Important Note:
Plane Finder works by picking up real time ADS‐B 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 near real time is also included for North America; this is subject to a short time delay.

Free version unusable


The free version is basically unusable. Adverts intrude with music, the aircraft often don’t even move and trying to watch Heathrow, it doesn’t really aircraft taking off or landing properly. I am using a recent I-pad that runs everything I’ve tried up to know. Had the free version worked or even had a time limited version of the full program, I would have bought it provided it actually worked.
I think this company has really missed an opportunity to actually sell its full version.
I often use this type of program when teaching in schools but unfortunately won’t be able to use this one.

Good if you like to know whats flying over your house


I enjoy watching planes at the airport and we get a lot flying over us nearly every day and always wondered where they were going, this app now tells me, you can see the planes moving on the map as they're tracked, also gives height and speed, route and both flight time and distance between departure and arrival airport

Love this app

What an interesting free App. I have a marvellous view of aircraft taking off and landing at Malaga Airport and this App provides me with every little bit of information that the pilot needs to know in addition to minute by minute tracking movement of all aircraft. Absolutely great to use especially in these last few days when the weather has not been nice to go outside anyway!
