Fandango Announces iPhone App

Posted March 16, 2009 at 5:59pm by iClarified
Fandango has announced that its new iPhone and iPod touch application is available for free in the Apple App Store. The Fandango app enables fans to access movie and theater information 'on the go', buy tickets in seconds for more than 16,000 screens across the U.S. in seconds, watch trailers, view fan ratings and more.

"We are always seeking ways to make the moviegoing experience more convenient for fans,"
says Ted Hong, Fandango's chief marketing officer. "Each of the steps involved in making a great movie night - from choosing a film to finding a nearby theater to securing your tickets - can now be done quickly and easily from your iPhone or iPod touch without ever leaving the application or risking a sold out sign at the theater. That's the ultimate in convenience for moviegoers."

Movie fans can find their desired movie from a list of "In Theaters" or "Coming Soon", watch trailers, read synopses and view fan ratings. Additionally, fans can browse local theaters using the devices' location-based features, add theaters to a "favorites" list for faster searching, view showtimes and discover amenities such as Print at Home ticketing and stadium seating. Ticketing for more than 16,000 screens is available at the flick of a finger - simply select the desired date, time and ticket quantity - and guarantee tickets in seconds. For the ultimate in convenience, users have the ability to securely save their credit card for expedited purchasing.

At launch, movie fans will also be able to view an exclusive clip (available only on Fandango's app) from EARTH, the first motion picture from the new film label Disneynature. EARTH, narrated by JAMES EARL JONES, tells the remarkable story of three animal families and their amazing journeys across the planet we call home. EARTH opens on Earth Day, April 22, 2009.

The Fandango app is available for free from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.

will this app be any better than "Now Playing"? I'd still give Now Playing the edge because they have Rotten Tomatoes rankings...
