Fix Rotten Tomatoes
Please add the Rotten Tomatoes “Full Review” links back into the Flixster app. They are gone now for no apparent reason. This feature alone was one of the most useful and simple reasons I used the app and now it’s gone. After watching a movie or before preparing to watch a movie I would scroll through all of the Rotten Tomatoes “reviews” (or as many as I had time for), diving deeper into the reviews where the quote seemed to encapsulate my feelings about a movie if I had seen it or intrigued me if I had not. I checked the Fandango app, and the “Full Review” links are in there, but only for a few screens worth before the app forces you to the mobile website for Rotten Tomatoes, which is not nearly as efficient for scrolling through the reviews. Please, please, please fix the Rotten Tomatoes aspect of Flixster to how it was before, as it was the easiest way to see what movies were coming out, check reviews and find movie times. Now a significant part of the simplicity of the app is broken (seemingly in an effort to make the UX Design more minimalist), but its form over function and really frustrates me that is was taken away. For film lovers and movie buffs that loved the Flixster experience before, this is a significant step backward.
Very bad redesign!
The usability of this app just plummeted. You took a really-useful screen that was a list view of current movies out, capable of showing a dozen or more titles at a time, and changed it to a scrolling grid that can show 3 large images plus three more half-pictures on an iPhone 6s. The single comprehensive overview of a movie is gone, split into two tabs (so now instead of information about the movie and tomatomometer scores to help me make my decision, the initial view is ticketing - but since I haven’t made my decision yet, it’s now two taps to get to the same info). The Consensus seems to be gone entirely, and you now only show three reviews by default.
Overall, the app has dropped hard in usability. I’m sure, sitting around a conference room table, the still mock-ups of the new design made pretty pictures. But in terms of actually USING the app, it’s gone in a very bad direction.
Good design is functional as well as attractive. I was able to access and understand more information more quickly with the previous design. I’m not against change, but this new design is more fluff than useful. Very disappointed.
I initially wrote this as feedback after the update, but unfortunately that seems to have been a waste of time.
“You guys really dropped the ball here. What was wrong with the old app? For someone who watches tons of movies but rarely sees them in theaters the old app was perfect. Literally perfect. The layout was great for endless scrolling through box office movies and DVDs. Now I’ve got to navigate a Redbox rip-off menu which never loads, go into the movie, and close my eyes while clicking on the “details” option in order to avoid seeing movie times nobody cares about. If l wanted to buy movie tickets I’d use an app for that. Oh wait, that already exists. Guess how many times I’ve used it. Never. Not once! The least you could do it make “details” the default menu with “buy tickets” the clickable option. Please, at least change that. Please! Honestly, I'm not that mad. It’s more that I’m just completely flummoxed as to who thought this was a good idea. l can’t say I’m speechless, clearly, but it’s taken me the better part of the last 30 minutes trying to find words fitting for such a disaster.”
