This review originally appeared within iLounge’s iOS Gems series within the compilation article, iPhone Gems: Every Movie Finder + Trailer App, Reviewed. Additional details may be found in the original article.

On a more positive note, Avantar’s Showtimes (Free) is a free version of OneTap Movies, stripping out only a couple of its frills—movie posters and trailers—while keeping the rest of the interface almost entirely intact. It’s designed to look less impressive than OneTap Movies, and succeeds, but it was obviously created under the theory that there wouldn’t be competing free apps out there with more features. By the standards of the other free apps in this roundup, it’s only OK, but it does offer another option for those who just want showtimes and movie titles to quickly browse through. iLounge Rating: C+.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
