It seems every summer the blockbusters keep getting bigger and badder, and with fantastic mobile apps to purchase tickets and keep us entertained and informed, it's mobile movie madness for all!
IMDB: IMDB is the big daddy of all movie (and television) reference sites, and their huge suite of apps delivers a strong user experience. From reviews and photos to trivia and goofs, IMDB's got everything to satisfy the movie lover before and after watching their favorite movies, new and old. With IMDB Buzz and IMDB Trivia you can also get your daily dose of gossip and news, as well as test your movie knowledge in a fun game.
Fandango: Ticket ordering has never been simpler than with Fandango's plethora of mobile apps. Especially with blockbuster releases selling out opening weekends, you can easily buy your tickets in advance and avoid the lines/crowd/sellouts. Now if only they could do something about that transaction fee.
Rotten Tomatoes: If you care about movies (which we assume you do, since you've read this far) and you care to find out whether a movie is loved or panned by critics before you go see that newly released flick, Rotten Tomatoes is a one-stop shop for compiling critic ratings.
Netflix: As much as those movie trailers will try to convince you otherwise, you don't have to only watch in the theater. Netflix lets you stream movies straight to your mobile device. No matter how much someone will argue that it's not a great experience on such a small screen, consider that you get to watch a movie anywhere at anytime. That sounds like a pretty good option to us.

It's fantastic seeing such great movie websites putting so much effort into their mobile apps and websites. We pity the developers for having to develop unique apps for so many different devices, but it's great for us users, as each app delivers a cohesive user experience that stays true to their platform. Just don't go using these apps IN the actual movie theater while everyone's enjoying the show.
