/upgrades their app to a subscription based model and plasters their app with advertisements. I realize they need to make money but what happened to my payment I made? Basically they tossed all of us loyal users (who paid) out the window. They didn’t even offer some sort of discounted upgrade for people who already paid for their original app. I, in my opinion, feel they made a mistake in doing this. First, I’m sure the majority of Flightradar24 users are aviation enthusiasts, which means we enjoy using the app but by no means need to pay for increased functionality. I’m not even sure who WOULD need to pay monthly, for ever, to use this app. I certainly can’t justify paying even a couple dollars a month (it’s more than that for their lowest monthly subscription), to use their app maybe, on average, 2 times a month. I decided to give a review and give one star, when I opened up the app this morning and was greeted with a full page ad, not just a rotating ad banner on top or bottom. I hope this review makes it to Flightradar24 HQ and they rethink their revenue model.
Airline Pilot recommended!
by AAL787 on 2018/12/31 15:29
I absolutely love this app. I’m a captain on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner for the largest airline in the world. To see and use this technology is so enjoyable and engaging. No matter where you are you can look up at the sky and be able to see what kind of airplane is flying overhead and where it’s going. The additional flight parameters and information are also entertaining to see. When I’m waiting for an inbound flight I can quickly check its position to coordinate my own outbound preparations. If I could make any improvements to this app I would create the ability to tag a future outbound flight to text me any delay notifications. I’d also create the ability to tag specific outbound airline and fleet so I’ll know if all of the airplanes of my fleet and base have departed or are delayed. It would help when I’m on call and could prepare for possible re-crewing of an aircraft. In any case, the developers of this app have done an absolutely wonderful and commendable job and I happily send my regards and compliments on a job well done!
Personal ATC
by SKA350 on 2019/01/06 18:54
For someone who has more than a passing interest in aircraft, this is a must. I know the display “jumps” from time to time (install your own radar on the roof maybe), and it doesn’t tell you “everything” about “every” aircraft but if ya go out to the airport sometime (Dallas/Fort Worth) you can see the aircraft coming from Tulsa and Tulagi, from St. Louis (MO) and Saint Petersburg (Russia). I live 9 DME on the Ft. Worth (FTW) Localizer. It’s interesting to know who’s landing (and who doesn’t have the needle centered) when I’m outside working in the yard and just sitting on the patio having a beer I turn the iPad orienting to North and can see everybody in that portion of sky. OK, maybe I need to get a “life” but this is a fun Ap!
Favorite app!
by Nathanielllll on 2018/05/02 01:18
I love this app. I geek out with it all the time, causing much embarrassment to my wife in front of friends. App correctly identifies planes and helicopters every time. Flight and plane history is super interesting, and it's a great app to have while traveling as you're able to see where your plane is even when it's several legs away. If you want to know what you saw from the plane on your trip, use the flight playback to see exactly where you went. The uses for this app are endless for nerds like me. Only suggestion: flight playback map currently only has a satellite view. Please add options for hybrid or standard map views!
I am likely leaving this app
by jdawgnoonan on 2018/06/06 21:22
I have enjoyed using the version of this app that I paid for, but I am not interested in paying a subscription of $0.83 a month just to get rid of ads. I do not care about all of the features, I just like seeing the radar. I am insulted by the lack of an ad free version that I can pay less for to just access the radar. $0.83 a month is more than I am willing to pay for that, since I do not care about the other features and I only used this app a few times a year anyway, therefore I will be getting rid of an app that I have enjoyed when I did use it. I do not allow ad supported apps to exist on my device. I am giving you three stars because your app is good, but I am disappointed and would like to give you two.
Great app for ADHD people like me who love aviation 😆
by DiamondGirl💎💩😎 on 2021/09/26 16:44
Okay, so this review may not be entirely what it’s meant to be for, but I get bored often and get easily distracted. Whenever I hear a plane or helicopter or something I literally drop everything to look where it is, and then proceed to find it on the map being the nerd I am. I personally only use it for looking at planes, so I don’t really have a use for the subscription, so I cant say much on it. I often find myself staring at this app very frequently, the most I have ever is 27 minutes, haha. It’s a great app, highly recommend especially for people like me😁
Need to change weather settings
by eepisski on 2018/02/05 16:57
Good app. Noticed barometric pressure is in hpa. Wonder if could change to inches of mercury. Also, we have a lot of regular small aircraft, carry about 10-20 people flying over. I live by the Mackinac Bridge. Mackinac island is 5 miles out in Lake Huron, currently lake is frozen, so have flights flying people back and forth from county airport to island airport. Wondering if developers could show smaller aircraft as know they show drones in some areas. We do have bigger airports in Pellston and Sault ste Marie which are 20 and 50 miles away respectively. During winter months Mackinac County Airport in St. Ignace is busier than Pellston and Chippewa County airports combined.
