141

Unbelievable.

Fly Delta 3.0 gives the airline's Android app a much-needed makeover

5
Fly Delta 3.0

Everything you need to fly is now in one convenient place

Delta Air Lines today has pushed out version 3.0 of its Fly Delta app, bringing with it a much-needed visual refresh. You've now got a handy "Today" feature (tucked in a standard drawer along with a bunch of other shortcuts you'll want to use) that puts everything you need for a day of flying in one place. That means no more clicking through to your trip, and finally to your boarding pass. You'll be able to check in, check or change your seat, and track your bags all from one place. One swipe to the right will show you your arriving and connecting information. You'll be able to see all this once you're within the 24-hours-from-takeoff window.

(And, of course, the Fly Delta app is still 100 percent compatible with Android Wear, even if your airport isn't.)
