Very bad redesign!
The usability of this app just plummeted. You took a really-useful screen that was a list view of current movies out, capable of showing a dozen or more titles at a time, and changed it to a scrolling grid that can show 3 large images plus three more half-pictures on an iPhone 6s. The single comprehensive overview of a movie is gone, split into two tabs (so now instead of information about the movie and tomatomometer scores to help me make my decision, the initial view is ticketing - but since I haven’t made my decision yet, it’s now two taps to get to the same info). The Consensus seems to be gone entirely, and you now only show three reviews by default.
Overall, the app has dropped hard in usability. I’m sure, sitting around a conference room table, the still mock-ups of the new design made pretty pictures. But in terms of actually USING the app, it’s gone in a very bad direction.
Good design is functional as well as attractive. I was able to access and understand more information more quickly with the previous design. I’m not against change, but this new design is more fluff than useful. Very disappointed.
I initially wrote this as feedback after the update, but unfortunately that seems to have been a waste of time.
“You guys really dropped the ball here. What was wrong with the old app? For someone who watches tons of movies but rarely sees them in theaters the old app was perfect. Literally perfect. The layout was great for endless scrolling through box office movies and DVDs. Now I’ve got to navigate a Redbox rip-off menu which never loads, go into the movie, and close my eyes while clicking on the “details” option in order to avoid seeing movie times nobody cares about. If l wanted to buy movie tickets I’d use an app for that. Oh wait, that already exists. Guess how many times I’ve used it. Never. Not once! The least you could do it make “details” the default menu with “buy tickets” the clickable option. Please, at least change that. Please! Honestly, I'm not that mad. It’s more that I’m just completely flummoxed as to who thought this was a good idea. l can’t say I’m speechless, clearly, but it’s taken me the better part of the last 30 minutes trying to find words fitting for such a disaster.”
Shame on you Flixster...
I’m not a big fan of the new layout. Much like the App Store’s latest update, it seems harder to get after the information you want to see. For me, I use this app for one purpose, and one purpose only: to see critic and audience ratings of movies. This app now prioritizes movie ticket purchases and movie theatre options above film ratings - you have to click on movie details (a separate step) to see the movie reviews.
Removed all remaining stars because they deleted all movie ratings I’d been updating for the last 4 years. I will make it a point to not purchase movie tickets through fandango now for this reason alone.
The actor/actress, director, film producer backgrounds are more shallow now. Used to have filmography listed by year.
It used to be easy to watch a movie preview for any movie by just searching the movie and clicking play on the image. Now previews are buried under images, and are not available for many films hat once had them. I find myself YouTubing movie previews now. I’m within an inch of deleting this thing after having it on my phone for 5 years. It’s easier to find information by googling movies through a browser than using this app.
It’s become difficult to search for movies. Titanic - despite being one of the highest grossing movies of all time - doesn’t appear as a top result. The animated feature “Leap” isn’t listed under its actual name, you have to search “Ballerina” to find it (?!?!?)
