They didn't make one for CO. They didn't put much effort into this app as they just plopped a new label onto this app (it is basically the CO app with a few minor chances).

Hopefully they will upgrade the app after integration is over and make it all nice and pretty. I rather have them focus on the actual underlying system integration issues/bugs instead.

+1 to this. The only way to see if you are a Premier on the mobile boarding pass is to find the 2P that is added to the end of the Mileage Plus at the bottom. I suppose you could show your plastic card with the mobile boarding pass but that seems like a bit of a pain.

Is there also a website like pda.continental.com that can check for UAL flights?

Thanks!

Mobile .bomb is terrible and I'm stuck with it using BB.

Apparently I'm going to be flying from ZRO-TKT in Feb 2012 and then again in Jun 2012.

I'm guessing this is a result of cancelled tickets? Although amusingly, if I click through, the app tells me that I'm going be flying to Tak, in Thailand, on a 0 minute flight in coach. Sounds good to me!

Well, I used it to check-in for my flight tomorrow and I'll test it out by just saying "First Class?" lol..

Thanks!

I believe there's a link on the mobile CO site.

I think the initial OP meant that he wants the features from pda.continental.com included with a mobile.united.com, namely the upgrade stand-by list

+1, and for the regular site, make flight stats more like CO.

Was looking at the app today, and this is a fairly good start. Looks and acts much like the CO app, but can see a few small differences.

Just went on to do a dummy booking on my usual CVG-YYZ route. Kudos for the IT guys at UA for actually building a platform where I actually have a choice of UA flights to choose from, instead of only AC codeshare and maybe 1-2 connections. I've had this problem for about a year (maybe they'll fix this on the real web site). Also seemed to be able to get this as a simple multi-city booking, something that has been the work around on .bomb for me until two weeks ago, when that stopped working too (after selecting flights, get an error everytime now).

On the down side, there does seem to be a bug with seat selection, where all E+ seats appear to be occupied. I presume the issue is it doesn't take into account status in the seat selection screen. I know it knows who I am - seeing as I logged in, it says my name and that I'm premier at the top of the screen, and that while booking, it has my name and secure flight info. from my profile. So it should know that i have access to E+.

But very glad to see I have mobile booking access now. Can't wait till they allow me to use e-certs on this platform, too.

Yes, that what was I am looking for, instead of dl the new united app to see if u have been upgraded just log on to a website like the continental.pda.com one and u can see where a/c is coming from where u are on upgrade list. mobile.united.com doesn't do that I just checked it out

Nice app but I'd like to be able to manage my seat selections on my reservations.

We're at 550,000 Android devices activated every day. I'd say that's sizable enough to give some priority
