What's New in Version 2.1.11
- Bug Fix-a-Thon
Folks who hate UA for reasons other than this App, please stay away
Let me start by saying that I am not affiliated with United in any other way than that I have flown with them for many years while either being a Gold, Platinum or 1K member.
The folks who unload their often times unrelated and hateful comments here seem to direct their anger at anything and everything this airline has done to them and this seems to include this app.
Is UA in general always bad? No! Are they near perfect? No! Is it possible that it is something in the middle where some things work great and other do not at all? Yes!
I've witnessed many up and down experiences myself over all these years and can tell you first hand that many improvements have enhanced my travel experience. And this does include the United app. I'll admit that I am probably not using ALL of the things that it can or is supposed to do, but it does work very well for the basics. That does include keeping track of all of your reservations, checking-in and rebooking for flights, making seat selections, streaming movies on the plane, etc.
I will definitely continue using and look forward to any future enhancements by patiently waiting until they are becoming introduced and then judge for myself.
Giving the app 5 Stars just to balance out the haters with their unqualified comments. :-))
Useful app when traveling
This app was super useful for me when I was traveling! I like that it conveniently stores my boarding pass and the app allows you to easily keep track of my flight itinerary. I used it to watch the in-flight TV from my phone and had no issues.
I'm surprised by all the negative reviews. I think a lot of the reviews are criticisms of United itself rather than the app. My major suggestion is that United lets passengers know in advance to download the app if they want in-flight entertainment. Otherwise, you can't download the app once you're in air.
Almost perfect - iPad rotation
This new version of the app is quite good. It has a very nice design and great performance. I give it only 4 stars for 2 reasons: 1 - it should support iPad landscape. 2 - I'd like to see a better "resume play" with the on demand movies. I often only get to watch part of a movie on the flight and I want to easily pick up where I left off on the return.
