Replacement for FlightTrack?

Thanks re VariFlight. Am trying it now. Wish it had TripIt integration.

So far I find Flight Update Pro to be the best and AITA to be the most useless.

But still bemoan the loss of FTPro. I still use it to keep track of flights (i.e., to answer friend's questions of "when are you leaving for ----"). But its utility decreases to zero as you get close to flight time. The applicable flight "greys out" about a day before takeoff and becomes useless.

One thing my family has asked for that these apps haven't delivered on is the option to change settings to your current time zone. So if I'm flying DEN-ORD, the app would show the flight times all in eastern and not Mountain to Central.

Also - if you click on similar apps (or look from the same developer, "FEEYO.COM E-COMMERCE CORP" - there is a gold "pro" version, but in chinese. From the screenshots it looks like there is some additional content. I don't currently have 0.99, but wondering if someone could take one for the team and buy it and report back?
What I ask to you is to share your reviews and requests with developers of Variglight by mail or with a review in the store. It helps a lot of work! Variflight is on the right way

Does the The Flight Tracker by Impala Studos still support TripIt? For some reason it doesn't pick up TripIt even though the "button" is switched on..

I do not know if flight tracker is a good app. Customer support is really bad. Send suggestions and they will not answer you

It’s been 8 months. Has anyone found a replacement for flight track pro? I still haven’t. I’ve been juggling between three other apps just to track my flights and nothing compares. FlightView, FlightStats, FlightAware

I’m no longer able to keep a nice history of my flights like flight track pro.

To me FlightUpdate is still the closest I could get to FlightTrackPro, having tried 4 or 5 others.

For history, "Flight Tracker" is probably the closest, but I find it lacks a bit more of the in-depth info.

For the rest, although not the prettiest, "Flight Tracker" has all the info.

And I just now realized that both of these have the exact same name displayed under the icon.

For aesthetics - "The Flight Tracker" by Impala Studios

For detailed info - "mi Flight Tracker" by Appeclectic Ltd. - they also have a flightboard app that is pretty good and similar to what FTP had.

I still miss Flight Track Pro though, it was just so good.

While making a phone call on my iPhone, I happened to notice a pop-up message on my iPad from App in the Air claiming 50% off for Black Friday. However, I have not been able to confirm this by trying to purchase a subscription in the app on my iPhone or iPad. Is there another way to find out whether they meant 50% off one year or lifetime?

Flight Tracker by impala studios is the one I've settled on as a Flight Track Pro replacement - but every time I open it up I feel sad that it isn't FTP and wish they'd never had to shut it down.

Hi everyone, after searching for a flight tracking app to use after FlightTrack we decided to take it into our own hands and build the most powerful and beautiful app ourselves.

To make sure we don’t only build what we want but also what you want it would help us a lot if you could take our 3 min survey on flightyapp.com. In doing so, you can gain beta access to our exciting new app and a chance to win free Flighty for life.

I didn't see it mentioned on your survey, but I'm much more inclined to pay a one time payment ($10-20) rather then a subscription model that everyone seems to be using now.
