App Reviews

  • Heavy issues for login multiple devices

    By MeInD-town
    When I am logged into my iPhone App, I am unable to log into my iPad, and viceversa. If I keep logged in my iPad and do not bring it always with me, I won’t be able to check on my iPhone the flight status due to login error. Instead of saying “You are logged in on a different device”, it says “Error - Login or password incorrect. Please try to log in again” (misleading information, the login and the password are correct, but the app doesn’t allow it). The other device has to be off, logged out or sleeping in the background. Shouldn’t happen that way; even with a bank account you can log in on separate devices at the same time. The App doesn’t give you an option for adding a mobile phone number in order to receive SMS about flight information. Might be a useful and important feature to have. However, I am using this App for years already and it is coming handy when flying or waiting for a traveler. It will get my 5 stars when the above glitches are fixed.
  • Slooooooow...what’s going on??

    By LAX20531
    Update: The app is still awesome but the display is experiencing major latency with refreshing the map. I ran a speed test and I’m currently getting 300 down/30 up (mbps) so it’s not speed and a forced reset of iPad didn’t fix the issue either. Updating to the new release of FlightAware was a no go as well. There’s always the website of course, but this is rather convenient. I’ll try again later and will update if my results are different. I've used the desktop FlightAware probably since its inception and the iOS version for many years. At times the app was ignored and under-developed, but the recent binge of updates have made it cutting edge once again. Every one of the flight tracking apps offers something just a bit different so YMMV according to your needs...FlightAware offers something for both the frequent traveler and the aviation aficionado so I highly recommend it. It also offers a very cheap option to remove annoying ads which I always take advantage of when offered.
  • Last update needs bug fixing

    By Gregoire1970
    I’ve been using FlightAware for a long time and think highly of it. It would merit probably 4 stars if not for a few bugs that I think showed up since the last update of either FlightAware or iOS. One thing is I don’t have a settings icon top right. If I click that area my settings will show up but the icon itself is missing. Clicking the layers icon most of the time shows up a white square in the bottom with a few checkmarks but no accompanying text and no way to close the layers options - the icons dealing with that are hidden like the settings icon. This happens with the light theme on both my iPhone 8 and iPad Pro 9.7” running the latest iOS. With the dark theme everything works as it should. Edit: thanks to the swift response back to 4 stars!
  • Very decent App!

    By popART4ever
    My brother is a charter pilot and recommended this app. With it we've been able to track flights and actual planes, from origin to destination (and obtain quite a bit more information about delays than airlines provide- i.e. It can tell us when a delayed plane has yet to take off from a previous leg of a multi city route, or is running early). It maps flight progress of all flights- too bad we can't access it more easily from the planes themselves, but it keeps everyone on the ground well informed. As for looking up flights by tail number--that's a great way to find the whereabouts of the private pilot in the family, it's not just for airline passengers, it also tracks private planes.
  • No longer works for me

    By Ffjcdsyukcdg
    I drive for uber and Lyft and rely on this app heavily to be able to predict surges at the airport based on flight arrival times. Without this app or something similar I would not be able to make as much money as I do and out of all the different flight tracking apps, this one is by far my favorite because of how easy it is to use and track incoming flights. Unfortunately, its best feature seems to have stopped working for me, my boyfriend, and other drivers I’ve talked to. Flight arrivals no longer show up in chronological order, rather they seem to be listed according to their origination point departure times. This renders the app completely useless for us and hopefully it can be fixed soon as we have yet to find any other apps that are as intuitive and easy to use as flight aware!
  • Out of sync with the web site

    By Tailgunner55
    I used to trust the FlightAware app but my wife and I were just trying to follow the status of our daughter’s departure flight to Newark and got two different stories from FlightAware. I was using the app that still showed the flight as on time and my wife was using the FlightAware website that showed a 3-hour departure delay. What’s up with that? I checked the app again and in the flight details block it showed the local departure and the arrival in Newark as on time but there was a notation at the top of that same screen that showed the flight as delayed (with no other information as to how long). The web site showed an actual delayed departure time. I think the app and web site should be in sync and I think that any notation of a flight delay should give the app user the same information as the web site user.
  • Amazing

    By Juanpa10795961209
    Barely write reviews for apps but you guys definitely deserve one. I love how I can look where flights are going when I see the airplanes from the ground some are coming from Europe or don't even have a stop in the US it's awesome! It also helps me to track when a family member flight is on time or delayed as well as seeing where are they in the Atlantic while I run errands before picking them up; it definitely saves me money too because if a flight it's delayed I don't have to over pay for parking at the airport and just get there at the right time.
  • Great app! Very informative!

    By That1Guy717
    More information than I imagined would be publicly available about the various aircraft flying over us (or anywhere) on a constant basis. Only improvement I see so far would be easier access to get back to the "Home screen view", which for me would mean showing the big map of any aircraft and airports in my general current vicinity / current location. Some pages had no way to go back, but you were forced to choose from a list of, for example, of current aircraft in that area. Other than that, very pleased with the app and look forward to any updates and improvements.
  • Good info, but display issues make barely usable

    By LuckysClub
    This flight app has a wealth of information. Almost too much, and although recent changes have made it easier to navigate it still is complex. The real problem with the app is that so many screens are poorly formatted for the text they contain. Text overflows the space allotted to it. Sometimes this just looks ugly, but often text overflows and covers buttons. Then the buttons don’t work and the app becomes unusable. The only way to get it working again is to force-quit and start over. This has been happening through many generations of the app and they just don’t seem to get a handle on the problem. I guess there’s a problem with all that complexity.
  • Great development.

    By Holmchile texas
    A few years ago the developer was minding his own business watching our progress from Puerto Rico back to Houston. I looked over his shoulder and asked how he was doing what he was,as I thought it was impossible to do given the lack of wifi on the plane . He then told me that it was his mapping and technology allowing ground following and plane transponders that made it possible. He and his family were on their way home from a vacation as were my wife and I from an eastern Carrie cruise. Great deal for use while airborne,traveling . Wow!
