    It has been unlimited for years on the old app.
    What about max 100 alerts.

    I mean the old app is unlimited for only 2,99 for ever and 20 for 39,95 in the new app for a year ??
    Seems a bit off.

    100 ?

    Web and apps are sharing same accounts and subscriptions, just like Spotify or Netflix. You get one account and use it on any unit you want.

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

    I figured I didn't have anything to lose installing the only missing one (free version). My Pro and Premium are rather old, but if it aint broke...

    I now have 3 versions.

    Pro - v6 - no ads and no optional boards I added

    Premium - v6 - uses my acct login and unlocks more features

    Free.. V7 - without subscriber login it is limited. You can be a pre existing member or feeder like me, or sign up and subscribe in-app
    ...
    Thanks a lot for your clarification!

    I know, and I've already used that for a long time. So, I would suspect to be able to use the "Gold features" in the new app, too, without having to pay again. Regarding the premium plans on the web site I would judge this assumption as proved. But confirmation would be appreciated.

    On the main screen there is a login. On entering my web details....



    So my first hunch was correct.

    The app is now an all in 1 version that unlocks. The previous paid unlock pro remains that but less detailed.

    I expect so. But will await confirmation too.. As mobile features are listed under the plans now. The major part being no ads and more info on anything other than free. https://www.flightradar24.com/premium

    Prior to this, you needed the premium version which asks for login details.

    If you want to join our new platform with new features shared between web and apps, you can download the new Flightradar24 app or use the web page.
    The new platform can be used for free with limited features, or with a subscription if you want more features.

    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 enthusiasts.

    This is what I can gather viewing the revisions on the play store.

    Remember there was different versions?
    FR24Free (very basic)
    FR24 pro (1-off payment with more features and upgrade options of boards/flight info if wanted)
    Premium (for premium user use)

    If you have 'Flightradar24Pro' installed. (use to come with more, but cost and then optional addons) This is version 6. And includes features purchased. (and no ads!) But will not be updated here on in with new features the website may introduce.

    Free version use to be limited. But now released as version 7, which appears to have the in-app options moved to it including subscription upgrade unlocks via login method.

    If you paid the 1-off and use pro. Nothing changes. But will not have extra updates that may be introduced.

    If you subscribe, I would suggest the free version needs to be updated and logged into now.
