Valley App of the Week: FlightRadar 24

Posted: Updated:

It's one of the busiest travel times of the year and if you have family flying in for the holiday's this week's Valley App of the Week will let you track their plane from take off to landing right on your phone.

FlightRadar 24 turns your smart phone or tablet into an air traffic radar.

It's easily the most popular flight tracking app, offering real time airplane traffic around the world.

The free version is a great way to play around, you can see planes moving in real-time and get the airline and call sign information.  Cool to look at but the features are pretty much non-existent.

The Flight Radar 24 pro version is another story.  It's almost a "must have" for aviation geeks and airplane lovers.

It will cost you $0.99 up front and also offers several in-app upgrades you can buy, but with features like route, speed, and altitude for each plane, search tools to find specific flights or airlines and an augmented reality view that let's you identify planes flying overhead just by pointing your camera to the sky, it is worth it.

Is this an app you need to use every day, no, is it an app you will find yourself using every day, yes.
