Skip the Airport’s US Customs Line

This article from Apple Insider introduces a new mobile app that can expedite reentry into the US via certain airports. The app, Mobile Passport, has been authorized by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and can streamline an entire family’s customs process. Without the app the typical wait time averages over an hour.

From the article:

“Following data entry, the same questions asked on the paper form at the airport are asked by the app. After the plane lands, users connect to either a cellular network or Wi-Fi, and submit the entered data. In a few minutes, a barcode is returned to the app that is valid at the Mobile Passport Control desk for up to four hours. All information is encrypted, and shared only with Customs and Border Protection.”
