    Dear FR24 Team,

    Just downloaded the new iOS app and I have to say that the design is fantastic, great job guys! I really like the new layout and general app navigation. The detail displayed for every flight, which now mirrors the website version, is amazing.

    Just one major setback that I'm having is that the following is not being displayed for any flight:

    1. Actual flight path flown before tapping on an aircraft icon (ie it will just show the actual path flown after I tap on a particular flight).
    2. Flight times (actual take-off time, estimated arrival time).

    Has anyone else reported this? Is anything being done to correct it?

    I'm running the recently released app logged in with a Gold subscription on an iPhone 6 Plus with iOS v10.2.1.

    Best,
    Bernie

    Why no rich notifications ?

    Why not notifications like android has for some time now:

    Flight number
    Type of aircraft
    Registration
    Route

    IOS is capable of receiving more info within a notification.
    You already got an answer in an another thread

    There will be some quite big changes to alerts in a coming app update to make them easier and better, but unlimited will not be back.

It is totally a rip off that you just dont support It anymore without providing tranfer of those purchase to this new version. Please take a look at how Tomtom, Kayak etc. deal with their old customers.
    The old Pro app keeps working with the same specifications and features it had initially. Users who bought it can still download it and use all the in-apps. So nothing has changed with the Pro app. For queries about past purchases, please email us at support@fr24.com

    So saved custom filters is also heavy load on the server ? I think not.
    Max 20 saved custom filters for the most expensive subscription ?
    This really must be a joke ?

    Well I will use the old app for as long as it will work.
    After that no more usage of the best app ever on my devices.

    Thanks for the superb time

    20 alerts means 20 push notifications maximum per month?
    Or 20 different custom notification which can be pushed much more when the custom alerts is actual?

    What about future plans for unlimited alerts ?
    I already have much more than 20 in the old app.

    Platinum 50 dollars unlimited alerts ??
    Seems silly only 20 alerts for the most expensive subscription.

    Seriously??
    20 alerts max for 39.95 a year ?

    Unlimited for this price is more justified.
    I might consider paying this amount of money every year for unlimited alerts.
    But 20 no way never.

    Gold should have been unlimited alerts.
    Please consider.
    Otherwise a no go for me and more aircraft enthusiast

    The old Pro app will not be updated any more, but it will keep working.
    All focus is now on the new app that is sharing platform and subscription with the web.

    Previously purchased FlightRadar24 Pro for iOS

    Will FlightRadar24 Pro no longer be supported?

    Do people who purchased the Pro iOS app receive any of the upgrade benefits with the new app?


    Just a couple questions I have about the update. Thanks!

    Download for free today and discover why millions are already tracking flights and checking flight status with Flightradar24.


    FLIGHTRADAR24 IOS DOWNLOAD LINK

    • Watch aircraft move around the world in real-time

    • Search for individual flights using flight number, airport, or airline
    • Filter flights by airline, aircraft, altitude, speed, & more
    • Get a detailed list of all flights in the air in your area on your Apple Watch

    Flightradar24 is a free app and includes all the above features. If you want even more great features from Flight radar24 | Flight Tracker there are two upgrade options—Silver & Gold—and each comes with a free trial.

    Flightradar24 Silver
    • 60 days of flight history

    If you choose to upgrade to a Silver or Gold subscription, a payment will be charged to your iTunes account at the end of the free trial period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your account settings in the iTunes Store. Silver and Gold upgrade prices are listed in the app as they vary depending on your country and currency. No cancelation of current subscriptions is allowed during the active subscription period.

    HOW IT WORKS
    Most aircraft today are equipped with ADS-B transponders that transmit positional data. Flightradar 24 has a rapidly growing network of 15,000+ ground stations around the world to receive this data that then shows up as aircraft moving on a map in the app. In an expanding number of regions, with the help of multilateration, we’re able to calculate the positions of aircraft that don’t have ADS-B transponders. Coverage in North America is also supplemented by real-time radar data. Coverage is variable and subject to change at any time.

    If you have any questions about the New Flightradar24 iOS App please post in this thread.
