If it ain't broke...
Maybe it was "bring your kids to work" day and someone let little Tyler or Sinead redesign the app "for a laugh" - but the joke's over now and we need our old, useable app back.
It's really only a basic concept at the least. You go to the app to see what's on at the local cinema and what showing time suits you best (or have you got enough time to catch the film, before the trailers finish).
Now thanks to this update, one would risk missing all showings whilst trying to navigate though something about as user friendly as an advanced coding assignment. There are no pictures to refresh your memory of "that film we saw advertised but can't remember the name of". There's no location service so you have to scroll through the whole of the U.K. or faff about entering post codes. And worst of all you can't see show times of films without navigating to each one separately.
All of the rather obvious conveniences of a mobile app that were present before have sadly been dropped. If it's not fixed soon, I see no reason to continue to even have the app as it would be quicker and less frustrating for me to physically drive to the theatre to see what's on.
The new update has many nice options such as back and forward arrows, knowing the releasing day of new movies and the best option ( for me), Refine film list under select film to book. The only thing I thong many people missed is the pictures of each movie at the first page, although it is the next page, but some times poor internet takes more time to go to next page. Thus the first impression would be without movies picture.
The new app is trying to be all new fangled and fancy, but it isn't very good at it.
You can't log in with Facebook - even though it gives that option. And when you try logging in the old way, it doesn't load.
I can't just click on my nearest locations and find a time to suit.
I have to search for a location and look at each films times individually *rolls eyes*
I plan a visit to Vue based on our days plans, not the other way around. I want to see what film is on at a certain time in the particular area we are, not filter through individual films to see if one is on at that time where we are.
The app has went from easy and quick to use to hard and time consuming. My 8 year old use to use the app to pick films and now she can't as its too tricky to navigate.
The prices at Vue have skyrocketed and now I can't even see what's on at a particular time, so what's the point?
Time for a new cinema I think.
