Top Android App: Fandango
Please welcome Fandango to the Android Market! Fandango offers many of the features that you will find with the currently offered app Movies by Flixster
, however, Fandango offers you the easiest method of purchasing movie tickets from your phone. And for this review, please remember Fandango is only in a beta release.
Overall Score: 4.5/5

Ease of Use: 5/5
Similar to Movies by Flixster, you can view movies that are opening this week, current top box office hits, and movies in theaters near you. Instead of ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and Flixster users, you now have ratings from Fandango users (from Fandango.com). However, you currently can’t leave your own feedback which is a drawback to this app. Similarly, you can’t access trailers like you could with Flixster.
The one real advantage to using Fandango over Flixster is that you can purchase tickets very easily. I know that Flixster also allows you to purchase tickets but the process is more difficult and it seems many theaters don’t support tickets through Flixster’s affiliate but they do for Fandango.
If you want a lot of information about movies, trailers, and the ability to interact more with the app, choose Movies by Flixster. If you already know what movie you want to see and just need easy access to purchasing tickets on the go, choose Fandango. That is the simplest breakdown of these two apps and really what it all comes down to.
