Description

Plane Finder tracks planes in real time around the world. Watch live moving planes on a worldwide map or use the camera AR view to ID planes above you. You can even play back past flights – all the way back to 2011. The Plane Finder app launched in 2009 and was the first live flight tracking app - today there are millions of happy users all over the world. Plane Finder has been top rated and top ranking since 2009 and covers most of the world, tracking 12,000+ planes simultaneously. Search by flight number, place name, airport, airline and aircraft or browse the map. (You can choose Apple or Google maps too!). Simply tap a plane to see detailed flight and aircraft information including photographs or tap an airport to see live arrivals and departures boards. Use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify planes overhead using your device camera. 23 different plane markers are included and airline logos are displayed next to planes for easy identification. Custom alerts are unlimited and free to use, so you can take a break from watching the air traffic and let the app notify you when a plane is in the air or nearby. Powerful and unlimited custom filters are also free to use. You can create, save and name as many filters as you need for quick access to the planes you are interested in. Add and browse bookmarks to saved locations around the globe to quickly navigate to areas or airports of interest. Handoff is supported too! If you prefer a list view of planes to the map view, use the sortable List View. You can also rearrange the table columns for ease of use. Watch your previous flights - all the way back to April 2011! Use playback to replay holiday flights, diversions, major incidents etc. You can also easily see the effects of storms, ATC strikes, volcanic ash clouds and more. Or just relax and use playback to view the flow of air traffic through the day. FAA US and NATS UK aviation charts are available as an in app purchase as a visual alternative to standard maps. Plane Finder has been featured by Gizmodo, CNN, GMA, BBC, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, CNET, Wired, GQ Magazine and many more. We have millions of happy users and Plane Finder is regularly updated with innovative new features. Our support team always listen to and reply to feedback. At a glance our worldwide coverage includes - • Europe 95% - realtime • North America – 100% via slightly US delayed data – Nationwide realtime ADS-B network in place and capturing 95% of ADS-B equipped aircraft • Rest of World – Excellent coverage in Australia, New Zealand, Central America, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, Dubai, India, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Maldives, Mauritius, Singapore, Hong Kong and many more countries Important Note: Plane Finder works by picking up real time ADS-B and MLAT signals used by aircraft to transmit 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. Traditional radar type data in real time is also included for North America.

    The information on this app is typically either missing, or grossly inaccurate!!! Don’t waste your time with this app! I gave it 1 star only because it won’t allow you to give it 0 stars!!!

    This is a Good APP for now, however it used to be a Great APP until one of the most prominent features was disabled by the developer and that was the tilt to horizontal view on both the Map & the AR. That took my last review from 5 Stars to down to 3 Stars. I emailed the developer about 6 Months ago complaining about that feature being removed after the last update and the developer told me it was removed without any reason as to why or when it would return, so that feature needs to be returned to the APP & then I can bump it back up again to 5 Stars and call it Great APP again.
  • Annoying in-app promotions even if you pay

    Great app excerpt every time I open it, I get this huge pop-over that says, “BUY 3D PLANE TRACKER!!!!!” which I already own. Please just remove this out of respect for people. If you insist on badgering people to buy more of your apps, let them hide this forever or detect if they have purchased other apps.
  • I just like it

    I downloaded this to my Apple TV. The controls were not user friendly then & now, more then a month later, I’ve forgotten how the controls work. there’s no splash screen or other reminder on how the controls work... and because I cant remember how the controls work, I can’t use them to fine the “need help” screen! I hate this app!
  • I love this app
