Description

Uncover the mysteries of live air traffic in one beautiful and easy to use app. Is it a bird? Is it a plane?! If it’s the latter, Plane Finder can tell you exactly which plane it is.

Plane Finder is incredibly easy to use and utterly fascinating. It enables you to see live air traffic patterns with real-time tracking of almost any plane you’re interested in, and in addition to the aircraft’s location you can see its current altitude, its speed and where it’s heading.

Get live information on flights - super handy when travelling. You can even be alerted when a particular flight is heading your way, which is useful if you’re trying to catch sight of rare birds such as the Airbus A380.

Switch to incredible 3D flight tracking anytime from any aircraft, airport or location on the map seamlessly to view air traffic as never before.

There’s a superb augmented-reality option that enables you to point your camera at the sky and see details of the aircraft that’s overhead, and with full support for iOS’s Dark Mode it’s just as handy for night flights as it is for daytime ones.

It’s all great fun, but it’s also very practical: in addition to flight tracking there’s extensive airport information, which supplements live arrival and departures with live weather reports for hundreds of airports.

Plane Finder receives real time ADS-B and MLAT signals sent by aircraft to transmit their positional data to land based receivers. This technology is faster than traditional radar and is used for air traffic control and navigation. You can check our worldwide flight tracking coverage for free at www.planefinder.net

My Very Favorite App

As a child and later enlisting in the U.S. Air Force, I’ve always had a fascination for airplanes. Though I’m not a pilot myself, I’ve often just driven to the airport to watch the planes take off and land and wondered where the planes are coming from and where they’re headed. In recent years I bought a home with a rooftop deck and a panoramic view. I now see 4 airports from my vantage point and see countless craft in the skies every day. A few months ago I discovered “Plane Finder” and knowing what the planes (and helicopters) are, their livery, origin, destination, speed and altitude, has been fascinating, informative and truly enjoyable. About 3 months ago I decided to eliminate the ads and became a subscriber (along with my partner). I am SO glad I did! I am now able to see where any given craft has been previously, how many passengers it can hold, and much more. I’m learning more about the speed, altitude, and navigation styles each has. It has become a wonderful and fascinating pass time. Thanks, Plane Finder!

Misleading/Pro account unmanageable

It worked. But only once. When I returned to the app, clicked the icon, I was taken back to the beginning of the purchasing process. The app then freezes. I waited 30 minutes with a frozen screen before I completely exited the app and tried again. The third, fourth and even a fifth attempt to use the app again went just as the second attempt - frozen screen, no way to access the app or my account. A few moments ago I cancelled my subscription through a series of random, frustratingly pushed option buttons and icons. Now I don’t trust I won’t be charged for attempting to buy the Pro version and then cancelling my subscription after being subscribed for only an hour of the two week free trial period because the entire purchasing process seems fatally flawed. Trying to use this app has been extremely frustrating and definitely disappointing.

Uninstalled.

Unfortunately, a pretty good app turned into garbage with multiple forced unstoppable video ads which take control of your device for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. People need to uninstall any app that requires that you allow it to hijack your device for their business model. Perhaps maybe developers would get the hint and make better apps that have value, so you don't have to resort to such a bush- league tactics. REPLY- No, I would not. You're out of your mind if you think this app is worth having to pay a perpetual monthly subscription forever. Well, until you abandon this app and your customers and move on to an even more intrusive and expensive one, exactly like you did to the people who already paid for the app. The data it uses, you get free. It's from aircraft ADS-B data. It's like having to buy a subscription just for the data that is broadcast free from GPS satellites. You don't pay for the equipment installed on aircraft that's transmitting the data. The airlines and private aircraft owners pay for it, but you're trying to make money off of it. Not only that, but you're trying to trap unsuspecting users into a never-ending subscription that many will forget about and keep paying for years.

You may wish to take advantage of our 2 week free trial to experience the app without ads and to see if the subscription is of value to you. Happy to answer any questions, please email us at support@planefinder.net
