What's New in Version 2.1.23
Spotty Wifi, buggy app for movies
It took me about 5 hours to watch the first 45 minutes of a film due to how many times the app would disconnect from wifi. On a 5.5+ hour flight, was unable to finish more than half of a single movie. Kept getting a "300 error." To try again, I would have to remove the movie from my "saved" list, shut down app, restart it, reconnect to wifi, re-open "in flight entertainment," and scrub to the last point of the movie (if it would load). Only able to watch one to 6 minutes at a time this way. Many people around me couldn't even connect to the wifi, and on the first leg of the flight, I couldn't connect at all. There were also unintuitive screen orientation issues that would require a restart of the app (i.e. movie plays in vertical mode and only half of it shows on screen, rest is cut off into space; won't auto-rotate to horizontal). Using iPhone 7+
App does everything need for travel
I've been using this app for years and it's always been spot on from booking to arriving gate info with a most major airport maps supported. Since this app I no longer need to use a laptop to search travel. Compared to other airline apps, this is by far the best. So far I haven't had any issues with Media support, that can sometimes be a result of the airframe Internet and not the app.
A poor example of an airline app
Why one star? The app has bad interface design (prominently displaying elements that most users seldom want to use and making important elements hard to find). The app's notifications never seem to work properly no matter how many times I reset them - in particular the app refuses to show boarding passes on the lock screen. The app requires you to log into your United account every time you use it....
Such a contrast to other airlines' functional and easy-to-use apps.
