Plane Finder works by picking up real time ADS‐B signals used by aircraft to transmit positional data to land based receivers. This technology is faster than traditional radar and is used for air traffic control and navigation. ADS‐B is not used by all airlines or aircraft, however this is changing and the number of aircraft tracked by ADS‐B is increasing all of the time. Traditional radar type data in near real time is also included for North America; this is subject to a short time delay.

Ratings and Reviews
I couldn’t figure out how to contact the developer at first. Then found it has to be done through the app, not their website.
The developer responded quickly to my question about getting rid of the ads on a second device, so it’s all good. I was happy to see the option of getting rid of 3rd-party ads without having to purchase the full version.
It’s a fun app. We always watch the planes in the sky and wondered where they were going. Now we can find out.
GREAT APP IF YOU LIKE/LOVE AVIATION AND/OR ARE NOSY
Where I live in Tennessee, Atlanta is 120 (+/-) miles to my southeast, Nashville is 170 (+\-) miles to my west, and there are loads of planes that fly over.
I so throughly enjoy seeing several aircraft in the skies above so I can use this app to determine what type of plane, where it began its journey to its destination, then vicariously experience what the passengers are experiencing.
Free version works. Easy to use. Limited information so you need to buy the better version if your interest is professional. New version is more convenient and easier to use and provides basic information.
