The Flightradar24 app has been regarded as one of the best travel applications in a number of countries and is now available on the iOS iPad and Android for easy-to-use flight-tracking. Check out what’s happening with the airplane traffic around the world in real-time, as this useful app has also been used in various media sections with the likes of CNN, Bild and Le Monde all referring to the Flightradar24 app.
The free application can be obtained by Android users on Google Play and the features include the monitoring of planes moving in real-time, as well as airline and call-sign information for individual planes. With up-to-the-minute notifications the team behind Flightradar24 are constantly updating all global coverage, and this includes information on the most congested regions during peak times.
Also available for the iPad at the iTunes App Store FlightRadar24 is also accessible on all iOS products like the iPhone, and those wanting even more than the standard features contained within the free app can upgrade to Flightradar24 Pro.
Flightradar24 Pro is also featured on the App Store for £1.99 and this version allows users to obtain comprehensive details on each individual plane with everything from travel speed and altitude to the actual route. In addition, just pointing your iOS device’s camera to the sky can pick up and identify the planes flying overhead with the augmented reality view.
With the help of push notification alerts and the option to filter by altitude, speed and airline, users can see all call-signs and flight trails directly on a map. This banner free application also supplies coverage of previous months, although we must highlight that Flightradar24 can only track aircraft equipped with an ADS-B transponder.
As we take a look at some reviews on this we get the impression those who feel the free version does not contain enough details can purchase the full version, as the free one is regarded as just a taster by some. Generally, we get the impression this is an informative app for enthusiasts, and we would love to know whether any of our valued readers have experienced the Flightradar24 app for iPad and Android, and their thoughts on this.
