7 Great Movie Apps for the IPhone ...

Chances are, if you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you’ve discovered how many amazing apps there are, for all sorts of things, from playing the pan flute to talking like a robot to tracking sports scores. But a check of my own iPhone apps reveals how much I love movies — I have more than a dozen movie apps on my phone! All of them are available on iTunes, and best of all, they were free… here are 7 great movie apps for the iPhone

1 IMDb

IMDb Price: FREE at itunes.apple.com
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used this app to tell me who that actor is from that movie, you know, the one about the guy in the shirt… or that actress who looks so familiar, but I can’t remember her name. I’ve even used it to settle movie-related disagreements… it’s so handy!

2 The Oscars®

The Oscars® Price: FREE at itunes.apple.com
I love the glamour and excitement of the Academy Awards, and I like to stay up-to-date on all of the nominations, stars, and gossip… and this app lets me do all of that and more! Now, what to wear, what to wear…

3 Fandango

Fandango Price: FREE at itunes.apple.com
Find out what’s playing, when, and where, then buy your tickets with this handy, easy-to-use movie app for your iPhone. I’ve been using Fandango for years on my PC, and now I can use it on the go… sweet! Don’t have an iPhone? No worries… you can use it on your iPad instead.

4 Blockbuster

Blockbuster Price: FREE at itunes.apple.com
Add DVDs, Blu-Rays, and even video games to your membership viewing queue with this little app from Blockbuster. You can also see what’s available at your local Blockbuster store, and get movie synopsis and reviews, too!

5 Netflix

Netflix Price: FREE at itunes.apple.com
Do you use Netflix instead of Blockbuster? Then this is the movie app for you! You can do a lot more with this one than with the Blockbuster app too, like finish watching movies from your home TV or computer, and stream them live to your phone or iPad no matter where you are.

6 Moviefone

Moviefone Price: FREE at itunes.apple.com
I love the interactivity between the Moviefone app and Facebook. It lets you share movie times and info with friends and family, and get instant feedback from them. It’s also loaded with information about all of your favorite stars, movies, and more!

7 Movies by Flixster, with Rotten Tomatoes

Movies by Flixster, with Rotten Tomatoes Price: FREE at itunes.apple.com
I adore Rotten Tomatoes, and I almost always agree with their rating and review system, so I’m thrilled that I can take RT with me everywhere I go! You can browse movies, buy them instantly through iTunes, and even play fun trivia games. Cool!

Those are just a few of the movie apps I have on my iPhone right now, and I’m always looking for more! Which of these movie apps do you use, or is there another one you’d like to recommend?
