Can't Shut It Off

5 stars or 1 star????
Works great in real time when you want to track a flight. The instant schedule updates are also quite impressive.
But... after the plane lands and you quit the app, It still constantly sends you flight data notifications from the same flight # of the next day, and if next day, and if the next day, repeatedly, all day long, on each and every succeeding day!
Apparently it ignores the date, doesn't know that it should be permanently sleeping, and keeps on ticking. If shutting off notifications doesn't work, DELETE!

Great app

Really like this app. We have a flight path directly over our house (10,000 feet up) and for years had no idea where they were headed. It's scary because not only do I now know where they're coming from/going to, I know the airline, altitude, speed, etc.. Really awesome stuff!

Great Tracking Flights App

Really good, works fine and provides accurate date, I have used others that don't have many smaller airlines, with this app I've been able to track everything just fine and great app.
