How it works
Most aircraft today are equipped with ADS-B transponders that transmit positional data. Flightradar24 has a rapidly growing network of over 20,000 ground stations around the world to receive this data that then shows up as aircraft moving on a map in the app. In an expanding number of regions, with the help of multilateration, we’re able to calculate the positions of aircraft that don’t have ADS-B transponders. Coverage in North America is also supplemented by real-time radar data. Coverage is variable and subject to change at any time.

    Sad, as I paid for this app a few years ago, I am not paying again plus a lot more than I originally paid. It looks like this is another app that will end up being deleted as its not used enough to warrent the annual amount it will cost. Shame really. They got in touch with me via email, no point really as they will not honour what has, already been paid on the old app. A company that scams its customers. I have deleted the app.

    gold apk I upgraded ages ago and paid for ad free and lots of other features...but then they changed it, so now I am at basic level again. I paid to have better access but with the way they change things they will keep you at basic level and they to get you to pay again. I will find a better app. I am angry at this form of deceit and theft. I want a refund... and will be reporting this app as dishonest.

  3. guest-avatar

    apk download Having paid for all the add-ons in the previous version I was annoyed at having to pay for the new product. I use the app a lot and so far am impressed at the number of clicks I now save as most of the info I'm interested in is presented concisely on a single screen. I opted for the 3 month silver trial as this provides what I'm interested in. I'll see how it goes but so far I think I'll let the subscription run at the end of the trial.

  4. guest-avatar

    download This is NOT a 'new' app! It may be improved i.e. appearance tweaks and few add ons but I am unhappy with new subscription model. Have been using this (paid) for years and have paid for most of the extras. Now if I want to continue using it I'm forced to "upgrade" to get rid of the ads I have already paid to get rid of! Basic subscription works out more than £10 a year. I don't use it that much to make it worth it. 3 months free trial for loyalty? Really? This is an enforced money grabing scam!

  5. guest-avatar

    app I've used this app for 5 years now and I love it people just don't realize that if you can think about it, It can be done. I love talking with someone and then seeing a jet in the air and then guessing with them where that jet is going and I break out my phone and I put it on binocular mode Point at the jet with my camera on the phone and wala tap on the jet and instantly all the information comes up, altitude, Speed, Direction, Ascending or descending. This is a wonderful app if you like that.

    flightradar24 - flight tracker / flugradar Like many others, I had previously paid for Flight Radar so I wouldn't have ads, and would have extra features. I'm disappointed in this bait and switch of removing the old app and offering a free trail of features I had previously paid for, then forcing a monthly subscription fee. Since you already have my money from my previous purchase, I will not be signing up for a subscription of the new app.

  7. guest-avatar

    apk cracked Reply Why not make another Pro app then? A subscription model is not compatible with most users. A one off payment is far better. You could have left the old app running without adds. The app may be different but the data the app retrieves from the server isn't! After paying for the old pro version, I will not be forced into a subscription! Stopping the older app from working for no reason other than to force people to enter into a subscription!

    pro This was a great app. I had the paid version and used it daily for years. Now we're forced over to the new app, we've lost the features we paid for unless we want to buy a subscription, and we get an ad at the top of every screen. Not a great way to treat your (now former) supporters.

    v8.1.1 mod.apk When you click on a plane it honestly is exactly where the plane says it is on the map and if you have your GPS on your phone it shows on the map where you're located and you go outside and the plane that your tracking says that it's flying over your house on the map you look up in the sky and it really is the great great app five stars I give it!!!👍👍

    v8.0.2 build 80200 mod Scrolling, zooming in/out map is very sluggish. Tried on several devices. Same result. The 3D view is bad. Really bad. Flightpath/route is way off for some flights. Weather icons are the exact same color and size as the aircraft icons. Making it more and more difficult to view when zooming in/out. Subscribed for a while now, and have seen no improvements to app. If this continues no choice but to cancel. Edit-Dev ignores feedback. Cancelled subscription.

