Plane Finder works by picking up real time ADS-B signals used by aircraft to transmit 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.

Wow, is this bad. - Has a long way to go. All the planes are blue, meaning the liveries are not accurate. Ascending and descending pitches are far from accurate. Airports are not clearly marked. World is limited to a local square. Interface is unpolished. Keep at it and it could eventually be cool.

Plane Finder 3D - Not ready just yet!!! - This app is not ready for prime time yet. Lot’s of potential, but no love just yet. Wished I would have read reviews first. Most of my other Pinkfroot apps are outstanding so it’s a mystery why this is so poor. I would gladly trade away all the 3D options to have it look more like Plane Finder HD for the ipad.
Junk - Terrible graphics…totally useless...
Useless - You cannot track individual flights of your choosing with this app. What you can do is watch a bunch of airplane renderings flying over major world cities. This helps almost no one, anywhere.
Extremely Horrible Application - This is an extremely buggy application, I don't know how this made it to production. The planes are not represented by type, the 3d rending is terrible, flight angles aren't even clost to realistic and the 3D flyme feature is a joke.
plane finder - Poorly represented and useless. Money should be returned.
