This is United Airlines' official app
Even the largest and most-known airlines have to make an effort to make things easier to users in the mobile Era. For this reason, United has launched its official Android app from where users can book flight tickets, view flight status, check-in, access to airport maps and many other features.
Although layout ins't stunning (taking into account the resources of the company), there's lot of useful tools all of them travel-related. For instance, you search for United flight tickets setting up departing and arrival airports, date, cabin (economy/business/first) and apply filters. One of the most important features is mobile check-in and Mobile Boarding Pass storage and, obviously, flight reminders and Flight Status Push Notification.
From "More" you can see a wide range of features that make the difference like: timetable, games , currency converter, checked baggage charges.... In summary, if you're a dedicated United Airlines user, you should miss these app (United Club locations feature included). Despite of layout, the app works pretty good.

So far far so good :)
Deleting flights under flight status does not work... Just have a bunch of old unneeded flights under this tab.
My itinerary was changed due to plane maintenance and the app did not update my boarding pass and almost caused me to miss my rescheduled flight. Works okay but was not reliable.
I had such difficulty with United's website that I decided to try the app but it's worse. No option to change my flight.
This shiny app is only as good as the services United is able to provide, and that's limited. Flight notification updates are so retarded, you might as well call the airline for a flight status.
