Chase updated their app this week, to make it a bit quicker to login to your account(s), all while keeping it secure, which is the most important thing here.

If you've flown Delta before, then you've probably used their app. I have to say their app provides the most functionality out of all the other airlines' apps. But the app was just plain ugly. Well Delta has changed that with the latest version of their app. They've done a fresh new redesign, and it does look really nice. It still has all the usual features of showing your boarding pass, your flight times, delays, etc., but it looks much nicer.
