Customer Reviews

Nice, but lots of room for improvement.

I’d really like to see the following:

* Pinch and zoom gestures (or at least zoom buttons on the map that aren’t covered up by airplanes!)
* A button to center the map on my current location
* Information as to the age of the data for each plane.
* The ability to use aviation charts as base maps, and more information about airports, weather, etc.
* Maybe the ability to incorporate an airport’s audio from LiveATC where available

Waste of Money

Don't waste your money on the app. The web version is so much better. Slow to load and not as accurate as the web version. Wish I had not purchased.
