  • What’s going on?!

    By im the investor
    The app has been down for over a week for kpsm. Please send status or refund the cost.
  • Learning tool

    By aviatorstu
    This app has greatly helped me improve My radio communications and made me get Better grades in aviation school. I focus usually on my local region. Or I listen to other airports that I’m planning to fly into.
  • Dang it !!!

    By ipodly
    What happen ? This was a Great app, now I can’t pull up the airports I like the most. Are they going to fix this ???
  • Works Perfectly

    By Jercube
    As I’m writing this I am listening to a Southwest plane do a touch and go at Sac International. You can have other apps open while listening and it’s all live. Definitely worth the price. 5 Stars!
  • Great app - a couple suggestions to improve

    By thereis
    Very useful to find out firsthand what’s happening in preparation for travel. And with more and more gate to gate satellite-based inflight Wi-Fi you can follow your flight throughout. That said - please consider the following: 1) Please list the frequencies a station is covering as per of the table cell when opening to select a feed (favorites, change channel, or directory). When listening to the feed there is a list. This doesn’t need the description- just a comma separated list of frequencies. 2) Would be great to have more than airport diagram linked, but also departure/arrival/approach plates. 3)This one is tougher and not sure it’s possible. But would love to be able to enter a flight number and find what channel the flight is on. 4) In the feed frequency page, it would be great to know if feeds are mixed, or if a stereo split then which feed is in which ear. This probably means a bigger change but it would be helpful. Thanks for a great app and thanks to everyone who provides feeds to the system.

    Just wasted a couple bucks on this app, it’s useless. While the Chanel loads, you aren’t able to use any of the tabs or scroll. The app freezes while the channel loads. Then on 100% of the channels I attempted to use, it gave me a “streaming error.”
  • Multiple air ports? Only 1 frequency at a time?

    By jmac147
    I remember 10 years ago when I first knew of this site that on my laptop I could get multiple channels for the entire airport. I wouldn’t have purchased it
  • Feed Shutdown?

    By JasonM1974
    Any reason why a feed will go down every two minutes or less when in high buffer? The example is KMSY dep/app/tower.
  • Boooooo

    By Dickles1
    This app worked once and now the local channels have been “temporarily unavailable” for over a month. I want my money back.
  • Great App but won’t shut off!

    By chezR
    I listen via Bluetooth in my vehicle. Turn off vehicle, turn off app...come back at night and the app is immediately on my radio via Bluetooth! Only way to stop this is to cycle power on the phone. So is this thing sucking data the whole day?
  • Love the app, why the criticism?

    By FloridaFatBoy
    It’s strange how many 1-star reviews criticize either the availability of a particular field or the quality of the reception. Do they realize the feeds are crowd sourced? One guy complained about paying $4 for the app. Well, this app is worth every penny of $4 for those interested in aviation like me. If you want a field added, then go buy a scanner and hook it up. If you’re dependent on this app for a critical operational function that is broken when the feed goes down, then you’re insane, buy a VHF radio. In the meantime, try to accomplish 5% of what this app does for $4 and I’ll applaud you cheapskates with both hands.
  • Ok

    By GSBS30
    When 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.
  • VERY Disappointed!!!

    By Peg Leg Jim
    I’m on the Board of Directors of 2 aviation associations. When I purchased this app, KBAF in Westfield, MA was monitored on a regular basis. We not only let it run in the hanger to familiarize the newbies to our ground and tower squawk/lingo, but to be informed of incoming aircraft to our events. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!!! SADLY..... 2 weeks after I purchased this app and talked it up within our organizations, it went radio silent at our Airfield. It was, and still is, a kick in the gut of our curriculum. I wish you all better luck at your own airfield than we’ve had with ours.
  • Frequency Change

    By Griffin194
    Just a heads up that LAX South final approach freq has changed from 124.9 to 132.37, so on the LAX North/South final approach channel, all you hear is the North side now.
  • Pretty good

    By YsniperY
    I use this app all the time. As a pilot I enjoy listening to ATC and pilots and follow them on a “radar app” as well. The app works well but I wish there was a way to input a frequency vs choosing from a list. Some of the sectors for Seattle Center aren’t available to listen to. Update?? Otherwise I think the app is the best of its kind.
  • Something changed :(

    By Jonnyboy4222
    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.
  • No access to archives

    By flunkat
    I bought this app assuming all functionality available on the website would be available. I’m disappointed that access to the archives is not available.
  • Great app!

    By Vintagebeef21
    Use it all the time when on long trips. Won’t load for some reason:(
  • Great app

    By Timayy
    Love the access via nearby and other airports. I use it to help my ATC communication improve. One item of feedback. When I am on an airline flight and my flight is being handed off to another frequency it would be great to be able to search on frequency like you can on the web site.
  • More locations

    By N13HW
    I wish they would put Metter or riedsville airport in Georgia in the search engine so I could listen to my friends and dad.
  • Please add Stillwater OK

    By Mskaptason
    We sure wish you could add KSWO to your list. There are allot of parents that would love to hear their student pilots at OSU!!!
  • Amazing just a request

    By Yugmi
    Love your app it works amazingly I just wanted to suggest adding Lihue airport. I travel through this airport a lot and would love to have it included. Thanks!
  • No CVG? No Cincinnati airports?

