  • Great app. Frequently won’t quit.

    By trikayaker
    This is a great app that I love listening to or even previewing pattern traffic before a flight. I frequently have a problem with the app continuing to run and broadcast through the phone even though the app has been closed (and yes....closed....not just in background).
  • Ok ... but latest version not working now for local exec airport

    By LHR1950
    Before could easily access and listen to KHND, Henderson, NV Executive Airport ground and tower ... it connects now but no sound on iPhone or iPad, or via the website....
  • Fantastic App!

    By Mike D'Angelo
    The premium version of this app is a fantastic deal. This app does everything a several hundred dollar aviation scanner can do, but does it without the effort. No programming frequencies, no making lists of channels from your local airport. It is all done for you and what makes this better than a scanner? Scanners only bring in local frequencies. I am in Miami Florida and if I tire of listening to my local airports, I can hear whats going on at JKF or DFW. Try doing that with a scanner!
  • Great app with caveats

    By Lil' Ole Wil
    First, I actually came in to complain about Version 2.3.0. Then I read some reviews and .. ya .. I have an ACTUAL issue with the app, NOT things this app has zero to do with - like static, feeds going down and airport feeds being ended. Those are issues with the feeds. THIS APP is basically an aggregator, folks. The app DOES NOT have anything to do with those complaints. That is a feed issue and is in the purview of VOLUNTEERS (READ: not paid, just doing something nice for total strangers) who provide the feeds this app makes available to you. Again, these volunteers do this for free and under ZERO obligation to anyone. Google LiveATC and learn more about this and set your expectations accordingly, please. Okay, on to a REAL issue I have with 2.3.0. I am mobility impaired and the loss of volume in the app and even functionality on the Lock Screen where I, in the bright sunny days of .. oh .. two days ago, could turn down or off a feed, is a big problem. That loss for me .. one that the actual app developers were responsible for .. and is complaint worthy. Doesn’t mean I don’t still love the app, but does mean its user friendliness had been degraded in an area that I find crucial. As I am not an audiophile, and hope other veteran LiveATC lovers are with me on this, and so the L/R channel “equalizer” deal for me is not as important as being able to control the app while it is on the Lock Screen (feel free to read that as on a solid surface that is not shaking, unlike me.) I, here in shake central, miss the ability to reduce or increase the volume in the app itself, as well. Picking up my phone, more often that not, lends itself to me losing grip on it and off it goes. So, still love the app. These days I would be lost without it, because I can at least travel with my ears. But if the devs might want consider a “lite” version with the old functionality, this reviewer would be eternally grateful and my phone would probably last longer.
  • Awesome for Student Pilots

    By Sir Nomis
    This is awesome!!!! Totally worth it! Developer, Any chance to get the frequency that the airport is broadcasting on in addition to their name?? Thank you for all of the work!!
  • Good app, could be better

    By BroBear1165
    It 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
  • Love it, but it is so quiet

    By tacktim
    I love This app however it is so quiet I have to turn my volume in my car almost all the way up to hear it. Then when I get a text it’s like a sonic boom went off in my car.
  • I love live ATC!

    By DrBobby444
    I live 4.4 miles from JFK. Instead of struggling with my weak radio, I simply go on line to your station. It’s a pleasure! Since I’m a novice, a few things would help me specifically for JFK.120.85 departure is not included in your menu. I also find that when I am making a selection from any airport menu, the selection does not remain highlighted so when I return to the menu, I frequently forget which item I pressed. I hope that’s an easy fix for you! Thank you from a loyal fan!
  • Does a good job

    By wyldbrnch
    Not sure what the negative reviews are about. I use the app and haven’t had any problems. It does what it says it will do. I like it so far.
  • Needs update. Many frequencies down.
