Used to be good, now they’re just getting greedy and locking more features behind a paywall while introducing nothing new. myFlightRadar24 is just as good and you don’t need to pay for it, but there’s no mobile app.
While all of the advertised functions have worked on my trips, I often found that useful data is not available or not consistently available. The developer markets that you can see the plane's taxi and runway information. While that's nice and all, it is a good to have, not a must have. I'm surprised that the app doesn't support notification of when boarding starts and when you should head to your gate. Who cares about the taxi and runway info if one misses his/her flight (luckily I didn't rely on this app for that, otherwise I'll miss my flights). The other item that needs strong improvement is the lack of plane information for international airlines. I travel more internationally than domestically and I find that I need to look up my flight info using the "free" resources I have than this app. That's what's surprising. If I pay for a service, I expect to get much better information compared to free publicly available resources. Have potential but not there yet. Not for the serious travers, yet.
Too bad the pro prices are too high...
I would have never tried this app if it wasn’t for a segment I heard on Airplane Geeks. Very cool. Take my money!
Only wish it showed boarding times too. Also, personally I wouldn’t mind the invasive email scanning if it were available, but I supposed it can be worked around through the calendar import. For example, there are old flights that aren’t on my calendar but that I have emails for that were not automatically imported. Obviously that’s not important for day to day, but the archive is incomplete without them.
It’s great at what it does, but feel it has limited paid benefit for mainlines like delta, who provide a lot of this data in their own app. And as a pilot…. The “pilot grade data” is not really pilot grade data. if you’re using filed flight plans, time to waypoint, altitude, controlled airspace, etc would be cool.
I have used this app for a few years now. I find it very helpful, love the live tracking of the plane.
Would receive 5 stars if there was a watch complication.
Loved the animation of the plane and how you can also see other air traffic.
Great complete up to the minute flight information. Beautiful graphical interface! The only app that updates you on the Lock Screen continuously so you can see at a glance info you used to have to open and dig for! I am recommending it to all my family, friends and businesses associates!
