Movie Pal: The Shazam Of Cinema

Posted by Jennifer Allen on May 17th, 2012

Shazam has done wonders for that moment where one hears a clip of a song and has no idea what the song actually is. Now, there's an app that promises to do the same for movie trailers. Movie Pal is that app.

All the user has to do is listen to a few seconds of a trailer with the app and it immediately tags the film for future reference. It uses this information to then remind the user of when it's coming out.

Further functionality comes from the options to see ratings, show times and even buy tickets from within the app. Hundreds of movie trailers can also be viewed and there are movie recommendations for what to watch on iTunes and Netflix. Movie Pal looks set to be an ideal way of keeping up to date with all things movies and just in time for summer blockbuster season to get into full swing.

Movie Pal is out now and it's free.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Fandor, an online indie film streaming service that caters to both independent film fans and the mainstream movie crowd, released an iPad app today. This move comes shortly after announcing a partnership with the Roku streaming set-top box back in November. Going mobile brings one of the web's largest collections of entertaining films that celebrate cinema to iPad users. The films within the collection include the likes of FILM SOCIALISME from the Legendary director Jean-Luc Godard. A magisterial essay on the decline of European civilization, the film was an official selection of the Cannes Film Festival. Fandor offers its users great films such as this as well as others not found anywhere else.

The app features a unique way in which to discover new films via the "Spinner" which offers members a way to have a film randomly picked for them or to select criteria such as era, genre or length before spinning. Members can also take advantage of integration with Twitter, Facebook and email to recommend their favorite movies with friends. The company supports indie filmmakers by sharing a portion of its subscription fee with them as well as with distributors. New members can sign up via a seven-day unlimited free pass on Fandor. Subscriptions range from $2.99 per week or $99.99 for the year.

Japanese Film Company Releases Pair of Production Apps

Posted by Jordan Minor on August 25th, 2011

Aoi Advertising Promotion, a large Tokyo-based TV commercial production company, has recently launched an initiative to bring their knowledge of film production to crews everywhere in the form of iPhone apps. The first of these apps, Director’s Finder and Frame Watch, are now available on the App Store in their original Japanese-language forms.

Director’s Finder allows location scouts to turn their iPhones into virtual cameras capable of simulating various kinds of film stock and lens focal points. This includes the ability the mimic over 50 real-world cameras by Arri, Sony, Canon, Panasonic, RED, Weisscam and more as well as standard film formats like 16mm and 35mm. The captured footage can then be shared via email along with GPS coordinates and other relevant data.

Frame Watch’s price is $2.99 compared to Director’s Finder’s current sale price of $7.99 ($15.99 normally and also available in a lite version) and its feature set is appropriately less robust. Basically it is a stopwatch with a calculator built-in that allows directors to easily determine frame rates. There are presets for 24, 30, and 60 frames per second.

Stay tuned for more info on Aoi’s upcoming film apps.
