Just in time for Christmas, movie theater giant AMC is bringing together two of the most talked about things in America: Hollywood and the iPad. First introduced in March, AMC has release an iPad app for its Yeah! online movie rental service. The app, which is available for free at the iOS App Store, “gives users access to a range of ‘iconic films’ that can be downloaded for 48 hours at a time,” according to a recent story on The Verve.
An Enhanced Viewing Experience
Watching films, however, is only part of the user experience. Other features of the AMC app include interviews, facts, and trivia that pop up during the movie. Additionally, the app also links to IMBD and Wikipedia to help users find information and a filmography on the stars they’re currently watching in the main feature.
Although the app is free, Yeah!’s enhanced movies cost $4.99 for a 48-hour rental, while those without bonus features start at just $1.99. Currently, around 30 of the more than 300 titles available through Yeah! including Dirty Dancing, Reservoir Dogs, Caddyshack, and The Shining, feature “curated elements,” but by the end of 2014 that number is expected to climb to more than 80.
