Fantastic. Finally a native mPass android app.

It is not listed on the mPass page yet: http://www.airnewzealand.co.nz/mpass
but has been on the Market for about a week now:
http://www.appbrain.com/app/nz.co.airnz.mpass
just search for mPass.

There is a slight niggle that the back button exits the app, rather than goes back a screen, but hopefully that should be fixed soon.

I forgot to post about this. I was in the Koru Lounge in AKL last week when I saw Air NZ tweet about it. I thought I would be the first one to board using the Android version and downloaded the program.

I then found out that the login wasn't persistent - if you left the program it would ask you for login information again, so pretty useless.

I told Air NZ about this and a new version was released on Friday, after they found the problem. It's now working fine...

Good to see Air New Zealand develop an app for the Android platform. Hope this means other big companies will follow too!

This may convince my spouse to get an Android phone. She flies several times a month.

Looks good!

Jughead: anyone else having these issues its got me stumped!


Have you tried downloading it direct from the Android Market?

I searched on "airnz" and found it straight away.

If you can't get it, PM me a Gmail address and I'll email you "mpass.1.1.1.apk" as an attachment. If you access Gmail through the browser - NOT the Gmail app - then you'll be able to download the attachment and install it.

It's a free app....so should be no piracy issues.
