Wigglehop is an iPhone and iPad app that is dead simple to use to help us select movies to go and see – A simple task for an app that is able to do so with an elegant and intuitive design. Wigglehop isn’t just a movie planner, it’s also a backup movie planner. Because even best laid plans can fall apart, Wigglehop recommends and lets us plan for times when dinner may involve two bottles of wine instead of one, thus resulting in being an hour past schedule. With Wigglehop, we simply pick up the next movie in our plan and we’re back in business.
There are two major movie app competitors Fandango and Flixster, both of which are packed with features, but they don’t make the experience of finding and planning a movie to see nearby easy. That’s the brilliance of Wigglehop – it make the process of finding and planning going to the movies easier then anyone else. We start by entering your city or zip code and then Wigglehop will shows us theatres near by and we tap to pick which ones we prefer. Do note though that the app is only for US residents currently.
The next steps are as simple, select the movie we want to see and the time we want to see them. Once we’ve set our plan we can then also save all the movies we “might” want to see and choose times over larger spans so that we can plan for the unexpected.
Wigglehop may not be as feature packed as its competitors, but as a free iPhone, iPad and web app it’s a great solution for those that want to simply plan, research and just get to the movies without being distracted with other tools. Everyone that uses the app will be impressed by its intuitive workflow and minimalistic design that makes the user experience fun.
