Wanted to monitor flight WN 184 Southwest Airlines from SMF to LAS. On entering south west in the search bar I was directed to the southwest website. Then tried WN in the search bar and Again was directed to the airlines website. On entering the flight # I received all Europe’s flights. On entering both Arline and number nothing was found rendering the search bars success rather poor. After searching via the airport option I finally found the flight in departures. I requested notifications for the SMF-LAS flight and was given multiple arrivals departures notifications that I did not request including a Burbank - Sacramento flight, Las Vegas - Spokane flight, and finally received the Sacramento - Las Vegas flight.

The app does monitor many other flights that do not show on other apps such as freight. I monitor flights in and out of MHR, however, the flights are shown consistently 7 hours ahead of their actual arrival time. Sure it’s minor arithmetic but .... irritating.

This pay app has just too many glitches and annoying to navigate. I still use the app as it is far more-comprehensive than other apps, especially in relation to fright flights; however, if you looking for a passenger flight app in the USA, there are a few other pay apps surpass this upgrade from planes live.

Super Great App & Easy To Figure Out

Jay Herrod

I bought this app Tuesday afternoon & being I am the hospital with a bad, painful, blood clot in my right lung I have had time to figure it out. Figuring it out is easy. I just set mine to show the "day/night zones" in "Settings". If you zoom in close where there are lots of plane in an area you can easily pick which one you want to check on. Now due to security reasons it will not show you which runway a plane is landing on but what's the big deal if you don't anyway & if you happen to be waiting at the airport to pick someone up you'll know the flight has landed (no more guessing).

In the months sense I’ve first wrote this review I have noticed the following things:

1. Sometimes the plane symbol is pointed the opposite direction the plane is actually traveling and sometimes but rarely a plane isn’t where it actually is.
2. Sometimes though rarely the total travel time is way off, especially on very short flights.
3. Commonly a plane’s true approach to an airport when it gets close in is very inaccurate.

From the army Tripler Hospital’s parking lot on the ocean side where I can easily see arriving and departing flights from Honolulu In the mornings I noticed most inter island flights didn’t show up at all with most of inter island departures not showing up at all. The arrivals of all flights appeared pretty accurate. I have seen this wit own 2 eyes.

The 4 above issues need to be corrected as soon as possible.

Thanks for the positive and detailed review. We will check these inaccuracies on our side in order to come up with a possible solution. Sorry for this inconvenience!

Ad Push Notification


Really sick and tired of these weekly push notifications reminding me to use this app. I don't fly a lot, but I paid $4.99 for this app and I don't think I should be hassled to use it. I want to be able to turn off this obnoxious notification.

UPDATE: I shouldn't have to disable notifications for the app to not receive self-promotion thru push notifications. I paid for the app because I didn't want ads. With your suggestion of turning off notifications, that might screw me over should I forget to enable them when I do need to use the app for traveling. Also, these notifications seem to conflict with Apple's App Store Review guidelines, specifically 4.5.3: "Do not use Apple Services to spam, phish, or send unsolicited messages to customers, including Game Center, Push Notifications, etc." Sending: "Be sure you'll be on time at the airport with Planes Live app ✈️" is definitely an unsolicited message sent through the push notification system.

Developer Response

Sorry for the inconvenience. You might deactivate notifications for the app in your device settings in order to stop receiving push messages. Please note that you need to activate notifications next time you use the app in order to receive flight statuses and possible flight changes. Hope for your understanding.
