This app is amazing!!!

I am 12 years old and LOVE aviation. When I become older I want to work for Southwest Airlines. Why Southwest Airlines? My mom works for Southwest Airlines and she is a flight attendant. I want to become a captain and fly all over the world.(well at least the US because Southwest only flys in the US and some of South America and Mexico) Now I love this app and I have only been at it for about 5min. I can track where my mom is headed and can track what airplanes are flying above my head and what not. I love the filters because I get to see only Southwest planes. The filters make it a lot easier. Overall, I love this app.

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.

Not worth the time

I cannot properly evaluate this apps functionality in free mode, because every 3rd touch of the screen pops up very annoying loud game ads. More than one; at least two every time. Yes, I know I can select free trial of full features to get rid of them. But I do not want to go through that hassle, including not forgetting to unsubscribe in 3 days if I don't want it.

The developer's high pressure business model is flawed and reflects a lack of understanding of his customer. He would get more subscriptions if he allowed the person to evaluate the app in peace without signing up for the free trial. Then after a few days, begin the harassment, if you must. But as it is, it is too disturbing to take the time to evaluate. I write this knowing he is reading these.

Too bad. It looked like it might have been a good about to have. But it is not worth the hassle.
