American Airlines removes app from the Windows Phone Store; airline will no longer support the platform
The app allowed those using a phone powered by Microsoft's mobile OS to book a flight, check-in, find out the gate number, pick a seat on the plane, and check flight-status. A virtual boarding pass would be added to the user's mobile wallet, to make flying less of a hassle.
Back in 2012, the airline choose the Samsung GALAXY Note for their 17,000 flight attendants. That gesture was repeated with an upgrade the following year to the Samsung GALAXY Note II. And American's pilots also use the Apple iPad (using special software) instead of heavy paper charts and maps.
This hasn't impacted either the iOS or Android app for the airline, both of which which remain available to download from the App Store and Google Play Store, respectively.
