This is exactly what I've been looking for - an App for going to the movies! I can very much see myself becoming one active user of this application, despite the fact that not many of my friends in the social circle are as passionate about movie going - [and sharing their experiences] - as I am, so let's see if it's gonna be applicable in my case since the App is meant for a social experience, not the solo indulgence.
I've already mentioned before the many platforms where one can watch TV/films online, all of which - free sources. There's also YouTube and Hulu sharing, Facebook and MySpace, and a bit of Twitter, but only in the 'link sharing' capability. There are many social ways to watch movies on- and offline, which, despite the fact that most of the people are becoming more 'mobile' and social/digital media savvy, still comes down to picking up a phone to SMS and/or call a friend to invite him/her over for a movie night at home and/or to a movie theatre.
Yes, there are many movie 'sharing' experiences in the form of forums, blogs and online reviews - you can review a movie and click on a 'Share' button to send it to your friends via Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, etc...Or you can just post a note in the social network about your experience seeing a movie. In other words - many, many ways to share your movie going experience - (and I do it too, via my movie blog here.)
So, you can imagine my joy - [and the overall joy of learning about a new cool App, which I very often browse through on a Saturday morning, lazily laying in bed...] - of learning about a new App. Thanks to All Things Digital, which I'm a huge, huge fan of! [Walter Mossberg is one of the tech-savvy journalists that I respect very much, and respect the fact that he's been rather responsive to my tech and media clients' ideas and projects, always responding for comments, interviews and product reviews. His expertise is amazingly thorough and front-running.]
Here's the deal about the new App:
