Apple Updates iTunes Movie Trailers App for iPad and iPhone

Apple hasn’t done much with iTunes Movie Trailers since it released it in late 2011. The app, much like Flickster, offers up movie previews, reviews, showtimes, and other useful information regarding feature films. Recently, however, just in time for the summer blockbuster season, the iTunes Movie Trailers app for iOS devices has been updated with video quality selection and Fandango ticket purchasing.

Users will now see a small icon on the left-hand side of the playback controls, which, when tapped, allows users to choose between HD and SD quality when watching a trailer on the iPad or the iPhone . This allows users with lower-resolution devices to watch trailers more quickly, without having to wait for a larger video to load.

The update adds improvements to video playback, decreasing the time that it takes for a trailer to begin playing. The new version of the app also allows for movie tickets to be purchased through the Fandango app.Users must have the Fandango app installed to take advantage of the feature.

This new update of iTunes Movie Trailers provides the following improvements:

• You can now choose HD or SD quality while viewing a trailer on iPhone and iPod touch with Retina display and iPad
• Video playback has been improved—it now takes less time for a trailer to start playing
• Movie tickets can be purchased using the Fandango app
• Additional improvements to performance and stability

If you’d like to check out the latest version of iTunes Movie Trailers, you can find it in the App Store, for the both the iPad and iPhone, for free.
