Finally! Downloading now

EDIT: Wow, really neat design. I love all the features, although not all information seems to be available for all the hotels. Keep up the good work, this is my favourite hotel app as of this moment

New SPG App for Android

Will these bookings qualify for the current app booking bonus?

Looks like there is a bug with the stays, only my previous stays are showing on my account not the future ones... otherwise great app

Nice!! Best look of the hotel apps.

My past stays show, but none of my account activity shows. (e.g., the points earned for each stay, credit card statement, etc.) I assume it's just a launch issue and will get fixed soon...

No past present or future stays showing for me. Points balance is showing. I like the look of the app.

This is great news. The app is really attractive and I now understand a bit of why it has taken so long All of my existing reservations are showing up and I just booked a new one as well - having to enter CC information each time will be annoying but that's minor (and the app indicates that this is temporary).

Thanks!

Very nice, but a platform-specific app in 2012? Really? I don't get it -- why didn't you just develop a kick-... HTML5 app (like the FT's) that works on any platform (iOS, Android, Windows, Unix, etc)?

I'm just afraid that we're going to get far less that if you pooled of your mobile money into a single HTML5 app.
