Flixster Windows Phone

Flixster has been seeing some more update action on Windows Phone recently. Especially when you consider that before the last two updates in August, it was last updated for Mango support a little over two years ago. More recently it received some much needed love for Windows Phone 8 and gave us some new features. Today we’re looking at another update.

We’re not seeing anything new with the latest update for Flixster. Here’s the Store description:

New features for Windows Phone 8:

  • Set movie posters as lock screen background
  • Voice-command Flixster app from your Start screen by saying "Flixster show me top movies," "Flixster show me nearby theaters," or "Flixster surprise me"

New features for Windows Phone 7.5:

  • Pin your favorite movies and theaters as live tiles
  • Integration with Bing search for mobile
  • Fast app switching

We’re pretty sure we saw all those features for Windows Phone 8 in the last update. So this might be a bug fix and general improvements update. Those Windows Phone 7.x changes appear to be old news too, we’re not seeing an update for the Windows Phone 7.x version of Flixster. Nonetheless, we’re happy to see the team over at Flixster pay more attention to Windows Phone 8.