A Great Application.
by Assfjkl1234 on 2020/12/31 17:09
As the title says, this is a great App. There is an incredible amount of information contained here. I held a private pilot license some years ago and if this application was available then it would have been a great learning tool for ground school. That’s in addition to the vast amount of current live information available now. My recommendation is everyone should download this application if you find one better suited to your needs use them both. I want to thank my son in law for turning me on to this very fine application. This is a Richie🐝 “straight up” review.
Would like to see another particular filter...
by cdw25si on 2019/09/16 14:43
I have had the paid version of this app on IOS for a few years and do love the app. I live in an area where we have the only level 1 trauma center for up to 250 miles. I am also a Firefighter/Paramedic and have flown in medical helo’s. I would love to see a filter where in the app you can select the type of aircraft to watch include in it an option for various makes of helicopters like the Eurocopter H130, H135, H145, Bell 429, and other Bell medivac helo’s. I’m also having problems with being alerted for the aircraft I have saved in alerts. Otherwise I love the app. I use it in conjunction with scanners and the Live ATC app.
Great app....but!
by Mrneely357 on 2018/01/03 21:55
I think this is a wonderful app. I have used it on many many occasions because I am an airplane enthusiast and I like to go down to the airport and watch planes fly in and fly out. When I am about to fly for vacation I can definitely count on finding out if my plane is on time or delayed or when I have Friends or family flying in I can track their flights coming from their destination. But, the only thing that really frustrates me is when I use the 3-D view how buggy it is when it gets down to the airplane about to land somewhere around two or 3000 feet and the app either Locks up or the airplane goes nuts and is all over the map. That aspect is very buggy. Could u please look into a fix for that. Thank you!
Used to work
by linleyj on 2019/04/11 06:37
I have been extremely happy with this app until about a month ago. I thought the problem was with something on my end because I would load the app and it would show no planes in my area. I would move the map a little to view Houston and it would show none (which never happens). I uninstalled and reinstalled the app thinking it was a glitch. It fixed it for a little while but I am now having the problems again. It used to allow me see what kind of helicopters were flying over and now more than half the time not even all planes show up. I pay for the gold version because I enjoy getting to see what’s going on but now it seems I am just throwing the money away. When I attempted to “contact the developer” by clicking that option it took me to a website that didn’t work either!
Did the upgrade, had the newest version
by 123bob897 on 2018/11/22 00:28
So I did the upgrade, and had the latest paid version and paid for the Silver. It gave me the high resolution 3D showing the cockpit view and the view just behind the aircraft. Really slick, loved it. A few days later my iPhone showed I had App Store upgrades available on a few of my apps, including FlightRadar. So I did the upgrades. It upgraded my FlightRadar back to my original FlightRadar24. I no longer have the enhanced features of the paid version, which I assume I’m still paying for. Whats going on here? Likewise when I go to iTunes it doesn’t show I’m paying for anything. It seemed to have reset everything back to the free version. Really disappointed in your product.
Best app for aviation geeks
by GeekyAviation on 2020/09/28 22:10
This app is absolutely incredible. I live pretty close to a major airport, so planes fly over my house all the time, and it’s really cool to see the planes info, and seeing where it came from around the world. I use this every single day. I honestly haven’t really ran into to any major problems. The developers did a wonderful job. You can really tell they are trying to make they’re customers happy, not just trying to get money. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about downloading. Great app, keep up the amazing work.
Terrific Support
by StanSien on 2019/07/04 02:03
I love this app for all the information it provides about flights. One of the best features is the augmented reality where you can lift your phone to the sky and it shows the flights above and then you can click to find out more. For some reason it started not to work. I contacted support and within the next day I had my answer. Seems my settings on the phone changed and after a few clicks I was back to observing the flights in my neighborhood. Love the Pro version. Worth the price and I like to know I support the developers.
