It’s ok, nice education aspect, not good for busy areas

I live about 10 miles from JFK and kids are always interested in planes. It does not show precisely the planes you see flying in the sky, just about 30 white plane shapes on their descent or recently departed. I also have a private airport nearby which has about another ten private flights showing. So maybe I live in a high air traffic area for this app and it doesn’t meet expectations. It’s pretty cool tho to guess which of the white planes might be the airplane I actually see. And to teach some geography to the kids along the way.

Awesome App !!!!!

I did not have my compass calibration turned on, so when I bought the app it would freeze up when it was searching for planes. I e-mailed support and in like 30 seconds he told me to turn on my compass calibration. Fastest response I ever had. The app is working great. Love pointing at the planes in the sky and seeing where they are going. Love it !!!!!!!!

This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review for an app. I love this app! It is a great practical application of AR. I cannot count the number of times I have looked up at a plane flying overhead and wondered where it was coming from and where it was going. Now I can find out. This app is amazing in the truest sense of the word!
