Apple updates Trailers app with push notifications, better Rotten Tomatoes integration, and more

Apple has updated its iTunes Movie Trailers app with several new features and upgrades. The biggest new feature is the ability to get push notifications when movies marked as favorites hit theaters or iTunes. The in-app movie reviews have also been tweaked. Where previously you could only see a movies overall Rotten Tomatoes rating, you can now read full reviews right from within the app.

A few smaller features are also included in the update. You can now share links to movie trailers via AirDrop to other iOS devices, and a few bugs have been squashed. You can grab the app for free on the iTunes App Store. The full change log is below:

This update includes the following improvements:

• Add a movie to Favorites to be notified when it debuts in theaters or becomes available in the iTunes Store
• Read critic reviews provided by Rotten Tomatoes for movies that are in theaters, right from the app
• Share links to your favorite movie trailers using AirDrop
• Additional bug fixes and performance improvements

    Can you read all of the text descriptions of programs now? The way some end in mid-sentence would be embarrassing if a high school team were responsible, much less the world’s largest corporation. Exasperating.

      1. Apple isn’t the world’s largest corporation.
      2. There are limitations to what’s given.
