  1. Sticky: Add plus and minus Zoom buttons to the map

    Add plus and minus Zoom buttons, so we don't need our two fingers to mess with the map, often messing up the position etc. in the process.
  2. Sticky: Second route line on the map: simply if they continued on their same azimuth

    In addition to the route of great circle, please add a second line, the line that would be if they continued on their present azimuth.

    And, on this second line, add markers where the plane will be...
  3. Sticky: Cache the map to save 99% of the user's data bill

    In fact by simply caching the map, probably 99% of the user's data bill could be avoided.

    For instance here I am in Taiwan, I really only need just a few tiles and it could last me for months. No...
  4. Sticky: Cache map upon closing, for faster startup next time

    Cache maps upon closing the app, to enable faster startup when opening the app later.

    There is good chance the user might be quite nearby where he was when he closed the app next time he opens the...
  5. Sticky: Add "cone of sound" overlay to the map

    Add an optional so-called cone of sound overlay to the map. Thus people could pretty much predict when they will begin hearing a plane based on the advancing so-called cone of sound line reaching...
  6. Sticky: Offer Openstreetmaps

    Allowing the user to select openstreetmaps as a background, would save the company license fees to Google. That way more features could be put into the free app. Openstreetmaps is more than...
  7. Sticky: Employ the cell phone's magnetic compass to correctly rotate the map

    I am sitting pointed south. However the map is permanently pointed north. It would be great if the cell phone's magnetic compass was used to rotate the map to match which way our cell phone is...
  8. Sticky: Allow users to turn off their GPS, thus saving power

    The app should allow users to turn off their GPS, thus saving power, by offering a config item to remember current position.
    That's how many star watching sky maps apps work.
    Not all users are...

    Render planes first

    I have a bookmark
    http://www.flightradar24.com/24.24,120.88/12
    that I press oh, once a day, every time a funny sounding plane
    flies overhead. Alas, one needs to wait for the entire
    web page to be...

  11. Filter: only show planes ABOVE a certain speed

    The filter allows one to show only planes below a certain speed.
    It would be great if one could also only show planes (equal and) above a certain speed!

    OK I marked it as just an idea if ever implementing a full API.
    Those parameters could probably come direct from

    No. The idea of the URL is that I can share the exact same view with other users, or with myself for a later date.

    Yes, the cookies work fine to remember things if one is using the same browser on...

    URL doesn't store map type selected

    Possible ideas for full API and/or interactive URLs:

    The current URL doesn't store map type selected, only the position and zoom.
    Also one should be able to set and store the locale e.g., zh-tw....

    Thought there is Playback in the upper left corner of the website,
    the clock in the upper right corner should not be neglected:
    it should be fully adjustable. The user should be able to set any...

    Does Google show other people's "home" and "work"?

    Map should show my position

    The user should be allowed to enter the coordinates of his position into the settings,
    enabling a pin to be shown there on the map always.
