Fandango's earliest and greatest successes in the mobile space have come on iOS devices, and this new app brings Fandango fans the compelling moviegoing content they love to Apple's latest blockbuster device, iPad.

The Fandango App for iPad refines popular features of Fandango's previous apps, and adds new ones, including:

  • "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.

A complete list of app features can be found at www.fandango.com/mobile.

"It was important for us to create an app that was tailor-made for iPad, taking advantage of its large, high-resolution display and Multi Touch interface," says Jessica Yi, head of product for Fandango. "We think film fans will enjoy browsing from their couch or the local coffee house for showtimes, fan reviews, exclusive clips, trailers, and tickets for TRUE GRIT, LITTLE FOCKERS, GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, TRON: LEGACY, BLACK SWAN, THE KING'S SPEECH and many other movies throughout the holiday season."

The Fandango App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
