    Go to the market and get it.

    My favorite feature: it has a parking feature built in with the ability to take a pic, save a note, and save a location.

    Can't believe this slipped under my radar, big DL & Android fan.

    First impression: It's pretty flaky. It crashed twice on my Motorola Droid, Android 2.2 in two uses within less than five minutes. Also, while it looks really nice, there doesn't seem to be much I can do with it. Most functions appear to be read-only. Would be nice to be able to change my seat. Picking different flights during IROPS is probably a pipe dream.

    Will be curious to see if it displays the GIS data (upgrade list especially) for my flight this Thursday.

    Even though I logged in, it didn't seem to be able to populate my name and status at the top. I haven't really played around with it too much and I don't have any other android airline apps since United and US don't have them (do they?)

    I got this today too. I logged in and did see my name/skymiles numbers. I had to populate my email and phone number but it took a few tries to get the phone number saved, I still don't know what I did to save it. I do like the parking space reminder because I am always forgetting where I parked since I can use my E-pass (ticket less) at MCO now. [​IMG]

    Nicer interface, but not quite as comprehensive than m.delta.com

    I don't have a problem with the mobile.delta.com interface I use on my WM phone. It has a simple but efficient layout.

    Phineas, go to the Market and search for Delta. It's a free app simply called Delta (Delta Air lines, Inc.) It has the current livery widget.

    No, I didn't have a problem with it either. But now I have a little icon that I press and it brings me to a pretty place where I can't do as much, like look up a fare or book a flight. Whee.

    Has anyone been able to tell if the Android app does push alerts like the ipod/phone/pad version?

    According to a Delta rep on the FT forum, no (, not yet).

    Looks great, much better than going to the mobile or non-mobile web-site.

    Is anyone else a little underwhelmed by the app? Don't get me wrong...I really appreciate DL putting this out there, but it has nowhere near the functionality of CO's app. I surely hope this is a first step and not an ending point.

    I want this app, but need to upgrade my phone first (still on the G1)... I should get around to that in the coming days.
    It looks like the overall opinion is pretty positive so far, that helps.

    I'll have to see if it works on an Android Tablet after picking one of them up, too (in the next month or two).

    I asked that question on that other IBB, and got nothing but crickets chirping...
