BoxOffice, a popular movie listing search and browsing application, has been re-released on the App Store under the name Now Playing. Apple previously pulled the application from the store, without giving the developer “any notification that they were doing it, or what their justification was for removing it.” The developer’s Google Code page has been updated to reflect the name change, but it remains unclear why the app was removed, or why its name was changed. Now Playing is currently available as a free download from the App Store.

Still downloads onto the phone as BoxOffice. The only change seems to be a “Now Playing” splash screen.
