FlightRadar24 - Plane Finder: Comparison

I’ve bought both: Plane Finder and FlightRadar24 for Android. I am experiencing some differences and there are some things that one app can better than the other one. Which one should I use? I’ve made a comparison to show you what I mean:

1.) First Look

What I like about Plane Finder is that it fits the Android Material Desing better than FlightRadar. This makes Plane Finder easier to use and FlightRadar looks a bit old and not well developed. However, as you can see FlightRadar had 13,088 in their database, Plane Finder only 9510. Then, FlightRadar shows up to 500 planes at once and that’s clearly more than Plane Finder does.

2.) Aircraft information

3.) Departure and arrival boards



This is very difficult. FlightRadar gives detailed information about all flights in the near future and the past while Plane Finder shows flights which have departed and are in the air. You can’t see flights in the future. A point for FlightRadar.

4.) Filters



Plane Finder allows you to set multiple Filters at once, FlightRadar doesn’t.

5.) Issues

  • Missing information

  • Just take a look

  • Wrong airline logo
    For example I’ve noticed that Plane Finder uses the old Eurowings logo and the new Air Europa logo and FlightRadar uses the new Eurowings logo and the old Air Europa logo.


Which one would you use?

  • FlightRadar24
  • Plane Finder
