United Airlines is one of the biggest airline companies in the United States and the whole world and many of its customers own iOS devices. To make sure that it keeps them pleased, the company has issued recently an important update to its iOS app, including the in-flight entertainment service that makes use of the onboard Wi-Fi to stream movies and TV shows to users for free.
United Airlines is proud to offer the all-new United app, with an iOS 7-friendly design that is optimized for the iPhone and compatible with the iPad (look for an iPad App in 2014!). Offering features from flight booking to flight status and more, the United app is your indispensable travel companion.
The app itself is quite new, being first announced in March, but since then itâ€™s been constantly updated with new features and options. Now, version 2.0.13 lets users stream more than 150 movies and nearly 200 TV shows for free while in flight. At the moment, the new feature is limited to iOS devices and laptops, but Android support should make its way sometime in the near future.
So, if you plan on flying with United Airlines in the near future or if youâ€™re a loyal customers, then you can download the app for free from the iOS App Store to make use of the new features. Also, before boarding, fliers can check the Inflight Amenities tab on United.comâ€™s Flight Status & Information webpage to confirm that their flight offers the new personal device entertainment system.
