What's New in Version 7.4
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Love it but why is it constantly refreshing???
I use this to looking up movie times and reviews. It's very utilitarian for that and I appreciate it's fairly easy to use interface.
Where it goes wrong is it is constantly refreshing and reloading data. It never seems to cache anything. If i switch to txt someone and come back to the app which had perfectly valid information already loaded it now has to refresh. If I have a crap internet connection, the stupid thing clears the whole screen, then if I'm lucky the info comes up. Why can't it simply cache the data and only refresh once it gets the new data in? Use standard refresh mechanisms that other apps use like chrome and newspaper apps where if i pull down at the top, then it refreshes?
Also I'm fine with the adds, I understand free is not free but please pre-load the add size when drawing the page. The app is very jumpy as it loads the movie data first and then jumps around when the add loads. So I'm about to tap on a movie and end up tapping on the wrong thing when the article loads and the whole page jumps down 200 pixels.
I still recommend the app to most people just it could use some polishing.
Surprisingly useful little app!
I have been using this app since re discovering it recently. I like that i can look up any movie and get reviews and rt ratings but it has also benefits. namely It sorts on netflix streaming movies too. This has opened up a list of undiscovered gems waiting for me to binge watch on my next business travel. Speaking of lists It has a very useful feature for creating a I want to watch list of movies. It also sorts by actors to view articles such as10 best movies starring Jeff Bridges (as an example). It also includes video trailers and extras for many movies even old ones. Great search capabilities for everything movie related. My new go to app for movies!
UPDATE! Takes way too long to load, incessant pop-ups!
The ads aren't popping up in every five seconds anymore, so that's a plus. However, it does still take quite awhile to refresh itself from the last time I opened the app.
Wow, this app is pretty much unusable now. No joke, there are pop-ups every 5-10 seconds. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and it still has these issues. I'm not installing this app again.
Updated score takes WAY too long to load. Often times, I'll run the app, then an ad will pop up. After closing out of the ad, the rotten tomatoes score often times still hasn't updated, and usually won't do so until I click on the movie, scroll to the bottom, then scroll back up and exit out to the home screen of the app.
Also, no exaggeration, I'll get pop-ups that load up the App Store every time I click anywhere on the screen. It's really annoying to continually have the App Store pop up, and to have to click out of the App Store and reload flixster every time.
