It may not be the snazziest of movie related apps out there, but it’s certainly a worthy addition to your app library and fans of RowThree will likely get some use out of the very clean controls, the smoothness of its functionality and easy to navigate interface.

  1. Looks good, however I noticed that the comments don’t show up in the posts.

    • That’s true – for now that is the way it has to be. However, there is a separate button to check out all of the latest comments.

      • Yeah, I saw the button. However, when you click one of the comments, it just brings you to the comment-less post. :/

        • It shouldn’t. It should (and does on my phone) take you to the full comment. Then from there you can click on “view original post” which will open up your phone’s browser and take you to the web version of the post – complete with all comments and where you can leave your own thoughts.

          Does this work for you?

  2. Installed in both iPhone and Android, looks great.

    In an ideal world I guess we’d have the ability to reply to comments directly in the app – which (unless I’m completely missing something) we don’t currently have.

    BUT then again, lord knows what the R3 comment universe would be like if we had the ability to comment while mobile. ;)

    • Hopefully that is something I’ll be able to implement in the future Matt. Because I agree that would be awesome. Unfortunately my coding skills are still a little on the lackluster side so that will sit on the back burner for a while. But it’s definitely in R&D mode!

      • No worries, it’s still a huge value-add for the site. But in my work life I’m known for being the guy who says “Great! Now why doesn’t it do X?” so I figured I’d give you a taste of that. :)

    • So as we discovered on the Cinecast last week, apparently you CAN leave comments via the mobile app… sorta.

      After you see a comment you want to reply to, just click on “view original post” at the bottom of the comment. That will use your mobile browser to take you to the replay thread in the post. So it’s sort of an external way of leaving a comment while on the go.

      Best I can do for now.

  3. Love it. It’s much better to access the site on my phone using this, but yeah the comments thing is the only slight niggle. Great start though.

  4. We can call this the “beta” version. LOVE it so far though.

    Very cool. Simple and functional; definitely echo everyone else with respect to the comments, but other than that it’s very solid so far.
