Pretty Cool

I’ve always enjoyed watching planes and flying them myself whether it be day or night. I always wonder where they’re going, what plane I am seeing, its altitude, speed, destination, etc. With this app, you can view all those things. You can track the plane to see its flight path to see if you will see it fly passed you or not. On the other hand, I live VERY close to railroad tracks and freight trains pass every 10 minutes or so. I wonder the same details about them and I’d love to have an app the same as Planes Live but for trains.

Not worth the money!

I originally bought this app because I live on the landing pattern for Detroit Metro (DTW). The first year I had the app, it was great! I could sit on my deck and watch (and track) flights coming in and out of DTW. Within the last 3-4 months however the app has gone downhill quickly. Planes will fly over the house and not show up on the tracker, wrong flight numbers, incorrect maps, etc. I have sent numerous emails to customer service regarding my issues and basically I was brushed off. I really can’t justify paying $4.99 a month for an app that doesn’t work properly.
UPDATE: Just received an email wanting me to reach out to the support team for help. Are you serious?!?!? The “support team” has been well aware of these issues for at least 3 months now since I have emailed them on 3 separate occasions. And only now they want to take me seriously (or try to save face) after I left a bad review of their crappy app. Sorry, too late. You have had ample time to correct the issue and basically ignored me. I’ve canceled my subscription and removed the app from my devices. Absolutely horrendous customer service.

Greedy developers

I paid for this app 10$ some years ago. Worked good but got sloppy over the last year or so. Now I know why. My purchase is not working anymore. Os14? I checked and found the new App. But now it is way overpriced. Who is using this App?-people that like to identify what is just happening above them. A fun thing. Nobody would pay for that reason more than the one time 10$. For exact flight information for travel planning, you have tons of free and better apps.
Then all so called free trials should never go automatically to a subscription. That’s in my opinion fraudulent. You accept a free thing. Never do you approve of to a payment plan. To call it a „free“ trial is misleading and should be illegal.
Sad, I liked this App. To change it during a pandemic where people don’t have the usual financial abilities is also not to smart.
Greed is never ending positive.

We're sorry for the trouble. If you have already activated Premium there should be no need to pay for the app again. Please contact us at and we will do our best to help you restore the purchase. Thank you in advance!
