Looks like it's only on the iOS app? I don't see it on Android.

I had to refresh the Google Play Store a few times before the United app update appeared.

Captain addresses the plane via PA: "So which of you have been practicing your landings into 28L? We're gonna have a contest on who can do it best..."

This is basically the old Flight Control game that used to be available on iOS many years ago.

It is, and I am so happy its back! Flight Control was truly my favorite iPhone game of all time. I dont play much as far as games, but this is one.

Guess I need to load the United app on my iPad now, too!

Are there any actual substantive improvements on the new app, or would I do just as well with the old one?

I don't play games on my cell phone. Why should I when there are so many FlyerTalk threads to read?

Plus, I avoid bloatware.

I have no issues with the game, but at least on Android the ability to just view an upcoming reservation seems to have been removed and replaced with a choice to change seats, change the itin and other options, none of them is just to simply view a reservation.

Lame isn't it? Wonder if UA Digital Insider is tracking this thread and can report this bug.

This is SUPER annoying to me too. Selecting, "View more ptions" is not how I expect to be able to view a reservation.

This is incorrect. The "View more options" selection is to simply view the reservation.
