Flixster unveils iPhone app

'Movies' 3.0 gives digital platform for consumers

Online movie site Flixster has launched version 3.0 of "Movies," its free iPhone app.

The newest version of "Movies" offers movie ticketing via Movietickets.com; digital-download integration with iTunes; movie rental queue management with Netflix; and local restaurant listings through Yelp.

"Planning a trip to the movies is a one-stop experience with Movies 3.0," Flixster founder and CEO Joe Greenstein said. "It lets you search for recommendations from other users, find your local showtimes, invite friends, purchase tickets, make dinner plans and even choose your in-home entertainment - from wherever you are."

As of last week, Flixster said, the app had reached six million users.

Flixster also offers movie apps for the Palm Pre, the Blackberry and Android based devices.