    By Ronin999999
    Downloaded it to listen to cvg Cincinnati northern Kentucky and its not there
  • Too pricey for not having Archives!

    By JPizzel DoJJ
    Great app, very simple and intuitive, especially with timer. Would love to get an archives, especially when you’ve been charged for this app. Thanx
  • Thank You LIVE ATC

    By whateverdudes
    Best app on my phone. Thanks Live ATC
  • I had a long review that wouldn’t post

    By Wiskey November
    Just know that I’m a brand new ATC operator and my boss uses it to listen in on the ATC facility when she’s not in. This app is pretty cool, feed is pretty spot on to what we hear in our headsets from the pilots, OI is easy to use. 8.5/10 would recommend
  • Lose frequency too often

    By Annie55!!
    I'd recommend fixing frequency loss. I wouldn't mind so much if it was a free app....but when I pay for it, it shouldn't drop like this. When it's up, it's great to listen to, especially when watching the planes on Flight Aware (free app) at the same time!! Try it!
  • ATIS and airport diagrams too

    By Dfrizzledizzle
    Student pilot here, exactly what you need to listen in on the radio, get and practice taking down ATIS info and even airport diagrams. Perfect.
  • B better

    By robfrazzini
    The software seems to work but you can’t select a discrete frequency which means several frequencies are taking over each other. The frequencies are listed separately but they are for information only. Who knows, maybe there is some law restricting this feature but it would be very nice to have.
  • Not working for the past three weeks

    By cbennet1
    I love this app and use it all the time. For the past three weeks every time I press play it air traffic control and then goes back to the play button. I have a race it off my phone and download again several times to no avail. Please fix!
  • Fix skbo frequencies

    By Santi182
  • Can no longer listen to my home airport KGSO

    By Jacksquatch04
    What the heck?! Why?! Just why was it removed? I enjoyed listing to atc and the planes flying in and out of the airport but I can no longer do that! That’s not fair! There is literally no reason why it should have been removed.
  • Streaming

    By rdcence
    Quick Shut out to the programmers. Thanks for working on the streaming. That has always been something that has plagued me.
  • Removed my airport KCOS

    By Cos Barry
    This app was was great until they removed my local airport, without warning, without any refunds, without explanation. Gone, just gone. Not hint if it can or will be re-added.
  • Waste

    By Cgjdkihbekksllannww272727
    This was a complete waste of money and time.
  • Not working

    By Dinocoder23
    I've tried over 20 frequencies at the 3 New York airports, nothing but occasional static. Freshly updated to latest version.
  • Well

    By rfes
    This app didn’t have kcvg a tad bummed but great app!
  • Old version better

    By Littledix
    Great app but latest update has been a huge downgrade in reliability as sound.
  • Not worth the cost.

    By Pitter243
    Absolutely horrible app. Half the stations are not broadcasting on the correct frequency, and it does not hold a signal for clear transmission even under wifi conditions. Save your 4 dollars and just listen to it free online. Quality might be better.
  • Still won’t remain connected

    By MikeS11234234
    New version has new look. It trashes any saved favorites saying they are incompatible. How lazy. It seems to connect to a stream quicker, but it still won’t stay connected reliably.
  • Weak consistency

    By djinatnix
    All stations regardless of location/network/signal strength stream for a few seconds, then drop and reconnect constantly. Hardly worth the money. I keep trying, and it keeps failing. Zero stars.
  • Excellent for student pilots or pilots working on Instrument

    By Sooner aviator
    Love the new update! I’m an active pilot working on my IFR rating, live ATC is a great way to listen to live ATC in a great variety of locations, it’s an excellent learning tool. Highly recommend!
  • Would be my dream app...

    By VeghS
    ... if you could somehow tag an airplane and automatically follow them through the various towers and channels as they are being handed over! =:-O But I love the app already!
  • Gorgeous App Update

    By CntryClub007
    Beautiful App Update - great job for iPhone X.
  • Future updates

    By Lerimer
    Hopefully we will get CarPlay support.
  • I wish

    By Dyl236464521173
    Cleveland could be back
  • Very good.

    By AIDV
    Thank you for the 2.0 update! You had abandoned us!
  • Great much-needed update!

    By mmontoya1996
    I thought this app was abondand two years ago but after the version 2.0 update, this brings a great new layout, more iOS-like look and feel, improved navigation, & optimization for iPhone X. Despite a small bug or two, this app is so much better than before.
  • iPhone X Support

    By Lakesbutta
    Please make the app fit the screen size of the iPhone X. I absolutely love your app and use it daily.
