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. .....
So sad!!!! This was one of my favorite apps and you ruined it. It got rid of my favorite theaters (forcing me to re-due them) and it won't let me sign in. The app used to be cool now it looks like a 5 year old programmed it. Hope you fixed it or I see a lot of uninstalls in your future, starting with me.
What the heck This was a great app that I used all the time now it's really hard to use and doesn't tell me what theatres are close. You ruined a perfectly good app that I have been using for years
Why downgrade? I have used this app for years and loved it. I don't know why they had to "improve" it, cause all they did was downgrade it. Now it's so generic and clumsy to use. Hate it.
