mobileAge has released the updated 2013 edition of the authoritative Leonard Maltin Movie Guide for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. In addition to over 300 new high quality concise capsule reviews and ratings, personal movie lists (favorites, recommendations, want to see, etc.) are now backed up/restored via Apple's iCloud. The app automatically downloads Mr. Maltin's current movie reviews every week.
The Leonard Maltin Movie Guide includes the ability to watch trailers, rent or buy movies from iTunes, and add a movie to one's NetFlix queue. The lists feature allows tracking the films you watch, want to see, and own. And the entire database is stored locally, so no network access is required to use the app. The 2013 version is optimized for iPhone 5 and is iOS 6 compatible.
