Apple has launched a new free app for U.S. residents that allows them to watch all the new movie trailers right on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, wherever they are.
Gone are the days when you needed a desktop computer to watch not just movie trailers, but any kind of video - locally stored, or streamed from the web.
Now, with devices like the iPhone and software like the iTunes Movie Trailers app from Apple, you can access “the newest and most exclusive movie previews in HD” anywhere you may find yourself.
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg as far as the app’s features are concerned:
“Browse trailers, clips, and featurettes for the biggest Hollywood blockbusters and independent cinema; view stunning HD photos; explore a year-long calendar of movie releases; find showtimes near you and get ticket info directly from your iPad or iPhone,” Apple explains.
The app lets you save favorite movies and theaters for immediate access anytime, search what’s playing at your local theater and even get tickets directly from your device.
It lets you save images to your iPad’s photo gallery to use them as wallpapers or to share them with others.
And you can browse top charts to view the most downloaded trailers, box office rankings, and top movies on iTunes that you can buy or rent.
iTunes Movie Trailers can beam content over to your big screen with AirPlay and Apple TV, and it supports iCloud to push your favorite theaters and movie trailers to all of your iOS devices.
The app calls for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2, iPod touch (3rd generation), or iPod touch (4th generation) and iOS 4.3 or later. Syncing with iCloud requires iOS 5.Download iTunes Movie Trailers app (Free)
