In this release, we enhanced a couple of small features and fixed a few bugs. 3D view was freezing in certain instances, we've fixed that.
We added Force Touch functionality on the app icon to see shortcuts. You can now also choose to show or hide your location on the map.
Please note that it is possible to filter for aircraft using the ICAO code. For example, enter B748 to see Boeing 747-8 aircraft.

What's New in Version 6.6.0
For this release, we focused on filters. We expanded the filter functionality and made it easier to use. It is now possible to filter by aircraft family as well as highlight filtered aircraft over the top of all visible aircraft.
It is also now possible to change map settings directly from the main map.
We also improved map responsiveness and added shadows to visually indicate the altitude of aircraft.
The app now takes up 30% less space on your device and we fixed a number of small bugs.

HOW IT WORKS
Most aircraft today are equipped with so called ADS-B transponders that transmit positional data. Flight radar 24 has a rapidly growing network of several thousand ground stations around the world to receive this data that then shows up as aircraft moving on a map in the app. In an expanding number of regions Flightradar24, with the help of multilateration, is able to calculate the positions of aircraft that don’t have ADS-B transponders.
Traditional radar data is also used in the app thanks to a direct feed from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This data provides near real-time coverage of all US and Canadian airspace.
***IMPORTANT NOTICE - COVERAGE***
Flightradar24 provides unrivaled positional aircraft data coverage around the world but there are areas where we don’t have coverage. If you are only interested in tracking air traffic in a specific region, we suggest that you check our website BEFORE purchasing the app.
Overview of coverage as of April 2015:
* Europe: close to 100%
* North America: 100% of US and Canada via slightly delayed radar data. Real-time coverage for most of US, Canada and Mexico for ADS-B equipped aircraft
* South America: Substantial coverage in most countries including Brazil, Argentina and Chile
* Asia: Substantial coverage in most major Asian countries including Japan, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, UAE, Malaysia, Taiwan and many other countries. Rapidly expanding coverage in China

Coverage is subject to change at any time.
