Flixster is the most popular movie application on Facebook and has become it’s own social network at Flixster.com Like any other social site you can add friends, send messages, and even IM on the site. It’s an easy way to network with similar people since you can see other user’s movie ratings and reviews but also a percentage 1-100 of how similar your tastes are in movies.
Flixster has had an application available in the App Store for some time which allows you to view movies currently in theaters and on DVD. You can view reviews and watch the trailers. You can also login on the app and leave your own movie reviews and ratings right on the app. Now Apple has posted the top ten all-time downloaded free apps and Movies by Flixster is number 5.
These features set it apart as the premier movie app on iOS and designate it a social media application! Rating movies may sound like a weak way to go about doing some social networking but people are passionate about cinema and the application will automatically match you up with people who have similar tastes.
Making contacts and adding friends directly from the application can be easy and the more movies you rate and review the more people who will be likely to find you and add you as their friend.
In addition to being a great social tool, the Flixster app is also a great local movies tool. you can look up all your local theaters and check showtimes. You can read critic and user reviews and watch trailers. If you are at all into movies you need this application.
