New iPad App. & 'Know It All' AA Trivia Game

Video on Youtube today posted by AA possibly featuring brp : http://youtu.be/LS5XXAq8HNI

New AA iPad app with rebranding evident (similar to SSCI machine software) together with an AA Trivia game with ability to win 100,000 miles.

I know that many are disappointed with the re-branding but times move on and I am for one very excited for AA.

A new dawn.

The app is also new for iPhone. Has the new branding, but without the new trivia game.

Couldn't be me. I don't have, and have no interest in owning, an iPad. I'm waiting for a real tablet (one where folks can do real things) to be released

Cheers.

Reminds me of the Trivia game in the back of seatbacks on Delta. Except it looks like this is another thing to suck up the bandwidth on the gogo enabled flights. Just sayin'

Noticed that my SWU count is wrong and I can't play 'know it all' - server error

Without going too far OT, isn't that what the Surface does? I'm an AAPL/ios/Mac OS user but the I have to say the Surface is a pretty neat device. One of my colleagues has it an uses it extensively for productivity (full MS Office) complete with plug-ins.

That's exactly what I'm waiting for, but the second generation with the Intel processor and full Windows 8 (as opposed to the current Arm-based unit with the reduced Windows 8). ou read my mind

Cheers.

Do you mean as opposed to the normally clear, concise, and on track threads found in the AA forum?

Regards

I was just asked to update my iPad AA app and saw we can apparently now change seats AFTER check-in!

(Stealing a post from another thread, which I just happened to stumble across ask since I don't own an iPhone.)

The "I'm sorry, you can't change your seat online or via phone AAgent because you've already checked in" problem could finally be going away. Now I wonder if you can do outside of an app, like on the regular website or on the phone...

(This doesn't affect me very often as I normally don't check-in until I get to the airport, just so I can still change seats if a better one pops up while I'm enroute. Only time this strategy backfires on the rare occasions I'm waitlisted for a SWU and need to check in early.)

Gotta say its really nice to change seats within the app - still a bit buggy but light years ahead of the old going onto the site
