We’ve completely redesigned our app with new navigation and user interface. We took all of the same features from our old app and updated the experience. Plus we added some new features along the way including:
•Persistent menu for quicker navigation throughout the app
•Contextual links to intuitively move from task to task
•Airport information content pages
•Non-logged in users can now view reservations
•Ability for mixed adult + senior bookings
•Showing the number of Rapid Rewards points earned while purchasing
Along with this complete redesign, we’re announcing the roll out of mobile boarding pass throughout 2014. We’re starting with nonstop and direct flights originating from Austin, TX* with other cities to be added during the year. With this update when your departure city is eligible, you’ll be ready to utilize this exciting feature.
Most importantly, we’re not stopping here. We’re listening to your feedback and have already started on our next release to continue enhancing our mobile experience.
*Austin mobile boarding pass begins November 21st, 2013.
