Not all movies are just on the small screen, and not all apps are dedicated to streaming or local playback. Cinephiles will find a steadfast friend in Flixster, an app whose entire existence revolves around getting you to the movie theater.
Flixster takes care of the basics, of course: After you allow the app to access your location, it offers a list of nearby cinemas, along with the movies those theaters are playing and their showtimes. Beyond that, Flixster provides a synopsis, a cast listing, HD trailers, review blurbs, and yes, even ratings from Rotten Tomatoes for each and every individual title. Flixster is a veritable cornucopia of cinematic information—it’s just too bad the app doesn’t divulge turn-by-turn directions to the theaters you select.
Oh, and as for streaming: Flixster lets you watch your UltraViolet-stored flicks from the cloud, too.
