Toggling between 2D and 3D seems to move the map to a different location, and trying to slide it back to the original location then squeezes the 3D to an incredibly shallow slant view.
UK Radar. Firstly, we use our radar data to show aircraft positions and tracks over the UK. Other apps use an aircraft position reporting technology called ADS-B which is an excellent technology that we are actively testing at the moment for potential use in air traffic management. However, the ADS-B data used in Flight Tracking apps isn’t always entirely accurate, nor does it offer total coverage. We thought it would be of interest to see a UK picture of aircraft positions created from the same data sources that feed the screens and technology our controllers use to keep aircraft safe.
We still use ADS-B in the app to chart aircraft flying over the UK – but it prioritises radar positions which form the vast majority of position reports. Outside of the UK, we use ADS-B and other aircraft position data sources from our partner FlightAware – the global flight data company – to plot aircraft positions.

Hope they port it to Android soon!
Why would they bother??

So other than an execise in producing another 'I' app and something to discuss sat in the caf or bar, what actual use is it?