  11. guest-avatar

    Been using the app for about 3 weeks. Many planes and flights are not shown in the app, even though I can physically see them overhead. Most flights are not listed on the app even when I'm at an airport and can see the planes landing, or taking off. (I'm based in South Africa.)

    I bought the pro app in January 2017 along with a few extra features thinking I wouldn’t have to pay anything else. A couple of months later, they released their new app. I didn’t think I would be able to have this one for free so I continued using the app I paid for. Since then, I’ve received various popups asking me to switch to the new app (very annoying). I didn’t want to given that there was a monthly fee associated with the new version and I was quite happy with what I paid for. They thought people would actually move away and get on board with the new app. Obviously this tactic didn’t work and they decided (after checking with their legal team for some time and Google Play’s T&C and refund policy) to force people to switch to the new app by essentially getting the pro app people paid for to stop working on 31 March (force because there aren’t many apps out there that provide the information I need). They could have honoured the sale and kept the pro app working. It’s not like anyone can buy it now. But no, this wasn’t enough and they wanted to maximise profit and get everyone to subscribe to their new app – whether that be direct monthly consumer payment or via ad revenue! In a way you can say that what I paid was actually a 3 year subscription service (if advertised in this way it would have been a more honest sale). However, the business practice is what annoys me with this company. Expect subscription prices to go up whenever they want/feel, more ads and who knows what else. I guess this experience has made me think twice about purchasing an app on Google Play (they weren’t very helpful, something the app developers were expecting).

  13. guest-avatar

    Bought the old app a while ago and used it a few times a year as it is fun and informative. However after paying for it, now I have to upgrade to a new app, now I get ads, less data and being forced into a subscription. How about the legacy users that funded this app to begin with? - Edit: update as contact was reached regarding my enquiry. Only offered 3 months free then back to the ads based version so it remains unresolved with the developer.

  14. guest-avatar

    This used to be a fantastic app but that's all changed now. After they've decided to charge for everything, it's become impossible to use. I even paid for all of their in app purchases, but obviously they were not happy and greed had the better of them. Now they charge you for everything and it's so expensive! Sadly I've decided to say goodbye after so many years... There are choices out there.

  15. guest-avatar

    Have just upgraded to the latest version. Some good improvements but the 3d view is dreadful and very hazy. In fact in hardly worth using it's so bad even though the quality setting is on high. I'm on the silver package and wondering if you need to go for the more expensive gold option but theres no information available to tell you that. If the 3d option was better I would give it 5 stars

  16. guest-avatar

    I've had this app on my previous device, and everything worked as expected. Although, my device does no support gyroscope settings, so the AR function is not usable. I don't know if there is a way to build a gyro into the app, like some games, or to not use the gyroscope function at all. Otherwise, this is a great app in terms of seeing other flights real-time and track them, and the AR function is really neat (on my old device) and is a notable feature for this app.

    Just as many says, purchased the old app. Great, but sad they want subscription. Old purchase only valid for a limit of time. Should have 3 years subsription for free as silver member, after that many probably are stuck and will pay. Now just a big disappointment and feel like we got screwed. I understand that you need money, but do it in a smoother way. Old supported customers should get more benefit than a newcomer. Great app, but hard to recommend it to friends and colleagues now.

    I paid lifetime for the old app and now you stop it from working and want me to subscribe monthly to a new app. Selling the pro version for a certain one time fee and then after a while make it stop working and force users to pay a subscription for a new version doesn't seem legit to me. Google must do something about this.

  19. guest-avatar

    I cant wait for all the paid subscribers to get screwed in about 10 years... honestly removed ads for life would have better for those who paid for the old app and all the features only to use it say what once or twice a month if that much. Instead for your dedication you get locked into a subscription that Bill's you after 3 months noice. Rather than have two apps side by side both on the new servers ima screw over my customers the same way seems like a great business practice. New app sucks...

  20. guest-avatar

    Do not buy this app! I purchased the old previous version of this app only to be told it was shutting down and I would need to purchase the new version to keep getting the same features. Milking customers as cash cows! I will not be spending more money again to receive the features I've already paid for! No loyalty to customers who funded the original app beyond a temporary period on the new (pay us again app). Disgraceful.

