What's New in Version 5.20
Redbox knows, they just don't care
It is not an accident that this Redbox app is only offering Always On or Off as location services options. Any company the size of Redbox makes this decision to leave out the "Only while using app" option. So the question is why?
There are two most likely answers: Either they are 1) looking to eventually mine/monetize the location data of their users (presumably to improve services, but also quite tangibly increasing their valuation as a company), or 2) their developers and product team are incredibly inept and overpaid to have not foreseen this backlash against their terrible UX.
In either case, they don't deserve my (or your) business until they stop pretending users are that gullible. Without more thoughtful development of their mobile product, they will dissolve as an entity much quicker than they are already projecting, and if that happens I can't say they didn't bring it on themselves.
Terribly written - Flawed - Annoying
There's no option to have location services on only "When Using the App." The only options are "Always" and "Never." "Always" burns up the battery and, besides, what makes them think they have the right to track people all the time? In addition the search feature has a bug where, instead of returning a result of "Cannot Find," the search wheel just spins and spins forever as if the app isn't functioning. Incredibly annoying. I've stopped using the app and, if they don't fix these problems, will stop using Redbox altogether.
Thanks for nothing.!
As much money as I give you guys when renting movies and you make an update that my iPhone can longer use. Plus you want us to leave our location on at all times .? It's none of your business what my location is U mess im looking for a kiosk near me.! I even tried to download the old version but now I can't use red box app at all because I won't update my phone to 9.0 or higher.! Too many bugs and issues with all these updates . They crash my phone everytime and I lose everything.! So thanks for NOTHING.!
