I love it! - I been watcing it and I cannot believe how neat it is to see a plane inflight when it left the airport! Great flight status! Only one misconception missing the rest of the map of the world. I noticed that Australia is missing the other half, otherwise fantastic application to watch air traveling!, if anyone looking for this buy it. It is fantastic! You will know where the plane is when it is traveling for sure! It shows it while no interruption happens. You need to see it! Enjoy it! :)

Waste of Money - Don't waste your money on the app. The web version is so much better. Slow to load and not as accurate as the web version. Wish I had not purchased.

Review by wmfla

Save your money and buy the iPad version - This desktop version ought to have at least as many features as the dinky iPad app, right? Not so. The iPad version has better maps and has a 3D view capability that lets you see what it might look like to be in the cockpit as the plane flies, including take-offs and landings. (Positions of the planes are estimated, so there are frequent shifts in the position and altitutde of the planes.) I will continue using the iPad version of FlightRadar24, but will ignore this desktop version until it has been updated with better maps and 3D views.

The Mac app pales next to the iPad and iPhone versions - The OS X version lack so many of the best features you get on the iOS version. Save your money. Do not buy.

Pathing is Needed - Seeing flight in real-time is fine, but it would be SO EASY to add a function to show the PATHS of aircraft. Just draw a line from data-point to data-point. I have done this myself in my own software, but if implemented in THIS App, it would be great. And PLEASE let me record flight-path data as an image (every x minutes, or over a 10-hour period). Just lines for the flightpaths – THAT will make this a great app.