  21. guest-avatar

    Not only do you have ads everywhere in the app, making you money, but you lock down most everything you can, and only 3 uses of 3d! You were one of the first apps of this type, and you were a very good app, but you reward your customer base, which without them you would not succeed, by giving them nothing! You have like over a million downloads! You should reward customers for making you successful, not get more greedy! I'm sure subscription only would really pay! Uninstall

  22. guest-avatar

    Like so many others, I'm disappointed about the ending of the old Pro app, and annoyed that previous purchases won't carry over. I don't want new features for free, just the old ones I use regularly. I'm also annoyed that its become a subscription, and not a one off purchase - yet another thing to manage in life. I've purchased everything once already so on principle, I won't again. Unfortunately I'll be looking to other providers.

  23. guest-avatar

    I've been using this great app for years. I purchased most of the addons and have been very happy with this app. Suddenly yesterday, as I opened the app I get a big yellow warning that this app will stop working on March 30, 2020. WHAT! O of course they suggest you download the new version and you'll get to use it 30 days for free. WOW! BUT AFTER THOSE 30 DAYS, you will have to purchase a paid subscription at $4.99 per month. I DON'T THINK SO. GREED has set in with this app like so many others. I believe existing users should be grandfathered in. My rating has gone for years as 5 STAR to 1 STAR. I will be uninstalling this app. There are many good others out there.

  24. guest-avatar

  25. guest-avatar

    BUYER BEWARE OF THIS UNSCRUPULOUS DEVELOPER: The original ad-free version of this app was paid for by customers along with various add-ons. Now, the original app is being discontinued in favor of this subscription/ad supported version which has almost identical functionality. As a result, the developer has essentially stolen money paid by customers for the original app. This developer has destroyed my trust in Google's developer certification process and a complaint will be filed.

  26. guest-avatar

    Paid for the app and now the developers decided to disable the app and create another. So you get ZERO for your payment! Be careful and don't believe everything. It has been tested with these developers and they can delete the service anytime and don't pay back!

    excellent app for keeping track of flights everywhere in real time. pretty useful for checking out airport info and daily itineraries. when a relative of friend is traveling, I keep an eye on that particular flight on the map so I know when to leave to the airport.

    App is fine and new features are attractive. I am another former pro version user and am very disappointed that the other app is at its end of life (even though it's working just fine, it will now be turned off.) I think turning off ads should be a one-time payment of something reasonable like we paid for pro on the other app. If the new app will last ten years, the cheapest subscription will cost you $100 for those years-for silver level, as gold is $350. Subscription model is awful compared.

  29. guest-avatar

    I paid for the app when it was one-off purchase to get rid of the ads. Now they decided that it's not good enough and they want money every month. Really?? Subscription ?? Hilarious, I probably could pay again some one-off fee for some upgrades etc but there is no way I would subscribe... Looks like every company and their mothers want to have subscriptions these days. Won't happen.

    FlightRipoff24: Old app ending, new app = pay again. As with many others who have already paid for the app upgrades and have now received a prompt saying that the old app will cease to exist after March; I feel I've been ripped off. I don't want just 3 months free for something I have paid for already. I'm not going to take out a subscription as I only use the app occasionally and, frankly, it's way too expensive. ConAirtracker24

  31. guest-avatar

    Purchased the Pro version of the old app which they are forcing to close at the end of the month to try and force me to use this ad filled bloatware version which is subscription based. I'd rate zero stars if I could and will be using a different app from now on. Good job screwing over you old loyal customers.

  32. guest-avatar

    I love this app when it works correctly. But for months now, attempting to pinch out to expand the map causes it to lock up. Now, not only does the simple pinch out to expand gesture lock up the app, but it locks up my entire phone, and I am forced to do a hard reset to get it working again. I am running Android 9 and have a fast internet connection. The above is completely unacceptable.

