Great App

Terrific app and packed with very accurate info. Developers did a great job. UI is good and clean. Has enough info to stay interesting without info overload. As for the Harrier comment below by jodi talks about the AV-8B. If you are such an expert, you would know the Brits USED to fly the GR series. Also, the USAF doesn't fly the Harrier, the Marine Corps does. Besides,the Brits just sold their entire Harrier fleet to the US. Get your facts straight before you criticize others.

What's wrong with War Planes

I like the app but it has a couple of glitches. First of all,you can't rotate the screen. Second of all,I like to watch the videos of the planes taking off,but I can't slide the screen over to see the other features of the details page. If only you could give this app a miner update the app and fix those glitches,I would give this app a solid 5 star rating!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Hope you give it an update

Extremely us forces bias

For a buck fine for 7 NO! When I think of a harrier I think of the raf ones just like I do with spit(fire)s and the p40 well this app SOMEHOW manages to show USAF for all 3 of those

I really could go on about it but they give the impression the us forces are the only ones to fly when I KNOW the raf also flies

Personally I'm thinking this app is a disgrace for anyone intrested in planes/flying and I can't help but think it was a buck that I could have spent better
