Amazing chrisitan guide to movies


the people have been criticizing movie guide for being boring and being a repackaged version of the app store ita just a app where they tell about when movies are good or bad for christians and i belive that non religious people are rating this a 1 star for not beliving what they say, its because there not religious that means they dont know if its offensing christians or not and this is a family guide so thats why the violent movies are like a 2 or 1 out of 4 because its not family friendly but some violent movies are 4 stars for being entertaining and having good storyline i think this is a great app for letting families know what movies are good and wrong

Love the content, but this app violates Apple developer guidelines


Love the Movieguide content, but it sadly violates Apple App Store developer guidelines. It is a repackaged version of the website and contains little to no app features, no native user interface (as it used to), and is simply not a useful app like it used to be. It's as if nobody at Movieguide actually uses the app on a daily basis to search for movies, navigate content, get alerts about the latest reviews. There isn't any watchlist functionality. The navigation is broken and you can't get back to the main home screen after looking at a review.

From section 4.2 of the developer guidelines:

"Your app should include features, content, and UI that elevate it beyond a repackaged website. If your app is not particularly useful, unique, or “app-like,” it doesn’t belong on the App Store."

Please devote more resources toward making a real native Movieguide app.



It's their website wrapped poorly in an app. Come on, don't be lazy. If you're going to build an app, build a good one. This is simply a "look, me too" presence in the App Store. Unfortunately, the producers of this content are missing out on many integrations into iOS that would have significantly enhanced the application and its presence in the iOS ecosystem.