  33. guest-avatar

    I bought flightradar more than 4 years ago. When I bought it, the license wroute that i have lifetime period. But now, I see that license will stop working on 30March. It is absolutely not a customer-oriented approach. Thanks for you i will never buy paid app again

  34. guest-avatar

    A warning comes up on opening stating that this app won't work properly unless I grant Google play services permission to access my 'phone. This seems to be utter rubbish! The app appears to work properly without the permission being granted but I wonder why access to 'phone function is wanted anyway!? Ps this is a tablet!

  35. guest-avatar

    Bait and switch. Purchased the old app in good faith - one time fee good for life. However the app dev not acting in good faith and completely disrespects all the original supporters of the old app by making the investment worth ZERO. Now they want us to pay all over again but this time on a monthly basis. NO WAY. PERIOD.

  36. guest-avatar

    This app is so good it is REAL the flights are up to date when a plane was flying over my house I went on the app and seen the plane on the map it but u have to pay for no ads to see the airline in 3d view and get it up to date on 3d view. 3d view is the worst one but it's grate for the map I would highly recommend this app

  37. guest-avatar

    As with the other recent reviews, I paid for the app to be ad free and now they are replacing the app in favour of a subscription model which leaves the old app high and dry. Would have been decent to transfer us over to new app for free or leave the old one functional even if unsupported. Pretty disreputable business practice, must be from the Sonos business playbook.

  38. guest-avatar

    I payed for the previous version, on March 30 it's done, download this one. It has ads now and a subscription? This is not what I expected and am unhappy with the outcome so far. Will this ever be resolved to most people's liking again?

  39. guest-avatar

    Prompted again that existing app will stop working in march and to upgrade. This new free version gives far less info than the old version unless you subscribe at stupid money. Pathetic service as have paid for old version upgrades which counts for nothing. They are just dumping their old customers in the hope they will hand over another pile of cash. Will look for an alternative app.

  40. guest-avatar

    It's a great app for tracking flights if you are at an airport or just wondering what that flight is above you. It has a decent accuracy and gives you plenty features for free. You can buy a few extra things that may come in handy if you are a pilot maybe (I'm not a pilot by the way) but all in all it is THE BEST flight tracker that i have found. Definitely worth a Download

    Like many others I have been bumped into an annual gold subscription. I only discovered this when checking my credit card account. I received no prior notification of this payment and when I went in to Google Play to cancel this subscription, there was no Flightradar sub. on my account. What on earth is going on!!. Will be uninstalling this app as soon as I have cancelled this subscription. Bit of sharp practice.

  42. guest-avatar

    Needs beta. Needs more development for what is charged. Should be able to add flight alerts for a particular date (in order to monitor friends/family/employees flights) not just a blanket alert you have to delete every time. Can't 'upgrade' from silver to gold, nope, want to uograde, pay full price for gold. A lot of changes need to be made & you need to look at development, because as it stands, it seems like you're counting the money & standing still. Businesses doing that, eventually die.

  43. guest-avatar

    Give better deal to old customers who have paid full subscription. Not free trials!! Don't screw us you greedy.... What about the customers who have paid already? What about continuing the old app for customers who paid for life subscription?? What you bragging about old and new technology. Does planes are started flying in outer space?? Does they now tracked by radars with horns? If these are different apps, Why are you telling us to upgrade yourself? Just say we are screwing you.

  44. guest-avatar

    Bought the Pro model some years back and have just received a pop up saying that it would be discontinued come end March 2020. Nonsense. The subscription... even for the lowest tier is unacceptably high for data and info we can get FOC with just a few more swipes online. Sorry guys, this was a poor decision on your part.

    I originally paid for this app and now I noticed that there had suddenly appeared an automatic annual gold subscription on my account. Luckily I noticed it and removed the subscription. I suggest that everyone who have bought this app also check their account info. I loved this app, but won't be using it anymore once my account seemingly rolls back to a "Basic" account in May.

    Ads ads and more ads. Another app that sold out to ads. Shame on you Flightradar24. You had such a good fanbase. Anyone else feel let down after paying for pro then no loyalty from FR24 click 'helpful - yes' maybe they will release a special edition for there original users. maybe...... just maybe...... maybe NOT.

