Delta App 5.01 - Opinions
 
Am I the only one that thinks the visual presentation is horrendous? The SkyMiles tab is especially bad and the white space everywhere is really harsh on the eyes.

I am looking forward to the today page modifications however.

FYI - I知 on iOS .

The font also seems to be on the small side , or maybe I'm just old. I've been getting the urge to tell people to get off my lawn and telling them they are going the wrong way in the grocery store aisle.

Just checked out the seat map. A pale green now indicates your seat. Among the stark white background and the bright blue available seats, it is very difficult to see. The overall UI feels like wireframe the contrast is horrible.

I agree that the color contrast is horrendous. I sent a message to delta and I would suggest others do as well.

I thought the old colors worked just fine.

I agree the pale green color that indicates your assigned seat is a little tough to make out sometimes. Other than that, so far no complaints from me.

Seat maps are a lot harder to understand, not as intuitive.

TSA agent complained how small the precheck logo was this am.

I知 not sure if I feel proud as a DM with a pink/fuschia screen. I値l go back to my green KM screen.

I forgot about the color coding by status.

It’s funny that the same time DL changes their app to almost an all white background, AA has added support for dark mode on iOS.

It looks a lot more like the Virgin Atlantic app (which I assume was developed/maintained by the same team due to the JV).

I actually kind of like it. It is similar to the website and that's a good thing IMO.

I am sure the DYKWIA crowd is pleased with this change, but for the rest of us, its a little embarrassing and very difficult to read...even with young eyes:( Does Delta do focus groups before releasing these changes or do they just employ a bunch of yesmen that "ya, that looks good boss!"

DLASflyer Oct 7, 19 12:41 pm

I also like it. Clean and refined.

This seems to be true only in the booking tab where I spend the least time.

I'm pretty much okay with everything, except for the colors of the seat map. Those are simply heinous.

jackvogt Oct 7, 19 1:37 pm

It is a bit bright but I like it. It's modern and clean. The data I need is easily accessible. It also doesn't take 5 minutes to load like AAs. Still an A+ in my book.
