What's New in Version 2.0.1
Bug fix for older OS X systems.
Feature packed and very useful
I don’t normally leave reviews but I feel the reviews of this App are way off base. I really like this App. I’m a commercial airline captain and really appreciate the features of this App.
The filters and setting allow almost any combination of information do be displayed and has an amazing amount of Data available. Right down to the squawk of the Aircrafts transponder. Using the Apps full screen mode turns my screen into a virtual ATC radar screen and i find the options avaiable very impressive.
I think it’s a great App, I can see future improvements to the visual display, but as is I’m very happy with this App.
I think this desktop version is somewhat less capable than the ad-laden website; but im hoping that will improve.
It does tag and provide data for the selected planes. Was unable to identify ‘my location’ (put me somewhere in the mid atlantic) when i selected ‘my location’
Also, when airport arrivals, departures list comes up, the individual flights and apparently not selectable. (would have been my primary use).
So, my review-opinion is that it’s a good start and getting there; but needs some more work.
Because of this i’ll probably refrain from buying the IOS version at least for a while.
WEBSITE MAP LOOKS BETTER
I like that I can save settings in different tabs and see airline logos, and would be happier if the map on the website was available on the app. Also the map needs to scroll it would be better if flights from asia did not wrap from one end of the map to the other it looks cheap and poorly executed. if the map scrolled continuously like it does on the website i would give 4 stars, 5 if the map looked as good as on the website.