    The great software/app. Scam . Having previously paid for an add free version of the app, which was perfect for my very infrequent use, I find this is no longer valid. Don't give us the old pony about the new app using new technology, you could have allowed pre registered customers to continue add free, instead of insulting them in this way. You can shove your monthly subscription.

    Thid app is not much diffrent from the old version. The only thing diffrent is the subsription model of €40 a year.I had already purchased a lot of add-ons which i will now lose? Sorry guys, very nice app but not in any way worth €40 a year, every year...

    Loved the original - works everywhere i travelled in the world! This one is even better! Question for you - if i have purchased things in the "old" app that is no longer a vailable as of March 31, 2020 - is there a chance my purchases can be transferred (logo's over planes, etc) to the new app, or do i have to repurchase? Thanks!

    Great app if you like aviation, or even if you just want to watch flights of relatives or friends. Free version gives more than enough features, and only $9.99 a year for silver upgrade. Support team replies fast and is polite and helpful. One of my favorite parts of this app is "featured flights," where FR24 will send you notifications (which can be turned off) about interesting flights; for example, the Kalitta Air flight that evacuated the American citizens from China. Definitely a 5☆ app.

    I think this app is very good, but I had purchased the pro app with several features previously, and now apparently there is no provision to compensate for that fact, when going to the new app, none. I do not appreciate being left out in the cold so easily by the app developers.

    I had problems with the app not connecting properly. Uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Finally got it to work. I did contact support but got it working before they could determine the problem. This app works great and I track aircraft flying around my home. Very interesting to know what those planes are. Thank you for a great app.

    Found this app very useful and interesting. I have used it to track friends flights and my own. Very good for checking departures of ones own flights when on holiday. Filters for airlines and flights are also usefull for decluttering busy screens.

    Same conclusion as most of the others, I too remember paying for this app years ago and the extras and now you want me to pay for it again to remove the ads that I paid to remove in the first place??? Talk about creaming it!

  56. guest-avatar

    Great app, feature rich and interesting information. A must for any aviation enthusiast. Also cheap subscription plans if you want to get rid of the, not too bad, ads or you can run a receiver to share data and get a free business class account.

  57. guest-avatar

    So, remember when you paid for the app? Yeah, now they've replaced it with one that has reduced features. You now need to pay again for the features that you already paid for. Do not download the new one until the old one stops.

  58. guest-avatar

    I paid for everything in the old app which is pretty much the same only, to be forced over to this app with built in ads unless pay for a subscription. And before you reply with, the old app technology has moved on. That is nonsense. The way planes are tracked hasn't changed.

  59. guest-avatar

    Want to track a friend's flight, halfway across the world? Track your connecting flight as it aproaches your airport? Or simply sit in your deckchair watching planes overhead and identify airplane type, airline, speed, height, origin and destination? For the premium version, you can even put yourself in the cockpit and enjoy the (simulated) view ahead. Brilliant!

    Been using Flight Radar now for several years. Used it to track flights of friends and relatives. It also keeps one up to date with new test flights and other flights in the news. Great.

  61. guest-avatar

    More accurate than anything else. Comprehensive information and always up to date to the second. Just been tracking two long distance flights. The only tracker that got it right.

  62. guest-avatar

    Had the previous version with one off payment and a few add-ons. Now requiring me to download the latest version as the older app will be discontinued. The new subscription service will suck. $$$$$

  63. guest-avatar

    Original app was excellent but now I am informed that it will stop working in March. Paid for various additional functions but now they will be removed with the only recompence being a three month trial on this new version. They didn't mention this when taking my money originally. Bit deceiptful I think so 1 star for integrity.

  64. guest-avatar

    Stef, you get one lowest rating because you are blowing off all of us who paid for the older app. I might not mind if you got rid of the ads for the that paid for the other. Ads and a subscription, not going to happen. Save your worn out, bs reply about 2009 blah blah blah. But I will pay attention to the ads so I can buy the competition's product. Go ahead & thank me for the support you are not getting.

