FlightAware Flight Tracker App Reviews

  • First to know

    By Parrotpapa
    I first gave them only 1 star earlier saying they had the wrong info. Found out later they were the first to report the delay. 5 + stars for them for the earliest info I needed
  • Very accurate

    I do not use the app enough anymore since I retired, as a Captain with a major airline in which I commuted for years, but when I do I am impressed with the accuracy and information available. There is a bit of a learning curve every time I use the app due to my infrequent use but when I "relearn" how to set it up the information is invaluable.
  • Great tool

    By sgmmikem
    It is great to review your flight afterwards.
  • Slooooooow...what’s going on??

    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.
  • 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.

    The app is a good app but it needs to have one feature added to the app. The ability to view flight delay and cancellations. You can see this online on the site why not on the app too? I would like to see this added during the next update of the app.
  • Here a fantastic to keep up with love ones

    I use this app every time s family member flies. It helps my elderly mother know where her children are and that they are safe
  • Weak, dumbed down functionality

    By mecarboy
    Compared to regular web site, the app offers not terribly useful information that has been dumbed down. Key data like historical delay details is lacking as is updated flight times that are available on website. Just not worth the space on my iPhone.
