Moviegoer's mecca

Although the app is practically useless without a data connection, as long as you're in range, we highly recommend this free application.

Flixter's mobile movie-finder apps continue to dominate, providing an attractive wrapper for Flixster.com that downloads information about films, theaters, and showtimes for current and upcoming movies. Tap any entry to view a host of information, including listings times and reviews from such sites as Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, though you can also pipe in with your own. Those on a Wi-Fi network can stream quite decent full-screen previews, and if you feel no qualms purchasing tickets from a cell phone, Movies will route you to Movietickets.com for ticket sales. Movies keeps track of your ratings and movies on your to-see list.

Smart integration with Yelp can find you dinner before the show. Google Maps addresses geo-location needs. Adding a Netflix account gives you access to your queue, and letting Movies (optionally) talk to Facebook will broadcast your thoughts with friends. Since the app is practically useless without a data connection, it might be nice to see an optional offline mode for storing information about films. But as long as you're in range, we highly recommend this free application to filmseekers in Canada, the U.K., and the U.S.
