Not for tablets. I use this app (or attempt to use) on both my Galaxy Fold 4 and my Galaxy Tab s8 Ultra. In general, it functions as expected. The problems are that the app will not turn to portrait mode on my tablet (which is the most often used orientation for tablets) and I can't put the boardig pass in my Samsung or Google wallet for ease of access. While not deal-breakers, you'd think a multi-billon dollar company like American could afford to make the app a bit more accessible.

It makes the traveling easy! Very helpful and very convenient! I use it for booking the flights, boarding the airplane, mapping the airport... It has nearly all the info I need for traveling. Thumbs up and highly recommend it! PS: I read other comments after I posted mine. Can't believe so many low ratings. I've used it for over a year. Also experienced the gate change and sweated to rush to the correct gate but overall I have felt the improvement and my experience with AA is pleasant so far.

Actually really enjoyed this app. I have had a really positive experience using it. The UI is a little frustrating but the functionality and updates were nearly flawless. I was able to change my flight as needed for a delay due to weather. Instead of having to wait in line and talk to someone or wait until I arrived at the terminal after my flight was gone I was able to alter my flights seemlessly through the app. Its updated in real time as far as I can tell too. Will certainly use again.
