If you are in an Apple Store for an appointment, you can use the Apple Store app to let them know that you’ve arrived, using the new check-in feature. You can also use it to request help. Note that iOS 4 is required to utilize this feature.
Other new features of the Apple Store app:
- ordering engraving and gift wrapping on select online purchases
- reserving items for pickup at your local Apple Retail Store
- adding Apple Retail Store reservations directly to iCal
It certainly is handy to check in from your iPhone, especially in a busy store. However, my experience in checking in for appointments has always been pretty good, with very little wait time, if any. And sometimes it’s nice to talk to a person to let them know you’re here.
The Apple Store app is available in the US App Store but not in Canada at this time.
