While looking through the recent app list tonight, I noticed that not less than 2 hours ago, American Airlines landed its very own app in the Android Market.

Following the other big players in the flying business, American Airlines is now letting you:

  • view your reservation info
  • check in
  • access your mobile boarding pass - this is excellent
  • view your place on upgrade and standby lists
  • take pictures of where you parked (there are better ways, you know... *cough* GPS *cough* ParkDroid *cough*)
  • view your Elite status and progress
  • book flights
  • check flight status and schedules
  • play Sudoku (what the?..)

Not bad at all for what seems to be a great tool with a pleasant interface and thoughtfully positioned menus. If you are flying American soon, go ahead and give it a go - the app is free and weighs in only about 2.6MB.