Great app
by ajj093 on 2019/01/12 07:33
I use the app for work since I work at the airport, having the notifications when the plane leaves (notification must be set up specifically for certain flights like tail number or flight number or airline company) is a awesome feature, knowing where the plane is when it’s taxing is a huge plus. Of course there’s a little lag between the plane and the phone showing it’s location but over time it’s been getting better. If only you can upload pictures of planes instead of going to the 2nd website they use and uploading pictures there.
Ads make me grumpy
by Samiboarder on 2021/07/15 05:22
As a paying customer for the past few years, I don’t understand the switch to extremely annoying full page ads that interrupt what you are doing! Mayyybe a banner ad could be excusable, but this latest update is awful. Please reconsider this change or else I will have to reconsider using the app. Other than that, this app has been very nice to use and packed full of features. *update* The previously mentioned changes were removed soon after so I am back to being happy with the experience. Thank you to the development team for listening.
If you are interested in this app, just get it.
by Aviris on 2021/10/19 22:23
What’s not to like? I have no reason to have this app other than curiosity. I liked the first version and this is better. More than most apps I get the need for a subscription model since it is providing an information service that requires constant attention. And what great information. The UI is pretty straightforward considering all the data it is possible to view. Like airplanes? Enough to want to track them, identify any you happen to see flying by? Get the app already.
Surprisingly good for the free version!
by BookerTAS on 2020/05/09 19:55
Interesting to use, as I’m near a small airport and under the flight paths of larger commercial airlines. The only negative (and it’s not significant) is how many flights list “N/A” for the origin of the flight when you can clearly see it by the line showing from where it came. Other than that, no complaints. While sitting outside, my girlfriend will often point at a passenger jet and ask, “where do you think that’s going?” I usually make up something unlikely. Now I can tell her for certain!
Way of the World
by iloveiphone123 on 2019/06/28 14:17
I purchased this app when you bought a full subscription before the “member levels”. Before developers were able to charge higher cyclic prices. The early days of Apple. 99 cent apps to 3.99 apps, never more than 9.99 one time charge. When apps were making life more easy for users while the big bucks weren’t making someone wealthy. Of course, this was not really the way of this world. No...just early in the iphone app era. Commercialism has set in now...great apps are charging subscription fees...its becoming big business...and everyday users looking for information apps to make life a bit easier or entertaining have to pay the subscription fees. Always comes down to money. I used to love this app along with others....just pitiful.
Okay but
by kevcg on 2021/05/17 15:21
It’s okay since I have cousins who are pilots and flight attendants so I can easily track their travels yet the only thing that bothers me is when their flight is delayed it doesn’t give an update for the departure or arrival how inconvenient because what if you are a connecting passenger and don’t have the right info your going to miss your connection also the ads are annoying I have to close out every time then reopen the app to continue the process wish it could just be a completely free app instead of paying all the time it’s getting really annoying.
How to treat your customers
by fishbomb3r on 2020/04/26 15:15
Dear Developers, In business you have to treat your customers with respect. There are many other one star ratings due to your decision to change to a subscription model. You probably had good reason. Maybe the free data that you get from the Government wasn’t good enough for you. Maybe, like Accuweather (check out Last Week Tonight), you thought the value you add to this public data was far beyond what everyone else does. Maybe your data feed, which continues to cost less than when you started, was starting to starting to strain under the features you kept adding. That’s fine. Whatever it was, there were those of us in the traveling public who paid for an app that no longer functions. Now, I’m not saying that I want to start a class action against you with what appears to be several thousand others. What I am saying is that you have an opportunity to make things right first. We, your loyal users, who have recommended your app in airports, bars and disgusting rental cars from Fox Rental Car deserve better. Please return our function version without ads. Thanks
Love this app.
by CaptainLyday on 2020/04/07 21:37
Hello. I really LOVE this app! I use this app mutiple times a day and it is so cool to trick my friends into wondering how I know that a plane is flying over their house. There is just one feature that I really wish could be in the app. It would be so cool if we could filter timetables at airports to a certain airline or aircraft. If im looking for something specific at a busy airport like ATL, it would take me forever to scroll through the entire thing just to find one flight. I would truly enjoy this filter feature and use it quite often.
