I (Doug) downloaded the app and paid the in-app fee for the ability of the app to “remember” the data I fed into it. Upon reentering the USA, I showed my phone to the rep at the immigration hall and was indeed ushered to a special line. In my case, I ended up having to stand for around 7 minutes. Perhaps it was still faster than the longer line (where people were filling out the forms on the electronic kiosks), but in my case, it would have been faster to use Global Entry. It was a 60-second walk-through at this particular immigration hall (in Minneapolis). So Mobile Passport might be good for those who want to save the $85 — but it won’t get you TSA-Pre on all your flights AND it might not clear *quite* as quickly as Global Entry would.
