Movie App to Connect Comic-Con Attendees to Hollywood Blockbusters
FlickDirect Inc. will unleash its movie centric mobile app ‘Movie Clock' on Comic-Con this July. Free copies will be available to attendees who spot the FlickDirect team on the floor or out and about town.
Movie Clock is the first  and only app to allow simple social interaction over various networks with a focus on upcoming movies. A single tap allows users to 'check-in' to upcoming films and interact with friends and followers around the globe.
Fans worldwide have used the app to connect with each other  for the summers hottest blockbusters. Over 3,600 fans (from 89 countries) of the highly anticipated Superhero film, ‘The Amazing Spider-man'  have already engaged around the unique social features of the app.
Eric English, President of FlickDirect Inc. and lead developer, has enjoyed helping movie fans communicate on a global scale. "The feedback we get from the app has been great." he said. "By checking in with each other, tweeting about the film, and counting down with friends, fans have been able to connect in new, revolutionary ways."
"It's also fun to be a part of the run up to a film such as ‘Spider-man' . A few days before a big release, app activity always spikes with the anticipation having been built up for so long."
Movie Clock's central feature is its unique ever-running countdown clock for movies coming soon to theaters. Users can easily search the extensive movie database for their favorite upcoming movie and set an alert to remind them on the film's day of release.
Nathan Rose, CEO of FlickDirect and avid app user said "Watching the days, hours, minutes and seconds tick by to ‘The Amazing Spider-man' has been really exciting. We have over 350 fans checked in through Movie Clock and more than 3600 unique users have used the app just for ‘The Amazing Spider-man. "
Once checked-in, users will be able to see how many others around the world are counting down with them and connect with new friends and followers who share the enthusiasm for their favorite films.
Other extended features of Movie Clock include the ability to find show times for local theaters based on your GPS coordinates, in-app ticket purchasing and newly added streaming movie trailers.
Movie Clock has a growing database of Movies with current release dates up to 2014. FlickDirect strives to include every movie regardless of genre. "If it's not there, just ask. I'll add it in personally!" Said Rose.
