Please update

I'm a huge Gene Shalit fan and glad there's an app on his reviews, but it's slow and uses up a lot of battery. It needs to be updated to process with Apple's current iOS system.

It's so fantastic to have Gene's funny and inciteful reviews available when deciding what movies to rent.
