Great adsb app - looking forward for updated features


as a adsb receiver feeder to a few of the popular aircraft tracker sites, it’s great to see all my data and others unblocked and viewable as it should be from airwaves. There are a few updates needed like added filters for operator name not just 3 letter codes... and more filters or combination of filters like browser version VRS supports. Great app, look forward to future enhancements

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. The full operator name is available as a selection property, look under Selection Properties in Settings. Filter by ICAO hex code is supported in version 1.1.2. A new full featured search is coming soon, stay tuned.

Great for dump1090 users


I have a receive station set up at home with dump1090. Unfortunately the web interface is not very mobile-friendly. This app is excellent for checking on what's flying around me without pulling out a laptop.

Fast and useful!


I use this app to quickly ID planes that are around me and for general plane spotting. Well done and very easy to use, plus it is fast to get planes on the map when it starts up.
