Learn About the News When it Happens

Instead of hearing about entertainment and film industry news days after the fact, or possibly missing it all together, the Film Today app can be used as a handy news source. The app gives you access to the most up-do-date industry news by following celebrities, journalists, studios, and various news outlets. It does all the digging for you and provides you with the information you're interested in reading. Arguably the best point about the app is the fact the news is in real-time, which is great when you’re out and about and only have your mobile device to rely on.

The app was updated just over two years ago when some bug fixes were made and it became possible to share news stories on Twitter. Since then there have been no updates yet the app still enjoys 4.5 out of five stars from users. While customer comments are mainly positive what some don't like is the fact you actually need to have a Twitter account in order to use this app. As well you’ll need an Internet connection to download and then read the content.

Features and Tools

To ensure that all the most important and interesting stories are provided, the Film Today app uses its own algorithm to search through its various sources. It finds only the most interesting stories and then is able to filter the results with the most interesting stories showing up at the top of the list. The information is constantly updated so that it is delivered in real-time. Stories can be shared through Facebook and Twitter.

The user interface comes off a bit dull and even cluttered at times, so this is an area the app could most definitely do with some improvements and changes. It would also be great to see additional tools added such as ones that customize the reading experience.
