GoGo Entertainment app review – GoGo quickly away from it

Many airlines are turning their in-flight entertainment over to GoGo Entertainment (who also controls GoGo Internet in the flights). The use and flow of this application as an entertainment server is horrid. Here is my story.

On a recent American Airlines flight (formerly US Air leg from St Louis to Charlotte) I noticed all the in seat music was disabled. The magazine and agents directed me to the GoGo Internet to then hook into the GoGo Entertainment to get the music, movies and TV shows. I presumed some would be free and some would be pay. I presumed I could use any newer device for sure. I successfully connected to the GoGo Internet and the link given to get the entertainment was invalid. Here is the link they give in the magazine

American Way Magazine entertainment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now attempting to go tho that page while in fight or even here at the computer shows that it is invalid; the page could not be displayed. The real link is http://content.gogoair.com/american-we/ or http://videoonaa.com to get to the right page.

aa.com error

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So I found myself in a conundrum. Amazingly Google worked and I found the webpage with the links I needed. To no surprise there was an app called GoGo Entertainment (used to be GoGo Video Player) you had to download for Android or iOS.  Being in the air neither of them would download. Some reviews have said they go it to work but this just gave errors. So I decided to wait till the flights home (same path in reverse) and to get the app before I got on the plane. Side note I should mention is that this second leg down was First Class, International and over three hours and still had no entertainment.

I successfully downloaded the app both on Android and iOS (I wanted to be sure) and headed to the flights home.  After a long delay of saying GoGo Internet had no access to the Internet it finally connected.  I was then greeted with a page that said I had no content so please browse the catalog. I happily said yes and was sent to a web browser page and not a page in the app itself.  The web then only shows some movies and a few more rentals.  Nothing for free. No music. No content that is regularly free when on board.  Nothing free like Southwest Airlines offers (both free and paid using your own device).

So not only was the app not there the entire first flights down, but then there was no content to view or listen to for the entire way back. I do not see how AA can turn on the in flight free music channels that have been there forever. Maybe they are saving royalty payments? But to then offer an app you cannot get easily (bad links then cannot donwload) to only find limited content is a killer deal.

I hope @AmericanAir sees this article and fixes the links and the entire process/agreement with GoGo if this is their future entertainment plans.

Apps to spy on your childrens mobile phones
Thu, Aug 11th 2016 12:42p   Chris Miller
We look at the growing number of apps that spy on the mobile phone activity of your children.  An increasing number of parents feel the need to spy on their children’s cell phones to keep up with who they talk to and what they share. One thing to remember is that all of the data you are tracking is being sent from your child’s phone to the Internet and then stored there. While all of these services use encryption to store the data, the fear it is out there is always on our mind. Wh

How to create a Pokestop for Pokemon Go. Good for businesses?
Thu, Jul 14th 2016 5:35p   Chris Miller
I could go into Pokemon Go security or even how to play, but what about creating Pokestops as a way to increase foot traffic to your business? As brought up by a friend during a Facebook posting, a Pokestop can be beneficial. What is a Pokestop? As defined by Niantic Labs, a Pokestop is a place to collect items such as Pokeballs, eggs and a ton of other items to help you catch, grow and maintain Pokemon.  Sounds simple right? There are so many online resource right now showing you every corne
