Flightradar24, an app that lets you watch flight traffic from around the world, has a new free version. The ad-supported app carries over many of the features of the paid app, and radar coverage around the world.
Flightradar24 lets you watch planes move in mostly real time. You can also get some information about individual flights, such as flight number and callsign of an aircraft. Flightradar24 has an augmented reality view on some devices which allows you to see what flights are above you by pointing your device's camera at the sky. You can also search for flights to see where they are, and browse images of most aircraft.
The app has access to data from all over the world. It has complete coverage of the U.S. and Canada using FAA data, including real-time data over large swaths of both countries. Most of Europe is covered as well. Flightradar24 also has data from several other countries, including Russia, Australia, and Brazil.
You can download Flightradar24 Free from the Windows Phone Store right now.
