    "I am not a hardcore tv show or movie buff, but I like to keep up to date on what kind of shows or movies are currently out. With this app, I can do just that and even read other reviews or comments to see if I actually want to see it in the theater or wait until it comes out on DVD or tv. I even like that I can see past movies or tv shows that I haven't seen or even thought about watching."

    "As a movie and tv show lover I like trying good apps to pass time at work. I have been using Viki. It has all my native shows in one place. I really enjoy seeing these because they are not widely available where I currently live and work. It is the best one for me."

    "I wanted to watch Family Guy. I know, immature. I downloaded Hulu and I had to sign in with Google to verify my location. I don't know why honestly and I didn't like how obtrusive it was, so I went somewhere else."

    "Flixster used to be a very good app for movie lovers. After the redesign of the APP usability really plummeted. You used to be able to see dozens of moves listed at once and now its at max 3 movies with very large pictures. Flixster search also does not work for all movies, and even if you search for the movie name it does not show up in the results. "

    "I love Fandango a lot but lets face it I really don't ever need to tickets online. If i go to the movies, which is rare, I buy the tickets at the cinema. Therefore this is useless to me other than to see what is playing near me."
