Flight tracking app FlightRadar24 coming to Windows Phone 8 soon


Popular iOS and Android app FlightRadar24 with more than 2 million downloads is coming to Windows Phone 8 soon.

The app turn your phone  into an air traffic radar and lets you see airplane traffic around the world in real-time.

Apparently benefiting from the easy porting from Windows 8, where they have also released an app recently, the flight tracking app offers:

  • Aircraft moving in real-time
  • Augmented reality view – identify the planes flying overhead by simply pointing your phone’s camera to the sky
  • Easy to search for a specific flight
  • Filter by airline, altitude, speed and more
  • Push notification alerts
  • Flight trails and callsigns directly on map
  • Possibility to show different aircraft icons, for different aircraft types

The app should be hitting the Windows Phone 8 store in 4-5 weeks.
