Does what I need it to

This is a useful app, it does what I need and helps me keep track of my trips. After adding one trip recently, the flight schedule changed slightly, and the changed times were quickly updated in Flightview . The airline informed me too, but it was nice to know that Flightview was keeping track of my flight. The only real drawbacks I have is that I wish the interface was nicer for my tablet. It just looks like a phone app blown up for my larger screen, not very attractive on a tablet. Also I wish it had a landscape mode. But these things are minor. It would also be nice if they would provide a bit more information about the airports under the “airports” tab - at least an airport map or a link to one, and maybe some info about shops and so forth too.

Excellent Application

I am not a flyer but I use Flightview 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 this app 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)

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). Flightview hasn’t had an update in 5 months...I’m thinking it’s due!

5 originally, now 3

I have had Flightview on my phone for about two years, using it occasionally. I was very happy with it and, had I reviewed it I would’ve given it five stars. No longer. In the past two weeks it has shown me two major major flaws. I was planning on meeting a friend flying into Washington DC from London. About half an hour before the flight was due to land Flightview warned that it was being diverted to Philadelphia. So I made plans for a pick up of my friend there. It kept showing Philadelphia as the new landing point for the next 24 hours. In fact the plane landed in Baltimore and the details of this were never posted. Then, a couple of days ago I was watching my sister’s flight from Iceland to New York. She was booked on WOW airlines. Unfortunately the carrier went bankrupt the day before she was due to fly and she was forced to scramble to get another ticket. No matter that all planes were grounded, Flightview showed flights taking off and landing at on time at Newark. good thing I didn’t go to meet her.

Yikes

Flightview has been having more and more issues as time goes on. So many times I have flights saying they landed, and their landing time is five+ minutes in the future! I also regularly get notifications that a flight has landed, and then when I open the notification, I have to refresh it multiple times and wait for it to actually update with that information. This often takes up to five minutes. As someone whose job involves meeting flights as they arrive, it decreases the value of Flightview immensely for me. But on a more practical note, the pop up ads they suddenly decided to put on Flightview make it unbearable. It makes Flightview lag, makes it harder for me to just take what should be 5 seconds to check the flight into a whole ordeal. ESPECIALLY because the ads have the worlds tiniest Xs for closing them and I frequently accidentally open them. The other stuff I could deal with, but not this. The instant I can find another app that has flight tracking like this one does, I'm deleting this one. It’s not worth the frustration.

Excellent

So I have the this app Elite app which doesn’t seem to be in Flightview Store anymoreI think it’s the same app as the flight view free app anyway I paid for it and the reason I did was because I think it’s the best app out there for checking flights. I’m a dispatcher for what is now a small limousine service.. i’ve been using Flightview for years. I find really Flightview very functional. I can load in a bunch of flights that I’m tracking and if those flights are delayed or diverted I get instant updates in real time.. Meanwhile my fellow dispatchers are tracking flights on Google by speaking into that search engine every 10 minutes duh… Flightview takes all the guesswork out of it I find it very accurate and I give it my highest endorsement!

Extremely Helpful for anyone who uses air travel

Must Use Flightview if you fly or have friends or family who do. I find Flightview so useful anytime I am flying, when anyone in my family is flying, when I have guests arriving by airplane. If you have to go to any airport Flightview is so helpful as it keeps you updated with the status of the flight you are tracking continuously. You know what Gate, when it’s boarding, taking off, taxing, if it’s delayed, on time, etc... Don’t fly without it. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is Flightview information doesn’t sometimes easily text the right information, unless I just screen shot, to others. I’d like to have an option for the flight to link directly into my calendar (Google or Apple). That would be wonderful. Thanks.

Simply A Necessity

I have been using Flightview for many years. It has been an important staple in reference to travel whether I’m actually flying or picking someone else up. I find that it’s also really essential when you need to go to the airport for a departure or arrival. It tells you in advance whether the flight is going to be late, when it is landed, and a load of other good information. It even tells you the gate of arrival and departure! It will notify you as well of the flight status. So I don’t need to get to the airport and sit for hours because I didn’t know the plane was late. And if it’s early, the same thing applies. If Flightview charged a fee I would pay it, hands-down.

Useful Tool

I am a frequent traveler and find this tool very useful to track multiple trips and legs. I will also track incoming flights so that I have a good idea if I’m not going to make a connection and can make alternate plans in advance. One request from the developers: right now it appears that when I share my flight itinerary with someone such as my wife, Flightview merely throws my flight info into an email ready to send. The other person then needs to manually load the info into their app. It would be very helpful if I could send a file that the other person can simply load into Flightview on their phone. Or maybe there’s some other way to sync my flights onto their phone🤷🏻‍♂️ Thank you!

