On the 14th July 2010, Can Factory a London iPhone app development company, released a free Cineworld iphone app, making them the only UK cinema chain to offer its customers film information from a dedicated iPhone application.

Designed and developed by Can Factory, and described as ‘the complete cinema package for your pocket’, the Cineworld application provides cinema-goers with quick and easy access to film content, alongside the ability to purchase tickets directly for Cineworld’s cinemas in the UK and Ireland.

Film-fans can use the iPhone app to locate their nearest Cineworld cinema and access detailed information including: facilities, contact details, maps, directions, and screening times. Users can also select their ‘Favourite’ cinemas for easier access to their local listings.

In addition, the application provides access to film trailers, and details of upcoming releases.

Due to the large number of Cineworld cinemas, Can Factory also developed a unique solution to allow users to simultaneously compare film schedules and listings across multiple venues.

Once users have made a decision, they can quickly and securely book tickets via the application.

Luke Roberts, Head of Marketing for Cineworld, comments, “We know our customers are constantly on the move, so in response we’ve made it even easier for them to access the very latest information from our cinemas across the UK. From checking cinema times to watching trailers our iPhone application and mobile website gives cinema film fans everything they need in their pocket.”

Warren Kerrigan, MD, Can Factory said, “Having established a long and trusted working relationship with Cineworld, we fully understand their key business requirements, and are therefore able to advise on e‐business strategy to help develop a best in class application.”
