OBVIOUSLY US BIASEDI haven't used the app often. But it'd be expected to work whenever you did. The one time I come on and try to listen to Melbourne Australia, surprise surprise...it's not available. And away you go..Version: 1.9.0

WeridI have an iphone 4 and an iPad mini i can get cyeg on my iPad but not phone fix it.Version: 1.8.1

No archive accessI bought the application to listen to archive on my phone, but the app doesn’t offer this option, even if it is possible on their website..Version: 2.1

Not available in ukUnfortunately App Store doesn’t tell you that not available in uk therefore a waste of £3.99 if wanting to use it here 😢.Version: 2.1

Good app, could be betterIt just seems like this app does not have a lot of user-friendly support where you can make complaints on certain feeds for example I listen to the Oakland international airport feed and I am bombarded with ATS automated terminal service I believe constant information they used to have a separate Channel for the main tower that is off-line now and they do not give an exclamation why it’s off-line and enough information to users to find out if that particular feet can be replaced it’s like it’s there one day and gone the next and no reason is given no updates or anything like that on any of these scanner type police radio apps or airport apps that’s just not right and unfortunate to the developer can you please put in some more helpful support so users can get in contact with the feed providers and if they are not up to par find someone else who can do the main towers for Oakland international airport sorry I’m so picky about this but it just seems unnecessary to listen to the automated terminal information stuff when you want to listen to the main runway and tower and the seeds do not sound the same 1 feet is stronger than the other was two speakers thank you.Version: 2.2.1

PoorUsed to be good but now poor most of Europe now gone and buffers for England..Version: 1.9.0

Tower @ YYZ Toronto, Ontario not workingThe tower feed from the control tower doesn't work, only the arrival works. I would like to listen to the tower feed as well. Not happy with that..Version: 1.9.0

Total rubbishThere many other countries not working with this app just refund please.Version: 1.9.0

OkWhen I first got the app a little while ago it worked great and I had a lot of fun using it. Now however, it seems to have a major problem with connectivity and it seems like every airport I have tried is not connected or as the app puts it , a streaming error. I wonder if this is fixable..Version: 2.1.1

No UK airports?Am I blind, or can I not see any airports from the Uk. Very disappointed..Version: 2.1.1

Can’t listen on multiple channrlsI like to monitor multiple channels at once, the app doesn’t allow this and yet you can with the free LiveATC website by opening up multiple browser windows..Version: 2.3.0

Channels are not guaranteedAs a student pilot one of the last things to check off my list is controlled airspace. No big deal, I use the radio regularly but is is nice to listen to Live ATC to get familiar with order of operation. Every day for a week or so after purchasing the app I listened to KDSM which is not far from my home and where I will be flying in and out of. After a short time the channel just disappeared off my list of channels. I can listen to other airports and get the basics but it is not the same as becoming familiar with your home airspace. I’ve been waiting to see if it come back and roughly two months later it has not. 5 stars easy if it was dirt cheap or free, or if I got the frequencies I wanted..Version: 2.1.1

Probably good in some countriesNo NZ coverage. Disappointed..Version: 1.7.3

MisleadingSold in UK but can’t use I’m UK. Completely pointless. I want my money back..Version: 2.3.0

Yyc outdatedThe airport map is outdated by atleast 2years, doesn't show the new 14,000 ft runway.Version: 1.9.0

KIAH Frequencies Still BadBoth KIAH Approach & Tower Frequencies are still terrible for going on 4 Weeks now and again My chief complaint about this APP is that there is nobody to contact to find out if anyone is working on the issue or not?? I cannot hear the Pilots nor the Tower for KIAH Approach nor the KIAH Tower - just a lot of noisy static - so I have to often come here to the review page but I’d like to avoid doing this so PLEASE get a contact email so listeners do not have to come here to the APP Store and complain that they cannot hear the Stations😖..Version: 2.3.0

Where did Sydney go?This was one of my favorite apps until last week when all the Sydney channels became unavailable! Please restore the Sydney international ATC channels so that I can recommend this app to my friends and Neighbours again....Version: 2.0.1

MrUseless in uk.Version: 2.1.1

Something changed :(Up until a week ago, I would have given this app 5 stars easy. But for the past week, all I hear is static. Sometimes I can hear voices, but mostly loud static. This is a huge bummer as I loved listening to this as I am a student pilot in training. Worked fine until a week ago. My girlfriend who has this app on her phone says the same thing. Not sure what changed but hopefully they fix it. If this app gets fixed, I would happily give it a 5 star rating..Version: 2.1

NO UK AIRPORTSNo UK airports.Version: 1.9.0

It could be better!!! But here are my problems1.stations are available one day and off the next. Not as reliable as I would want. 2.its not free, thus making me think that they would put in effort to try and keep stations that they already have! Not relying on (us) people to do the work for them and add the stations. It's good but not great. But I still like it. They just need to put more work on it..Version: 1.9.0

CVG Airport was not on the listNot happy with App. I was at CVG airport viewing and saw the sign to download this app while I was there with the kids. So I thought this would be good for the kids to hear and I bought the app. well, once it downloaded, CVG was not even a option. This was very misleading, considering the sign even says to type in CVG. I spend $4.00 for nothing. I tried to contact the APP, but could not find any info! What a WASTE!.Version: 1.9.0

