Fresh new design, more account details…and iPhone!
It’s a big day for MileWise! The team has been working hard on some great stuff over here, and we’re excited to show off what we’ve built.
Beyond an updated look and a more focused user experience, we’ve also got a couple surprise features.
One of the most common questions we get is “when are you going to have an iPhone app?”
We finally get to answer: Today!
Whether you’re a hard-core points junkie constantly checking their balances, or a harried traveler looking for quick access to account information, we’ve got you covered.
Track your balances, monitor account activity, and browse trips you can take using your rewards. We’ll even send you notifications when your balances change, or your rewards are in danger of expiring.
Accounts and Explore
Another thing we’ve heard is that while “Trips For You” can be fun to browse, they’re distracting when just trying to get a quick update on your accounts.
So we’ve created two tabs called Explore and Accounts. Beyond being more focused on what you actually want to do at any time, this logical separation has let us beef up each feature independently without cluttering up your screen.
The Accounts tab should feel familiar, but has gained a few nice features:
- Graph of your balance history over time
- Filter your accounts by category (Airlines, Hotels, Credit Cards, etc.)
- Account number, status, and expiration date always visible
- A Travel Profile that lets you customize MileWise to fit your personal preferences
The Explore tab is the new home for exploring trips you can take with your points, with a couple improvements. At the top are trips you can actually afford based on your current reward balances. At the bottom we show trips you can work towards, along with bars representing your progress towards earning the trip. In the future, we want to build tools to help you earn these trips even faster!
We’d love to hear any feedback. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements in the coming weeks.
