HOW DOES PLANE FINDER WORK?
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. ADS-B is not used by all airlines or aircraft, however this is changing and the number of aircraft tracked by ADS-B is increasing all of the time.

Ratings and Reviews
Have used this app for several years and, despite not having every bell and whistle available from some of the competition I’ve never been tempted to move elsewhere. I’ve found it as reliable as any others - more so, in fact. Tracking a friend’s flight today, most of the others reported its arrival instead of its diversion (that this one picked up).
My only issue is with airport flight boards - for airports I’ve compared, the web-accessible board from the airport is more reliable. Probably a problem with the feed used, so not an app issue but perhaps alternative feeds may be available.
Not as good as the earlier version
I love plane finder. I sit in the garden first thing with my tea and track the planes flying across us. The Stansted flight paths are routed round us or over us, and exotics from America bound for Amsterdam cross over us, too. I think about the lives of the passengers, their expectations, why they are travelling. I love the big, mysterious cargo planes, and the jerky, wandering flight paths of those little planes going into Cit of London.
But the latest version irritates me. I can no longer track a plane without having the box with all its information blocking half the screen. Much of the pleasure was following them quietly along. And that box is soooo big! So intrusive! And it no longer gives me the altitude changes in graph form. And the planes have those unnecessary cutesy shadows....
So I sit and grumble. The older version would have got 4 or 5 stars. This version gets 3. But I wouldn’t be without it.
Was Excellent... Now ads?
EDIT: Since the launch of the new 3D app I can’t open this app without having to waste time dismissing an ad for the new app, despite the fact that I’ve paid for this app and as part of the package of paying I was told there would be no ads. I understand the need to promote new apps, but every time I launch into this one is a bit much!
This app is one of the best ones! It sometimes screws up when you watch the airport but further out from it, this app is great. But when will we see iPad compatibility? I have to run it on my iPad in compatibility mode and I'm not a big fan of this!
Developer Response ,
Please can you email email@example.com I think something has gone a bit wrong with your installation and we would like to help you fix it. Also Plane Finder is a universal app which means it runs on your iPad too. I think you may need to delete and re-install your iPad version. Apple will recognise your previous purchase and you won't be charged again.
