Good example of 'dual use' technology. Off the shelf aerial targeting. Get info about any flight overhead.

@shloky it actually uses our global network of ADS-B receivers to get the positions of the flights. We then overlay this information using AR

For some reason I’m getting the sense that something happened that upset some people in your most recent update... What was it, and what are you doing to fix it? As a developer, this is awesome. As a customer, I’m left wondering what’s wrong with it and am hesitant to spend $2.99 to find out.

I have been waiting for someone to make something like this. See a flight, figure out what it is, and where it is going.

I am the creator of this app. You have the name slightly wrong, it is “Plane Finder AR”. Thanks for hunting!

Most big planes buzzing nearby me are C-130’s practicing from the Joint Military Base 😬 anyway, best wishes!
