What's New in Version 5.3.1
In this update:
• We fixed some minor bugs
• We made some improvements in preparation for iOS 9
Frequent errors in identifying movies
Been using app for over a year, never yet seen it identify all current releases correctly. These aren't just excusable database errors such as showing the poster and cast/director/plot summary for the original version of something that has been remade--no, the more common error seems like something that could only come from English-as-second-language temps keying in IMDB searches while listening to heavily accented or bad-quality audio instructions reciting the titles they're to add to the app database. How else does Ken Loach's currently-playing "Jimmy's Hall" get confused with the 1938 Bette Davis vehicle "Jezebel"--or the current young-adult-themed indie pic "Paper Towns" get miscast as last year's heartwarming family film "Paper Planes"? The sentimental English period drama "Mr. Holmes" with Ian McKellan as the great detective was for a while characterized as a madcap comic tale of a girl and her alien friend (yep, the animated feature "Home") but the Showcase elves finally fixed that one. The app also goes overboard in trying to list all available movie venues. The totally useless result is that they then are never able to actually provide listings or showtimes for the vast majority of the libraries, museums, and colleges whose screenings are not integrated with the app database, plus they continue to list multiplexes that no longer exist--in some cases having been shut down for years.
This is the one,
You've tried Fandango and Moviefone and they blow. This one does it right. No stupid password screens, it remembers your location correctly, everything about the interface is simple, easy to use and intuitive. Steve Jobs would smile.
Wrong Movie times - unreliable. Use to be great
I have been using the apps for a couple of years, but lately it has given incorrect movie times causing me to arrive late to the movie or most recently the movie didn't even come out yet it had two showing listed. I am done with this app.
