List common bugs/issues here:
- I still can't figure out how to delete flights in the "Flight Status" tab. You can add flights by toggling the "Push Notifications" on the Flight Status Details page. But then you can't remove flights on the "Flight Status" tab.

Numerous folks have raised that issue and so far no one has found the information in the app (although you can go to the mobile site (united.com) on your smartphone to retrieve the information.

The main usage thing is getting used to clicking on the bottom for everything I used to tap the left side of the screen for. I do agree that there's too much useless clutter now on the home page...oh well. Not the end of the world, but annoyed at the endless credit card ads. Chase must be giving them some sweet change for that advertising spot

Are reservations that have a FareLock no longer visible with the countdown timer?

UA app is great. But the things I really wanted I still donít see:

1) ability to use travel credit
2) easy access to those credits
3) ability to see upgrade certs(as noted above)

Downloaded the new App and getting used to it. Really dumb question here............where is my boarding pass?!?!? After I checked in it only gave me an option to send boarding pass to my email. It has to be displayed somewhere on the App but I am too jet lagged to find it. Help!!!

Marketing needed to show it was not a cost center so they emblazoned the app with ads galore.

I don't like the advertisement and the "Just for you" sections. I wish there was a way to remove these two items. Other than that the ap isn't hideous.

Used for flight today. It kept causing my iPhone to auto-dim. Anyone else have this issue?

For the same reason they keep asking me to get a United branded Chase credit card when I already have one.

It's odd that they don't do some sort of processing and then use that ad space for something else that I may, or may not, be interested in otherwise it is a total waste of real estate. But as I am not switching to the new app as yet it is a moot point. I'll wait a little bit longer as I think I like the old one better from the sounds of it but will give them time to iron things out a little to flyertalkarati tastes!

Question for other GS members. After downloading new app check in for flight today..
I am listed as a Global ServicesSM. On old app was just Global Services.

What does the SM indicate? Super Man?, Stupid Mistake?, or?

Asked United and they had not clue. Does anyone else see this?
Thank you

"SM" is Service Mark, similar to a Trade Mark (TM), but for a service rather than a product.
