    Is anyone having trouble with Flixster since the upgrade? I can open the app but can't locate theatres near me. There is an error message about long/lat. Google map works fine.

    Mine doesn't work either. It posts the same message as the original poster has. I have an unmodified Pre...

    EDIT: After a wipe and reinstall, I still don't get any information for any theater near me, but now the error message reads simply:

    Cannot retrieve movie information for this location. Rather than the odd lat/longitude thing...

    Yeah it will find my theater, but it can't retrieve any showtimes.

    Is it just me or does anyone find the loading time for Flixster pretty rediculous? I mean, it's a pretty bucket of pop corn, but I don't like staring at it for 20 seconds until the App opens. Nothing worse than being with a girl, trying to show her how spiffy your phone is and show her what movie you wanna take her too, and she starts tapping her fingers asking what's taking so long? lol

    Same here, it will find the theatres but no showtimes. I even removed and reinstalled with no success. No big deal though, Fandango is just as good IMO.

    Yeah I was always pretty unhappy with the load times, but what keeps it on my device is because it uses RottenTomatoes as its source for reviews. So if I know what I want to see and want showtimes I will just load Fandango.

    Same here will not get showtimes. Pretty weak sauce if you ask me, 1.2 has been up for a while.

    Can anyone confirm this is a 1.2 issue and not a server-side issue? I just tested it and run into this problem of not showing showtimes.
  17. #17  
    My showtimes don't work either in 1.2.1 (never tried the app previously) :-( I tried both entering ZIP codes and also using the location feature, but neither work.

    I find Fandango to be a faster app, but like others said, I want rottentomatoes reviews.

    Yeah I keep both around for different reasons. I use Fandango now to look up showtimes, and use Flixster for reviews and for info when new DVD's/Blurays come out.

    It's funny isn't it? I guess you can't get reliable ratings in the same app you're buying tickets with.

    Having same problems with showtimes location. Started with 1.2 I believe.