Love this app

Been using this for many years. It typically updates flight status before the actual airline does. I only do air travel about once every two years now. The version I had wouldn’t update flight status. I found the latest version and downloaded it and everything works now. I’d love to have the paid version yet $25 per year for a person who flies once every two years is way too steep. I’d go for a one time fee of say $10-$15. That’s it. So four stars because the paid version is too expensive. I guess I use the free version for now. In any case, I do love Flightview.

Great app

I never had an issue using Flightview. I use it for business and personal travel. It’s keeps me on track and gives me all the pertinent information I need for checking in (such as gate information or changes) to leaving the airport (such as baggage claim information). Many times this information is slowly provided or hard to come by. Flightview makes it easy to obtain up to date status and on many occasions quicker then the airline employees. Another great thing about Flightview is love ones can track your progress and know that you made it safely to your destination or know when you have arrived so they can pick you up.

Weak support for international flights

I cannot comment on the usefulness of Flightview 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 this app. In this app: 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) Flightview 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 Flightview . 5) Similarly, Flightview 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 Flightview only seems to add stuff of no use/interest to me. As it is, this app is barely usable for international travel.

Invaluable application for travelers

I’ve used Flightview for several years and have found it invaluable. Flightview gives up to the minute flight arrival and departure times and gates so you know if the flight you’re tracking is on time. You’ll know quicker than you’ll find out from a gate agent, that’s for sure. Many years ago, I traveled weekly so subscribed to the OAG Flight Guide which was about the size of an encyclopedia that I got in the mail monthly. I loved that for trip planning but Flightview is SOOOO much better for so many more things. My point being that OAG is the definitive source of truth for travelers. Thanks OAG for your service and Flightview!

Great App but Ad Frequency Annoying

I’ve used Flightview for many years and it is a great app for tracking flights and to see where the prior flights are coming from and if there are any delays. However recently Flightview has become almost unusable due to the increased frequency of the full screen ads. It seems like an add pops up every two or three screens. This it too much and is very annoying when trying to track multiple flights and navigate between pages. And often it is repeats of the same few ads. If I wasn’t interested in the add the first few times reshowing it only makes me mad and isn’t going to get me to click through. Why would o click through anyway? I’m trying to track flights not shop!


By

Why is everyone so upset about this great app?!?!

I’ve used Flightview 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). Flightview is severely underrated, and deserves much more appreciation than what it’s getting, especially when the this app 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

I used to use Flight Tracker but it’s gone. I have replaced it with Flightview. 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.

Amazing!

Flightview is one of the coolest apps I’ve ever seen. It is so user friendly and it is REALLY accurate. I’ve used it twice, once to track an international trip and just recently to track a domestic trip and both times I have been throughly satisfied with the set up, the notifications, the map and the information given on the “details” section. I’m a very nervous flyer, to a point where I feel nervous for my loved ones to fly and using Flightview genuinely gives me a huge piece of mind because I know that I can see accurate information on my families flights. I would recommend Flightview to anyone!!


By

Best by far!!

Flightview does the job exactly as described. No nonsense. Ads are there but hey, Flightview is free because of those ads. And trust me they are not intrusive or annoying at all. Flightview 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!!!!

Magical app combats delays with fiction

I’m not sure what’s going on with Flightview. It has been my reliable go-to for tracking multiple flights when family gets together. Twice this weekend, however, it has posted a false status for my flight. Two days ago we circled Chicago rather than landing, but Flightview showed us as “landed” even though we were still over Lake Michigan. We actually landed 30 min after Flightview said we did. Currently, our flight is delayed. There is no airplane even at our gate. 10 min ago, however, Flightview notified me that my flight had departed. The skies apparently are perfect through the rose-colored glasses of this tracker. Of course, if they were, we wouldn’t need a tracker app. And I may be in the market for a more accurate one.

Go-to app

I’ve flown more than a million and a half miles since I started on the road and I’ve used dozens of apps. Some I really liked, but they aren’t around anymore. So now this is my go-to app for flights. It’s not perfect (no iPad support), but it’s pretty great. It’s the most up-to-the minute app I use (I still use a couple others to track other reservations, hotel, etc.). It shows where your plane is coming from, and let’s you know exactly what’s happening with your plane until it gets to you, and what’s happening when you get on. I haven’t found a better flight app yet, and it’s free.

Tried about every flight tracker, always come back to this one.

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 Flightview offers for free. I have used Flightview 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 Flightview 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”

First Time User-not impressed

Well, I just downloaded Flightview 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. Flightview 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.

Great app

I’ve only used Flightview on occasion for personal flights and when picking up friends and family. I use to dread going to the airport for pickups and waiting for a call but with Flightview it’s a cinch! Long gone are the days of calling the airline and figuring out how to check flight schedules and arrival times. I used a couple other apps before but after I used this one I would say It’s the perfect app for flight tracking, everything here is easy to track and it’s fun, it feels like I’m the air traffic controller watching the plane as it arrives! Highly recommend

FlightTrack worked consistently better

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, Flightview 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 Flightview 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.
