Nice, thanks - I might ask them for a key, it would be fun to play around with I think. Are these real flights or sim flights? (Sorry for the noob question, I don’t know anything about Flight Simulators)
Here’s a quick primer on APIs:
I think if I was building this app I would have a clock that fired every 10 or 20 seconds and requested new data from the server.
Then you’d need to do a little bit more to make sure your app complied with the rules, but still very manageable in Thunkable
An API Key is required. Please contact us with your project idea to get an API key.
All apps are required to have a timeout feature if the app isn’t being used. We don’t want users to have the app running for hours if no-one is looking.
So if no action is taken for 15 minutes, have your apps stop downloading new content unless the user presses a button. (FlightRadar24 does this on their site).
No permanent storing of data retrieved via the API is permitted. (You cannot keep the data in your own database) If you need additional functionality from the API, please contact us).
