Flixster Updates iPhone Movies App27 Aug, 2009 By: John Latchem
Flixster has launched Movies 3.0, the latest version of its popular iPhone app. The newest update lets users buy tickets via Movietickets.com, download from iTunes, manage Netflix rental queues, access local restaurant listings and more. Flixster reported the app gained its 6 millionth user recently, and usage of the app grew 83% between January and June 2009. The Movies app has an estimated 20% market share of all U.S. iPhone users.
The popularity spurred Flixster to offer movie apps for the Palm Pre, Blackberry and Android-based devices.
Movies 3.0 is available for free at the iPhone App Store. Enhancements to additional mobile apps from Flixster are in development.
Launched in January 2006, Flixster.com offers users access to more than 1.9 billion user movie ratings and more than 19,000 movie trailers, plus quizzes, games, photos and details about more than 75,000 movies.
