They keep improving it. Integrating the movie player was great, and it keeps getting easier and simpler to use. A recent improvement makes it possible to keep a small TV window open on the screen while doing other things. I was having some difficulty logging in to the entertainment portal and wifi, saved found that restrained y my phone inflight seems to do the trick

Why design an app that eliminates 70% of your customers. I have four Android devices and this app does not work on three of them. Poor decision by the development team. App does work with some glitches on the device that the app is available. Have not been on a single flight where the app does not crash during a movie. Better than nothing, but could be drastically improved.

App forced removal from my Android phone - no explanation - just wont work. We love the airline - top marks in almost everything they do - but to kill an app - which basically now requires us to print boarding passes and check in by computer is not only not smart - but a great way to get me to explore other airline options. Come on team - fix this, or at least provide a quick easy way to transfer the data from a computer to your cell phone for flights.
