United Airlines launched their own stand-alone application for Windows 8 users this morning. The new app makes it easier to stay on top of important travel information and flight data right from your Live Tile.

United’s robust website and mobile travel tools enable our customers to get the information they need, buy the products they want and choose services they desire when and where they want.”
“Apps come to life on Windows Phone, thanks to features like Live Tiles and lockscreen notifications,” said Todd Brix , general manager, Windows Phone Apps, Microsoft Corp. “United Airlines takes advantage of these features and more to enable users to quickly access all of their travel information in one glance.”
There are other features that users can take advantage of as well including support for Windows Phone Live Tiles for flight status updates directly on the Start screen, United social media networking information, access to United timetables, Flight View, which shows flight maps and weather status, and Sudoku games to keep you busy between flights.
