What's New in Version 1.4
- Added Search function
Could be good, but it isn't.
This app seems to function as a basic list of cinemas and times but it barely attempts to arrange the information in a useful manner. It also has small annoyances that make me turn to google instead.
I want to watch a particular film tonight. I don't care if it's digital or not, but I really don't want to watch the 3D version. This app lists the three versions individually- essentially as different films. That's ok, but it means I have to look twice to see the times for what is essentially the same film.
Also, I am near several cinemas. Can I see times for more than 1 cinema quickly? No- I have to search individually, going back and forth through the long list menus.
When I go back to look at a different cinema or film does it take me back to where I was in the previous long menu? No. I have to go through the long list again.
TBH this app isn't bad... It just isn't good. The developers probably don't listen to the feedback otherwise these things could be EASILY fixed by now!
Favourite cinema(s) feature? I only go to a handful of cinemas on their list...
Scam & lousy service
Don waste your money on this App. Firstly the show times are mixed up at time. No consistency, Secondly they don have the ShowTimes of all the theaters they promised to have. Example ReX Cinema, Jade etc.... The App developer is based in Malaysia (Ironic of app named Singapore movies. The reply I got from them, for the exclusion of some cinemas and the mix-up of ShowTime’s was shocking. " They only include the ShowTime if they receive the fax???From Who?? Why No Fax??.. lame excuses.. I threatened to complain to apple twice and they immediately included the cinema's and were on the ball with the correct ShowTimes. After a week its back to same crappy service. Even with the paid version the data is not reliable, more than once, i reached the cinema, to find out this app mixed up the ShowTimes. What more can I say for the free version. There are many other free apps that are more reliable.
Only problem I have ever encountered is that you can't book movie tickets if you need Java to access the movie company's website, which is also not really a problem by the app itself. Easy to use app, highly recommended. Lucky it's still free!
