Redbox has announced a new Android app that will let movie fans find what movies are in stock at Redbox locations near them. The app follows the iPhone version that has been around for a while now.
The Android app offers search capability that lets the user find kiosks close by, reserve films, and the app provides box art for the films and a synopsis of the movie so you can see if the flick sounds interesting. The app will work on Android devices running Android 1.6 and up and is on the Android Market right now.
“The free redbox Android app and upgraded iPhone app provide mobile users an interactive portal to view and rent new release movies from any of our more than 26,000 locations nationwide,” said Gary Cohen, senior vice president of marketing and customer experience, redbox. “Our online and mobile tools instantly connect consumers to our retail locations nationwide, delivering real-time access to inventory at any location from virtually anywhere.”
