"Officially United"

Reviewed by / Sep 04, 2012

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.

    New version crashes.....a lot. Recently all my reservations went missing from the app. It is crashing less now but not so useful. There is a very easy to reproduce crash by checking in with your fqtv when you have two reservations departing within 24 h

    New version crashes when trying to change seats. While prettier, new version is slower and crashes. Old version was reliable

    Used to be easy to navigate around and find the information I wanted. Once checked in you cannot see the upgrade list anymore. Also if you change your flight it still shows the old flight....

    Filling in request for flight reservation does nothing. You hit submit and no response. Also turn off the screen rotation. When you flip the phone over to be scanned at the airport, the Barcode disappears...

    The most recent app update fixes a lot of the old frustrations (hard to find reservations. slow to retrieve boarding pass). They've integrated the "check flight status" with the boarding pass so you don't have to fumble with it so much. Much improved.

    This was the greatest app since sliced bread, and then they had to made it "more user friendly"? The new design is terrible. It takes forever to find your boarding pass. Please revert to the previous release.

    It just SUCKS!!! Slow and not user friendly. Hard to navigate and it won't delete old information. Why change to something that doesn't work for the users...The customers. Someone decided to make it prettier but useless. I can see there are a lot of un