    Be aware before purchasing ANY subscription from this company. I've previously made the mistake and paid for pro version plus with some extras, which will stop working by March 2020. This is not Netflix and paying montly/annually simply doesn't make sense as most people use this a handful of times in a year.

  66. guest-avatar

    "To make it easier for our users all your previous in-app purchases pop off. Buy it once again please". At least, you could keep an add-free option for those who have already purchased it before. Thank you for your client friendly model!

    Wenwesee. Very very good, it tells me all what i want to know, i have been using it for years, never a complaint and i do recomend it all the time.but i dont see flightnradar 24live as a game, its more serious and meaingfull than that .lets give an example, from the uk i can lets say i can plane spot anypart of the world,i dont always need to travell to an airport.

  68. guest-avatar



    I bought the main app and paid money separately for some features and now they named it "old" and made a new app with the same name but "new"!!....... complete bluffing, dishonesty and robbery they should give all their old clients the new app paid features which they paid for.

  69. guest-avatar

    Living in the flightpath of 6 airports, this app is my obsession. I cannot resist the impulse to try and identify the planes by sound and I love that this info is included on each flight. The flight path tracking and 3D view features are also very cool. At $1/month, the extras for Gold are definitely worth it! Great job developers.

  70. guest-avatar

    Flightradar24 is the best live flight app available. I have wasted money on other apps that part half as good has the Flight Radar 24 free app. I found was all of the other apps there is always a time delay but with this one it is truly live, this app also has live emergency notifications which are very interesting 2 monitor you cannot go wrong with this app.

  71. guest-avatar

    Outstanding performance all over this app. If you have even a small bit of curiosity about what's happening in the skies over your position, this is the app for you. It's got a great map to help you follow whatever airplane is above you, and surrounding areas. I look at it a lot...

  72. guest-avatar

    Seriously one of the coolest, most well done apps I've ever used. I just wanted to see what planes are flying over my house and this does that and a METRIC TON more. SUCH a cool app!!!

    as a frequent business flyer, I use this on the business side to keep track of things and also it's fun to watch yourself land if there's Wi-Fi on the plane. Mostly though, it's the recreational aspects that are blowing my mind. I can stand in my backyard on Long island and look up and understand the story behind each and every plane that goes over my head. Even the ones coming out of the local public airport are fascinating because some of them are these awesome private jets. Six stars if....

  74. guest-avatar

    Paid for old flightradar24 with 3d for free (old version) I now have to pay for it. Disappointed . Too many ad's. Pitty that it was changed. Maybe greedy app developers?, so someone's getting rich,

  75. guest-avatar

    I bought an ad-free flightradar (back in the days). Now in the new app you force me to have a subscription and you discontinued the previous version. This is a really dishonest business practice.

    Old app which I paid for discontinued and now given an app so full of adverts I dont want to use it and I am not going to pay a subscription for something I use once or twice a year... I'll look for an alternative

  77. guest-avatar

    I bought the Pro version some time ago now. They are cancelling the Pro app and forcing us to go into a subscription to maintain the free ad and custom alert features. Basically took the money and run away. I call this robbery and Google should stop this behaviour.

  78. guest-avatar

    Was VERY disappointed because I paid for the old version, still didn't get all the features, then they released a new version and are shutting down the old one! Money hungry crooks!

  79. guest-avatar

    I already paid for many features with the old app, and now you expect me to repay for a new app features. Quite frankly I think you should reimburse my money that I spent on the old app seeing as it's really no different than the new one.

  80. guest-avatar

    Fantastic 21st century app for real-time tracking of those beautiful mechanical birds in our glorious skies. FlightRadar24 sets the exceedingly high benchmark - others follow, many even imitate, but nothing comes close to the amazing professionalism of this awesome app. Rock-steady reliability, fast loading, zero glitches. What is not to like?

  81. guest-avatar

    Can't agree more with previous comments regarding now having no choice whether to upgrade or not. I appreciate that technology moves on, but if Flightradar are that grateful for our loyalty, why not let those who paid for the app have the new one subscription free for ever and not just for three months?

