FlickDirect, Inc. is expanding its innovative movie focused digital lineup with a brand new app built specifically for Apple Watch. Bundled with the Movie Hype app for iPhone, the new watch app will allow users to extend the already robust social movie going experience on to their wrist.
The watch app knows the runtime of all in theater and recent in home movie releases. By simply selecting the movie being viewed, the watch will display a running countdown timer with the exact length of the film.
The watch app is a perfect companion to its paired iPhone app, which can detect the theater and allow users to “check-in” to the film. Once checked in moviegoers will be able to interact through the app as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Planned enhancements to the watch app include customized alerts, such as interesting facts about the film time with the action occurring on screen and haptic feedback indicating a good time to make a dash to the lobby when a lull in the action is about to occur.
“It’s exciting to be one of the launch apps for such an innovative new platform as Apple Watch,” said lead developer Eric English “Wearable tech is the future and adapting it the movie going experience will delight and reward the user.”
Movie Hype lets users to follow movies; get breaking news alerts and release reminders; chat about upcoming movies with friends; watch trailers and check in to movies at the theater or at home.
