  • Movies.app Major Update - Netflix, Integrated Ticketing, Buy/Rent from iTunes.. more!


    Movies.app (by Flixster), my favorite app for checking showtimes, reviews, etc, just got way better. It's 3.0 update pushed to the AppStore Wednesday, and includes a crapload of useful updates, including Netflix integration and the ability to purchase movie tickets straight from the app and pick up at your local theater now.

    You can also buy/rent movies from iTunes from the app now.

    Here's the full list of updates:
    • Netflix Support Add movies to your queue, view & manage your queue, including delete and reorder. Both DVD and instant queues are supported.
    • Integrated movie ticketing Purchase tickets directly from your device and pick up the tickets at the theater
    • Want to See List Login with your Facebook or Flixster account to be able to rate movies, including creating a Want to See list
    • Yelp Integration Easily find restaurants near theaters and read reviews with the Yelp app on your device
    • iTunes Movie Store Integration Buy or rent movies from iTunes right on your device
    • Improved Social Features The social networking features of the app are much easier to use. You can now view 5x more movies in your Want to See or Rated lists.
    • Flixster Account Login Connect with your Facebook account, or if you would prefer, you can now login with your Flixster account
    • Built-in Maps View maps of all theaters playing a particular movie in your area
    • An overall refreshed user interface that makes the app even better

    Thanks to Jeff Grossman, 'Movies' for iPhone Developer for the tip!

      Kool app, I can see my Netflix account and choose movies and the best of all I can buy my tickets for the theater from my iphone while I'm on my way. It uses your location to show you all the teathers near to you. Great app

      Yeah..... cool app, but not to hip on the convenience charge to use the app. Still will probably buy my tickets at the box office instead of paying them a buck, since I have to go there to watch the movie anyways.

      This has been my main movie application for quite a while now and the update is excellent! I'm now questioning if I still need iPhlix...

      Maybe you can tell me how then? I can't figure out how to buy tickets through this app.

      edit: Nevermind. Now I see the option. It's only available on select theaters. In Austin, only 3 of the 17 theaters offer to let you buy through this app, and none of them are major theaters.
