How it works:
1. Download the app, no pre-approval or interview needed!
2. Complete passport profiles in the app. If using Mobile Passport plus, you may scan and store your passports before your trip.
3. UPON ARRIVAL turn on Wi-Fi or data. Make sure the Date & Time settings for your device are set for your current, local time zone. Submit passports and customs declaration forms in the app.
4. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will send you a digital receipt in the form of an encrypted QR code after they have reviewed your submission, which will expire after four (4) hours.
5. Bypass the regular lines and follow the signs for the Mobile Passport Control express lane.
6. Show your physical passports and QR code receipts, and briefly talk to a CBP officer.
***MOBILE PASSPORT IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR YOUR PASSPORT. YOU MUST CARRY YOUR PHYSICAL PASSPORT.***
Group submissions may be made on one mobile device for all family members of the same household traveling together (provided that each family member is a U.S. citizen with a valid U.S. passport or a Canadian citizen with both a valid Canadian passport and B1 or B2 visa status).
Do not use the Mobile Passport app and Global Entry interchangeably for the same inspection process. If you have both programs, wait until your arrival in inspection area so you can determine the shortest lane (which may vary depending on the port and time of day) and decide whether to make a submission on the Mobile Passport app at that time.

They don't say you have to pay
Very sneaky. They don't mention in their ads, website, or mobile app that you have to pay to use the app up until you've submitted all your info. Reported it to Apple.
I input the information only to arrive at Port Everglades to be told they aren’t using this any more.
Seemed like a good app but poor implementation!
I was travelling on a United flight from Guatemala City to Montreal with a connection through Houston. I was travelling with three others:
a Canadian Permanent Resident travelling on a German ppt (not eligible to use the app) and two other Canadians who chose not to use the app.
I had downloaded the app thinking it would have been faster to process through Houston as we were in-transit and to see how it worked. The whole idea of a “pre-clearance” seemed to mean it should have been a faster than normal process.
Not only was it not faster, the other travellers I was travelling with including the Canadian PR travelling on the German ppt were processed far faster that I was.
From my perspective, the issue was that only one agent was assigned to the Mobile Passport line. While this may not have been the primary issue, it became a significant problem when the agent closed the line and we were now being processed with the crew line. Since crew are a priority (and I understand why), our line had no movement. None!! The agent processed 15-20 crew before calling a single traveller in the MP line.
In the end, I gave up. I was afraid I was going to miss my connecting flight. I walked back to the regular flow and saw an agent.
While I was excited to try the service I can only comment that the implementation at the airport was very poor. Surely, assigning one agent and then shutting that down was not going to result in satisfactory service.
