    Well I think this is the first time I have seen such an honest and very open reply which certainly puts your business case in total perspective.

    Slightly strange to compare your app to buying petrol and milk but hey ho.

    I will now reconsider my choices and I thank you for your honest reply.

    Hi guys. I just installed the new app and upgraded to silver.

    In the standard display mode there's this big rectangular space with yellow fine grid cover from the very top of the map, west of France down to about equator and across north/Central America all the way to the very eastern tip of Russia. This only shows in both the standard and the hybrid mode and not in the satellite mode. Inside this space there's no map or any geographical features but the little plane symbols and the airport pins can still be seen.

    I have deleted the app, restarted my iPad and installed it, yet problem remains. I also download the new app to a 2 me iPad and it's exactly the same. Both devices are iPad Pro.

    I'd appreciate if anyone can assist.

    Many thanks.

    I joined the gold subscription but was disappointed with the 20 custom alert limit.

    I want to track all RAF Voyagers and have set an alert for the reg ZZ3 thinking this will catch them all and just use one alert slot. However, I've not had a single hit. What am I doing wrong? Look forward to a reply and news on future alert changes.

    Any ideas when we can expect any feedback as to why the IOS Alerts are being sent 10 minutes later than via Android / Web? I have reinstalled the new app. Still no luck. It's disappointing that many of the alerts I receive - for example for a particular aircraft flying without ADS-B but using Multilaterisation of Mode S - have disappeared from coverage before I get an alert on IOS 10.3.3 (iPhone 6S Plus) and that on the forum, there has been no reaction to the screen shots I have posted. Worse, these alerts are actually 8 - 10 minutes LATER than other competitors of Flight Radar 24..... makes a mockery of why we should pay for 'gold' standard when even the basic service of other suppliers is significantly better than Flight Radar....

    Here are my test results about Notifications IOS vs Android.
    The last 2 weeks I have used 2 Iphones (one with IOS 10 and one with IOS 11) and 2 Android Devices. (Samsung note and Nexus 6P running Android 7 and version 8)

    Added the alert registration PH-BXA (global) and PH-KZU (global)
    It seems the delay between the Android vs IOS became much better than before (IOS was always 5-10 minutes later)

    BUT !!!
    From the 30 alerts on the Androids of the PH-BXA and PH-KZU only 19 arrived on the Iphone !! (Both Iphones missed 11 alerts !!)
    I did test this because I had a feeling my Iphone was missing notifications very often.
    Maybe it’s because you use different servers for push notifications for Android vs IOS ?
    I hope you can figure out what is going on here..

    Hello,

    Could you confirm that the old app is not working anymore with alert Notifications.
    I haven't seen any notifications for the last weeks from the old app !?

    Push alerts

    Exactly the same on my iPhone 6. This is really bullshit we are paying a lot for this feature.
    The old app no alerts any more. Fixed fast.

    Zero alerts today from the PH-KZU and PH-BXA on the IOS devices.
    Android was spot on.Bestand 16-10-17 11 03 05.jpg
