I wish I could open my library in another media player because the flixster media player is very limited.

Author did the bare minimum

Yes, it plays movies. Sometimes. Apparently the 5+ GB of movies it DOWNLOADED aren't playable unless I'm ONLINE. Which I'm usually NOT when I want to watch a movie on my tablet -- more often, it's on a long trip with wifi that's intermittent at best. <soapbox> Note to the corporate media giants and "upper echelons" that encourage Digital Restrictions Management, this is one of the reasons people torrent movies/music/etc.: not because they can't afford them, but because they get a better experience FOR FREE than they can when they PAY FOR IT legitimately. If you outlaw free (unrestricted) media, the only ones with free media will be the outlaws. Or something. </soapbox> Anyway, if it could actually play movies offline, that'd be great.

"Go To" App

The best app for checking on current movie ratings and reviews. Also, the PC desktop app is perfect for watching/downloading your online movie collection - the digital copy you get when you buy Blu-ray (Ultraviolet).

Flixster great app, just missing one small feature

It is very useful and the buy an electric copy of a disc you already own is great. The only feature I wish it had was to be able to download a copy of the movie locally instead of having to stream. It would make it a more useful app for trips.

Could be better but still great

Could use a few more features and some updates, but I really like the Rotten Tomatoes integration.

Windows App sadly lagging

I very much enjoy Flixster on iPad, but many of the options, choices, etc. are missing from the Windows Store version.

Ok app

No chromecast support even though android and ios has it. I should be able to play my downloaded flixster files with it via chrome cast like those other operating systems. Also to download files you have to use the desktop pc version. Ok for tablet/desktop owners, bad for win phone users. From my hp stream7

Doesn't work for large movie collections...

Neither this app nor the Windows Phone app will allow you to access your UV movies if you have a large (several hundred title) movie collection. This problem has been presented to Flixster numerous times over the couple of years that these apps has been out and Flixster continues to ignore it.

This Great App has turned Bad

"This is a great app. There are a few down sides though: most features are very simple in format and, unlike other Flixster apps on Android and Apple, the features are more interactive and informative than on Windows 8. I would like to see a better Movie Theatre section in the future." This is what I said so many months before, and this app has only gotten worse. Flixster actually lost features instead of improving them. You can no longer rate movies, and of course, still you can't select movie theatre locations, more than 10 miles. Apple and Android versions are way better.
