Reelgood review: One app, so many streaming or theatrical movies to discover

J.R. Bookwalter | Oct. 27, 2016
Reelgood makes it easy to find new movies to watch at the theater or a wide variety of streaming services, complete with push notifications.

These buttons are also a great way to rediscover digital movies you already own. Tap the desired logo, and Reelgood launches that provider’s app, where the selected title immediately begins playing. The same trick works for subscription-based services like Hulu as well.

My only real complaint is there’s no way to sort by release date; this would be particularly useful in Watchlist, for viewing current movies first, rather than alphabetical or by date added. Also missing is the ability to purchase tickets inside the app. You’ll still need Fandango or another service for that.

Bottom line

Reelgood makes it a snap to find a movie at your local theater or favorite streaming service. But tickets and digital purchases other than iTunes must be done elsewhere.
