Improvements Needed to Increase Rating
In my opinion this app should be considered as a limited value app in its current form. So many improvements could be made to make this app useful. A few of my suggestions follow:
*List all Hallmark movies from both channels on one page making it easier for people to find the movies they wish to view.
*List all dates/times new holiday movies will air, especially when running premieres on both Hallmark channels in similar time slots.
*I would ask that consideration be given to adding a complete listing of all holiday movies to air so that people, such as myself who enjoy watching some of the previous movies, can be aware of their dates/times.
*An ability to sort movies by channel (Hallmark Channel & Hallmark Mysteries), date, movie title, or actor making it easier to find movie air times.
As a side note to the Hallmark Channel itself, I see very little value to running a movie premiere on one channel at 8PM EST and a premiere on the second channel at 9PM EST on the other on the same day. Obviously many people would like to see both movies but must make a choice. Just as you stagger the start times, why not stagger the days when premieres are shown on the two channels thus getting more viewers on more nights thus increasing the marketing revenue.
Thank you in advance for considering these updates.
Cool start, hope it keeps evolving!
It’s fun to check off the movies so I think this is a great start. I think it’d be cool to have the ability to connect with friends to share your “scores” on watching the movies so far.
Like other reviewers have said, it’d be great if we could see all the movies together with the option of dividing by channel. Plus I’d love to see previous movies listed too. (And will this continue after Christmas?)
A technical complaint: When you go to a movie’s page and then return to the channel homepage, it bumps the page back up to the top rather than keeping your plane. So you have to scroll back down every time you look at a movie’s page. Kind of inconvenient.

I didn’t realize how many movies come out every year & this app helps you keep track. I like that the app gives you the date & time that a movie is on and then after it initially airs it lets you know the next time it is scheduled. Other reviewers have expressed that they wish the app included all Hallmark movies so I suggest that going forward, the app let you keep track of the movies by production year. Another suggestion I have is that app include a way for us to rate the movies, not just check off that it has been watched. This could even be helpful to Hallmark to see which movies people enjoyed the most.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
