Plane Finder has been featured by Gizmodo, CNN, GMA, BBC, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, CNET, Wired, GQ Magazine and many more. HOW DOES PLANE FINDER WORK? Plane Finder receives real time ADS-B and MLAT signals sent by aircraft to transmit their 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.

  • Worst money spent

    Couldn’t even find my moms flight, which is the only reason I got this. How the hell are you guys even around? Apple should remove you for fraud!

  • Great learning tool

    By Kkite78
    My kids and I love learning about geography. PlaneFinder provides an opportunity to learn about other places in the world.
  • Fascinating

    By FromRoad
    Fascinating to discover the plane’s overhead at any given time.
  • Bad tracking

    By Yamaharseven
    Paid to be able to track my family’s flight & it can’t even locate their aircraft?
  • Good but not seeing real time data like on ADS-B Exchange

    By AggiEgyptian
    Could be great if it were tapped into a real time database like ADS-B Exchange. There are certain aircraft I track that have incomplete or not history shown in plane finder but can be found easily in ADS-B Exchange. I need complete data for my purposes.
  • flights not available

    By selfself2009
    This was once a good app with info on nearby flights. The app has changed and nearby flights are not found or available. Not worth it anymore.
  • Highly recommend it.

    By sempervmarine
    Uncomplicated, easy to use, always current.
  • Apple TV Version does not work

    By tsgb001
    This program on Apple TV keeps wanting to take you through the tutorial and then freezes up and will not allow you to proceed past it. It tells you to push play on your remote but will not do anything just locks up.
  • Great app!!

    By Rachel's iTunes
    A really amazing app! It gives so much information about the planes in the air. Allows the user to get all different types of information about the players I can see in the sky above me.
