A book should never be judged by its cover – certainly holds true for CinemApp, an app which, despite having a rather minimalistic interface, is pretty handy. At first glance, the app looks like a mere RSS feed reader, but it is much more than that if you are a cinema person and like to stay up to date with the latest news coming out of Hollywood. CinemApp has everything you hope to see in an app related to movies and cinema. Read on to find out everything about the features offered by this new addition to the entertainment section of Windows Phone 7’s Marketplace.
The app has built-in screenshot support and you can enable that feature in the Settings menu. Apart from that, you can open any page you are viewing in CinemApp in Internet Explorer as well by expanding the bottom bar. The app offers 4 main sections.
Top 10 Movies
As the name implies, by viewing the contents of this section of the app, you can stay up to date with what’s currently hot on the box office. Tapping on any of the listed titles will take you to its description page. The business that particular movie has done so far is displayed with its name.
The most interesting section of the app is this one, which scours the web for the latest happenings in the glamorous world of cinema. You can share news items over Facebook and Twitter or via email. If you tap an artist’s name in a paragraph, you will be taken to his or her dedicated page on CinemApp.
The reviews in this app are pretty to-the-point, and designed to let you know the essentials without taking up too much of your time. You can email an article to anyone or add a comment of your own to it through the Disqus comment system.
CinemApp has a rather nice Coming Soon section on which you can view both the description of the titles and their trailers. For some of the movies, you can even buy tickets online, right from within the app.
CinemApp might be in need of a major interface makeover, but that does not diminishe its usefulness by any means. It is a free app and if you are in to movies, do give it a try. Link to the app’s Web Marketplace page is given below.
