American Airlines has unveiled a new app for Android devices that seems to offer all of the functionality of its iPhone predecessor, touting it as "the app that knows where you're going." Clever.
At a price of "free," you can't really go wrong if you're on the go a lot and you tend to fly American. It lets you view your flight details (gate, seat, flight status) and provides access to your Mobile Boarding Pass, which I've been hesitant to use without a print backup, but that's just me in general -- and not a reflection on American or the app.
It also monitors your place on the standby list and tracks your elite status progress. Long wait or delay? No worries, as the trusty app delivers a game of Sudoku to keep you entertained. It also lets you set parking reminders.
My take? Recommended.
