New movie search app from Google



If you’re one of the many who has no time to check out movie listings, and you own a smartphone, then life just got better for ya.

Google launched an upgrade today that adds a new movie search feature for iPhones, Palm WebOS or those Android-powered smartphones.

Searching for movies is now more efficient. Just go to and search for “movies” and then click the “more movies link”. You are then presented with options including a list of the day’s movies or you can select movies by theaters.

For the list of the day’s movies, buttons are included for playing trailers, and other info are displayed including categories, movie posters, show times and nearest movie theaters. Additional details (cast, synopsis, etc.) of a movie is also available when users click a movie poster.

Browsing by theater provides uses a map of the closest theater. Choosing a particular movie house then lets you see what movies are being shown there.

This new movie feature is available only in the U.S., U.K, Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
