Fandango arrives on iPad, adds Pulse, mapping features

updated 04:20 pm EST, Wed December 22, 2010

Scales video, photos

Fandango has ported its self-named movie app to the iPad. The title now includes The Pulse, a visual indicator of ticket sales, which can be viewed as a list or on a map. Maps are also used to help locate theaters with showtimes and tickets. Reviews and movie-related tweets can all be accessed on one screen, and trailer, video, photo and interview content should similarly take advantage of the iPad's larger display.

The app helps discover which movies are playing and where for the sake of enabling in-app ticket sales. iPad users also get a tips and tricks section teaching how to use the software.

Fandango for the iPad requires iOS 3.x or later. It's a free download from the App Store.

    Still hasn't replaced Flash...

    For theaters that use reserved seating (which is AMAZING!), uses a flash applet to load the theater's seating plan and let you chooses your seat. When you try to buy tickets using the iOS app, it pops up a dialog that says it doesn't support it - and BLAMES THE iPAD!.

    This has been an issue for Fandango for several years now, and they still haven't fixed it. Yet they have theaters that use solely assigned seating locked into contracts! There's no way to buy tickets to these theaters from a mobile device (OK, there's one Android phone that runs Flash now).

    This is pure laziness on Fandango's part. They could have rewritten this by now, and maybe even improved the awful web experience while they're at it!
