Cute but ineffective in my case

I had high expectations. The interface was clean and it was amazing to watch it display all the planes in flight.
However, I had a hour drive to the airport to pick up a friend. When I left, the app said the flight was on time despite a 25 min late start (the flight was 2400 miles so I could believe the arrival time). 45 mins later, the arrival time was suddenly 90 mins later. The flight was actually 20 mins late. Big disparity here.
When I tried showing just the flight I was interested in, it worked a couple times then it showed all flights again.
The display is awkward to read when driving. Ok, I know we shouldn’t, but a clean while-you-drive display would provide valuable info while driving. All I’m looking for is an quick update. It wasn’t there in an easy-to-read format.
In my experience, the app fell short of what I was expecting. I would have given it more time, but there’s a short window for evaluating before subscription fees kick in.

Not worth the time

I cannot properly evaluate this apps functionality in free mode, because every 3rd touch of the screen pops up very annoying loud game ads. More than one; at least two every time. Yes, I know I can select free trial of full features to get rid of them. But I do not want to go through that hassle, including not forgetting to unsubscribe in 3 days if I don't want it.

The developer's high pressure business model is flawed and reflects a lack of understanding of his customer. He would get more subscriptions if he allowed the person to evaluate the app in peace without signing up for the free trial. Then after a few days, begin the harassment, if you must. But as it is, it is too disturbing to take the time to evaluate. I write this knowing he is reading these.

Too bad. It looked like it might have been a good about to have. But it is not worth the hassle.

Waste of time. Ugh better to use the app The Flight Tracker from International. Trying to find a particular flight? forget it. All you will get are those incessant moronic game ads from King - every single time. After hours of trying I've given up on this app and am going to delete it for good and all. I follow a lot of family flights and this app does nothing but get me terribly frustrated. By comparison Internationals app The Flight Tracker is easy to use, tells me what I want to know and generally keeps me updated on the status of my family's flights. What more could I want?
Follow up report: Tried to track my wife's flight - could not find the flight track anywhere, so it must be still on the ground. But guess what, it took off an more than hour ago and is already more than 500 miles en-route to its destination. This app is still crap!
