Not iPad friendly
I just downloaded this app and am impressed with its features, but I have not yet had the opportunity to try a real-world test of its functionality. There are a couple design issues that, to me, are major.
First, the app inexplicably disabled the use of the Apple Bluetooth keyboard while simultaneously making the virtual keyboard disappear.
Secondly, the app was designed solely for an iPhone. As compact as iPads are for the abilities they have, they are still heavy and cumbersome to hold and operate in portrait orientation. That is why most iPad users operate their device in landscape orientation and have it attached to a keyboard folio or a folio stand that holds and displays the iPad in landscape orientation.
There are a great many of us who have eye problems that greatly reduce our ability to read the small print on a phone, and there are many of us who lack the hand strength to hold and operate an iPad in portrait orientation, which is why it is so critical for apps to function on an iPad in landscape orientation. I would greatly appreciate it if this issue would be rectified.
Helps being on time
Little things that get you to your flight in time without waiting at your gate for hours, that’s what I got from using the app. The ability to get times on TSA check in wait times is great especially in busy airports during peak travel times. Being a known traveler I just assume there won’t be a long wait but when there is a long wait I need to know or I’ll be late.
Thought it'd be better for checking security lines
Seems to rely on people uploading their wait times in security lines to give wait estimates. That's not a good model. A) folks not great at guessing wait times, B) I know I'm usually more focused on getting my shoes and belt back on than updating the TSA app with an accurate assessment of my wait time.
Does TSA not track this? Why can't that info be made more accessible? I would think it'd make their job easier by giving people option to choose least busy security checkpoint, spreading things around more efficiently.
