Back in March, Marriott Hotels announced that it plans to accept Apple Pay as a payment form at many of its properties this summer, and today the hotel chain has updated its Marriott International app for iPhone to include Apple Watch support.

Marriott’s Apple Watch app lets your check-in at the front desk with your reservation conveniently located on your wrist, catch notifications on your watch for when your room is ready, check out from the app when you’re trip wraps up, or just find the nearest Marriott property if you need a place to stay. Marriott’s Apple Watch app also includes a Glance for referencing your Marriott Rewards information and your next reservation from a swipe on the watch face. Marriott’s Apple Watch app is out now.
If you’re watching your expenses on your trip or any other time, PayPal has added a faster way to securely log in to its iPhone app. While it still doesn’t support native resolutions on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus displays, PayPal has added support for unlocking the app with Touch ID on the iPhone 5s and later.
Turning on Touch ID as a log in option requires first signing in with your PayPal email and password, then setting up a PIN in the app’s Login setting and toggling on Touch ID. PayPal’s update with Touch ID is available for free on the App Store.
