CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobio Networks today
announced the availability of Mobile Movie Times, the first mobile
application that enables moviegoers to find local movie details and buy
tickets on their handsets in three clicks or less. The free service launch
is in conjunction with Universal Picture's Nov. 17 release of Let's Go To
Mobile Movie Times takes the hassle out of watching the hottest new
films this holiday season by mashing up the Web services needed to get
movie listings, reviews, maps and buy tickets by phone. Users can quickly
search, purchase and have their tickets ready and waiting for them when
they arrive at the theater. Mobile Movie Tickets is the first movie
application that gives individuals the "tastiest bits of the Web" in three
clicks or less -- with minimal to no data entry required.
"Most mobile services are clumsy and counterintuitive because they
aren't built to recognize the individual's personal preferences or
location," said Ramneek Bhasin, Founder and CEO of Mobio Networks. "We've
developed a highly personalized user experience that is tailored to the
individual's tastes, demographic and geographic information. Unlike other
mobile services, Mobile Movie Times feels like it knows the user."
Mobile Movie Times is powered by a proprietary technology called
Context Synchronized Start (XSS) that imbeds users' preferences, so that
when they launch the application only the pertinent information is
displayed based on their profile. XSS also automatically delivers
synchronized information based on highly relevant factors such as time of
day and the user's location.
