To see a big company like virgin bring out such an incomplete product
It shows how hard iOS development is and how expensive it is to make an app.
But this really does reflect on the company as whole, so I really do wonder if it was worth it to go through shortcuts to just get an app out there.
First of all, there should be a login with your elevate account, and is it Atlantic only? Only flights on the east coast? Are there different majority owners for each department? Or was this an experiment?
The functionality is ok, but A lot of the views are really HTML5 mobile websites then actual view controllers made by interface builders
Budget control? Personal project? Regardless by putting the Virgin name on there and it's very confusing and misleading. Again one can guess that maybe virgin can regulate virgin Atlantic for whatever reason.
All they really had to do is copy how all the other airlines do their app, and just make it more user friendly, have more detailed features, cool ways to dismiss views and make it natively.
Which isn't too hard to do if you have a good iOS team. Which I'm sure virgin can afford.
Definitely out-sourced and whoever the project manager was went through hell. I can assume it's Indian iOS programmers.
TF is this all about
I have refused to write reviews for apps until now. I am a gold member of Virgin Atlantic for 10 years and an avid iOS user and user of apps. Never have I used such a poor app in my life. I hate British Airways, but would almost consider moving to them as the app is a pleasure to use and very aesthetically pleasing. If the Virgin app developers are reading this or better still, someone higher up in Virgin, this is terrible and needs sorting out in this day and age. Virgin are a great brand and service and the easiest addition to culture in current items is an app. Why is it so poor ? Please amend asap.
This app is so bad. It's forced me to write my first ever review, and I thought the last app was bad enough and patiently waited for the new one. Really?
Don't waste your time
I'm traveling later this week and decided to give the app a go...what a busy. I'd like the last 15 mins of my life back please! The app could neither find my frequent flyer number not locate my booking/itinerary. The app is good for absolutely nothing if unable to process the most basic of airline app functions. How this was even submitted to Apple in its current state, let alone approved by App Store gatekeepers, I have no idea. Someone dropped the ball on both sides. Don't make the same mistake as I did and lose 15 precious mins of your life (well, now 20 post review) fiddling with this virtual paperweight. Try again Virgin, massive FAIL
