I find most travel apps to be lacking, Marriott included. I prefer TripTracker to replace all your travel apps. It puts flights, hotel, and rental car all in one unified view. I travel weekly and it's never let me down.
I've been using it for a while, and it's OK. Some of the things, like finding the photo gallery of a hotel take just a little more work, but are there if you look around. I do notice that if you look on upcoming reservations, it may be blank, but if you store your rewards and sign in information on the phone, and then select the Rewards tab at the bottom, it will automatically sign you in, and then when you go back to reservations, the list is filled in.
I would get it, because it puts it at your fingertips when you want to see something. I find that if I have both choices (iPhone or desktop) available, I will choose desktop, since it is easier and faster. Nice things about the mobile version are that you can see what's already in place quickly, and you can stay signed in by just choosing the Rewards tab and it automatically signs you in again, based on the sign in information that you stored on your phone settings.
Actually no. In addition, I haven't even been successful on my browser on my iPhone either. I will have to play with that part when I get some time. On the browser, when I go to sign it, it takes me to the mobile page, which when I sign in, takes me to the mobile app. Then I can't get to the browser from there. If I go back to the browser and refresh at the screen where I was showing signed out, it takes me back to the mobile screen. I will work on that more later, to see if I can find a work-around.
As far as the iPhone is considered, the full website doesn't work well in the Safari Browser on the phone. Some of the things in the pages don't show up (such as the Activity, Communications, and Alerts, etc..). Any way they can look at the whole site and how it works on Mobile Platforms at the same time?
Thanks, Laura. Will be glad to hear when this is added. I also agree with tryt53's comment about the Marriott web site not working well in Safari. This may be more a problem with Safari than with the web site. Or it may be a problem with the small size of the iPhone window. In any event, it will be good to get as much functionality as possible wrapped into the app. Cheers.
