Airplanes, airplnes airplane...(",) I've been a lover of aircraft for as long as I can remember and can differentiate one for an other at a quick glance. Now my little boy has started to take an interest this is just the kind of app' I've been looking for. I now don't have to carry around a bulky copy of Jane's aircraft recognition or one of the many other books I own. Everything I need is right here on my phone for quick reference and If like me you know what you're looking for it's no problem navigating. As far as I'm concerned it's 5 stars, though not essential, I would love to have a favourites included. Thanks, (from both a Big, and little boy)
Nice. Superbly Arranged. Must have toiled A lot. I work civil Aviation Pakistan as an air Traffic control Assistant. It is a Nice helper.
Lots of info, but hard to navigate Useful app with a huge database, but it contains some inaccuracies. It would become even more useful if there were more options to sort and group by (e.g. By manufacturer, by years of operation or first flight). Favorites would alsobe useful.
Pictures won't open on kitkat 4.4.4! WHY Got Xperia z, since I tried recently to reinstall all my apps again, this app was excellent before, but seems developer has given up on any updates since 2012! It is not compatible with kitkat 4.4.4, all u get is bl and white android pic,followed by (no image available) so might as well delete 4 good! Whats the point?
A few tweaks needed It's very good but it needs some tweaking, for instance the search function is pretty much useless unless you no the exact registered ident of the plane, you can't just search for bristol or boeing, you need the full name. Also if you view a plane, when you go back to the plane list it throws you back up to the top of the list, so you have to scroll back down to where you were. Frustrating. Fix that and you've got a 5 star app.
Extremely buggy! This app has good content inside of it but has a vast amount of bugs. I don't usually rate apps but I really do want the developers to fix these problems. On my nexus 4 running 4.3 it often force crashes after swiping too much within the gallery. Also images within the gallery/3D images and images on the actual plane documentation does not show up. Another bug is that the search feature does not work at all. Even for planes I can see in the list view. Take A10 as an example that I know exist in the database do not come up on search. In fact nothing comes up on search. Please fix these issues! This app has great potential if you guys just patch it! :)
Nice try Atrocious search function. The list of aircraft is huge and not navigable. Units are mixed metric/English difficult to understand due to inconsistency. Nice concept, if only it were useful.
Poor It atleast worked with my HTC. Now I have an "HTC One" and there's no gallery. You should also be able to search by category: military, helicopter, amphibian, etc. because you don't always know the manufacturer.
Poor design Search feature does not work, no image displayed on aircraft page...cool idea but this app is poorly developed. Should also include a way to report errors.
Worked well Until upgraded to KitKat, please add KitKat support as now no pictures or 3D views show up. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Please fix or adivse.
Fix Love the app the only thing will be to be able to find the aircraft or helicopters easy.
Great info, no pics The information available is hood but every aircraft has a picture but when opened it says picture not available? Fix that and its 5 stars. Not much appeal without a picture fix
Needs developing Has good potential for further development. Search doesn't work & no images. But will give it time.
To all To those having problems seeing the images, there is a download for offline usage button next to the circled i. Click it and let it download. It will work afterwards.
Would be better if the pictures would open but they dont. Please fix this an I would give 5 stars
Lots of info, no pics... Very good for info, like Janes in a tablet, but every plane I click on says 'image not available'! Where's the pics? Not amused....
Needs work Search doesn't work, no B1-b Lancer, and very buggy navigation, and missing/wrong information.
Hank Aussie-in-NZ This a fantastic pictorial list of aircraft information. What's really lacking is a good search facility. I UNSUCCESSFULLY searched for known aircraft but when I scrolled through the list,they COULD be found. Therefore, I have awarded this Ap with a Two Star rating just now but when the search facility improves, I will revise this Star rating.
No pictures The app would be a lot better if I could see what I was looking at
Poor GUI. Few images available. Very little data and no history given. Not an encyclopedia in any way. Using Wikipedia instead.
