"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.

    I use it regularly on my Android phone to check flight status and monitor my account. Works great. Searching for flights and making a new reservation still needs a lot of work, so someone can use it to find alternate flights when a flight is delayed (United flight delayed??).
