United optimized its app for iOS 7, inserting some nice new features without adding anything that would make for a “wow” factor.
United added multi-segment award booking, and that will be a convenience for business travelers.
The airline also added a new seat map design; travel cards for mobile boarding passes, MileagePlus and UnitedClub, and a Travel Wallet containing upcoming flight information, and notifications.
The airline says the update, which is optimized for the iPhone and iOS 7 and compatible with the iPad, also provides an enhanced calender for flight search, expanded flight search results, a revamped display of mobile boarding passes with multi-passenger view.
An update to United Android app for the KitKat operating system will be coming in a few months, United says.
