    Indeed! I've check only planes without pictures :-) But maybe add external links to other web pages for planes without pictures in flightradar?
    Other suggestion is to possibility to hide black frame when I want to see just track of the plane. It is quite big and can hide a lot of screen.
    Generally I'm really surprised how great is PRO version :-)

      On v2.0 trying to access settings results in application force closing. Device is HTC Desire with Cyanogen mod 6.1 (Android 2.2 Froyo). Previous versions worked perfectly.
      Anyone with the same problem?


      Suggestion: it would be nice to round the corners on the app icon, it looks a bit harsh with the white rectangle background

        Same here with Acer Liquid and Froyo.

        Thank you for the AR Feature!

          Ditto, trying to access Settings crashes the app on my Dell Streak.

            Today we realeased V2.0 of Flightradar24 Pro for Android. The new version now includes Augmented reality. There was a release this morning that contained a bug that some phones couldn't access the settings-file, but this has been fixed in a release just a couple of minutes ago.

              The AR View sounds like a really neat idea but it doesn't really work on my Streak. It jumps back and forth and interestingly when I turn left the labels go left too on the screen (pretty much the opposite of what it should do).
              Maybe this could be the problem? http://android-developers.blogspot.c...s-another.html

                Magnetometer needs calibration after switching it on. So every app using magnetometer needs that to work correctly.
                For calibration you move the device in an 8 shaped manor. have a look at this video.
                http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YCyIsNhHQc
                For me a bigger 8 works better. There are other methods to do this. One is to rotate the device several times in each of its three axes.
                Also search net with keywords "android magnetometer calibration".

                  wange, thanks, that might help with the flickering a bit but still, the tags go the other way when I turn: to the left on the screen when turning and vice versa. That's obviously not the correct behaviour. So my though was that maybe it's the problem mentioned in the link above, since the Dell Streak is a device with landscape as the default position.

                  btw, I'd like to repeat my request (please please ) for a terrain view! I'm sure it can't be any more complicated than the sattelite view
                  And another thing, it would be great if the plane tag would display speed too (plane type and start/destination would be great too [1]), that's interesting when watching landing or changes of flight level etc.
                  Thanks!

                  [1] but I understand that not all devices have so big screens as mine does - but an option in settings to switch that would be great!

                    I have already answered several times. Terrain view is NOT available on mobile platforms.

                      Mike, thanks for the reply, sorry if I missed it somewhere but I definitely can't find it in this thread...
                      Strange that it can be used in google maps but not in other apps
                      Anyway, thanks again

                        I think it's strange too, but there is no terrain option in the mobile API, and I have never seen any app with the terrain view.

                        The android developer link that was posted some posts ago only applies to version 2.2 of Android. And that is the big problem with developing for android, there are so many different phones, hardware, versions of the OS, and screen resolutions that makes it hard almost impossible to try an app on all phones. We will continue on improving the app. SonyEricsson has just released version 2.1 of Android for X10 mini, so I think that in the near future most phones will have Android version 2.x, so we can drop 1.x support next year.

                                Love this app!

                                Have the pro version on my Samsung Galaxy S.
                                Works perfectly! What a great app to have by the airport!
