App Reviews

  • Excellent Application

    By Phobic Flyer!!!
    I am not a flyer but I use this app constantly to follow the flights of family and friends that are very dear to me. My aunt and uncle were killed on a commercial jetliner many years ago and since that time I cannot ride on a plane! Secretly I’d like to stop all my loved ones from doing so but I know that is impossible. The Flightview App is the next best thing to helping me remain at peace and calm while let’s say for example my daughter is flying over the Atlantic on her way to England. Being able to actually see and track the plane in real time while it’s traveling, and giving me updated information helps me to be so much less anxious than I ever would have been had I not had such a tool! Thank you so much for making it possible for me to cope with my fear so much better by providing so much information regarding real flights in real time with the ability to see those flights moving along from destination to destination. It’s really wonderful !!!!
  • Great app but needs updating (as of summer 2018)

    By Hidelsc
    When this first app came out, it did not do a very good job tracking international flights but since then, it’s been great! It’s the best, most up-to-date flight app I’ve tried. It knows when the plane has landed before the airport monitors do! And I love how it will tell you “departed” when the plane leaves the gate, “in air” when it has actually taken off; “landed” when the flight touches down, and “arrived” when the plane is at the gate. However, about 2 months ago (May 2018) it’s stated having some glitches and wasn’t as accurate as it has been. Flights not updating (said flight was “landed” but not “arrived” for 6 hrs before updated); late on sending notifications (got an alert at 12:59pm that a flight was delayed until 12:56pm, and by then, was already on the plane); can’t always find flight (found 3 out of 4 of my European flights, regardless of the one it couldn’t find being on the airline’s app). This app hasn’t had an update in 5 months...I’m thinking it’s due!
  • Tried about every flight tracker, always come back to this one.

    By Nebra81
    I’ve tried others that had nice me interfaces and some that combined information for flights into one nice looking place but, either notifications were lacking or you had to pay for something that this app offers for free. I have used this app for many flights ( tracking family and friends from European flights to Asian ones ) and the notifications always work, the timing pretty much on point. This is why I keep coming back to this one. I’ll critique only the look of this app but it’s free so even that’s not fair to judge. Don’t waste time looking for a tracker when this one does exactly what you need it to do, “Track flights”
  • Weak support for international flights

    By jyh_
    I cannot comment on the usefulness of this app for US domestic flights, only for international flights between USA, Europe, and Asia. My point of comparison is the now-defunct Flight Track Pro (thank you so bloody much, Expedia!), an app in every aspect vastly superior to FlightView. In FlightView: 1) Typically, boarding gate info is not available outside of the USA (I am not talking of minor regional airports here but of Paris CdG, London, Hong Kong, Bangkok, etc.). 2) The app does not even compute and display the duration of stopovers between flights of a same "trip". 3) The date and time of departure of the flight are not even displayed in the iOS Widgets view. What good is it to me to know that my flight is "scheduled" if I am not reminded of the departure time? 4) Boarding annoucements are not displayed by the app. 5) Similarly, the app does not inform of flight delays in a timely fashion. 6) In fact, I often see that my flight is not yet reported as having departed by the time I land at my destination, a few hours later. Some people may consider it bad form to be so critical of a free app. I would gladly pay for an app that addresses the issues above, but the "Elite" version of this app only seems to add stuff of no use/interest to me. As it is, FlightView is barely usable for international travel.
  • Why is everyone so upset about this great app?!?!

    By Tttttttttrrrreeeeeeeeeerr
    I’ve used this app for almost a couple years now, and I’ve never had a problem with it. It’s accurate, and very easy to use. Yes the ads are present, but it’s not like they make the flight information inaccessible (for me anyway). This app is severely underrated, and deserves much more appreciation than what it’s getting, especially when the Flightview workers and app developers are working hard enough as it is to make a great product into something better. I have total respect for those who may not like it, but I would say give it a few more chances before deciding it is totally useless.
  • Helpful app

    By VoxProf
    I used to use Flight Tracker but it’s gone. I have replaced it with this app. While not as much info as Flight Tracker this one is free and it works. One thing I wish it could do is enable switching locations (like you can switch the “to” and “from” in map apps). For multiple leg trips this would save a step as you could just switch the “to” to make it “from” and then add the next “from” location. I’d like to see the flight paths of the plane too - like Flight Tracker used to have. All in all, this is a good app and a “must have” for me in addition to the airline’s own app. I use both together when I fly.
  • Best by far!!

    By Yogiamin
    This app does the job exactly as described. No nonsense. Ads are there but hey, the app is free because of those ads. And trust me they are not intrusive or annoying at all. This app allows you to create a trip and put all your flights for that trip in it. Gives you notifications that are very useful. It gives you exact time of every status. I have known about delayed flights before even it shows up on airport tv screens. Must have it even if you travel rarely via airplanes. The weather at both airports and real-time updates are just so well placed and designed. Go for it!!!!
  • Great app

    By cr115
    Love this app!! Love the map and altitude and speed info. Love the notifications of every detail along the flight. I’ve used it several times over the years. Just reloaded it to track another flight and thought there were problems with it. Map wasn’t working. No speed or altitude. So I loaded another app that was showing the flight en route thinking this one was flawed. Turns out the flight hadn’t left the ground yet. It was delayed taking off and it was the other app (Flight Tracker) that was terribly wrong!!! Sooooo glad this one is actually working!! It’s my favorite!
  • First Time User-not impressed

    By Joelsgirl104
    Well, I just downloaded this app to track my husband’s flight from San Francisco to Toronto. It took forever to update. It said “departed” for almost 30 minutes and then finally said “in air” and showed that it departed at 8:21 when actually it departed at 7:53. I downloaded another tracker app also to test them out, and the other one (Flight Tracker) was more accurate. This one is currently showing that it’s barely entering Nevada when it’s actually almost to Utah. This app hasn’t been updated for six months...I think it’s due for one. UPDATE: It’s working a little better today during his flight home. But it probably should be updated to be more efficient.
  • FlightTrack worked consistently better

    By Runnerss
    I couldn't wait to try this one. I thought if they gave up on FlightTrack, that they must've out done themselves. For usability, this app is garbage. All I want to know is how much frequency city pairs have and the layout is so busy, I have to stare at the screen to figure it out. The free version crashes with some advertisements. It takes way too many taps to find flights and the app defaults to the same blank form every time you switch apps, even if you leave it running. I'm not sure why people so unabashedly rave about it, unless they've never seen this much flight information on one screen before. But we're past the point of that being a surprise, now. Other apps can do it.
