Everything in the app are paid features. I couldn’t find one feature in the app that wasn’t paid, it’s terrible of Flighty to do this. If you want to charge for literally everything in the app (and a pretty expensive plan for what it is), you might as well just make the app paid on the App Store. Good apps aren’t like this. Considering that Flighty is Editors Choice on the App Store, I was expecting better than this. The only positive thing I could see in the app was the nice UI, clearly they wanted the app to be nice but didn’t think much through. I won’t be using this app again, because I’m not paying like $10 for a basic paid plan on an app this simple, it’s just not going to happen whatsoever.
I like the app and they are providing a bit more bang for the buck compared to other apps, but subscription fatigue is really. While i fully support developers and their livelihood (that's why i buy my apps), i think it's stilly that sign now i have around 15 subscriptions just from the AppStore. This really should stop and a better solution should be found/offered.
Update - Devs not said my claim was not true, oh boy! I wrote the review sitting third in line for take off as the captain announced it and from the gift of sight I was able to look out the window to see I was on the ground, while Flighty showed my flight half way to destination and with 45min on the journey. Flighty is not a live tracker, it’s follows a schedule and animates it. Don’t depend on this to plan trip. I write this 3rd in line to take off on my flight which flighty says took off 45 mins ago and is approaching destination.
Travelled from Thailand to france and the app wasn't reliable. Gate change, flight delay was updated very late or not at all. Changing planes in Oman, had to be dependent on the flight board. App again did not update. Going back to TripIt.
This is a great app thank you
Does not work well, incorrect information
Pro is way too expensive - especially as a subscription. Make it a reasonable, one time cost? Fine. But otherwise, no thanks.
Crashes repeatedly 3 seconds after starting up.
It says it’s a free app, but none of the features work without “pro.” Even if you wanted to buy “pro” there is no price information other than “14 day free trial.” Just say the price in the app store. Waste of time.
While the app has been built to be nice to the eye, hiding things like the age of the aircraft behind the Pro version is stupid. Other apps freely share past flight info so you can make a guess on how late your flight might be.
