Want to display ACARS transmissions, without using a bulky computer? ACARS lets you view ACARS aircraft transmissions on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

A radio/scanner capable of tuning the 118-136 MHz aircraft band is required. Just set it next to the radio's speaker, tune in an ACARS frequency, and watch the decodes. Or, for even better reception, use a pair of earbuds, plugged into the radio’s headphone jack, rather than the internal speaker.

You can save decoded ACARS packets to a file to view later, or transfer to your computer via iTunes.

Aircraft model information for many planes in a built in database is displayed along with the decoded packets. You can also add your own plane information to the database.

Packet fields are color coded on iOS 6 and later.

Buy your copy right now, and start decoding and displaying ACARS transmissions in minutes.

It works.

VERY minimum application, it receives ACARS and that's it. You can put your earbud microphone next to radio speaker, but best bet would be a line-level microphone input. Even if packet doesn't fully decide properly, you get what does decode. Thats a plus. Wish it could run in the background. Only thing I understand is Tail number and type aircraft in packet. It would be nice if the rest of the jibberish is translated to what it actually means. However, it does work. I use in with SDR on the Airband.
