Much Needed Update You can press "Book By Date" and it will show all movies showing for that day, with all the times. Or you can press "Book By Time Today" and it will display a long list of movies in chronological order based on time. A nice feature if maybe you had 2/3 hours free and wanted to go see whatever was showing next. I'm about to add my unlimited card to the new app. If the app remembers the details the next time I use it, I'll give it 5 stars. If the app forgets, then I'll update and give it 1.
Unnecessary update. It's made planning my cinema trips a little harder. For the average cinema goer I can maybe see the point but for me personally, who sees on average 2 films a week, the old app was better. All times of showings and run times were easily found. Now if I want to see 2 films in a single day I have to launch into the form of some kinda screen tapping super sleuth. Still useable n better than booking at the cinema but old app was much easier for me personally.
Whilst finally being able to see if a 3D showing is going to be plain 3D, 4D or IMAX is nice, it wont let me connect my "unlimited card account" to my "mycineworld account". As if they are two separate things? When i follow the steps (that all redirect to the website, what is the point?) I get nothing but errors and a telephone number. I am not paying to call you. Make your technology work if you actually want to stay in business.
After reading the reviews I was very dubious about deleting my old app and downloading this updated version. Must say that I've had no issues with it. It's easy to navigate and I'm able to book films easily for my saved favorite cinema and others. Once I logged in it also had mine & my family's cineworld card details saved already as they were on the old app.
Old app was fine, why change it? It listed all the current films and their times for the cinema you wanted. Nice and simple. All I want from an app. New app tries to be clever by adding more features and changing the terminology. In doing so, forgets the feature that people actually use it for- a user friendly, clear, fully open schedule of what is on Now. You can still see a schedule for the cinema you want but it is not obvious how to get to it (trial and error required) and you have to 'open' each movie to see the times it is on. Just want an accurate timetable please. No faffing. Really disappointed in the update. Going to stick to google or go to a different cinema which has a user friendly app.
Great a brand new cineworld app I thought. They surely finally will have fixed the coming soon films list issue. Goes to check. Nope! I was wrong. I want to ****ING see the films that are coming soon. Not in 6 months, not in 8 months, but soon like one month away. I check the list and see a film for 5 months then further down the list a movie out in 3 weeks. How does that make any ****ing sense! How is the coming soon list in any way useful. Give me the films coming soon in date order, with next week films first then this months films next then the rest. The only way it can have 1 star is this app finally remembers your login.
Minor bug fixes to improve stability.
