Wink Android App for AA Dining (and others)

Hi All
I'm a software developer, I was tired of missing miles so I made myself an app to search for the restaurants around me that gives miles.
I did it for American Airlines but it seems that it also works for United and others.

Anyway, it's free, it's on Android Market https://market.android.com/details?i...world.aadining

All feedback is welcome (and if you like it and want to click on some ad from time to time, It will help a lot )

Well, hope it helps you.

EDIT 2012-08-20: As many users requested it, now you can do manual searches by addres and/or zip code

Awesome, downloading now. Does it work for the other airlines just because their list is the same, or can you select which airline you want?

Looks like it's basically the same for american, united, delta, us, southwest.

the restaurants I tried basically work for all companies but since I'm not 100% sure I will do my homework this weekend and most likely there will be a configuration to select the airline next week

Maybe you could just add a logo with which airlines are included? That way you could do 1 search and know which credit card to use.

Perhaps someone could write a comparison with the official RN Dining Android app:

I think mine is easier to use (at least to me) and easier to see which restaurants gives you miles.

The official one is faster. and have more detailed information that I'm not including because I think it's too much.

But that's not a fair review

Sure, if I have time this week I will add something to change the airline.

Nice, now find a way to get some decent restaurants in my area.

BTW - Southwest has a dining program too. Can you add that one?
