SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/12 -- Fandor, the premiere online destination for watching and sharing exceptional films, today unveiled an iPad app as a new way for members to discover and enjoy some of the world's best movies. Fandor on iPad gives members access to Fandor's curated library of over one thousand independent and international films and makes it easy to share them with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
Fandor caters to both independent film fans and mainstream movie lovers with one of the web's largest collections of entertaining films that celebrate a love of cinema. Fandor provides access to great films that you can't find anywhere else, including titles often overlooked by conventional movie services. By leveraging Facebook for frictionless sharing, Fandor allows members to help spread the word about movies they love.
"Fandor is a dream for movie lovers, offering an abundance of entertaining content and providing new ways to discover amazing, hard to find films," said Fandor founder and CEO Dan Aronson. "With Fandor's iPad app, it's easier than ever to watch and share great films anytime, anywhere."
The Fandor iPad app's Spinner offers members a fun new way to find great movies to watch. Members can hit "spin" to be presented with a choice from Fandor's library to watch instantly or add to their queue. Or, members can narrow down the Spinner's recommendations by locking in a specific era, genre or length of movie before spinning.
"The Spinner helps you navigate the world of independent movies without overwhelming you with choices," continued Mr. Aronson. "It's especially useful for finding great short films on the go."
With Fandor's new iPad app users can:
- Discover movies based on genre, length, and era using the Spinner
- Recommend films to friends via Twitter, Facebook and email
- Connect and watch on a TV with iPad 2
- Rate movies and manage film queue
