Love the ability to monitor the standby lists when I go that route for some last minute travel!

At least on iPhone 4 if you have the vibrate button switched it doesn't play the music.

3 requests:

(1) Android version (sure this is coming since Continental app is already Android)
(2) Turn off the music
(3) Ability to change seats (same thing I can do on pda.continental.com)

I'm liking the App, but in all fairness, I love the CO App as it is one of my favorite apps on my phone with all of its features especially the lounge search function!

I've always loved the CO app. Good to see it's nearly the same, if not exactly so. ^

Putting in my vote for choosing seats as the most important missing feature! Otherwise it's just the CO app

You can't be surprised by this - everyone said it would simply be ported over - I'm surprised they did not fully publicly announce it and that they released it this early.

Looks good!

My top suggestions:

1. Showing the load in C/F for upgrade lists
2. Changing seats in your reservations
3. Fixing 'BusinessFirst' / First / Economy+ distinction.

Finally!!!! I've had pretty good luck with the CO app in the past and hoping for the same with this latest version. Seat changing option is definitely needed though.

Hmmm I didn't get a prompt to allow push notifications nor do I see the United app listed under Settings/Notifications. The CO app is there though.

Maybe I missed something somewhere?

Sorry for the newbie question but where do you see the upgrade list in flight status? I'm trying to check on an International flight for tomorrow for my wife but couldn't find anything. Thanks.

Great app--only thing that seems to be missing is the "Where is this aircraft coming from feature."
