Spidertracks Releases App for Android Devices

Spidertracks Releases App for Android Devices

New Zealand-based real-time aircraft tracking company spidertracks has just released their ‘spidertracks’ app for Android, enabling even more people to access flight information from almost anywhere.

Spidertracks’ Chief Customer Officer Luke McCarthy says the Android app was a natural progression for spidertracks as more customers begin to use the system outside of the traditional office setting.

“Being able to keep an eye on their operation from almost anywhere has meant these people who are out of the office, on the road, or even flying themselves can now view, manage, and communicate with their fleet.

“We released an iPhone app almost three years ago now, which streamlined operations for a lot of our customers, but Android users have previously had to navigate the desktop website on their phones.

“Our whole product philosophy is simplicity, and the user experience wasn't as simple as it should have been,” says Mr McCarthy.

Dave Blackwell, spidertracks’ Chief Operations Officer, says the drive behind developing the new application was to make it simple for more customers to know what is going on within their operation.

“Knowledge is power, and simplicity is key with any aircraft operation. The Android release will now give the vast majority of our customers quick access to their aircraft data in real-time from almost anywhere, with what is a very user-friendly application.

“Customers who use the new app will see the same straightforward user interface as the web platform, with aircraft data including local time, UTC time, latitude and longitude, altitude, airspeed, and heading.”

Mr Blackwell adds that this application is just the beginning of a number of products that spidertracks is looking to bring out for their customers in 2015.

The new app is available from March 31st 2015 from the Google Store at
