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