  82. guest-avatar

    One of a very few apps that I actually pay for monthly. I'm not the sharpest in the techie/ programming department, but this app is absolutely mindblowing to me. I doubted its accuracy at first , but was an instant believer day one after using the AR feature with an airliner overhead. In real time, it gave me a 3d render of the aircraft, its info and as it passed over, I could see the our property below thru the AR pilots view. MIND BLOWN! GREAT APP .. THX DEVS!!

    Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!. This app is amazing. Really satisfied even without the premium version. If you want to know real speed of airplane(premium feature),just multiply the kts with 1.85 and get the real airplane speed in km/h

  84. guest-avatar

    Seriously ticked off at having to switch to the new app. The old app worked fine but this one will not work on my device. The map comes up, but no planes. So from 30th March I will no longer have any Flightradar24.

  85. guest-avatar

    Great app for tracking flights. I only wish there was an option to buy a basic ad-free version for a single price, without having to subscribe. I don't use the app enough to justify subscribing. I'm only a casual user.

    Since the update the app isn't working like it was. No timings are shown for taking off and landing and anytime I go on an airport it keeps saying server error please try again later. Such a shame as I love this app.

  87. guest-avatar

    I Paid for the old app now they discontinued it and teplaced it with this pay as you go app. Such bull@$%! Like they dont make enough off the ads that they have to charge their customers too! On March 30th I will be uninstalling both versions and chocking the money lost to experience.

  88. guest-avatar

    After purchasing the previous app..and being told it would still work...now being told no longer will work come end of march..but you can subscribe monthly to our new app that has pointless features..I'd rather s**t in my hand and clap than give you any more if my time and money!

    Bought subscription plus add-on a few years ago, now they change the rules, no compensation for paid users!!! What a crock of BS!!! Uninstalling and never coming back to this crooked app!!!!!

  91. guest-avatar

    used to be a good app. they don't update plane info of any flight before departure as they used to. and need to pay for every detail which was free earlier.

  92. guest-avatar

    Best flight tracker app! It has a lot of options to custom the app , very easy to use and very precise , it also gives you a lot of information about the flight you are tracking and lets you see all the airports around the world.

  93. guest-avatar

    If you have an aeronautical interest and like to know destination and particulars of aircraft in your area, this the App to have! I think it's excellent! Give it a go!

  94. guest-avatar

    Been using the app for an age but recently the app won't connect using wifi on my Samsung S9 but works when I use mobile data. If it wasn't for this I would rate it higher. Edit: This issue now seems to be resolved and am having no issues with the app on wifi.

    Love to watch and learn more about the aircraft at home or when traveling. Great for knowing when your flight will arrive. Please note that not all aircraft have transponders. Also private or chartered flights may not have any route or destination information available.

  96. guest-avatar



    By using flightradar24 we can know everything about our flights wherever and whenever we are, we can know details of our flights such as the speed, high, destination and kind of the plane and airlines and airports, I recommend all people especially who travel a lot to use it. Thanks a lot

  97. guest-avatar

    Forced this app on people who paid for the previous one then discontinued it. It's the same app. But I lost my purchase and now have to pay a subscription for the features I already paid for. And before you give the *built on old technology* copypasta you've been toting, note that I bought the app WELL after 2009. You just shifted the same app based on OPEN SOURCE DATA to a new app so that you could charge a subscription and ditch your paid PRO customers.

  98. guest-avatar

    I was forced to upgrade to a version with ads after paying for the original app. Edit: "we never force anyone into anything they do not wish to do" Yet, the app warns that it "will stop working on March 30, 2020"

    Love the app! Mainly use during plane spotting near PIT, and for tracking family members' flights. Four stars because I never give five -- always room for improvement. Suggestion: Maybe add live ATC capabilities of some sort?

    Paid for the first app. Now that app won't work after March 30. Have to buy subscription instead. Well refund my purchase for original product and let me decide if I want subscription.
