Fandango today introduced a free movie app for Google’s Android platform at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The Fandango Movies, Times & Tickets app allows users to find movies and showtimes, view trailers, locate theaters, view fan ratings and buy tickets.
Users can find movies playing in their local area by using Android’s GPS feature and connecting to Google Maps for driving directions, or they can browse films under "Opening This Week", "Top Box Office" and "Coming Soon" features.
Movie fans can also add theaters to a "Favorites" list for faster searching and purchase tickets for more than 16,000 movie screens. Users can sign into their Fandango account to purchase tickets with their credit card stored online or securely store their credit card to the device for faster purchasing.
As a limited time offer users who download or upgrade the Fandango Android app now through Oscar night, March 7, 2010, can purchase tickets with no service fee.
