Don't spend money before checking it. Too bad they don't make a way to test it before getting on the flight. My Samsung Tab isn't compatible. Luckily it's borrowed, but lots of reviews where people spend money on movies only to find it doesn't work. I almost purchased this tab just to watch movies. I got lucky. Someone should find a real solution. This is worse than nothing at all.
Worst $8 ever spent. Make that $16 because I tried it first on my smartphone, than on my surface. Shame. 4+ hr flight. Thanks SW. I hope your get your WiFi act together. And since the bandwidth is so limited, I cannot use it to access other internet based library's I own either.
Works great! Download BEFORE getting on your next Southwest flight. This is a free app. The negative reviews being posted are by those who didn't read about the app prior to flying and downloaded after take off. The $8 is the In-Air WiFi connection fee to be able to browse the internet in addition to download the app.
Sad Sad Sad Downloaded it on two devices, Apple and Android. I have the latest version and it wouldn't load. You would think that someone would 1) Read the reviews to see that their App wasn't functioning properly and 2) Fix it. I find it a sad state of affairs that a corporation would allow something this poorly put,together to remain unfixed. Simply sad.
Must have a short compatibility list My Samsung Galaxy S6 is not supported. But, like others have said, you can't find out whether your device is supported or not until you test it on a flight. Poor design.
When I tried to watch a movie on my Galaxy S5, it said my phone wasn't compatible. It also said I needed some older version of the Airtime Player. Southwest really needs to work on how they interface with this app.
Airtime Player has been completely re-written to allow for the broadest device support to date. Thanks to a new technology, with this update, travelers using devices from all major manufactures, and running Android 4.1 up to the latest version, will be able to enjoy quality VOD playback during their journey. We apologize for issues with the previous version.
