What Happened? Used to be really good. Now it just crashes all the time... To the point that it's unusable! Also, there is a known bug for Android where it tells you that you have lounge access for a domestic flight (because of elite status), but you really don't.
Needs Improvement Although I like the app, it crashes continually to the point where it is useless and the descriptions of the lounges are undetailed and generic. I wish each lounge had an individual description with some of the amenities or lack their of, so it would be easier to judge what lounges would be better.
Don't bother Don't trust anything this app tells you. If you put in a domestic first class trip (e.g. with Delta airline), it will tell you you have free lounge access but in fact you don't. If the app develop people don't know their stuff, then don't make an app that gives out false information and causes inconvenience to others!!!!
Nice idea. Looks good but data is wrong There is a need for an app like this and aesthetically the app looks great but the resulting data is just incorrect. It tells me that I get lounge access for free from American Airlines because I'm Platinum Status level. That's completely inaccurate. Even a Platinum Status requires either a co-branded credit card or $500 annual payment to access the lounge for free. I didn't pick that credit card or a lounge membership in the settings.
Awful from a design standpoint The transitions disorient the user, the app doesn't follow any Android design guidelines, navigation is a complete mess, and there's a noticeable delay after touching anything. You can't just browse lounges once you've created a trip, and it's not easy to see what kind of access someone else might have without unchecking all of your settings. LoungeBuddy really needs to redesign this. This is a great example of form over function, it's almost unusable.
Always crashes! Been trying to use it for a month, and every single time it crashes. Would have loved to use for all upcoming trips, but sadly never works!
