CineShowTime, It’s Showtime: An Android App Review

August 3, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic
App Name: CineShowTime by Bynomed

Description: CineShowTime android version is an application for getting movie show times near your position or request.

How it works: CineShowTime is an application that allows you to get show times for current movies playing at your local theaters or near cities that you select. The allows you to search by theater or by movie. The app also allows you to save your theaters for easier access next time you need it.

Opinion: When I looked at this application, I didn’t see anything so groundbreaking that makes it stand out above the crown. The users interface is too plain for me. The black and white is too simple and is a bit of a turn off. The app does what it says and is very simplistic. I can do without it. If your french is up to par you can check out Bynomed’s youtube page here.

Ratings:

  • Speed (3/5) – This application is a little sluggish.
  • Features (4/5) – ┬áSpeech recognition search is a plus.
  • Theme (2/5) – Dull, very black and white .
  • Overall (3/5) – CineShowTime will get the job done after a few trials.

Pro: Speech recognition works well.

Cons: When you do the speech recognition for the city, it replaces your movie entry with the city’s entry.

Overall: App does what it says though it is a little buggy.
