European film app means never missing a showtime again
Friday 28 May 2010
In the US, services providing film times like Moviefone, Fandango and Flixster provide apps for Blackberry, iPhone and Android phones. Now in Europe, the Kinepolis Group and Boondoggle have collaborated to offer an international mobile cinema application.
The Kinepolis app for the iPhone lets users search for cinema schedules and allows trailers to be played to help with the decision. This first version of the Kinepolis iPhone App offers much program information including newest titles, top ten movies, and upcoming films. A search tool also lists movies by title, cast, director, genre, and provides a synopsis.
Other features allow sharing favorite lists via Facebook and Twitter, and organizing a trip to the cinema with friends via email. Content remains accessible offline, so a user without a mobile plan can also benefit from the application.
The Belgium-based companies are the first to launch an iPhone App for cinemas in Europe. As of May 26, customers can download the first free version of the Kinepolis app from the iPhone App Store. http://itunes.com/app/kinepolis.
Updates are planned throughout the year including the possibility of purchasing tickets via the iPhone.
Flixster and Moviefone allows users to access movie showtimes, reviews and trailers for iPhones, as well as purchasing tickets.
