Fandango Movie App Comes To iPad

The iPad's app store continues to flourish. With many tablet makers still scrambling to catch up with Apple's bombshell, the iPad's app store is showing no signs of slowing down. The amount of applications available for the 9.7" version of iOS is impressive, and now, there's even a customized version of the Fandango app. Fandango is a movie ticket buying service, widely used by people to reserve tickets in advance to ensure they get a seat to shows that are likely to sell out.

It's available now in the App Store, and the iPad-specific build includes quite a few new features. That includes: "The Pulse," a visual representation of the company's hottest ticket sellers, viewable in both list and map formats; movie reviews from professional critics and film fans alike, plus movie-related tweets, all on one large Multi Touch screen; map integration that knows a moviegoer's location and helps her find titles, theaters, showtimes and tickets; expanded video, photos, trailers, clips and exclusive interview features that take advantage of the large, high-resolution HD display.

Of course, the app is free to download, but those movie tickets definitely aren't. Can't necessarily have your cake and eat it too!

Sure... why watch a movie on the pad you already have in your lap when you can use it to find a place that will charge you much more to sit behind some 6'2" obnoxious loud-talker who thinks he's funnier than MST3k?

I'd rant more, but the wife made me promise that I would.... take her to the movies in a few minutes.  I'll be the guy sitting in front of you.
