A tired useless app
This was a good app. Useful to independently research seat configurations while booking a flight. Or maybe even before engaging in the booking process. But now it's nearly useless. The app hasn't been updated since 2013. The seating configurations are woefully out of date, in particular for United's aircraft fleet. It may be correct for others but I know in this case, it's not. At least the app is free, so the decision to delete was simple. If you're looking for an accurate up-to-date "seat guru", be sure to check out the ground truth from your favorite airline and compare with their Internet browser site. If they don't match, don't bother with the mobile app.
While aesthetically pleasing, the functionality of the app has diminished as of late. See other reviews regarding "locking one in" to a specific airline. Unless you fully exit the app, one cannot navigate from airline to airline. You can go back to see the fleet lists of an airline initially chosen (by clicking on the airline name--"back" and "Home" do not function) but unless the app is closed and restarted, you're stuck with the airline you chose. Granted this is just an app, and a free app I know. Over the last few years the website itself is more improved, it is disappointing that an app for this purpose is not as user friendly as it appears.
I am another longtime fan of seatguru, but as others have already made mention of, there is now a serious glitch in the app. Once you navigate to a seat plan or to browse flight info, you are unable to return to the previous screen or home page. The only way to I was able to rectify the situation was to delete the app and then download it again – I’ve already done this several times and it is beyond frustrating.
Please address and fix this major issue– this was a great app and I’d love to continue using it.