Update ProblemsI don't understand why your new update deleted a majority of the frequencies on the app that I actually used. KMCO had a good 8 channels and now there's only two. I used to use KISM for their information since it's a local airport, now I cannot. I paid for the full version, it was great, all the way up until yesterday when it decided to update and remove everything. Please fix this.....Version: 1.9.0

Can’t use in UKTotal con of an app. They know where you are when you buy it. Just sort of figured they wouldn’t be selling to a UK based buyer if they knew it couldn’t be used.Version: 2.1.1

Search lackingLove the app, very clear and easy to access. The one thing it lacks is the facility to just put in a frequency and it bring it up. And I wish it had the frequency next to each airport or ATC when it lists it.Version: 2.1.1

MisleadingDoes not say that it will not pick up UK airports yet is for sale in the Uk. Money back please..Version: 2.2.1

Not greatLet’s see if this review stays. I posted another with 1star it disappeared. I purchased this app 2 months ago. I live in CYZF. It doesn’t work 90% of the time I get channel down notice. It’s garbage..Version: 2.3.0

YSBUWhy won't Sunshine Coast airport work, can this be fixed.Version: 1.9.0

How do I get a refund?This I poor app. It doesn’t provide adequate coverage..Version: 2.1

Kicking myselfNot the apps fault but mine. Wish I had read the small print before purchasing for the UK..Version: 2.1.1

No U.K. airportsShame no U.K. airports covered,.Version: 2.0.2

Brisbane hasn't worked in weeksWhy hasn't Brisbane worked in weeks? Starting to get really annoyed with this!.Version: 1.9.0

A little deceivingWas super excited because my local airport was listed when I purchased the app... 2 days later, it has been removed. I'm hoping that I just had bad luck and this doesn't happen to most people who purchase this app for a specific location, but I did want to share my concerns. It's a great app, but I probably would not have purchased if I would've know that my local airport would never connect and would be removed 2 days after my purchase. Waste of $3.99 in my opinion, so be careful if you're looking for a specific region....Version: 1.9.0

ATCWhy most of the airports in Africa not covered?.Version: 2.3.0

YowI got this app to listen locally. It is never available for YOW which is where I do my plane watching..Version: 1.7.3

Constant bufferingI've set the buffer to high but still it freezes and pauses whilst buffering even though my mobile and home internet is fine, other programs run well such as the Police Scanner, etc. Shame there's no UK feeds but blame the dated UK laws for that, but Dublin is near and good enough :).Version: 1.9.0

YOW Not WorkingI loved the App used it twice then the Ottawa feed stopped working.Version: 1.7.3

Many feeds are horrible and not maintained.I believe that the platform is just fine. A bit antiquated but it works. However, many of the feeds are poorly maintained and very noisy. Lots of channels are not actually working and no one cares about it. I sent notice to the developer and nothing happens. For example, CLT only has departures and no approach. Controller transmissions are noisy and low quality. SJU approach and departures you can only hear a loud hum and one way traffic. Not sure how that can happen for so long without someone looking over. You know, I paid for the app. It’s not free and for that we expect a good level of service..Version: 2.3.0

Not very happyMost airport connections are really poor. Can’t connect. Not recommended to buy..Version: 2.1.1

Needs a fix for AustraliaGuys - good app except your website lists Canberra as being 'up' and available for the app, but once you buy the app, canberra is not offered or available. Bit poor for a paid app. Hardly worth suing for false advertising though for 3 bucks......Version: 1.7.3

Me too - no NZ airports!No matter how often I try, the application says there is no airport within 100 ks. Utter nonsense - two in the vicinity. Auckland International and Ardmore. Doesn't even detect nearby aircraft in the vicinity. Pity it doesn't allow loading by frequencies. Extremely disappointed. Additional comment: having just been to Auckland International airport and being told there were no airports within 100 ks, I have decided that this is useless to me. Yet another application I will turn off/ Still useless to NZers. February 2013..Version: 1.7.3

Really poor quality audio - space telescope!!Clearly stated on the information was the lack of coverage in the UK. This APP has a huge selection of ATC streams which is great. What isn't great is that for most of the 30+ channels I have tried now, one side of the conversation is completely inaudible. It's usually the controller who is swamped by static / low quality data noise but often it's also the crew. It sounds like your listening to static from a space telescope!! You have to use earphones and have to have the volume turned right up. Not really worth the money that you fork out at all!!.Version: 1.7.3

Won’t stop playing in the backgroundWhen I’m done with the app on my iPad I swipe to close, yet the app will somehow turn on and connect to my headphones or car Bluetooth if my iPad signal is left on. This app for whatever reason just starts playing even though it isn’t loaded/opened. It’s quite annoying. Other than that the app works well though the radio are difficult to hear though that’s common in aviation anyway. Over all worth the money I just wish it only turned on when I told it to..Version: 2.2.1

Not as good as I thoughtIt has USA, but nothing from the UK. Very limited countries actually at the moment. I should’ve read all the reviews. Even the airports they have don’t work for me, so personally it is hopeless for me..Version: 2.2.1

