Web browser is better than this downgraded app
This used to be an excellent app but now is awful. This may be the worst I've ever seen an app slide as far as overall user experience. It's been re-worked and now appears to be a bad rendering of the moviefone webpage with less convenient operation the the site itself. Navigation seems to be nonexistent. I haven't found a way to move back through searches when I'm done with one. When you try to search for a second movie, you have to tap the search button, wait for a refresh, tap the search field, then wait await while the screen refreshes to a different search page, and the type and wait for the app to catch up. If you tap again instead of type, it will start flashing and navigating between the two search field pages. Often it will just keep toggling between pages on its own and won't let you search. After you search, it takes time to bring you your results. There's a lot of clutter on the screen, so good luck if you accidentally tap another button. There's no back - remember - so you have to tap the search button again and go through that mess. What a horrible design change they made with this app.
Needs A Major Update
I loved the app the way it was before but now there are so many glitches and bugs. Even just clicking on a movie showed nothing but the picture no trailer or release date what the movies about or even showing of who's going to be in it. And a lot of the main headline does not change like it did with the old one. I would like it a lot if it could go back to the way it was or at least fix these bugs so the app can be enjoyed a lot more than it is now. And even when I go under coming soon sometimes the whole app just clicks out and one time rarely under coming soon it just showed three movies listed. Please make this app better than ever or put it back to the way it was. I do like some changes on the app but a lot of it just has too many different bugs and needs to be improved.
An app saddled with so much "improvement" it is no longer useful.
Search for the closest theaters! Just click past a full-page pop-up a few times and re-enter your search parameters...
Find the next show time! Just click past a full page pop-up or two and then through a more-than-awkward scroll which shows two theaters at a time.....and then be forced to use the scroll function again because it is so awkward you need a stylus to maintain your search
Put down what you are doing!....since the screen is so jam packed with crap one handed operation isn't possible...
Moviefone--either stop getting your app designers to cram it all on your app., or--fire your app designers who tried to cram it all on one app. The full page popups absolutely bite.
