Slooooooow...what’s going on??


Update: The app is still awesome but the display is experiencing major latency with refreshing the map. I ran a speed test and I’m currently getting 300 down/30 up (mbps) so it’s not speed and a forced reset of iPad didn’t fix the issue either. Updating to the new release of FlightAware was a no go as well. There’s always the website of course, but this is rather convenient. I’ll try again later and will update if my results are different.

I've used the desktop FlightAware probably since its inception and the iOS version for many years. At times the app was ignored and under-developed, but the recent binge of updates have made it cutting edge once again.
Every one of the flight tracking apps offers something just a bit different so YMMV according to your needs...FlightAware offers something for both the frequent traveler and the aviation aficionado so I highly recommend it. It also offers a very cheap option to remove annoying ads which I always take advantage of when offered.

Very decent App!


My brother is a charter pilot and recommended this app. With it we've been able to track flights and actual planes, from origin to destination (and obtain quite a bit more information about delays than airlines provide- i.e. It can tell us when a delayed plane has yet to take off from a previous leg of a multi city route, or is running early). It maps flight progress of all flights- too bad we can't access it more easily from the planes themselves, but it keeps everyone on the ground well informed. As for looking up flights by tail number--that's a great way to find the whereabouts of the private pilot in the family, it's not just for airline passengers, it also tracks private planes.

Out of sync with the web site


I used to trust the FlightAware app but my wife and I were just trying to follow the status of our daughter’s departure flight to Newark and got two different stories from FlightAware. I was using the app that still showed the flight as on time and my wife was using the FlightAware website that showed a 3-hour departure delay. What’s up with that? I checked the app again and in the flight details block it showed the local departure and the arrival in Newark as on time but there was a notation at the top of that same screen that showed the flight as delayed (with no other information as to how long). The web site showed an actual delayed departure time. I think the app and web site should be in sync and I think that any notation of a flight delay should give the app user the same information as the web site user.
