The official Fandango app has always been my personal favorite for checking movie showtimes, trailers, and reviews. Its recent v1.7 update makes the app even better.
In addition to performance enhancements and bug fixes, Fandango’s v1.7 update brings Retina display support for the new iPad and a new, easy way to view your theater’s amenities.
If you haven’t used Fandango before, it’s a great app for checking out the latest movies and also has some nice location-based features. You can search for movies that are both in theaters and coming soon, then view any trailers, reviews, screenshots, and interviews tied to them. When you’re ready to head to the movies, you can search movie showtimes at the theaters around you (up to a 250 mile search radius) and can even add theaters to a favorites list to quickly see showtimes there in the future.
With Fandango, you can even purchase tickets from all AMC Theaters locations, as well as thousands of other theaters, right from the app. You can email movie, showtime, ticket, and theater information to a friend to avoid any confusion on movie night. If you’re a serious movie fanatic, you can sign into Fandango via Facebook to rate and review movies for other Fandango users to see.
If you like going to the movies, or just want to make the experience easier, Fandango Movies – Times & Tickets is available for free in the App Store.
