American Airlines introduced a much improved user interface with the fall 2013 launch of the latest version, 3.0, of its smartphone/tablet app.
The user interface on the new app is a huge improvement over the earlier versions, which received much criticism for their inconsistent elements and bizarre gradient backgrounds.
A new feature is that the app automatically assigns seats if no seats are selected for a flight. Passbook push notifications in the iOS flavor of the new app-version now also display the flight number.
The app offers all the usual functions of the previous versions including mobile boarding passes, seat maps, standby lists, and flight information.
The American Airlines mobile app is available free of cost for Android and Apple iPhone/iPads.
