The United Mobile App, which is actually one of my favorite airline apps, is definitely worth a download this week if you don’t already have it. United announced last week that they are donating five miles to Feeding America for every individual download, up to 1 million miles. Feeding America is a charity that works to feed America’s hungry via a network of nationwide food banks.
A few of the reasons why I really like UA’s mobile app:
- View upgrade and standby lists (when they are working)
- Check flight status, including “where is this aircraft coming from” and inflight amenity features
- Book MileagePlus award tickets directly from the app
- Mobile boarding passes that can be added to Passbook
