Some Amazing iPhone Apps for Movie Lovers
Are you a movie buff? If you are, and you have an iPhone, you could get your daily dose of trivia, information, content, and games related to movies, all on the go. There are tons of iPhone apps out there which cater to movie buffs and home theater lovers. But not all of them are good. It takes a little digging around to find the best ones out there. Your job has been made easier with this list of the very best when it comes to iPhone apps for movie lovers.
This is one of the very best, sponsored by the now popular RottenTomatoes. It gives you plenty of information on the latest movies and DVDs that have come out, shows timings of movies in different theatres, and a whole lot more. It has the trusted rating system of RottenTomatoes which lets you decide on the movies to watch and the movies to leave alone. It’s integrated with NetFlix data too, and the best part of all: it is absolutely free.
It is the most trusted source of information online for movies and all the related stuff. And the same data now comes in this quality iPhone app by the same name. Much like its online avatar, it has exhaustive information when it comes to movies: showtimes, trailers, photos, must-see lists, even celebrity info. To put it succinctly, it is absolute bliss for entertainment and movie lovers.
For buying tickets on the go, this is the best app to have on your iPhone. Movies Now uses the data of MovieTickets.com and even lets you use your membership card for discounts. However, if you need buy tickets for one of the several Regal Cinemas Theatres around you, Fandango is what will help you out. You don’t need to fret about downloading two similar apps, since both of them are free.
Movie buffs will absolutely adore this app. It is a free app that gives you easy access to latest trailers of Sony Pictures, movie info, showtimes, release dates, and a lot more. It even lets you see the latest movies that are available in iTunes, and can be downloaded for you to watch from the palm of your hand or the comfort of your home theater.
This is for movie lovers who love to stay organized as well. Actually, when you have hundreds of DVDs with you, it is always better to stay organized, which is where this app comes in handy. It lets you scan the barcodes on your DVD, and the app does the rest for you. It uploads vital pieces of information to your iPhone or iPad, thus helping you organize your movie collection. It even has a sync feature which really comes in handy.
If you like a bit of fun and don’t mind a tough trivia question bogging your head all day long, 6DOH (Six Degrees ofHollywood) is for you. It is a trivia game which asks to connect different stars together. The most difficult level is six degrees of relation between two stars. Do you know how Cameron Diaz and Chris Rock are related? Keep racking your brains on that one.
If you are one of those who pull their hair over the bad interface of Netflix, CineTap could come to your rescue. It has an intuitive Netflix interface which lets you search movies in an instant, and even lets you rate them without a glitch. You will hail this app for sure.
