United Airlines now offering updated app with personal device entertainment service

United Airlines has released a new app that now includes entertainment content for using on one's personal devices. Revised with an iOS-7 compatible design that is optimized for iPhone, the new United app features travel information such as a user's mobile boarding pass card, updates on flight departure, reservations and more.

In v2.0.13, personalized entertainment service is available on select aircraft, accessible through the app. Users can browse and watch select movies and TV shows on their personal mobile device when connected to the "United_Wi-Fi" network. To determine if a flight offers a service connection for entertainment content access, users can go to the Inflight Amenities tab on the Flight State and Information page, or check the Amenities section of the Flight Status Details screen within the app. The free United App for iOS is available for download through iTunes.
