Movies app is a must-have for film lovers

by Kate Currin

The Movies app for Android is a movie lover's best friend. No matter where you are, use this app to find the closest movie theater and show times. Search by GPS, by name, or view all theaters on a map. Star your favorite theaters for easy access later.

Use the upcoming tab to access the latest film releases or the DVD tab to view the latest releases for home viewing. The app has more than 15,000 movie trailers to watch and 65,000 DVDs to peruse for possible rental via Netflix. And, log into your Netflix account to sync and manage your movie queue right from this app.

Click on a movie selection to view reviews, play trailers, get general movie info, and even add your own rating. Entering your own rating of a movie is beneficial when you log into your Facebook account using the movie app. This function allows your Facebook friends to see your ratings, and, in return, you can see their ratings. You also can save a list of movies you want to see.

This marvelous movie app has a lot of function for the price tag of free. The only thing it's missing is the popcorn.