No New Zealand airportsI was disappointed to see that even our biggest airport (auckland) was not included also Wellington and Christchurch (my home town) would be good..Version: 0

Needs improvementCould you please please make this app compatible with the IPad or at least make one for the iPad, also need to fix the speed when you click on an area it is so slow to connect.Version: 1.7.3

Does not work on iPhone 5 / iOS 7.1.2Just quits after splash screen.Version: 1.8.3

No UK AirportsCannot pick up any UK airports at all..Version: 2.3.0

Why won't Brisbane work?Brisbane airport won't work and hasn't for months. Can you please fix this soon.Version: 1.9.0

Adding UK airportsI love it a lot and I’m glad I bought it but I only enjoy the Jfk tower one if there was a London Heathrow LHR or Gatwick or any UK airports it would make it so much more Fun I would rate it 5 stars and use it everyday.Version: 2.2.1

If in uk don't buyDon't work in uk.Version: 1.9.0

Adds onNeed to improve to add interesting recording from the original website and ability to listen to the archives.Version: 1.9.0

Not enough placesThere are no British airports on this. Not even Heathrow. Not at once did this say this. I’m ashamed this is £4.Version: 2.0.2

UselessBrisbane not working most times. No updates for over a year now. How frustrating. What's going on?.Version: 1.9.0

Essendon Airport Victoria AustraliaI’m not happy with Essendon Airport frequencies being down for a very long time. Why hasn’t this been fixed?.Version: 2.1.1

Don't buyTried for 1 hour to find one channel anywhere that worked. All were "unavailable". I should be given a refund. This app is a fraud..Version: 0

Good but can be improvedNot a bad app. As a training airline pilot, I find it a good learning tool. In future you might want to think of putting seperate channels on for each airport ie departures, director, tower, ground etc. As sometimes the calls are jumbled ,seem incohesive or the start of the 2 way conservation from ATC is cut off. How come some airports are not available all the time? Like Hong Kong and Japan?.Version: 0

Melbourne Center/Tower has been down for monthsHey guys, Why has this frequency been down for so long and are there any plans to fix this? It’s my local airport and I’m really keen to listen in and watch the radar for pilot training purposes. Thanks 🙌🤘.Version: 2.1.1

Latest Version Is A Big Step BackwardsThe latest version starts with a message in red NO CHANNEL SELECTED even though it is playing one. A lot of the time when I try to select a channel by hitting the blue bar SELECT CHANNEL it will kick me back to CHANGE CHANNEL screen. When first starting it doesn’t start with the channel I last listened to. Also what the heck is the Blue bar at the bottom with the L and R on either side..Version: 2.3.0

Good but...Great app but 2 issues. I could not get it to shut off on my iPhone 10 . I finally had to delete it completely . Also for ktvc, only ground and center frequencies are available. Most useful would be tower, esp so I can gauge activity before leaving home . Sound was great, clear . But, can’t keep adding and deleting app every time I want to use it..Version: 2.2.1

Doesn’t include UKDespite appearing under a search for ‘Live ATC UK’ the app doesn’t cover the UK air traffic control network. Very disappointing..Version: 2.3.0

Arc liveTells you to check your country is supported but could not do that until I paid for the app £3.99 wasted as UK NOT SUPPORTED REFUND PLEASE.Version: 2.2.1

No reply when asking a queryVery disappointed we have requested several times asking when YBBN Brisbane will be up again, we simply don’t get any reply!.Version: 2.1

No uk coverage 😡No coverage if UK airports ! No indication if this in App Store - not happy Refund please 😤.Version: 2.0.2

When the streams work, it's a good appBut when they don't work it's pretty pointless, especially as the app doesn't seem to give access to the archive files! Why is that?.Version: 2.2.1

DisappointingMost of my designated airport communications are ‘down’. Keep trying to connect but I just keep getting a generic ’sorry. We are working on it’. Disappointed so far & not worth paying for either..Version: 2.2.1

Disappointed - app offers much less than the free websiteFirst, the UX is one of the worst I’ve seen so far. Favorites are almost useless, looking for a station is not a great experience and above all, there is no archive available. I should not have paid for the app… disappointed:(.Version: 2.3.0

Opening UI Screen worseThis program functionality is still great. LiveATC remains the "go to" app for aviation buffs. The The overall UI seems less polished then previous versions. Particularly noticeable is the opening screen, that is more crude then the more polished versions of the past..Version: 1.9.0

LackingI bought this App to listen to ATC at my local airport which is Moorabbin in Melbourne Australia. This is the biggest GA airport in the whole state and the leading training airport in Australia. This app can’t even see that the airport exists. Very disappointing..Version: 2.2.1

Total rubbishI have never picked up one solitary stream from this App. It says “streaming error” on every single frequency. I have a fully up to date iPad 2018 Pro using ax200 mbps wi fi signal in the UK. Avoid....Version: 2.1.1

Awesome app to use howeverI don’t like the audio quality, if that could be improved just to understand thing a bit more clear that would be perfect.Version: 2.0.2
