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.

Nikolay Trifonov

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 Google User

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.

Paul Trimiar

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.

Cédric Mallet

Poor design Search feature does not work, no image displayed on aircraft idea but this app is poorly developed. Should also include a way to report errors.

Heather Baron

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.

Jhon hoyos

Fix Love the app the only thing will be to be able to find the aircraft or helicopters easy.

Stuart Gilmour

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

Paul Waller

Needs developing Has good potential for further development. Search doesn't work & no images. But will give it time.

A Google User

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.

David Douvillle

Would be better if the pictures would open but they dont. Please fix this an I would give 5 stars

Richard Sinnott

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....

Bryce Morey

Needs work Search doesn't work, no B1-b Lancer, and very buggy navigation, and missing/wrong information.

A Google User

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.

Arron Colegrove

No pictures The app would be a lot better if I could see what I was looking at

Eric Reed

Poor GUI. Few images available. Very little data and no history given. Not an encyclopedia in any way. Using Wikipedia instead.

Alec Coulibaly

No images All images aren't available... Fix please. Great app otherwise.

Jason McCutcheon

No pictures available? Of a C-172? Would you like me to loan you some?

A Google User

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.

Akshat Mehrotra

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.

A Google User

Search broken When searching, the results page is always blank. Using Galaxy S3.

Jerry Tracey

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

Jared Larson

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.

A Google User

Cool This app is brilliant for those who love planes... I do thats why I downloaded this app.

jonathan ting

Awesome!!!!!!! Found everything I want to know about aircrafts. I wish a tank verion was in too.

Luka Memo

Luka memo Good app but it does not support pics and gallery doesn't work

A Google User

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.

Sat Narayan

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

Phillip Botha

Great app Would give 5 stars but images dont work

Brian Du Plessis

Sony z1c. No pics in app. Please fix

Lee Parker

Image not available Can't get any images on nexus 4, all the info just no pics...says image unavailable... Bummer.

Donald Johnson

Save function Needs a save function so you can look at a group of aircraft instead of scrolling or worse, searching for it.

Kashan Jafri

Awesome! Although not very accurate, but very close details of almost all aircrafts, strongly recommended app

Miguel Alonso

No images Apart from bugging a lot, it does not show any pictures whatsoever. Anything im doing wrong in that matter?

Joe T

Epic Pics dont work but still great

Steven Semple

Roman Yushin

Anton Nazarov

Пользователь Google

Max Very good app please update it, add photos for some planes such as An225, A320 and other

Пользователь Google

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!

Ali Foote

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

Tom Grieveson

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.

Wee Siang

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

Ira Catlin

Have installed 4 times but there are no photos Even removed anti - virus in case it was blocking the photo files

Graeme Peterson

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?

Jaydeep Khopkar

Can anyone give suggestions, why I'm not able to access images? it's showing imege not available

Richard Moretz

Garbage! Tried this 4 times now. No pics or anything GARBAGE, GOOGLE TAKE THIS OFFLINE!!PLEASE

Jevan Burchell

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

Trnod P

hoof really bad search engine (worst i've seen). cant find anything. and no pics showing. uninstalling.

James Fulkerson

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.

Mister Kaye

No Images, Not Addressed Has not displayed images for over a year and not addressed or in the description. Bad form!

Philip Boisvenue

No pictures This app would be great if there was real pictures and not just thumbnails... Cant have an aircraft encyclopedia with no pictures

Osatohanvwen Krobo-Edusei

Information Whoever made this app knows nothing about planes,cause there is little information on the list of aircrafts in this app

Alfred K Bett

Not good It can't load any single image. It can't download any data for offline use.