No images All images aren't available... Fix please. Great app otherwise.
No pictures available? Of a C-172? Would you like me to loan you some?
A must for aircraft lovers, planespotters, and those looking to learn more about airplanes. This is a very nice application. It has a substantial database of most common aircraft with photos, 3d diagrams, and technical info. It's easy to scroll down to the list of the aircraft of your choice or search. It's full featured, free, and has no ads. Nice work.
Save function for aircraft list Needs a save function for aircraft list. Should come back to the list where you left when you go in the description of the aircraft.
Search broken When searching, the results page is always blank. Using Galaxy S3.
Some decent content but clunky navigation Just about useable once you have worked out the quirks in the search and navigation system, but Images are not available. Needs more work. Uninstalling
Good info. Could use some work. This app is awesome for info. Currently, it appears there is no picture support for Samsung Note 2. A feature to compare a few aircraft side by side would be awesome. The search is a bit limited. The price was right.
Cool This app is brilliant for those who love planes... I do thats why I downloaded this app.
Awesome!!!!!!! Found everything I want to know about aircrafts. I wish a tank verion was in too.
Luka memo Good app but it does not support pics and gallery doesn't work
Needs a lot of work Search function sucks. Should Be able to sort by aircraft type for easy looking up while still able to see the plane. Fighter, attack, gyrocopter, single engine gull wing, biplane, ect.
Why da hell isn't da image showing. There is no point to download dis app when it doesn't show any image. What a waste of time
Great app Would give 5 stars but images dont work
Sony z1c. No pics in app. Please fix
Image not available Can't get any images on nexus 4, all the info just no pics...says image unavailable... Bummer.
Save function Needs a save function so you can look at a group of aircraft instead of scrolling or worse, searching for it.
Awesome! Although not very accurate, but very close details of almost all aircrafts, strongly recommended app
No images Apart from bugging a lot, it does not show any pictures whatsoever. Anything im doing wrong in that matter?
Epic Pics dont work but still great
Bad No pics load..guess app isn't supported anymore..
Where are the images and pictures? Please correct this mistakes.
Search is not working propelry
Max Very good app please update it, add photos for some planes such as An225, A320 and other
Very good! I'm an ATC, so it will be helpfull for me sometimes, cause we don't have such databases on our working places. Thanks, and please, continue your work!
Doesn't show images. Appears to have been a brilliant app but no longer supported. Index shows thumbnails but not full screen pics. Android 5.1
App too old for os newer than 4years App does not work no images will display, search engine does not work last update nearly 4 years ago. I have uninstalled it don't waste your time.
Cant download picture Although there are enough space but the picture did not download only download the plane data only. I like this app,but please fix this problem
Have installed 4 times but there are no photos Even removed anti - virus in case it was blocking the photo files
No images, poor search Not displaying images when selecting aircraft, but I can see the thumbnails. Poor search, often fails to find anything. Would be great if these problems were resolved?
Can anyone give suggestions, why I'm not able to access images? it's showing imege not available
Garbage! Tried this 4 times now. No pics or anything GARBAGE, GOOGLE TAKE THIS OFFLINE!!PLEASE
Images don't work! App seems great but not a single image will load on galaxy nexus running ice cream sandwich. Very disappointed please fix this bug devs! Thanks
hoof really bad search engine (worst i've seen). cant find anything. and no pics showing. uninstalling.
Inaccurate I am a pilot and I have flown some of the aircraft in this encyclopedia. The vast majority of the data is incorrect for those so I must assume the rest puff the aircraft are wrong as well.
No Images, Not Addressed Has not displayed images for over a year and not addressed or in the description. Bad form!
No pictures This app would be great if there was real pictures and not just thumbnails... Cant have an aircraft encyclopedia with no pictures
Information Whoever made this app knows nothing about planes,cause there is little information on the list of aircrafts in this app
Not good It can't load any single image. It can't download any data for offline use.
