Plane Finder - Flight Tracker App Description

Plane Finder tracks planes in real time around the world. Watch live moving planes on a worldwide map or use the camera AR view to ID planes above you. You can even play back past flights – all the way back to 2011. The Plane Finder app launched in 2009 and was the first live flight tracking app - today there are millions of happy users all over the world. Plane Finder has been top rated and top ranking since 2009 and covers most of the world, tracking 12,000+ planes simultaneously. Search by flight number, place name, airport, airline and aircraft or browse the map. (You can choose Apple or Google maps too!). Simply tap a plane to see detailed flight and aircraft information including photographs or tap an airport to see live arrivals and departures boards. Use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify planes overhead using your device camera. 23 different plane markers are included and airline logos are displayed next to planes for easy identification. Custom alerts are unlimited and free to use, so you can take a break from watching the air traffic and let the app notify you when a plane is in the air or nearby. Powerful and unlimited custom filters are also free to use. You can create, save and name as many filters as you need for quick access to the planes you are interested in. Add and browse bookmarks to saved locations around the globe to quickly navigate to areas or airports of interest. Handoff is supported too! If you prefer a list view of planes to the map view, use the sortable List View. You can also rearrange the table columns for ease of use. Watch your previous flights - all the way back to April 2011! Use playback to replay holiday flights, diversions, major incidents etc. You can also easily see the effects of storms, ATC strikes, volcanic ash clouds and more. Or just relax and use playback to view the flow of air traffic through the day. FAA US and NATS UK aviation charts are available as an in app purchase as a visual alternative to standard maps. Plane Finder has been featured by Gizmodo, CNN, GMA, BBC, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, CNET, Wired, GQ Magazine and many more. We have millions of happy users and Plane Finder is regularly updated with innovative new features. Our support team always listen to and reply to feedback. At a glance our worldwide coverage includes - • Europe 95% - realtime • North America – 100% via slightly US delayed data – Nationwide realtime ADS-B network in place and capturing 95% of ADS-B equipped aircraft • Rest of World – Excellent coverage in Australia, New Zealand, Central America, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, Dubai, India, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Maldives, Mauritius, Singapore, Hong Kong and many more countries Important Note: Plane Finder works by picking up real time ADS-B and MLAT 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 real time is also included for North America.

  • Flying awesome

    By Aleighaknessie2678
    Awesome app too see what plane is flying over!
  • Ripoff

    By larryirun
    I cannot open the app anymore! Instead I get an invite to buy the “improved” version. No way!
  • Love it, but...

    By Trytotravel
    This app works well generally and I can happily recommend it. However, they use the same symbols for arrival and departure - easier to track airline flights because you know where they’re going, but tracking by registration works without giving the direction.
  • Almost perfect

    By Nein Nunb
    Would be a perfect app if it wasn’t for not being able to see the majority of flights from KMIA. For some reason they do not show up in that area while they do show up in other apps like FlightRadar24.
  • Used to work

    By one of the boys
    Why does planefinder never find my flights anymore? They are in the air and other apps find and track them well with flight number, but not planefinder.
  • Used to be great.

    By MLBdriver
    The last few times I’ve used this app, it either doesn’t respond to input or fails to show any planes.
  • Fun and useful

    By Musiccritic
    Aside from fun of knowing which flight is flying overhead, with filter I can track individual flight I want to follow
  • Wow

    By defined2
    This is a such a great app. Ive always loved to look up at the sky and guess where the plane was headed. Now I can use this app to find out. The details about the ✈️ is incredible. So many stats. Well done! 👍👍
  • Highly suggested

    By Afh 2016
    I highly suggest this app because, it has live flight tracking, and I will be honest it was a debate between a few flight apps but, I narrowed it down to this one and found that it provided the most information on the route as well as the aircraft and for functional purposes has no ads, is very easy to find flights, easy to find airports and is easy filter. It’s also very good because you can use the camera to see what flights are around you. I would highly suggest this app to anyone who wanted an easy well working and full of information app. It may cost five dollars but I think it’s worth it.
  • Great app

    By Eb83125
    Use this app when I'm at work. Accurate most of the time. Annoyed that I’m asked to rate it every time I open it.
