What's New in Version 2.6.6
Brand New Showcase Cinema App!
Glitchy, Does not work
Terrible. Not only is this not compatible with iOS 9 (or 8) there are so many parts of the app that clearly haven't gone through QA - like when searching by film, it asks you for a postcode and won't allow any other response meaning that function is useless unless your film happens to be called XX1 1XX. When you then search by cinema (as the film search doesn't work), you find your cinema, pick your day - but then can't scroll through the film times as the scroll doesn't work! The whole reason I downloaded this app was to check film times in my local showcase cinema and then book tickets - the app allows you to do neither. Off to Odeon for me....
Bye bye showcase
Even more irritating than the ability to choose seats being removed from the showcase online booking system, which is a clumsy and annoying way of forcing previously loyal customers into using a second rate app, is the fact that, having booked tickets on my ipad, I can't access these tickets via the app on my smartphone, so I either have to carry my ipad to the cinema, or print the tickets as normal, rendering the barcode scan option useless. This arrogant, ham fisted attempt to force customers to use the app has only resulted in this customer deciding never to use showcase again. I'm sure Vue will be happy to take my business.
It is clear that whoever developed this just didn't test it on the devices it would be used on. You can't purchase anything because the screen won't scroll down to click pay. You can't search anything using postcode however there is a work around on town. This is such a poor app for iOS it's an embarrassment for the company. They should be asking for their money back. If you are going to issue an app just ensure it works. Or ensure your website can book tickets in the same way. Really poor reflection on the company
