Good but Spoilt by Adds.

Every couple of minutes they are bullying you into paying £9.99 to upgrade to Add Free, what a shame, deleted after less than 30 min. Have used free Apalon Apps before, and haven't had this problem, but this one is a constant bombardment into upgrading.
Update 1st Sept
Re- downloaded this after a developers response. It runs great and I love it, but I cannot use it for more than a couple of minutes before you get full screen Adds that you cannot click off till it's ready. Not talking about bottom or top bar Adds, these are full screen and so annoying, and still constantly getting full screen Upgrade Adds, so what is there for you to make the decision to download the Full no Add Version when you cannot use it for long enough to even start to enjoy it. Will keep at it a bit longer, but it don't look good.

Developer Response

These functionality limitations in the app are compensated by the fact that it’s free. Please consider checking our portfolio for the applications with no ads that are available for download on different terms.


A MUST HAVE related whit flights.

A MUST HAVE related whit flights. Practical, efficient and entertaining application. Meanwhile your waiting your plane or flight, you can see and track real live the gps positioning of the plane. Fun to watch especially when you are waiting for someone dear or work related.
You can see precisely where the plain is and when it will land. I record in my iPhone a short movie of the plane arriving with someone very dear. It was exiting instead of long boring waiting. Reiteration.. A MUST HAVE !!^_^!!.
Cheers to all.

I find the information given with this app to be both fascinating and interesting. Good to be able to look skywards and then see where the various aircraft have both come from and are going to. It’s also handy to be able to track planes that you are going to meet someone from.
