    Each update keeps getting better. This update includes links to the movie's IMDB page, and expanded cast and director information.

    The last update was the best yet: it included upcoming movies.

    This continues to be the best movie app in the store, by far. :)

    Agreed.

    I was checking some movies in Now Playing before the update came out and then my friend asked me who the cast was in "I Saved the King of England" but I couldn't find that out through Now playing.

    I got surprised when I came home and saw that they added that feature haha. :D

    yea I have all the different ones and I like this one the most, The only feature I want now is the ability to save CC info so that you could buy tickets through the app with a tap or two...

    You don't actually buy tickets through the app itself, but rather it connects you to Fandango, where you buy them there. You can save CC info on Fandango.

    What *I* would like to see is movietickets.com support for the theatres that aren't part of Fandango. I live in NYC, and most of the theatres I frequent are Fandango ones -- but for the few that aren't, it's frustrating to have to exit the app and go to movietickets.com for tickets.

    Good idea!

    Write to the developer with the suggestion. He checks in here every once in a while, but he responds to e-mail very quickly.

    Hi,
    As you know, you have a great application that the iphone community loves. we were discussing the previous update and I had an idea. I truly believe its one of the few good apps in the store and was just wondering how you would feel about a, new on dvd section. This way it would truly be a "Now Playing" application.

    Thanks again for a great App,
    Me

    I believe the Movies app has that feature? If the Now Playing adopts it, then I'm going to ditch Movies.app

    Very cool, thanks!

    I really appreciate developers who are on the ball, and produce apps that I can feel comfortable recommending to people.
