I like this app I have Flightradar24 by FAR this is better but the pro subscription for an year is WAY to much I would like you guys to make it at least 9 bucks and 99 cents NOT 40 bucks
The visualization of past and future travel is fun but the app is very slow to update Delta’s flight schedule.
Easy to track a flight on a date, no ad, great app
I recently tracked a flight that Flighty listed as cancelled when in fact it arrived as scheduled. Good thing I went to the airport anyway!!!
This is A review of the free version of Flighty. All those amazing capabilities you read about in other reviews: they are not available. The free version is one of, no, absolutely the most useless app on my phone. I would post a screenshot, but can’t. If this app seems attractive to you, realize you will have to pony up pretty soon.
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
