Moreover, most of these applications include reward programs for their continuous movie customers though we will not recommend any specific application of this type as you are certainly attached to the ones that are already available near your vicinity.

In these applications the users can also look for the new and old movie trailers, news about movies, some behind the scene clips for entertainment and other things as well. But we believe IMDb is way better at performing these functions than these application but we would also motivate you to go with a perfect theater application for ticket sales as they will be the most accurate to buy tickets than any of these application. But nonetheless these services are also useful applications that provides what they say and works great most of the time but if we consider the movie news applications than Feedly, Flixter and Flipboard are slightly the best options.
