Paperless travel with the iPad, for real

I received a tweet from Jared Earle today about how he travelled from Scotland to LA with only his passport and his iPad. He writes:

“Presenting an iPhone as a boarding card even after that was accepted as normal and I was allowed to pass through into the waiting area for my connection…Again, using the iPad to get onto the plane was simplicity itself and there was still enough battery life left in the iPad to keep me entertained the entire flight to LA. Arriving in LA, I was required to fill in an immigration form, which was the first piece of paper I’d needed to handle the entire trip.”

I also aim to travel without touching any paper, though I typically use my iPhone. If you like to do the same, go and read Jared’s post.
