Yo, is that an iPhone in your pocket or are you just excited for Valentine's Day?

Hopefully the answer is "iPhone" (or both), because that means you can download or update the JetBlue mobile app, which now FINALLY supports beautiful, beautiful mobile boarding passes and adds some other goodies.

Here's what you'll be getting with that update, now available (and free to download):
· Airport terminal maps
· Direct TV programming schedules
· Flight timetables
·' Updated destination city guides
· New graphics in the virtual postcards and more downloadable iPhone wallpaper
· The ability to book flights within the app using TrueBlue points
· Mobile boarding passes!!!!!!

Sorry, Android-ers. You guys still have a to wait a bit for your app update, but rest assured that it's a-comin'. Don't be too bummed, however, as the mobile boarding passes are so far only available for flights departing these airports:

· Boston (BOS)
· Fort Lauderdale (FLL)
· Las Vegas (LAS)
· Los Angeles (LGB)
· New York (JFK)
· Orlando (MCO)
· San Francisco (SFO)
· San Juan (SJU)

Still a little wary of mobile boarding passes? Don't be, but here's the technical details straight from the official press release:

Each paperless boarding pass is displayed as an encrypted two-dimensional barcode along with customer and flight information that TSA security officers can scan to validate the authenticity of the boarding pass at the checkpoint. Customers can present the same digital pass at the gate for streamlined boarding. Those who purchase Even More Speed, the airline’s expedited security offering, will see that reflected prominently on their mobile device to fly through security at the airport.

Last one to the gate buys the Dunkin Donuts!
