Just when you think you’ve caught up with all of the movies that everyone’s talking about, another great animated film or a serious and poignant documentary comes out, and you’re left to do more catching up.
When it comes to films and celebrities, there is a lot to know about. To be on top of movies, you really have to live and breathe (and eat?) all things that are glamor, drama and gore. All of this keeping up, however, can take up a lot of time.
So why not keep track of all the movies out there with the Movies & Series app, developed by Richard Schiks? This app, a resource for all things movies and celebrities, is perfect if you ever need to find out what’s coming out in theaters or to impress your movie-fanatic friends.
Concept and Functionality:
Movies & Series is a great app for movie lovers, but also for anyone that likes watching television series. When you first log in to the app, Movies & Series will prompt you to search for some of your favorite movies and television shows since you can find basically anything that’s been in the theaters since the history of entertainment (so it seems).
Once you’ve created your list of favorites, you can go to each dedicated movie page and look up more information on the actors, directors and more — you can even download art from the movie to customize the Movies & Series app with.
Once you move on from that, you can explore the homepage, which is formatted in a carousel, and you can find everything from what’s popular, which movies are top grossing in the Weekend Box Office, what’s playing now, what movies will be coming out and much more.
You can even stay on top of movie news, watch trailers from past and future films and even find out which actors are celebrating their birthdays. If this navigation seems a little confusing, you can always refer to the menu section, where the same features can be found.
In addition to everything that already goes with the app, you can also look up funny movie mistakes of the day and, if you’re sharing this app with friends, family or a fellow film connoisseur, you can even create separate log-ins, so you can make sure that your movies and series don’t get mixed up with anyone else’s.
And if you want to take your app to the next level, there are purchases available. Trakt TV Integration, for example — a $0.99 upgrade — allows you to integrate Trakt TV if you have an account so that you can add upcoming episodes to your calendar.
If you think you have the ultimate movie lover’s app, you might want to check again with Movies & Series. It’s a great app that offers a wealth of entertainment knowledge, and also has fun facts that makes the app well-rounded.
On the other hand, because there is quite a lot of content in the app, sometimes it can get cluttered and overwhelming at times. The user interface of the app is not the most intuitive, but it is interactive. And as a heads-up, the app does not work offline, so you’ll have to save your movie-browsing once you’re off the subway.
Overall, once Movies & Series catches on within the film community, it’s sure to be a hit!
