Conclusion

Didn’t think much of the upgrade that was pushed to my Android device the other day (happened to be staying at a Hyatt property at the time).

Tried to use the mobile key for the first time as I had forgotten the real one in the suite. It didn’t work. The Hyatt’s mobile app (and website too) has less functionality than those of IHG, Marriott or even Hilton because it doesn’t have loopback from the property, as you won’t see your upgraded room/suite type (the main function for me of any of these apps).

Nice that Hyatt is offering some bonus points this early fall. Very unfortunate that this offer is not available for business travelers that usually must book using corporate resources.
