New App to purchase train tickets

Can you purchase Shinkansen or Nozomi train tickets as well as a Suica card using the new app that was released?

If so once you purchase the tickets through the app can you pick up the actual tickets at the visitors service center at Narita Airport?

SUICA can only be "purchased" (added to your electronic wallet) online using Apple Pay with iPhone 8 or later, or iPhone 7 (Japan Edition)

>> can you pick up the actual tickets at the visitors service center at Narita Airport?

"You can use the credit card that you paid with to collect your tickets easily and quickly at ticket machines in Tokaido Sanyo Shinkansen stations"

Narita AIrport is not a Tokaido Sanyo Shinkansen station.

All cards are basically equivalent. The only real difference is that Icoca works on some local transport in Hiroshima, while Suica/Pasmo doesn't, but this doesn't concern you.
