- Bug fixes
Location services ALWAYS on
The app would be better if redbox would actually give you the option to have location services only while app is in use however it only gives you the option of ALWAYS on or never. If you select never well it's inconvenient and won't let you select the box closest to your location. If it were to change the option to have location while in use. I would give it 4 starts. I don't appreciate my battery used up or who knows maybe it's tracking me everywhere I go. So I just turn it off.
Can reserve & pay before goto redbox
Have to go in iPhone privacy settings and block GPS as it stays on when not in app (drains battery). Wish it had use GPS only when using app. App allows you to find movie & pay for it. Then just drive up to box and hit the pick up reserved movie and that's it. No clogging up the screen browsing at the store. Wish everyone would use this app to speed up the line. Wish they had iPad version. Sad that big companies can't port app to iPad screen.
Now usable, but why run in background?
Redbox provides good value, but Redbox app began as unusable. It has made good progress, so I am giving 3 stars. Here is a big problem and a big wish:
- The app runs and uses location service in the background. Who wants Redbox in the background? It just wastes battery.
- The app could be a lot more useful if it gathers viewer reviews from e.g., Rotten Tomatoes and MVDB; just an aggregate will go a long way, a link would be nicer.
