Currently has a flaw. I created an account but once logged out the app keeps saying that the email or password are incorrect. Two password resets tried and the same problem after each one. So it is not possible to actually use the app. It's a pity as this has the potential for improving the customs experience. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

There is absolutely no support for users of this app. I ran into an issue with my child's passport which post scan, came back as an error indicating their passport is linked to another account. But what account? Not well thought out.

Wast of time. The airline folks suggested using this to streamline everything. I filled everything out and when we got to Nassau, the Bahamian officials wouldn't use it. I was sent to the back of the line and had to find a pen (there were none at the forms, luckily someone let me use theirs) and fill out forms by hand.
