What is RadarSpotter?

RadarSpotter is an android app which helps finding aircraft information rapidly. Our unique concept enables you to grab the info in nearly no time. Start the app and point your phone to the aircraft in the sky like taking a photograph with your camera. Then touch your device screen. That is all you have to do! It has never been easier to see what's going on overhead.


How to use?

It's as simple as it can be!

  • Open the camera tab by tapping on it.
  • Point you phone to the sky like taking a photo of the plane
  • Move until the crosshair points to the target and a little box locks to it.
  • Tap anywhere on the screen and the app will switch to the details tab. Thats it!

How does it work?

Seems like magic, but of course it's not! This app is built from three main components: First, a live data feed which tells what planes are around. Second, the orientation of your device in 3D space. Third, and this is the most difficult: Some complex mathematics which take into account your position, each plane's position, the direction you are pointing the phone and the camera view. Putting all these facts together enables you to see an augmentation in your display.
