Why do some aircraft have yellow and other orange color?

Yellow aircraft get their data from ADS-B receivers around the world, and are plotted in real time. Orange aircraft get their data from FAA and are delayed by about 5 minutes. You can read more about ADS-B and FAA on our ABOUT pages.

I have previously bought the app for iOS and now bought an Android phone, can I transfer my app?

Google Play market and Apple App Store are 2 completely different stores without any connection so it's not possible to transfer apps between different platforms.


Why is the Flightradar24 not working on my Android unit?

Flightradar24 is built based on "Google Maps API" and "Google Play Services". Google apps for Android, such as YouTube, Google Maps and Navigation, Gmail, and so on are Google properties that are not part of Android, and are licensed separately. That means that a unit that is not Google certified, will not have all necessary files that are needed by Flightradar24 to work ("Google Maps API" and "Google Play Services"). Even if you hack your unit and install Google Play and Google Maps, there are still files missing in the system and Flightradar24 will not work. If you want to be sure that you can run Flightradar24 on your Android unit, make sure to buy a GOOGLE CERTIFIED unit from one of the major brands on the market.



Flightradar24 app is running very slow on my Android unit, what can I do to make it faster?
The map tiles are reloading all the time, what can I do to make it stop reloading?

Number of aircraft is increasing all the time on Flightradar24 which means that the app needs processor power and more memory to handle the increased amount data. If you have an old phone with a slow processor or low amount of RAM memory, there are some settings you can change to make the app run faster.

* Change "Plane movement" from "realtime" to "8 seconds"
* Remove "FAA data"
* Remove "Show ground traffic"
* Remove "Show airports"
* Remove "Show aircraft info"

You can also clear/flush memory in the phone/tablet before running Flightradar24 app. This can be done in "task manager" on the phone or by a special memory cleaning app. We recommend at least 250-500 MB free memory to run Flightradar24 to avoid reloading map tiles.
