Awesome Flight Tracker

Husband, Father, Repair Man

As a pilot for a major airline, this is one of my daily tools. Fast, easy data entry, and easy to read info make this the best app of its kind. I fly about 10 flights every week, and it mirrors my schedule to my calendar for my family to keep up with my frequent schedule changes. Bad weather? Canceled flight? Just search for all available flights, or for a specific airline, it's all easy with this app. Even check to see when the incoming flight will arrive at your gate, or check seating charts before you book. I use it all day, every day at work (gate change notifications!). Better than any app my fellow pilots have shown me. My recommendation is to get the Pro version. For a few dollars it gives you push notifications for gate changes, etc. could save you a long walk or a missed flight. That's worth a few bucks!

Update: have been using this app for a few years now. Previous versions have had a few minor glitches, but the latest version seems to have fixed everything. I'm 30 years into this airline career with one of the big 3, and this app is faster than what my own airline provides for us. It's still my go-to source for quick gate and weather info. I have over 300 separate trips in the history in this app - each one has from 1 to 4 or more days of flying. I highly recommend it for both flight crew and passengers.



I am puzzled by taxi driver leaving bad review and claims. I use this application on my travels and I can tell you this is most useful app I had in years. The most important, in my tight time tells me gate number and all updates abut flight! Great! Thank to this app, recently in Rome I wasn’t late an my plane. Thumbs up!
UPDATE! It is still good application, but they want subscription on push notification which means this app is not longer better than other free apps! After I paid $10 they want me now to subscribe! It is not honest at all!
UPGRADE: It iz amazing app! It helped me during my travels, even I directed my friend in different country to get her on her gate! It is just unbelievable! If I could give this app 10 stars, I would without any hesitation...

Developer Response

The cost to us for the most timely, accurate flight status updates has increased severely. The free apps do not compare to the timeliness and accuracy of the information you will receive from our app. We regret having to do this but it was either charge or shutdown the app. Stick with our app and you will continue to never be late for your plane.



Beware of this developer and do not purchase this application under any circumstances.

When I first purchased this app around a year ago I purchased it because it had the standard push notifications that you would want in any flight status app. This meant that the app would send a notification to your phone in the event the flight was cancelled or its status had changed.

There are many free flight apps but you usually would have to pay for an app to have push notifications and so I did. I knew what I was purchasing (flight app with notifications) and I was fine with the purchase. A year later and the developer decided to take out this core functionality of the app. No more push notifications. Not only that, but he’s now charging roughly $20 a year if you want that push notifications back. This is the case even if you have already paid for the app with the included notifications. The developer just took the functionality away and is retroactively making us pay for notifications.

It’s one thing not to add features, it’s a completely disingenuous move to take out the primary feature of an app and then charge you $20 a year if you want it back. DO NOT BUY under any circumstances.
