What's New in Version 7.13.4
Without question, one of my top 5 apps
For many many years this has been my go to movie app. It always works, no errors ever, 100% reliable. I use it before going to a movie theater to see up-to-the-minute USER ratings (sorry, critics rate movies like they're grading English papers). I use it to see which movies are playing where. I use it on trips all over the country to quickly see which movie theater is the closest no matter where I am and to see what's playing. I use it while choosing on demand movies at home. I use it at the video store. I use it standing in front of red box. I use it at the library checking out movies. I use it at the store and online before purchasing a movie. Everytime I see a movie trailer or hear of a great movie I quick pull up the app and add it to my 'want to see' list so I can refer to it later instead of trying to remember which movie I wanted to see. I've had this app so many years I can't remember not having it. It's always there, has everything I need and it's custom fit to me, all mine. Keep up the good work Flixster!!
Value is Diminishing
Used to be an awesome, easy way to find a select a movie to attend along with a time and theater. Over time it seems some mainstream popular current movies don't even appear in the Box office. You have to go to the theater and see all the listings for that theater to ensure you are looking at everything that is out for viewing.
The latest is checking movie times. I now have to select purchase Fandango Tickets to see movie times. I have absolutely no interest in paying a middle man for my movie tickets so I want to go back to when the movie times were simply listed with the movie or I click on "Find Movie Times." Even if the functionality behind that is the same, I don't want the high pressure sales job by Fandango.
A great resource for any film junkie who enjoys expert film reviews. From short to the point reviews to thorough, knowledgable commentary I enjoy reading the vast array of opinions and observations that this app has on offer. It also provides movie trailers which I enjoy and find convenient in-app here.
One criticism, the app basically sends you to the web pages where these reviews are posted. There are pros and cons to this. Pros: it probably keeps the app free in one way or another because of advertising, and it's the advertising that can be annoying. As a con: there isn't a reader option unlike if I went to these websites through safari. It would be nice to at least have the 'reader' option so I could read the reviews minus the advertising which I find distracting.
However the benefit to being linked to full web pages is that because of the advertising and links sometimes I find additional interesting stuff so it's not all bad. I would just recommend implementing a 'reader' option in some future update.
