Siri May Help with Movie Ticket Purchases in iOS 6.1

Tags:  ,

Apple’s virtual assistant Siri became a bit of a movie buff in iOS 6, now it will get a little smarter with the next version of iOS. According to 9to5Mac,the iOS 6.1 update will give the voice-command feature the ability to order movie tickets through Fandango.

To buy movie tickets using the voice activated virtual personal assistant, all you need to do is to speak to Siri to tell her to buy you the tickets for the movie you want to see. When you mention that you want to buy tickets to a particular movie, the theater information and showtimes will be displayed. When you click on “purchase tickets” you are sent to the Fandango app to finish the transaction and if you don’t have the app, you are prompted to install it. Siri will only purchase tickets for theaters in the United States and not every theater is participating in this feature. Those theaters that are compatible with Siri will be listed with a small movie ticket icon. It is possible that once the ticket is purchased, it would appear in Apple’s new Passbook app.

The feature is exclusive to the U.S., according to the report, and not all movie theaters will be part of the program. The report added that compatible theaters listed by Siri will have a small movie ticket.

    Hi there.. I hope you can help solve my problem..

    Almost a year ago, I’ve downloaded Wondershare Allmytube in my netbook. It’s a trial version, and user have only 10 chances to download videos outside YouTube. And since it’s a trial version, it leaves the “wondershare” watermark ON THE TOP LEFT of the video (NOT IN THE MIDDLE of the video) when I convert the videos to avi format. The converted(to avi) videos weren’t in HD qualities, but I think it’s good enough, so I’m fine with it. The HD qualities(mp4),which were the originals, stays in the “Originals” folder, UNDISTURBED of course. So… yeah.

    Despite the flaws, lack in this and that, IT’S BEEN A FRIGGIN’ BLAST. During the time Allmytube has been my loyal downloader, I think I’ve downloaded numerous– no, COUNTLESS videos. It’s like millions, if not thousands.

    And SIX f**king months ago my netbook was F**KING BROKEN. And it cannot be fixed because I refuse to pay for the repairment charge. So friggin expensive. And now the netbook screen was cracked because I punched it. The netbook always bring me troubles anyway.

    AND TO THINK THAT I HAVE NOT EVEN MADE IT TO FINISH WATCHING HALF OF HALF OF THE VIDEOS. GAH. FUCKKK. CURSE MY LIFE.

    Now I’m only using desktop computer, where it has to be plugged into a socket, all the separate things, lots of wasted time and blahblahblahyadayadayada.

    I’ve downloaded the same program again, BUT IT’S NOT THE SAME.
    It’s SO FREAKIN HARD TO DOWNLOAD videos. It’s ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. Up until now, I’v only managed to download ONE video.ONE=1.

    I did manage to convert it to avi,and the quality WAS(‘CAUSE ONLY ONE F**KING VIDEO) as good as the original(mp4, like HD quality).

    BUT, I must say that what really irritates/annoys/pisses me off (and I barely manage to restrain myself from destroying this annoying machine)was the f**king “wondershare” watermark.

    IT’S NOT WHERE IT SUPPOSED TO BE.

    IT’S IN THE TABOO PLACE, IN THE FREAKIN MIDDLE OF THE VIDEO.

    Help Me. I BEG YOU.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AND GOD BLESS YOUR KIND SOUL. (^.^)
