What a downgrade Removed my favorite theaters and my favorite feature, showing what approx time a movie would let out. It helped massively in planning things out, and now it's gone! The look is so unstreamlined, whatever team put together the look of it needs to reevaluate their career choice. Threw in a feature called mPoints - I don't know why so many apps feel they need to use points, how many people really use them? It's much more of an annoying pop up you tap around than something you'd actually use. Time to app shop.
Disappointingly Creepy — Use Fandango Instead! ——— I downloaded this app to check listings of theaters near me. I expected something that was obvious how-to-use and got anything but. ——— I'm a fairly savvy user—as in, I use a rooted phone with custom software—so I really know what I'm doing with mobile devices. Took me several minutes to figure this app out. It turns out, you can't look at listings for a theater you haven't favourited. ——— And having every @#$% thing in the app called "My something-or-other" is just weird. I didn't want to favourite anything. I want to know what's playing near me. Just give me what I want without making me do any extra @#$% work. ——— Oh, and whatever idiot-creep thought an achievements system would be appropriate for an app like this, like you'd find in a freemium game, needs to be fired from everything. Forever. We users aren't stupid. MovieFone has to track our app usage to have an achievement system. That means at some level, MovieFone is collecting data about how I use the app, WHICH I DID NOT CONSENT.
They now force location service. NO! You took away the ability to tell app my location via zip code. Now I must allow the location service to see My Theaters! No! *I* am the boss, not you. Uninstalling. .....
Update blows Way more clicking required, and WHERE ARE THE REVIEWS?? Off to play store to search for another app :( EDIT: Just installed Fandango, which you appear to have copied shamelessly, only they have my reviews. BYE FELICIA!
Upgrade is horrible!! I have never rated ANY app before, but this upgrade is so horrible I felt it was my duty to warn others! Before the upgrade, Moviefone was the "go to" app for movies, theaters, times, tickets, etc. After the upgrade - completely useless! This upgrade is the biggest flop since Windows 8 was unveiled. Public service announcement: Don't waste your time getting this app! Moviefone head honcho's: do everyone a favor and go back to the original version before you lose more users!
Don't waste your time downloading this awful app. It used to be good, but now it's terrible. I used it all the time to see when DVD's would be released, but that is no longer an option. I will be deleting the app as soon as I am done writing this review.
