Streaming media services is a fairly new industry and it is a growing one.

It’s Friday night and I am taking my lovely wife to see a film. Naturally, to find what’s playing and when, I look to my iPhone. This brings around a tough decision though. I have not one app for this job, but a folder full of them! Which should I use?

They all accomplish pretty much the same thing. Some, like IMDB, have tons of other features and really just focus on movie times as a non-core function, but it’s nice to have all of that information at your fingertips.

If you’re a Netflix subscriber, this is news you need to know.

I am a movie fanatic. There is not a week when I don’t watch at least one movie I haven’t seen before. Not to speak of all the TV shows I am following. While watching, I often have “geek moments” – those are times when I go “Oh, what’s that actor’s name?” or “What was the other recent movie this actress starred in?”

Before the time of iPhone and iPad, I had to move over to my Mac and fire up IMDB in Safari to check it out. With the IMDB app for iPad I can remain slouching on my couch and get all the information I desire. The comforts of the 21st century.
