The top 5 flight tracking apps in the iOS App Store

Nearly all our gamers use a flight tracking app as a companion to Skyjacker, our location-based AR airplane game. Being able to see airplanes about to depart your local airport and being able to see incoming airplanes outside the game's radar range before they become visible in your AR Binoculars can give you the edge over rival skyjackers! 

We pulled together a list of our top 5 flight tracking apps, available right now in the iOS store. Pick a perfect companion for your Skyjacker game.
