Mobile passport only helps you for the first part.
There’s still customs, where the fast lane is only for GE

are you sure?

I think mobile passport doesn't just skip the kiosk for regular folks but also gets to see an officer much quicker in a special line that just the officer just glances at the phone like with the GE slip. ?

In Newark there was a seperate line only for GE. Everyone else goes in the other line

Is it a yes or a no?
 I thought yes but if a confirmed report of no, not going to argue.
Confirmed no
I thought you would be able to edit or delete the form on the app, but I guess not.
You cannot delete the form once submitted. You can have it filled out though and only decide which line to go in once you see the situation. I would recommend doing this and leaving your options opened until the last second.

Fill out the form via MP and then go onto the GE line and show the customs both, im sure it will work, they all have scanners.

Disagree, you still have to wait online with mobile passport, almost never any lines for GE.
I disagree, I have never waited on mobile passport lines. I have used the line at least 20 times in the last 2 years.
I actually have seen people waiting at global entry.

I use Mobile Passport since my wife and daughter don't have GE. They always get pre-check when we fly togther, so I don't see it being worth it to pay or waste time at an interview.

When mine expires, I'll look into whether renewing is easy or whether pre-check makes more sense.

Just got through the GE line. The guy checking receipts doesn’t have a scanner.

2 Ways to look at it.
 Either spend 5 min at the kiosk or spend 5 minutes on the plane while your on the tarmac and fill in all the info.
 Or if your really a frequent flyer, it's up to you to which method your going to use to enter. GE or MP(& pay the $15 for the convenience.)

Will MP let you load up a bunch of people for the same price? The reason that I use MP is that only I have GE, which usually gets my wife & daughter pre-check as well. However, for GE, everyone needs to use it.

Smart move. Or why can't you sideload it via an apk file to get an older version?
