Worst travel App I've tried
Very annoyed at this app. Took several attempts to create an account. Lots of stupid issues like not able to verify my address (took 3 attempts to figure out how to change my address to one this app could verify, as if I don't know my own address), telling me my secret question answers didn't match when they did. Once signed in checking in required a scan of my passport which took 4 attempts. I only kept trying as I wanted to check in through the app and use electronic boarding passes which it did not create. All it did is offer to email them to me so I could print it out! How unhelpful that was! There is no option to sign in with Facebook which is a bit annoying as it would have saved time. Whomever wrote this app should be fired or at the very least the person responsible for improvements and modernization of this stupid app should be forced to use the Delta app and see how a good app is written!
How can an update that causes an app to shut down be an improvement? I can't do a multiple leg trip on the app, it shuts down in the middle. Also why are you giving one way pricing? If I was to book just a one way ticket through united it is more than buying it with a return ticket. What's the sense? If I was able to say united had the best price outbound & someone else has a better price inbound & purchase one way at the price then fine. Now it's useless, misleading & more cumbersome. Finally you should be allowed to save your preferences. I want only non-stop flights to show in order of departure. I have to go in each time I look for a flight & put in those settings. If that's not bad enough I need to do it AGAIN on the return trip. Whoever United hired for these "improvements" should be worried about continued employment. Wish I never updated the app. Makes me want to use other airlines easier to navigate
I gave the app one star, not because I have had difficulty with the app, but because it was required to download the app in order to get my boarding passes into Passbook. I know that Apple makes it possible for places to send boarding passes as Passbook-enabled attachments. I do not want an extra app on my phone taking up my limited storage, even just for the length of my trip. Nor should I have to download an app, download my boarding passes to the app, then transfer the boarding passes to Passbook (which is the most logical place, especially when different legs of a flight use different carries, as sometimes happens when booking with other websites). It’s unfortunate that they decided to make things more difficult and complicated for their customers.
