    Anyone know why? It's impossible to download right now... found out when I removed it from my iPad because I thought it wasn't working correctly, but then I couldn't find it in the store again.

    IMO Flixster works just as well, if not better.

    According to a recent post by Cyrus Najmabadi on Ars Technicia, Now Playing is Now Dead: One of the data providers wanted more money up front than he is willing to pay, and that's that. Some folks have asked if he could incorporate iAds into Now Playing in order to pay for this data, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

    RIP, Now Playing. You will be missed.
