Flixster Updated for Q10 Support, Adds BBM Integration

by - -

If you’re anything like me, then you love to spend as much time as socially acceptable at a movie theater watching the latest flick. I pretty much enjoy everything, from action, to comedy, and even a well done musical from time to time. BlackBerry 10 has a great app that was updated today with two major features that will greatly improve what BlackBerry users think about it. That app is Flixster.

If you’re not familiar with Flixster, you can use it to look up movie descriptions, showtimes at local theaters (based on GPS location or by specific search), and even view trailers of the film. The app is coupled with Rotten Tomatoes, so you can find out what critics and viewers think of it based on it’s Tomatometer Rating.

The new update bring Flixster to version and adds support for the upcoming Q10, as well as BBM Integration. I updated the app and tested out the BBM connectivity, and it essentially lets you share the information about the movie. It sends your contact a link to Flixster’s page on the movie, as well as a link to download the app itself.

Speaking of downloading, head on over to BlackBerry World and get Flixster for free if you don’t have it already. If you do have it, get the upgrade and shoot me a BBM of the movie you’ll be watching this weekend!

Chris Esparza has been a member of #TeamBlackBerry since 2008 when he walked in to a T-Mobile store ready to buy a new phone after his old Samsung suffered some water damage. He had his eyes on another Samsung, but unfortunately, it was out of his budget. He went with the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 instead, because it was the cheaper option. It's probably the best impulse buy he has ever made, as BlackBerry changed his outlook on all things tech related and ignited a strong passion for the mobile industry. Since that 8100, he has owned only four different BlackBerry smart phones, including the Z10, which he received the day it was announced, as a perk for being a member of BlackBerry Elite. Chris loves meeting members of Team BlackBerry and will gladly add you to BBM if you request him. PIN: 2668C47E
